Thanks for the info. I can wait 2 days, but in the meantime as to the problem; it looks as though one of the tub gaskets is leaking (no problem w/ the tub that can be seen); not sure how to go about tackling it without a schematic.

I know washer leaks can be a concern.  It may be small and repairable or it may be a larger item like the tub seal or more and require major repairs. If you have not already done so, to access the tub area to verify the leak, remove the two screws towards the bottom of the front panel. Once you have the screws out slide the panel down and remove it. Then you have access to the inside of the washer. If you are not, able to determine where it is leaking, plug the washer in, and start a cycle. While keeping your hands out of the washer, look for the leak when it is filling. Once it starts to leak, unplug the washer before you put your hands in the washer.You want to check for:

  • Water faucet hose connections at the back of the washer. Look for leaks or loose connections. Make sure that the rubber washer is in place on the hoses.
  • Leaks in the drain hose.
  • Inlet water hose connections on the back of the washer. Check in the same manner that you checked the faucets.

Before examining the pump and tub seal, unplug the washer .

Use the exploded diagrams at Sears Parts Direct and the image below to see the tub seal and pump parts.  You can also check to see if the needed part is still available and the cost.  This may help you decide if you want to tackle repair for a 1987 washer.  If it is just the tub seal, the cost is not that much, and not too much work. If it is not the just the top half of the tub seal, the entire tub will have to come out.  I recommend having a technician make these repairs.  A Sears technician can be scheduled at Sears Home Services.  Here is a brief description of the process.

  • Unplug the washer to disconnect electrical power and shut off the water supply. NOTE: Internal metal edges can be sharp. Protective gloves are recommended for this procedure.
  • Remove the agitator cap and the agitator from the spin basket.
  • Remove the bottom front panel of the washer. There should be two screws at the bottom of the front panel that need to be removed. You can view the parts list diagram for your washer on the Sears Parts Direct website. This may help you with the disassembly.
  • Remove the top panel of the washer.
  • Remove the tub ring.
  • Remove the spin basket from the tub.
  • Remove the trunnion. There should be a lock plate on the top that needs to be loosened so that you can slide the trunnion off of the top of the shaft.
  • Remove the top half of the tub seal.
  • Disconnect the air hose for the pressure switch, the motor shield and any other connections on the tub.
  • Remove the bolts holding the tub to the leg & dome assembly.
  • Lift the tub off of the transmission shaft.
These instructions may not be complete. You may run into obstacles that you would have to overcome based on your mechanical experience.
