Maytag mhwe300vw13 leaks on 'clean with affresh' cycle

This problem only occurs on the 'Clean with Affresh' Cycle, the leak seems to be coming from the vent(?) to the right of the inlet hoses when looking at the washer from the back. When on the Clean with Affresh Cycle the leak produces suds and water, which run down the back of the washer and onto the floor. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

SOURCE: Whirlpool Duet washer leaking during clean washer cycle

the highest water fill cycle for your waher is the clean cycle.it will fill up with 2x the normal amount of water in this cycle than any other.look for a cut or wrinkle in your door boot(grey rubber outer ring that seals between door and boot)if you find one,only fix would be to replace door boot.also clean inner door glass that comes in contact with door boot ring,any hard water build up or sediment(dog,cat or human hair)will break the seal and allow it to leak.good luck

SOURCE: My Maytag washer leaks badly around the bottom on the spin cycle

Sounds like you might need a new pump belt. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Unplug the washer and with the water out tilt it back so that you can see the bottom. You have a main drive belt that goes from the motor to the big pulley in the middle. There should be a second belt that goes from the motor to a smaller pulley which is the pump. Make sure that this pulley turns freely in both directions. One direction is agitate and the other is discharge. If it does and your belt is loose a new belt might do the trick.

If the pulley does not move freely take off the front panel, two philip screws about 3 inches up from the bottom of the front panel. Inspect the pump. One time I found a scouring pad in the pump!! If after inspection the pump still does not move freely you may need to purchase a new pump. Find the part number and check out prices on-line. The pump is relatively easy to replace. Good Luck

Tip the washer onto the front and you will be able to see through the bottom to look for leaks.

How do we get debris out of the bottom of the tub


Hi Ms. McCord. To clean the washer, we would recommend running a cycle on the hottest temperature possible, and adding a cup of bleach to the bleach compartment. You can also use Affresh tablets to clean the washer. Hereis a link to the Affresh tablets for the washer: http://bit.ly/Nd4OeX . I hope these suggestions prove helpful. Sincerely, Melanie, Maytag Social Media Representative.

Water left in tub at end of load smells bad you don"t see water but can hear at a turn of the tub by hand.


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Hope your filter is clean. Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.

You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use very hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Put the Affresh pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.

You can give me a ‘very helpful’ rating for the free help, can't you. Thanks.

Leaks water under unit and smells musty model# mah6500aww door boot was replaced and still looks fine doesnt allways leak just when it wants too also cloths smell like river water and sometimes still has...


Front loaders are known for building up mold and the smell.
It’s caused by using liquid detergent which is made from animal fat. Use powder. And use the minimum amount.
It’s caused by using fabric softener. Dilute it 50/50 with water.
It’s caused by the water remaining in the tub between washes. Leave the door open to allow it to dry. .
Pull the rubber door seal back and clean the mold off .
Affresh is recommended by some manufacturers. You run it through a wash cycle with it.

Clean washer reminder---what do i do when this indicator lights?


This is just a factory setting that reminds you to clean the washer to avoid that musty smell. You can buy tablets called Affresh or other similar cleaners for washing machines. They sell these items at Target, Walmart, Lowes and Home Depot. You can also substitue 1 Cup of Bleach in the washer. Then once you add whatever solution you have decided to clean it with you simply select the wash cycle on the machine called "Clean Washer with Affresh" Once you have done this the light should go out. And if you were getting the Sd code it should also be gone. You can also reset this by pushing the button next to the light that says Reset clean washer reminder. Hope this helps!! :)

My water has been smelling of sulfur. The clothes I was end up smelling of BO after being worn for only a short time. It isnt that the person is smell it is the clothing. Is there something to be added to...


I found that WasherFresh worked better then the Affresh.  What I really did not like is you cannot touch the Affresh tablets, WasherFresh is contained in a pouch and is not harmful to touch, because of the disolving pouch containing the chemicals.  Also after reading the package the chemicals are not harmful to the environment.
WasherFresh removed the odor causing buildup and I now use it monthly as a preventive maintenance.
