My washer leaks!!!!!

So, when it comes to fixing things I am clueless, but I am eager to learn!! I have had my washer is storage for a year and I have just put it back into use, and at first it was making a horrible sound during the spin cycle, it didn't wobble so I didn't think it was off balance in any way. Then about a week later it stated leaking during the run, rince and spin cycle! I am not sure where to start, so ANY suggestions would sure be appreciated!!! THANKS!!!!!!!

Re: My washer leaks!!!!!

The center seals have failed and the squeeling was the first clue. It is a major tear down to change. One that i dread even as an appliance tech. depending on how badly you need the machine i would call a technician and ask for an estimate. sorry its not better news.

Washer leaks from bottom

you can open the front panel of washer and see if water is coming from the pump located to the right very close to the front of the machine. if the leak is coming from there is an easy fix. you may have a loose drain hose. If the leak is coming from the center of the drum, is a bad news, center chaft seal is bad, if this is the case, it's not worth it to deal with it.

I have a 30 year old top loading washer Maytag 7710. Leaking.

Sometimes the drum gets a hole in it from rust. That can be fixed with a waterproof sealant available at most hardware stores. That is also where you might find a "hose clamp"; if not, you can get one at any auto supply store.
Make sure you get the right size. The best clamps are tightened with a screw driver. Neither of those items are expensive.
One of the two things I suggest should take care of the problem.

Water leaking from bottom of washer

you need to fill it up a little then switch it off. tilt it backwards and if it hasnt got a base you should be able to see where the water is coming out of. check the bottom hose and around the element location.

Drainpipe leaking

Hi Mary, I'm going through similar experiences with my new Whirlpool which I learned to hate. I'm not an expert, however, I learned a thing or two about washers recently. Your problem could be related to one or two things: The drainpipe hose should not be placed more than 8" in length in the drainpipe as it creates a siphon effect. Also, the new washers are designed to spin fast, thus higher water pressure exiting into the drainpipe. If your drainpipe is clogged up for some reason and cannot handle the high water pressure, that may also create a problem. This can be solved by using some Draino in the drainpipe. Hope this helps.
