Maytag frontload washer door is leaking

Hi...i have a maytag frontload washer and there is a lot of water and suds leaking out the bottom and sides of the door. it is a circular clear door. inside there is gray stretchy lining around the door and this wire circle with a spring at the top came out of it. i know it must be the source of the problem and can probably manage to put it back in place myself...i just don't know where that place is! please help!

Yes you can do it. the door boot has come off the tub opening. first you will have to push on the door boot (gray rubber)on. There is a grove that slides into the metal opening in the washer. make sure the the door boot (gray rubber)lays flat against the outer opening. then with the spring at the bottom . start at the top put the wire in the rubber grove. until you get the the spring then pull down on the spring and tuck it into the grove.. I hope this helped [lease let me know if you get it... krazytech

The bellows is clogged that can e cleared by opening the door and checking the area just outside the tub at the bottom for debris. Clean this area and should drain normally into outer tub.

Hole in Maytag Neptune front load washer door and flaking or melting of door.

I've owned the same Neptune since 1999 and had this problem happen to me twice, the first time the inside molded plastic door melted through in a circular pattern and had to be replaced. The fact that it was circular indicates that something was rubbing during the high speed spin. That something was a stiff bottomed duffle bag that was rubbing on the plastic door during high speed spin. The washer was full of other clothes that didn't allow the duffle bag enough room in the washer tub, hence it pressed against the plastic door. The second time it happened I got a circular groove melted in, but not through, the plastic door... caused this time by a small child's back pack. I would make sure "rigid" items have enough room to "float" in the tub cavity by not putting in other clothing that over packs the washer.

I am getting a Sud code and then an F35 error on my Maytag frontload washing machine. I have unplugged reset and sometimes it works. Other times it doesn't. How can I fix it?

The F35 error code indicates an analog pressure sensor error. The analog pressure sensor is the component that detects water level in the washer tub. This error can usually be cleared but it will occur again if the main control board still detects a problem with the signal from the analog pressure sensor. This error code can be caused by a problem with the air pressure tube between the bottom of the washer tub and the analog pressure sensor. If you are able to unplug the washer and check this air pressure tube, you may be able to resolve this problem.

Water leaking from bottom, lots of suds.


Thanks for using FixYa. This may happen due one or more than one of these issues with your washer--
Probably there is something(coins, socks, dirt, debris, etc) stuck inside the drain filter of your washer. You'll need to check the drain filter. To access the drain filter. To check the drain pump follow these steps:

Unplug the washer to completely disconnect electrical power.Remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the first image below.

Also check your drain hose for a kink or clog. Check the washer house drain for a clog or restriction. Test the washer to see if it will drain properly.

This issue can also be due to clogged drain pump or drain filter, due to which the hose have developed leak. This will cause suds

Please rate the solution if you find it useful and helpful.
