whirlpool washer
« on: July 18, 2009, 01:35:26 PM »

My washer is leaking from the bottom front.  When the water starts fillling in the tub the water starts to come out from under the bottom front.  Also I can move the tub around alot.  So does that mean that the tub is loose or off track

Model lsr5132pq0

Sounds like the water pump is leaking. This is a very common problem and one that is easy to repair.

Simply remove the washer cabinet and take a look at the water pump.
This repair guide will show you how to take the cabinet off and how to remove the water pump.

I looked up the model of your washer and it uses water pump part # 3363394.

We have them in stock at this URL.

Also I can move the tub around alot.  So does that mean that the tub is loose or off track

You may want to remove the agitator and take a look at the large spanner nut that holds the tub in place.

Unless it's been a problem I would guess what you are seeing is normal movement.
