Maytag top load washer leak

I have a maytag top load washer, about 15 years old. Once the washer fills, water still drips from the fill slot through all cycles, including the spin cycle. Even when the washer is turned off, it still drips.

I think the problem is leakage at the FILL SLOT, not at the tub/agitator shaft seal.
This leak is probably due to the selonide controled water valve assembly. The valve is eithe damaged, dirty, or more likely needs replaceing.

Underneath the agitator is a graphite seal ring and nut that seals the inner tub and the outer tub. a suitable spanner wrench or a 6 inch channel lock plier will remove this locknut. replace the seal.

Maytag heavy duty washing machine quiet series 100 leaks water from the top panel


Older maytags were equipped with an "air-gap" that can leak if the rubber sleeve part of it gets too stiff and cannot flex. It is along the left hand side of the machine fastened by a 5/16" screw between the machine cabinet and the upper panel... Maytag Injector Tube 12001677
If you remove the front panel and set the machine to fill, you should see water dripping off of the plastic frame the injector is sitting in.

If it is a newer maytag, check the fill spout for cracks or sediment build-up Maytag Water Supply Tube WP3360977

I have a Maytag A612 I purchased in 1986. I just found a water leak when it fills on the "warm wash' water setting. It does not leak on either the "hot" or "cold" wash water...


Your about right....and getting parts for a 1986 Maytag may be almost impossible. Maytag was sold many years ago and old parts were dumped.

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 Maytag washer, once it is finished washing and spinning and stops running, water keeps dripping into the washer. Why? In a day or so it will almost fill up with water.


First turn the water off at the wall. You have a bad mixing valve.

Write down your model number and then do a google search for Maytag parts. I like Partselect.com and Repairclinic.com both are reputable sites.

Maytag Washer (approx. 7 years old) has slow stream when filling


Follow the two inlet hoses from the back of your machine. They should each end at a valve (one for hot and one for cold). Make sure that these valves are all the way counter-clockwise and that the hoses are not kinked or pinched.
