SOURCE: water is leaking from the freezer to thge floor.

I had a simular problem - it is EASY to fix once you know what it is. "They" don't tell you that you should clean out the drain once a year..."they" would rather you call a repair man. Empty out the freezer side and remove the bottom panel inside the freezer. If you don't know how to do this google your fridge type and model number and you should be able to find directions to do so. In the very bottom is a drain that can get clogged with ice. Using a hair dryer and hot/warm water melt and gently break away all the ice. Poor hot/warm water over it till completely thawed out. What is supposed to happen with this drain is moisture is supposed to go to a pan under the fridge and evaporate. When it is clogged the water spills out onto the floor. If I can do this anyone can. I was about 50 years old and a woman when I first did this.

SOURCE: Water frozen in the bottom of freezer on double door Maytag frig.

Shut the water off for one before it ruins all your floor. It probably has frozen and broken a line or the valve. You can go to this site and get a drawing on your fridge and parts if you need them.

SOURCE: Maytag refrigerator is leaking water

Your freezer has a drain that leads to the exterior drain pan beneath the unit. Occasionally this drain can become clogged resulting in standing water inside your freezer,due to line freeze over. This can, also, cause a run-off, as stated in your post. In the freezer, standing water will become ice and may result in defrost problems or inadequate coldness.

You will need to Clear the drain by forcing a solution of water and bleach or water and baking soda into the drain line with a basting syringe. If the solution will not flow through, slide a length of ¼ inch flexible tubing into the drain tube to push the clog through to the drain pan. Remove the tubing after clearing the clog. This will correct the issue.

The drain is located either on the floor of the refrigerator, beneath the vegetable crisper, or in the wall behind a drain funnel.



NOTE_It is important for the refrigerator to be level. If it is not level, doors may not open or close properly and may not seal tightly. Also, drainage from the defrost cycle might be impaired as might the ice making cycle. The appliance was engineered based on it being installed in a level position. While there may be some tolerance for out-of-level installation, the appliance will operate at its best when properly leveled.

Place a level on top of the refrigerator near the front. Do not put it on the door because the door may not be aligned with the refrigerator case. Check that the refrigerator is level from side to side. Next turn the level to check that it is level from front to back.

If it is not level, adjust one or more of the adjustable leveling feet until it is level. The feet are bolts that can be turned to raise or lower the refrigerator. If they cannot be adjusted with your fingers, use a crescent wrench or pliers.

If you have an ice-maker, it should also be checked for level after first leveling the refrigerator. An ice-maker that is out of level will spill water into the ice bin or into the freezer. It can be repositioned by loosening the mounting screws, adjusting it for level and then re-tightening the screws.

Water leaking out of bottom of maytag dishwasher


Maybe it is leaking from the water valve that is just ouside of your dishwasher, There is a flexible line attached to the water valve that goes into the dishwasher where it is also attached. Get a flashlight and look around, if you see the valve see if the connection is leaking. If it is, see if you can tighten it. You can also shut the water to the dishwasher off here. Don't forget to turn it back on after repairs.

My Maytag MZD2766GES is leaking water to the bottom of my freezer, which, when it get alot starts leaking all over the floor. where is this coming from?


Hello,


The water is from the melted frost of the defrost cycle. The drain at the bottom of the back wall of the freezer is blocked so instead of the water draining into the pan where it will evaperate,it's pooling on the freezer floor and freezing, in many case when the floor indent is full the water will leak onto the floor.By pulling the refrigerator out from the wall,there will be a tube behind the service panel on the right side when looking at it from the rear,that tube can be removed and cleared,then clear the nozzle it connects to inside the freezer.

I hope this helps you to stop the leak,
Gene

My Maytag Neptune MAH5500B has water leak problem. The water leaking out from the washer to the floor is clean and clear. So, I do not think it is drainage problem. I opened the back panel and did not...


Is the boot completely secure and not ripped or torn? The boot is the grey seal-like area that covers the drum. If it is torn at all, the water from whatever cycle, depending on when the water seeps through will end up on the floor.
