I currently own an Amana washer, model no. LWA10AW. A few months ago it started leaking about 2-3 cups of water. It has started to shake while it is in the spen cycle and continuley gotten worse.

If the tub seal is leaking, you’ll need to replace the hub and seal kit on this puppy.

Time and pain–that’s what awaits you in this repair journey to Hell, Budrow. And there’s a fair chance that this will be a one-way trip, too, since your hours of weeping and gnashing of teeth may not result in a successful repair. How much time and pain? Let’s just say that it’s off the scale on the SUDS-o-meter. This is one of those jobs that makes even crusty old appliance warriors wet themselves and pretend they have a bad phone connection when they get a call for one of these jobs.

Ahh, Grasshopper, let this be your wakeup call. But if, after reading my wise admonitions, you think you have the cohonas for this job, then here are a couple resources that’ll hepya:

Do you hear your phone ringing yet?
