Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer

1 Answer

My daughters maytag has water leaking from the bottom.

The maytag has water leaking from the bottom of the washer. Iam thinking the pump, a hose to the pump. Is there a way you can lift the shell up and expose everything at the bottom?

Check the easy stuff first, fill hoses tight?- drain hose cracked?
Failing those checks, cut a piece of cardboard slightly smaller than the size of your washer. Slip the cardboard under the washer and run a short load. Look carefully at the water mark on the cardboard. The mark on the cardboard the water leak will leave, will help you tell from which side or front to back the leak is common from. This will help point you in the correct direction to look for the trouble maker.

Leak


You have 3 areas to check. Drain hose, water pump and hot/cold water valves. Any of those 3 areas can be the cause. Most often leaks are caused by loose hoses, but neptunes use a plastic water pump that can clog and lose bearing water seals as well. Try the easy options first, then if those solutions don't point to the cause, remove the front cover and check the water pump for moisture.

Maytag atlantis washer got water leaking from


I have an Atlantis myself. There can be several problems. Did you check that the fill hoses in the back are not leaking? Are they tight? There are hoses inside the washer and a pump near the front. I replaced my pump last year and I,m getting ready to replace the thrust bearing assembly (spin issues). Does the washer leak with every load? make sure water is not splashing over the tub when filling. The front panel comes off if you can and leave off and watch to see where water is coming from.

Water leak from bottom


then you may be leaking from the water pump. maybe is worn out, only way to find it is to remove the cabinet an do a load test an see if it comes from there, if the hoses are fine then check the pump.

Washer leaking water on floor


Need to check drain pump and its hose connections. If its not from the drum seal then that's usually where the leaks occur.

Water leaks and spin cycle not working properly


Water leaking from the bottom usually indicates either a bad hose , bad hose connection to the pump or a leaking pump. Also sounds like the machine is not spinning out. Is there water left in the tub at the end of the cycle?
