Maytag PAV2300AWW Washer leaks while filling

We just bought a used Maytag washer and my husband hooked it up tonight. When we did a test run (just filling it with water empty), the water immediately went out of the tub and onto the floor. Does anyone have any idea what could be the problem here? My husband did use the water hoses from our old washer instead of the ones that were on the this one originally, but that was the only thing we changed. Thanks in advance for your help!

    We used the ones from the old machine because they were almost new (we had changed them out). My husband found the problem yesterday after he opened up the machine. (We found excellent directions on how to do this and what to look for from this website http://www.applianceaid.com/). The hose that goes from the pump to the basket had somehow fell off and he had to reattach it. The machine is running well now and hopefully for many years to come. Thanks for your help and hope this helps others as well. :)

Hello
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

Why did you change the hoses with old ones?
If you are going to change them use new ones!

Sounds like the drain hose connection to the washer is not tight or not secured, or not fitting th connection because it is from a different washing machine.
Or there is a hole in the inner tub and leaking out on the floor.

Do you know the ones that sold it to you?

If it was the bearing it should be leaking water out the bottom! It is more than likely the water pump. The seal in the pump drops down and then makes noise. The pump should be in rear. tilt machine back remove belt then try turning the pump by hand if tight replace.

first check the house breaker and make sure you still have power. If it does then I would unplug the machine and lean it back against the wall to look at the motor wiring harness underneath to see if it came loose or is wet.

The problem is simple and easy to fix. Your washer has a tubing which runs from the base of the tub to the water pressure switch. It might have vibrated loose from the switch, or their can be some sediment in the tub. Blow out the tubing and reattach it securely to the switch and pump out the water in the tub. Then try it again. I wrote an article about this:

In yor machine control panel you have A part called a pressure switch or water level switch. that controls the water level and tells the timer to start aggitating .If the part is bad the machine will over fill and keep running the water!!

Does not spin


Possible your outlet filter is blocked. This requires cleaning depending on your usage. Clean this out and refit. Good luck. Plug off the wall first.
