The first thing that I would check, is the hot & cold water hoses, that connect in the back of the washer, to see if they are tight. If they are tight and still leaking from there, then the rubber washer, inside the brass fitting part needs replaced. If that doesn't help, then disconnect the power, and water hoses, then turn the washer over and check the water hose underneath, to see if its leaking. One of these hoses has to be the problem.

My washer wont do anything!


It could be the lid switch, i had similar problem, changed the switch, helped for a day, changed it again, same...So then i did a diagnostic test. it said that it was the main control board,changed it ($135), didn't help. I noticed that was a little bit of water on the floor under the shifter, changed that, worked for a while, then i noticed that it was wet again. I traced it to worn bearings that the tub spins on which wore the tub seal and made water leak on the shifter electrical connection, Changed the bearing which is the whole transmission and comes with new tub seals. It stopped the leak and has been working for more than a year.

Maytag MHWE400WW01 fills with a small amount of water when not in use


Selenoid valve leaking. Could be a rubber washer or complete valve or very low water pressure.

After a load is finished and drained properly, several hours later the washing machine has filled with water again. I then have to run a drain cycle to use it.


This sounds like the valves that let the water in are leaking, just a little bit. Over several hours, they leak enough to be noticed.

You can have those valves replaced, or you could shut off the water going into the washer with the valves in your water supply. (the one's that are usually right next to where your hoses connect)

Sounds like either the gasket on the inlet is leaking or not tight or the solenoid housing is cracked causing the leak. When its in use the pressure from the line is realased when the solenoid is opened letting water in. When not in use the solenoid stays closed allowing pressure from the line to build causing the gasket to leak. Check your gaskets, and solenoid housing for leaks and then check to make sure your water pressure is not set too high.

Leak where water enters drum


I would say you havda inlet valve. With the washer not in use and empty after about 2-4 hours do you notice that you have a semi full tub? If it is filling with water by itself you have a bad inlet valve all you have to do is take the top panel off you will see the valve it's what is attached to the fill hoses. When you have dirty lines the dirt goes through the solinoids and keeps them open causeing the water to come in when not in use.

Dribbling water when trying to fill up


Turn off faucets for hoses to washer. disconnect hoses at washer, noting which one went where first.. Hold end of hose in washer tub and turn on faucet. If it comes out strong, check the filter screens in washer inlet valve where hoses connected. DO-NOT remove these screens. If you do it can cause flooding by allowing grit to hold open valve. Clean screens without removing them by scraping with small screwdriver and flushing with water.
