Remove the front bottom panel. Should be three 1/4" screws on bottom lip of panel. See if you can tell where leak originated. Chances are good you just need to pop the cap off the drain pump and clean it out. Here is a vid that explains the procedure.

SOURCE: I have front loader MFW9700 Maytag washer. Water

Check the door seal for tears and the drain boot from tub to drain boot for anything that might have put a hole in like a piece of metal from an under wire bra which front loads will spin so fast that the wires come out of the bras.

SOURCE: maytag atlantis washer got water leaking from

I have an Atlantis myself. There can be several problems. Did you check that the fill hoses in the back are not leaking? Are they tight? There are hoses inside the washer and a pump near the front. I replaced my pump last year and I,m getting ready to replace the thrust bearing assembly (spin issues). Does the washer leak with every load? make sure water is not splashing over the tub when filling. The front panel comes off if you can and leave off and watch to see where water is coming from.

I have a slow drip at the bottom of my front load washer door (Maytag Epic Z). It leaks through the bottom of the door and drips down the front of the washer onto the floor. Has done it since I bought it...


Yes the seal might need replacing. but in my experience a simple strand of hair caught on the seal will make it leak. So i suggest that you try thoroughly cleaning the seal fist. If its needs to replaced, its not that difficult, but its kind of tricky. Check if your machine is still under warranty by contacting the manufacturer. hopefully it is and they will change for you for free. If its not under warranty let me know and i'll try my best to give you detailed instructions on how to change it.

Water Leak from the Front Door of our Maytag Epic MFW9700S


The water leaking is most likely the gasket. It may have a little rip or something making it not seal. Im not sure about Maytag but on our GE we had to slide the the top back to remove some screws then (I believe to was for the control panel) Then we removed screws for the door and the front of the washer. When that was done you have to remove a round clamp that holds the gasket on. Then replace the gasket.

My suggestion is to have a appliance repair come and do it. Its a pain to do, at least it was for me.

hi there,

the FH error means it's either you have a drain problem if there is water in it or if if there is now water in it, make sure that both water inlets are turned all the way up. check to make sure that you don't have any water leaks anywhere visible.
