Question about Maytag Washing Machines
I am guessing my machine is about 20 years old. There are two clips that loosely fit into slots on either side of the top of the panel that are used to attach the panel to the top part of the washing machine frame. There does not appear to be a way to attach the clips without having access to inside of the front panel, which seems to me impossible. And once you screw in the panel at the bottom, there is no way to get at the clips either to attach them. What am I missing?
If these are the clips i'm thinking of set the panel in place then grab the bottom of panel and stand up so that the panel is parallel to the floor. Apply pressure as you lower the bottom back down. The clips should slip into the slots, but sometimes it takes a couple of tries. When it's good you will know then replace bottom screws.
If this doesn't seem right give me the model number (the one on the machine) and we'll figure out what is right.

Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim

I am a recently retired engineer of 20 years once you have ruled out anything getting inside the machine by accident etc, like something in pockets or greasy overalls, then its likely to be the drum bearings, has the machine started to get noisy on the spin the drum bearings are covered by a rubber seal, this seal gets damaged or worn and water leaks into the bearings themselves washing out the grease back into the drum where the washing is, you could also notice slight water marks on the floor underneath the machine on the floor, take the back off and look for water marks coming from the drum outer casing behind the pulley, these marks will be brown and will originate from a small drain hole, if any of the above change the bearings before any real damage is done, either to the clothes or the machine, as repair can be expensive? sorry, hope i have helped you as to where to look at least,

SOURCE: Maytag washer leak
the stem kit, boot seal is worn and leaking. if not repaired soon the bearings on the tub and on the brake package will start to rust and sound like a train going by. After 15 years of service its probably time to replace. Call your local service company and get an estimate on replacement of the seals and weigh that against the cost of replacement of machine. hope this helps. please come back and rate my answer.

What was the point of posting this on the site?
The drum has broken loose from the support plate at the rear
You need a new drum and a support plate plus probably an outer shell.
A complaint to the manufacturer may get you a deal on a replacement
