SOURCE: Washer leaks from bottom as soon as it starts filling with water

There are 2 green clips between the top of the unit and the front panel. (you can use a flash light to find them easier). Push on the with a putty knife or small flat head screw driver while lifting on the top. Once the top is open, you will find 2 5/16 screws that hold the front panel on at the top on the right and left hand sides. Once these are removed, you can tilt the front panel forward and see where the water is leaking from.

SOURCE: Water leaking from bottom

Replace water pump. Common problem. Unscrew the control panel ,two screws on each end. Flip control panel over and unsnap gold brackets from base to the back. Lift up housing and disconnect lid switch, remove housing. The water pump is in the front lower that has two hoses , disconnect hoses and unsnap pump. My sister fixed hers in about 25 minutes.

SOURCE: Water leaks when filling

Use a putty knife at the top front corners to release the spring catches. Lift up the top. Examine the plastic thing that delivers the water to the tub, it may be cracked or out of place.

I have a Maytag A712 top load washer that filled with water and then stopped working. It will not agitate or anything. Also, how do I get the water to drain?


I drain water from stuck machine by filling an appropriately long piece of garden hose with water and holding thumbs on both ends. then i plunge one end deeply into the tub and have the other end below the first end when i let my thumbs loose. This machine has a water pump that will begin to lose a shiny steel retainer that digs into its housing and stops the belt.

Maytag A712 washer. Water pours out.


Maytags last great washer! This model was top of the line from 1985-1988

The leak can be coming from many different places. Pull the front cover off and we'll go from there. To remove the front cover, loosen and remove 2 phillps screws near the bottom of the front cover. Lift the cover at a 90 degree angle and the cover will pull off.

Washer didnt fill when turned on, but filled when holding "reset"


sounds like your water level switch is bad OR the small hose that goes from the waterlevel switch to the bottom of the tank has a hole in it.Try replacing this small hose first.you can go to an auto parts store and match it up.it's usually about 3' long and about 1/4" inside diameter and about 99cents a foot.

When washer finishes there is a dripping of water inside unit


What has happened is you have sand in your water valve from your water. This pluggs the water valve and also sticks it open so when the water valve shuts of there is still a small trickle of water coming through the washer. Replace the water and it will fix the problem (no way of cleaning the inside of the valve.) Replace water valve.

Maytag A212 clothes washer, leaking on fill up.


Possibly Injector / Vacuum break unit has gone bad (mine started spilling water lately, 20 years old). Get a 216201 to replace in your vacuum break, or better (if the machine is older) replace everything from the water valve with a kit: SUB 206680 (INJECTOR HOSE KIT).

Quite easy to get to. Just open front panel (remove two screws at bottom, lift bottom of panel away from machine and swing out. Spring clips at top should release easily. Then remove two bolts that hold top cover down and lift top. Water injector/vacuum break will be at the rear left of the machine. Costs about $40 for the kit. Or $5 for the small rubber part (but I am replacing everything that is pressurized on my machine since it is 20yrs old). -- Kevin

I have purchased a Maytag washer mtw6300tqo and it leaked from the first day it arrived. It does not leak DURING the cycles but leaks profusely a few hours later. I have had service techs look at it and...


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.
