Remove the top cover of the machine. Check to see if the three tubes going into the dispenser drawer hv not come loose. Tighten well.

The brakes are probably stuck or the cam that releases them is damaged

SOURCE: not sure if manifold is leaking

Leaks water...check the pump first. The fill valve and hoses may be the next step. See how to take apart info. With the use of plastic drain hoses on many machines today, this has become a common leak trouble maker. The drain hose can rub the wall or a pipe and this will rub a hole in the drain hose.

SOURCE: I have front loader MFW9700 Maytag washer. Water

Check the door seal for tears and the drain boot from tub to drain boot for anything that might have put a hole in like a piece of metal from an under wire bra which front loads will spin so fast that the wires come out of the bras.

Water leak


If the main seal is leaking there will typically be a splash line around the inside of your washer cabinet. There is a special wrench available for removing the large nut that holds the inner basket in. This nut is aluminum and can be removed with a chissel if it is stuck. remove the inner basket and you will see cone shaped "NUT" that is covered in cork. There is a torx screw on the side of the cone shaped piece. once the screw is removed then the cone shaped nut can be removed using the special wrench and brute force.

Leaks water from the bottom


Your pump is probably leaking. It's mounted right at the front of the cabinet to the motor. It's held on by 2 clips and 2 clamps, very easy job. Part number for the pump is 3363394.
