    Thanks for the input....but I dont thinks we are on the same page. The hose you spoke of is ok. It hooks to about a 3/8 nipple and then drains back below. The hole I am refering to is about 3 or 4 inches straight over from that hose and about only 1/8 of inch. It appears to be drilled in the face of the large plastic housing. I have already removed the boot and that hose.

The Maytag's have always had problems with those front door boots leaking and not draining thus leaving a bad mildew smell. What the problem probably is is that the hose that connects to the weap hole is cracked and needs replacing. I would suggest just replacing the entire boot along with the hose. The boot is a pain to replace though, it might take a tech to get it done for you. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this information was helpful. Good luck.

The drain pump motor and water recirculation motor connected to a hard plastic "housing" is in that area of the machine. The hoses connected to those parts along with the motors and housing will need to be visually inspected. That involves removing the top and front of the machine to get down there and see if there is any obvious cracks or holes in those parts.

There is an open hole in the bottom of the water


This is simply a pressure bleed-off.
You can fill it with playdough...sillyputty (gum) etc. It should have had a wax-like plug from the factory.

yes most certainly, with leaks it is either the seals or cracks in hoses or rust holes in wash cylinder, but most likely the first too because of being a fairly new model

Water leak at front of washer


You should have a drain at the bottom of the rubber boot inside the washer. There is a possibility the drain hose clamp came loose or the boot has a hole in it. If you take the front of the washer cabinet off, you should be able to see where the water is coming from. Take the two screws out of either side of the door opening, pull on both sides of the front panel at the same time, tilt downward, and the panel should come off.

Fisher and Paykel Washer Leaking


For those with water on floor after wash, check my post on "eco smart won't drain, smells hot". It could be something clogging drainage area at very bottom of the tub. I couldn't see the sock that was stuck in my FP's drain when I looked from the top between the white outer tub and the wash tub--everything looked fine. Then I removed the black motor/white plastic housing piece--Tip back washer and you should see this black electric motor/white housing on bottom. see my post for how to remove and check for plugged drain. it's really pretty easy.

don't know about outer tub holes, but glad i don't have that problem.

i hate my fisher paykel washer/dryer. i can't wait to sell this house--i will leave them here and get a new front load Duette for my next house!
