Large leak during wash cycle---Maytag - model LAT9520AAE top load washer

I have a Maytag-model LAT9520AAE, but I cannot locate this exact model on the FixYa site. The Maytag-model LAT3600A was the closest one to a match I could find. I have a large leak coming from somewhere around the drum of the washer during each washer cycle. I have not taken anything apart yet so I cannot tell exactly where the source of the leak is coming from. What can I do or where do I begin with troubleshooting this problem. Can you let me know in detail, what to remove/disassemble and how to find the source of the leak? Also, what does this sound like? From what I have read it sounds like I may have a faulty basket gasket or a faulty tub seal and bearing. If this is the case, are these parts expensive? This leak has happened on 2 other occasions in the last year, but now it leaks during every wash load cycle. Thanks for any help, Kevin B

    I removed front panel and found that the leak is coming from directly underneath the bottom of the tub in the middle where the shaft goes into bottom of tub during fill mode. There is a black rubber piece (gasket) that goes around shaft directly on bottom of tub. The leak is coming from around that black rubber piece.

    Hope picture helps. This is looking underneath on bottom of tub. Leak is coming from the middle of tub.

    What's next? Thanks,

    We decided to buy a new washing machine because I just had back surgery and could not get down on the floor to fix it. And a repairman wanted to charge almost as much as just buying a new one.

    Thanks for the help!

    Load the Torpedo Bays !! DIVE DIVE DIVE ..... this is what we had to say when our new Maytag ( 1 year old ) started to leak like it was hit by a
    depth charge. Shame on maytag and shame on the chinese for making such
    crap. My top loading washer is leaking water from the bottom, and I hand filled it and found out it's leaking right from the drum. So i guess I gotta play taps for this one. Never again Maytag , we will never forget.

Hey guys i guess this is not a uncommon problem. I have a commercial washer about 4 years old that get moderate service at a rental of mine and it is leaking from the tub as well. I hope to fix the problem because the new machines are very expensive.

Missing Maytag Neptune Dryer Door Screws Who can help Me?

Did you drop them inside the dryer, or just lose them. You can always use your model number with a parts search online and find replacement screws. A good place to start would be If you do a search on a particular site, and it shows something like we found x amount of close matches, then try another site until you find an exact match to the model number.

Hope that helps.

Need owners manual for panasonic KX-TG6412M Phone

HI there, I'm sorry, the closest I can come to finding your manual is on this page

I followed the instructions at the Panasonic Manuals page to locate these several links. This link may may not take you directly to the results I received.

The instructions at the Panasonic site said to enter the model number. If nothing was found, to enter only the first several letters or digits until I found something. I couldn't find the exact match so I backed off the numbers until I got the hit.

Good luck, I hope this helps.

As an alternative, you may wish to take a look ata - a mammoth data base of instructions and manuals

Thanks for using
