Mine leaked and it was the "Coin catcher" its rubber and it had a whole in it from a bra underwire. This is located at the front in the right handcorner, remove two screws at the base of the front and pull off panel. I bought a replacement part for $15, its not a hard fix.

Hi Milissa,
Getting to the back panel is fairly easy. You will see that you have the water inlet valves there and the electrical plug. All you need to do is take out the screws surrounding the edge of the machine. Also, first, you will want to remove the backing from the control panel where the timer is. Again just remove the screws. Once the screws are out the back should just come right off. Don't worry about breaking anything, you should be just fine. If you have any other questions let me know, also let me know if this was helpful. If you are having problems finding the leak let me know, I can help you with that too. Good luck and glad I could help.

Leaking washer


What leaks exactly?

What should we be guessing at ?

You changed one of the two hoses that feed
water to the washer?

Then turned off the water at the watts valve or
the hot or cold water--why?

No you have no leak until you turn the water back on?

Leaking maytag neptune washer


The pump and its various hoses are easily accessable through the back panel. The boot can collect coins which can block the pump. Squeeze the boot and empty it of all coins. Coins can ruin the impellers on the pump. A new pump costs $100 on line. The drain hose can be plugged by dimes and pennies. Good luck.

Cold water leaks into tub when machine is off


Try to identify roughly the area the leak is coming from. This will eleminate some of the following

Hose Connections
Check the rubber washers or replace if the hoses are leaking at the WATER INLET valve

Door Seal
This is a common place for leaks. Carefully check by partially pulling seal inside out and check for punctures, pens, pencils... Additionaly if the door is not closing properly it may need a door adjustment. This can easily be done by loosening the hinge bolts on the front panel, adjusting and retighten. The seal is also known to get lightly snagged by zippers or rub by heavy items when close are being removed. This tends to cause the seal to get damaged at the six o'clock position. This is sometimes hardly noticeable but if it is leaking from the bottom of the door replace door seal.

Water Inlet Valve
If the hose connections are good to the water inlet valve check that water is not leaking from the valve itself it is replace inlet water valve

Drain Pump
Check the drain pump housing and all hose connections. The drain pump is behind the lower panel, behind the back panel, and sometimes removal of the front panel. Hoses can be tightened. If hoses or pump housing is leaking replace pump .

Outer Drum
The outer drum is 2 halves bolted together some washers have a seal between others do not. If the washer is leaking between the seems disassembly of the washer will be necessary. The top panel, console, front panel, door seal, struts. 9696d86e-1b8b-4b2e-af2c-6f3a3ae921dc.jpg

When I hook of the water hoses to the back of washing machine and turn on the water, water spews out of hose


Hello Ifox5858,

I understand that when you hook up the hose to the back of your washing machine that the water comes out of the hose. The problem that you are having may be because of washers are missing out of the hose ends. You need to take the hoses off and look and see if you have rubber washers in the side that is leaking. The washers are standard water hose washers you can buy at any hardware store.

1. Place washer in hose
2. Install hose hand tight
3. Turn a quarter turn with wrench
4. Turn water on check for leaks if leaking slowly turn tighter to leak stops

This should fix your problem.

Thank you for choosing FIxya.com

Washer is leaking


sounds like you have a hose problem. are the hot and cold water hose connections tight? they may need new washers. if that is the problem turn off water valves,disconnect hoses and replace them with garden hose washers from any hardware store. re-tighten them snugly. just tight enough so they don't leak. if it only leaks while draining, replace the short hoses connected to the pump,located inside bottom of inside of washer.

Water leaks


If there is water leaking from under the washer, then you have a water leak from one of your water hoses. Check the back of the washer, where the water comes into the washer, to see if its leaking water or the hose is cracked. If its leaking water from the intake hose, then unscrew the hose and check the rubber washer, to see if it needs reolaced. Sometimes those rubber washers get cracked or broken. If that doesn't help, unplug your washer from the power cord and unscrew your intake water hoses and flip the washer gently on it's side and check the water hoses under the washer for leaks or cracks. Replace the hoses if cracked. Your local hardware store should have replacement hoses. This should solve your problem, but if not, then you need to call a washer repair person to look at it. I hope this helps.:)

Leaks water onto floor while in use


It sounds like a water hose is leaking or has a split in it. Check the water in-take hoses on the back of the washing macine, to see if its leaking or split. If they are leaking, unscrew the hose and check or replace the rubber washer, thats in the brass screw-in part. Next, unplug the washer power cord, unscrew the intake water hoses that are in the back and turn the washer on it's side and check the water hoses underneath the washer. They may be loose or split. Any hardware store should have these hoses in stock, like Lowes or Home Dept, or your local "Do it center".

Water inlet leaking


Take the hose off the valve and look inside it. There should be a flat rubber seal inside the hose coupling that seals to the valve. It sounds like you have lost this washer out of the end of the hose. You can pick them up at any hardware store. If they are over 5 years old, I suggest replacing the hoses completely anyway.
If this is not the problem, you may have cross threaded the hose on the valve. If this is the case you may have to change the valve.
Post back if you have any questions.
