Whirlpool Cabrio washer leaking. Repairmen said too high RPMs causing splashovers. Any solutions?
Whirlpool Cabrio washer model WTW6200SW0 purchased in 2006 from Sears. When 1 yr old it started leaking small puddles, mostly near the front of the machine. Three Center Pt. Energy repairmen have looked at it. they concluded it is from high RMPs causing water to splash over the tub ring and down inside of the machine housing. They and I spoke to Whirlpool over the phone on two different occasions. Whirlpool does not acknowledge a problem or recall. I spoke to Sears technician over the phone. He suggested I purchase a tub ring. However, the part (W10130806) is already factory installed on the machine. Water's leaking into my subfloor so I can't just ignore it. Any suggestions?

i know how inconvenient it can be to have a leaky washer since this can definitely cause some water damage. while you are waiting for an expert answer, i did manage to find two different links that each provide a detailed possible fix for your problem. i hope my links are useful.

i'm surprised that whirlpool told you there was no know problem or history of this.
there was not a recall or flash issued on this problem but there was a service pointer which is not as bad as a flash or recall.
the service pointer was serial number specific. check the serial number in the image below and see if your washer is in the range of the pointer.
you can also check the picture of the tub ring and see if you have the old one or the new and improved tub ring.
if you have the older style then replacing the tub ring should correct this problem. the water was from the dispenser and not from to many rpm’s .
give me a reply with what you have and we'll try to resolve this problem.
