Quick Qs to dadoes - IWL16 leak
Well, after 8 trouble-free years my F&P IWL16 developed its first problem: after washes a small puddle started showing from underneath the front edge of the washer.
Tipping the washer back it appears it's a very slow drip coming from the pump rotor, just above the motor. The motor seems A-OK so far, but with water dripping onto the top of it and over this concerns me a bit.
I assume there are no replaceable parts within said rotor, and it's a "pull and replace the whole thing" kind of repair, right? And since the motor was getting water on it would you normally go ahead and do it too, or should I wait till it fails (assuming it will)?
Lastly, a cursory search found the best prices at appliances.net (here is the part I believe I need: http://www.genuineapplianceparts.net/product/525884P/525884P-Motor-Rotor/). Are you aware of any place with lower/better prices?
Many thanks in advance.
