I would suggest cleaning out the coin or filter trap to see if debris has clogged the drain lines. This may or may not be specifically for your model, however these are generics instructions that I found.


To check for a restriction in the drain line you will need to follow the steps below:

1. Unplug the washer

2. Pull the washer out to tilt it back so you can

reach the screws below the front panel and

remove it. (You will need something to catch

the water once the hose is removed from

the bottom of washer)

3. Loosen the bolt with the sliver clamp on the

bottom of the washer. The water will begin to

come out while your loosening the clamp. (Do

not remove any GREEN clamps)

4. Once the water is out, you can stick your hand

inside the hose to clean it out.


If any proves to be ineffective contact a professional so they can properly and accurately diagnose the unit for repairs. Unit could possibly have a damaged/cracked tub, a leak in the drain lines, or the water valve.

There may be a hidden blockage. Try putting a garden hose into the outlet pipe, tightly gripping the joining point of the hoses and turning on the water briefly. This can sometimes clear things.
Check also that when the machine is set to the "Drain" position that you can hear the whirr of the drain pump motor. If you can, then the electrics are intact and the pump impelllor inside the pump may have come loose on its shaft or be jammed with a small foreign object. It would be necessary then to remove the pump and dismantle it, or just replace it with a new one.
As always I warn non-technical people to beware of attempting repairs. Not because they may not be mechanically apt...........it is more about them not being used to the Strict Self Safety Disciplines that experienced servicing personnel have in place that protect them from possible injury or even electrocution.
It is simply not worth risking life and limb by trying to avoid the cost of a professional service call after all a life is surely worth much more than that.
Importantly ALWAYS unplug any appliance from the power point before doing anything !!

Loads of slimey grey water in filter drawer and horrible smells


First of all, you need to confirm if the leak is from the filter or the pump.
You can replace the filter seperately to the pump.
If you replace the filter, and it still leaks, then you are going to have replace the pump.
I would suggest that that you check and clean if needed the outlet pipe where the water enters the outside waste pipe.
Make sure that you do a boil wash periodically, to ensure that the drum and other internal parts are clean.
Clean the door seal and dry after each wash, it helps to leave the door slightly open
Please leave any comments that may have as regards to my suggestions.
Thankyou.

Hi,

If it leaks under the water tank then you have to replace the gasket in the machine where the water tank inlet are.

If you have a leek inside the door, make sure the hole behind the brewing unit (in the chassis) are clean.

That you get a half cup of coffee one time and a full next time can be the electric board in the machine but can also be the flow meter.

Hope this can help you.

Best regards

Miele leak when switched on for wash, from filter unit front LHS bottom of machince


The leaks in a washing machine could be coming from many different places in the washer.

The first place you need to check is behind the washer, check the two fill hoses and the water mixing valve.

The next thing to do is to remove the front panel, set the washer on the regular cycle and turn it on to start filling.

Use a drop light and check all the hoses under the washer as the washer is filling. Make sure to keep your hands away from any moving parts.

If the hoses are ok, check the pump for leaks. When the bearings in the pump wear out, that is when the pump will get noisy and that could cause your Maytag top load washing machine water leaks.

Another place that the washer could leak water from, is the stem & seal on the holding tank. When washer leaks water from the stem & seal, the water leaks down the center of the transmission.

When the stem & seal need to be replace, the tub bearing has to be replace at the same time. This is an expensive repair if you have to pay someone to do it. If you do it yourself it will cost you about $110

Sounds like the dispenser is leaking somehow, there is no filter that would cause it to leak. Remove lid of washer by screws on back lip and inspect during fill to see where leak is.
