    Cabrio Washer still leaking after seal and pump has been replaced

    Model Number: wtw5840bw0
    Brand: Whirlpool
    Age: 1-5 years

    I have Cabrio washer that has a pretty massive leak coming out of it. It takes about 2 or 3 towels to clean it up after each load. First thing I did was change seals as generally suggested. That didn't change anything. It almost seem like it made it worse actually. I then went and changed the pump and still nothing. I also lowered water pressure, as it was a common suggestion. I raised the washing machine to observe the leak and it looks like it is coming out of the sides of the transmission case. But not down the middle where I assume a leak would be if it was a seal. Is it possible that it is something else, or the new tub seal was bad? When I installed the tub seal, I did not take the drum out like the videos suggested and realized that when putting the transmission back on it makes the alignment off, or harder to get right. I took it apart this time without the tub and it seems better but still leaking. Is there anything I am missing or over looking? I didnt change the bearings or shaft.
