Maytag top load washer pavt244aww leaking into drain

The washer is less than 2 yrs. old.When you start the washer and it tries to fill up it leaks back through the drain.It won't let the washer fill up.It does not do it every time but when it does you can run through last spin cycle and it will be fine.Sometimes you have to do it twice.I've leveled the washer several times just to be sure it's level.The washer will sometimes do it after a wash when it goes to rinse cycle.It's a piece of 450$ crap.Any information would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you ,Chad

Water will not drain, will not do anything.

I would check the lid switch. That is most likely the problem.

Leaking washer drain pump

Yes, the drain pump is a common leak area.
2 clips, 2 hoses and it pulls off.
If it has leaked for a long time you will have to get aggressive to get it off.

Water Leak

Yes all you have to do is take off the front cover of the washer or the back cover, it it usually the front on top load washers. I believe your water pump may be cracked, but am not sure. What you need to do is remove the cover and start your washer and let it fill. Get a flashlight and pay close attention to where the water is leaking from. Then all you have to do is replace the part and your done. Any part dealing with water leaking will not be hard to change.

Washer leaking water on floor

Need to check drain pump and its hose connections. If its not from the drum seal then that's usually where the leaks occur.

Maytag Performa Washer

Vitto, the fill hose for the tub is located up on top of the tub. Its a push in and I have on occasion see them come out or loose. You are going to have to pop the top to get a look at what is going on. First there will be 4 screws on the dispensor assy. each corner. Remove them and lift the cover. Next will be the door. Remove the hinge screws not from the door, but from the body. On the other side will be 2 spacers, remove them . Now lift the door up and off the washer. The front panel will now pull out and come off the 2 clips on the bottom. You will be able to see the bottom. Now there will be two angle clips on each side holding the top down. Remove the screws, clips and the top will lift up. Now you will be able to place the door back on with out screwing it back on and close it. Start a cycle and now you will be able to observe the top hoses and bottom pump and hoses. Identify where the leak is and put this deal behind you. This is an easy gig, just take your time.
