Washer leaking from bottom how do i get cover off front to have access to front of machine?


There is no front panel to be removed on this machine. Where the top meets the cabinet there are two clips that hold the top down. Take a putty knife and insert it between the top and cabinet on the left and right side. Push in on the clips when you find them and lift the top. You can now start the washer and see where the leak is coming from. Don't hold the lid up to high or the water will shoot straight out at you while it is filling. (I had this happen to me). You can see all along the sides of the machine. Once you do see a leak you can slide the machine out from the wall and tip it back and have full access to the bottom. Make sure it is tipped back far enough that it doesn't fall on you. I hope this helps.

My washer is leaking from underneath the machine. What is the cause?


It could be a few things, a hosehas a hole in it, the water pump is leaking , or the cenbter seal on the transmission is leaking. Best way to check is to put some water in it, have someone help you lean it back and look underneath to locate the leak. If the water is leaking only in the agitate cycle and not as its filling then its your center seal.

First ck to see if your water pump is leaking. It normally leaks when the machine is running not just filling. Also look at all the attaching rubber hoses under the machine and see if water is leaking down the back right side of the machine and then running around the frame to the front long shot but possible.

Leaking water


When your Maytag top load washing machine leaks water, you will need to check the following parts until you find where the leak is coming from.




The water valve: The first place you need to check is behind the washer. Check the two fill hoses and the water mixing valve.
Check for pinholes or cracks on the plastic body of water mixing valve.



Remove the front panel : The next thing you need to do, is to remove the front panel so you could see the tub and the hoses.
Set the washer on the regular cycle and turn it on so it could start filling.
Use a drop light and check all the hoses under the washer as the washer is filling.
Make sure to keep your hands away from any moving parts.


The pump : If the hoses are ok, check the pump for leaks. When the bearings in the pump wear out, that is when the pump will get noisy and that could cause your Maytag washing machine to leak water.


The stem & seal : Another place that the washer could leak water from, is the stem & seal on the holding tank.
When washer leaks water from the stem & seal, the water will leak down the center of the transmission.
When the stem & seal need to be replace, the tub bearing has to be replace at the same time. This is an expensive repair if you have to pay someone to do it. If you do it yourself it will cost you about $110.

Water leaking when being filled .


leaking while the washers off is a normal problem.check for corrosion or crack on the outer tub.
check the water supply connections and the drain hose.also make a check for the tube seal and tube bearing.these are the only possibilities for a water leak.

Is there water inside the tub after it starts leaking? If so the valve that lets the water into the machine could have a bad seal and overfilling the machine with water when it is not being used. Or one of your water hose seals could be leaking. Make sure the hoses are tight. Beyond that there is nothing to cause a profuse amount of water when the machine is not being used.
