Whirlpool Washer LSR5232LQ0 Stopped and Leaking
« on: November 19, 2011, 07:00:06 PM »
My washer was going and after it stopped I noticed water on the floor.  I opened the lid and it was full and had stopped during the rinse cycle. 

Tried stopping and starting it but that didn't do anything.  I kinda forgot about the water and was checking breakers, plugged something else in to make sure that power outlet worked.  Plugged it back in and tried to start again and something was buzzing.  I was in a hurry to get somewhere so I left it and don't remember exactly where the buzzing was coming from.

Trying to figure out what would cause it to stop working and start leaking at the same time.

Planning on trying to let it fill and drain with the case off so I can look for the leak, but otherwise stuck.  Suggestions on what to try to find both problems whether its one problem or two?

Sometimes you just have to get your hands dirty.  Turned out to be two different problems at the same time.  Water valve was leaking and baby sock in the pump
