Maytag heavy duty washing machine quiet series 100 leaks water from the top panel


Older maytags were equipped with an "air-gap" that can leak if the rubber sleeve part of it gets too stiff and cannot flex. It is along the left hand side of the machine fastened by a 5/16" screw between the machine cabinet and the upper panel... Maytag Injector Tube 12001677
If you remove the front panel and set the machine to fill, you should see water dripping off of the plastic frame the injector is sitting in.

If it is a newer maytag, check the fill spout for cracks or sediment build-up Maytag Water Supply Tube WP3360977

Maytag top load washer. the water does not shut off prior to the spin cycle and continues to overflow onto the floor. suggestions? thanks


It sounds like the pressure dome switch could be out or its in the hose for the dome it could be clogged or hose may be punctured.

To troubleshoot this you will have to access your washer.
Without model number it will be hard but im going to try. If you have an access panel at the bottom in front than take a flathead screwdriver inbetween the access panel and the front panel there are two tab metal that you have to push down to pry the access panel off. If you have a full front panel than at the bottom you need to remove two screws. Once you have the entire front panel off you need to lift up the top on each side there is a usually 3/8 nut holding the top to the sides. Lift up the top and you will see a hose going from a cylinder shape on the side of the outer tub near the bottom. follow the hose up to control counsel. Take hose off the top and check for kinks. Than blow into the hose from the top to make air bubbles in the tub. Its easier if there is some water in the tub. reconnect the hose to your pressure dome. Set top back down dont put front back on yet. try a cycle small load and see if it shuts off. Look for leaks along than hose. If you cant see any leaks and it does not stop. Spin the water out and take hose from bottom where tub is. Start another load on small wait for a few seconds than blow into the hose from bottom to activate the pressure dome. If the washer keeps filling with the pressure dome activated than its your pressure dome switch. If it stops like its suppose to replace pressure dome hose. Any further assistance please feel free to contact me.

The water leaks from the back side of the washer just under the cold water hose (at the top of the washer). Their is a round plastic part with some open space in the part. When the washer goes to rinse...


that is the drum vent. there is a mushroom valve inside to prevent water from coming out.when it fails, water comes out of vent. the valve either needs to be replaced or cleaned and reinserted. the top cover will need to be removed to do this. remove 2 back bottom screws and slide top towards rear to remove.

Leaking water from the bottom. Whirlepool Ultimate care


Most leaks on this model washer come form a worn or damaged drain pump, or drain hoses. You will need to remove the exterior case to access the washer interior to sufficiently inspect the washer components to be sure, however. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576648-washer_leak__top_loader

If the drain pump IS the problem, there is a follow-on link included that explains how to replace it.

Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare.

If you have any questions about this repair, or require additional assistance, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Water leaks out of bottom of washer


The screw in the washer tub, is not a factor in this. I'm not sure what brand of machine you have, but several machines have a fill hose that connects to the outer tub of the machine. Sometimes when a machine gets loaded heavily, during the spin cycle items in the machine can actually knock the fill hose right out of the tub. Then when the machine trys to fill the next time, all the water runs down the outside of the tub and leaks out of the bottom of the machine.
Repair is to open up the machine. You'll need to remove the top cover and that will give you access to the hose/tub connection. It may be as simple as reinserting the hose back into the drum or you may need to replace it if it got too damaged and won't stay in the hole correctly.
If you need specific how to's on opening up the machine, get back to us with the make and model info and we'll be happy to help you open that washer up!

I found water under the washer. I took the top


Your washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs:

During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time
During fill only If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:

  • Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.


  • The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.


  • Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.


During drain and spin only A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

All the time If the washer leaks all the time, check these:

  • Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.


  • Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.


  • Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it.


  • Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

Machine leaks when clothes are washed but not


this could be a simple issue or a severe issue.
if you feel adventurous disconnect unit, and remove Rear access panel. inspect the rear bearring at the pulley, check for oil leakage and water residue. if there is water around the bearring the unit requires an overhaul. if nothing you should be ok.
it could be a disconnected vent at the top of the machine.
remove front access panel and inspect all rubber boots and connections for water.
this is best done just after washer has leaked, inspect where water is comming from.
there are many things that could be causing this.
