Question about Maytag HAV3460AWW Top Load Washer
I have a maytag model # MAV408DAWN. Water spills out from the pipe in the wall when the water drains from the machine into the pipe in the wall. I have had several plumbers and the maytag repair people out, but have not found a solution. The plumbers say the pipe is the right size (2 inches in diameter) and there is no blockage, and that the problem lies with the machine -- the machine empties too quickly and overwhelms the pipe. Of course, the maytag people say it is not the machine, but that it is the plumbing. This has been going on for two years and is driving me CRAZY, not to mention ruiuning our wall and floor in the laundry room. Please help!
If the flooding is from hose and joint in the drain system, or from the drain pump, then it is the machine.
If instead, as it looks, it is a return from the drain pipes on the wall, then the problem concerns your house drain line, in that case it is a plumber job.
Ensure that the leak is not from inside the machine, if it is not anything from the machine, then call the plumber.
