Whirlpool washer leak

Sara asked 4 years ago
I have a 12 year old Whirlpool WTW582OSWO washer. it starts leaking water in the wash cycle a little before the rinse begins. I see that the water is traveling down the base frame assembly (I think that is the right part name) and then it puddles in the rear base frame and then starts dripping onto the floor. How do I fix this?I think I need to replace the tub gasket and buy a tub wrench, however I want to make sure. I have never worked on a washing machine before. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I\'m a little worried because it sounds hard to get the inner tub out.Thanks!Sara
