Maytag washer model mavt446aww, less than 2yrs old, leaks water

It just started to leak water, it's not even 2 years old. I assume it's a hose problem but not sure. Is this commom for these, and is it an easy repair with low cost, or will I need to get a repair man?

Further investigation is needed.
It can be a loose hose clamp - failed drum seal etc.

This fill hose is leaking on my maytag a612 washing machine. It is leaking at the little plastic thing that the hose runs through. Is it possible just to bypass whatever that is?


Hi FordMan! The little thing is the water inlet valve and it is not possible to bypass it, since that is what allows the water to flow into the washer and is what also shuts the water off, once the tub is at the level needed or selected.

However, you might discover that if you shut off the main water supply valves at the house connection point, you can just tighten the hose connection at the water valve, as it might just be a little bit loose.

If that's not the problem, remove both the hot and cold water supply hoses from the washer side and replace the rubber washers in the hose ends.

And if that doesn't resolve the leaking problem, you'll have to replace the water inlet valve to stop the leak. But try the first 2 steps before you move onto replacing the valve.

If you discover you need a new valve, you can go to www.searspartsdirect.ocm and with the full model number of your washer, locate the replacement valve and see a line drawing of your washer and get the price for the valve. This is an easy repair for most DIYr's to tackle and you should be able to do it, once you've got the parts, in about 20-30 minutes with just a couple of common hand tools. Just remember to unplug the washer before attempting any repair and turn off the water supply connection at the wall near the washer.

I will suggest, as the manufacturers all do these days, that if your machine is over 8-10 years old, you also replace both the Hot and Cold water supply hoses, as hoses tend to start to break down after 8 years and could rupture causing extensive water damage, etc.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Washing machine is leaking from bottom of machine


Wow, this washer is very old. im sure the drainage hoses will need to be inspected or replaced asap. i would also check the pump housing for cracks as well. make sure the water inlet valve assembly ins in good condition as well. Replace any hose or valve that is leaking or, damaged.

Washer leaking when filling up tub


Unlikely to be pump, sounds more like hose leaking, or drum seal.
Depending upon severity of leak, place a sheet of newspaper under front of m/c, pushing it as far back as you can. switch m/c on for a few secs, then switch off, remove paper and you should be able to judge where leak is.
Tilt m/c back and have a look underneath.
At 12 years old, if it looks major, I think I would replace m/c.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

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.

Maytag washer


Depending on how old it is, you should just be able to repair the unit if you have the will-to-do.  The smell more than likely is coming from a possible mildew growth inside the machine.  Sometimes you can remove the inner basket and clean the inner and outer baskets.  If you can find the leak (which on older models shouldn't be to hard to do), you should be able to correct pretty easy.  Be sure to check hose coming off water mixing valve and the smaller tube for the water level switch (will run off of outer basket up to console).  Be sure that hose doesnt come off because washer will keep on filling (and it will to).  If you get leak stopped, try getting some strong bleach, and washing a "no-load" a couple of times at high level in hot water.  This may get rid of the problem.   Jim
