Water leaks from weap hole in bottom of the plastic housing

Why would water leak from the "weap hole" at the bottom of the plastic housing in the front of my mah5500bww front load maytag neptune? It leaks a lot most all of the fill........ not a little.

    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.

Water coming from pulley system


Hi, if you have water from the pulley area, it may be coolant leaking from the vent hole, in the water pump. This would leak more when cold, than hot. The repair, would be a water pump replacement. This is a fairly easy job, the only possible obstacle, is the fan needs a special holding tool, to dissasemble it. Otherwise, removing the upper radiator shroud, belt, and hoses, there are 4 bolts holding the pump to the engine.It is imparative that the engine block is clean , (to the metal), before the new pump goes on, then a mix of 50/50 dexcool, and distilled water, to refill the cooling system. Good luck...Coop

Water pump is leaking


If its leaking from a mount bolt then your gasket went bad.....get a new gasket and some permatex

However if it looks like it is leaking from the pully its self then it is leaking from the weap hole, when this happens it is because the seal arround the berrings has gone bad. You have to get a new water pump

Leaking coolant from around water pump just put in new radiator on monday and no leaks from it or hoses, think is weap hole in bottom of water pump.


If it's the weap hole the pump is going bad. That hole is designed to leak as a "warning" that the pump is going to fail.

Leaking coolant from crank seal on 1991 toyota sr5 4x4 pick up. i figure the water pump has a seal gone behind timing cover and no other leaks it over heated today at highway speed .


THE WATER PUMP HAS A WEAP HOLE ON THE BOTTOM OF THE HOUSING THAT INDICATES PUMP FAILURE BY LEAKING WHEN THE PUMP NEEDS REPLACING. IT IS TIME TO REPLACE THE WATER PUMP. IN ADDITION YOU MAY WANT TO REPLACE THE TIMING BELT AS WELL WHEN YOU REMOVE THE TIMING COVER AND CRANKSHAFT PULLEY. I HOPE THIS CLARIFIES ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR ANY COMMENTS YOU WISH TO SHARE. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. GOOD LUCK

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.
