after washing an unusually large load the washer started to make some strange noise, it sounded mechanical like a frayed belt or broken impeller in the water pump. I turned off the unit to avoid further damage but someone restarted it and the water wounded up on some of the water ended up on the floor, the washer did complete the spin cycle, but when it starts to fill water spills out. I checked for the drain and inlet hoses, but I don't know how to access the components with out damaging the enamel. i only have a schematic of the electrical circuits but no mechanical drawings.

can you tell me how to open the unit so that I can get to the internal components this model is a combination washer dryer do i need to remove the dryer to access the washer or can the front and sides of the washer be removed for access.

Front panel comes off the washer. Remove the two "Robertson" screws (they need a square drive - DO NOT try to use a Phillips!) at the bottom and pull the panel down. You should be able to see what's going on.

thank you that's what I needed to know. Now that I opened the unit I found a crack in the pump housing which is what I was expecting and a small hole on the hose that connects from the outer bowl to the pump. I removed the pump but the hose seems to be permanently bonded to the bowl with some red adhesive, I don't see any clamps or fasteners that will allow me to remove hose. Can this hose be removed or will I need to patch it somehow to stop the leak?

The hose you're referring to is part 49. This may have to be replaced from inside the tub...anyone confirm?

that tub to pump hose can be replaced externally but its a messy pain in the ass to get the new one in

so to do it right you should take the inner tub out. the red stuff is a sealant. you need some when installing the new hose otherwise its gonna leak

this washer/dryer by the way is built by westinghouse/frigidaire/electrolux

if one day you decide to replace it i suggest you get one built by whirpool/inglis

also i forgot to mention

when replacing that hose there will be a lip  then a gap then another lip. sealant in the gap then pop it in. then go on the outside and where the hose meets the outer tub put a bead of sealant all the way around just like they did when manufacturing.

i strongly suggest to let the sealant cure for 24 hours before water testing
