Our Splendide washer has developed a leak. Has anyone had experience removing the washer from the cabinet? It seems to be bolted down. We have a 2001 39' National RV Tradewinds. Thanks for any help.

Larry, do the washer have a plastic trim at the bottom front? If so, put a flat blade screwdriver in the top edge and pry the trim down to remove. You may find screws behind it holding down the front of the washer to the floor.
If you do not have this trim then the only other way that would not be visible would be from the bottom up.
BTW you can get a pump kit to repair the leak from Westland Sales; Splendide distributor.
Good luck and keep us posted.

Thanks Joe and Mike.
Joe, Our washer is in the bottom closet across from the shower in the walk-thru bathroom.

Mike, My washer doesn't have the plastic panel at the bottom, but you always come to my rescue and I really appreciate your input for everyone.

I pulled all the shelving out of the top closet and removed the bottom shelf above washer so I could see down behind it. Nothing but dry dust. I went outside and pulled off the black plastic panel in the false bay underneath the washer so I could see the fresh water and black and grey tanks. Nothing but dry dust again. So I assume the washer is not leaking.

I know I'm getting moisture from somwhere because the plywood under the fresh water tank is disintegrating. Anyway, it must be coming from the other side by the faucet connections; or from the water tank, but don't see how it could be that. Anyway, I'll start looking for another leak somewhere.

Thanks again,
Larry

Hi Larry,
Does the plywood erver get dried out? If so, the only way I know to determine the cause is to operate the coach with water restricted to one part of the coach. I know this will be a real PIA. An example might be to use the coach and not use the W/D. This will eliminate the W/D and the drain side (but not the pressure side) of the W/D. Next might be to drain the fresh water tank and water heater and use bottled water, CG showers, etc. for a while. This is in case it rains. Next might be to fill the water tank but not put any pressure on the system. Continue to use the CG restrooms, etc. Lastly fill the water tank and pressurize the water lines. Unfortuantely I think you need dry plywood before starting any testing.

Also, monitor the weather and see if the plywood gets wet after it rains.

FWIW, our Splendide developed a leak and investigation found a crack in a plastic water hose "L" feed line. I replaced both with household lines, which appear to be much more durable(no plastic).

Our Slendide died last year and I removed it. Ours was not bolted down. It is heavy and just sat in the compartment.
I didn't even have to remove the doors, it just slid out. I did have to remove some trim from the front of the cabinet.
Hope this helps
