Seems I have a while before any parts stores will be open, so I thought I'd ask on here...
We have a 5-yr-old Whirlpool Duet, front-loading washer. A couple of weeks ago, as part of spring cleaning, we washed the bath mats and a couple of them started falling apart, so today I thought I'd DIY my annual/semi-annual routine of cleaning out the filter trap. Went about as usual (or so I thought). I put the cap back in and started to load some laundry.
What I didn't notice in time was that the cap to the filter developed a stress fracture, so when the laundry started, water started running out the bottom through the crack in the cap.
After cleaning up all the water, I started looking for replacement parts... Lowes doesn't carry them, and all the Sears parts depts were closed on Sunday... I got the pdfs of the manuals and parts manuals. To my surprise the part number going with the filter cap turned out to be for the whole drain pump assembly. I called the Sears part line and the woman on there was puzzled to find the same thing. She also told me nobody would be open today.
I did some searches on-line, and the price for the whole assembly was between $75-150, which seems a bit steep for replacing a plastic cap.
So, since I've got some time, anyone have any ideas where I might get just the replacement cap instead of the whole freaking pump assembly?
