Most likely. the tub seal is bad. mine did the same thing. had to replace the seal. part is called a triple lip seal. not hard but not a walk in the park either.

WATER LEAKING FROM TOP WHEN START SPINNING,MY WASHER IS MAV 7600AWW,I CHANGED THE SEAL AND STIL LEAKING


Does this happen on any water level setting, or just on full load? If the machine is overfilling, the centrifugal force at the start of the spin cycle will throw the water up the sides high enough to overflow the top of the tub.

If the machine is overfilling just a little as I suggest, then the water level switch may be out of calibration or the water level hose may be partially clogged at the tub end. A quick fix in the latter case would be to disconnect the hose from the level switch and blow compressed air through it - it's a lot easier to get into the control panel than the side of the tub. A leaky hose would have a similar effect.

It sounds like the Outer Bearings are going due to a leaky Tub Seal. Bothe can be repaired and have done on this site. This site has no way to reference past post to machine issues.

I have helped owners of theFAV6800A and FAV9800A machines here but I prefer a tru DIY site.

I no longer post on this site no way to post a Sticky for machine issues.

If you want to DIY the repair Google this phrase ""Sticky: Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW""" Read the post Part 1; DC or UC unbalance error codes in Spin Cycle what is causing this issue? Part 2 for the fix action.

Post your issue in the repair forum not in the Sticky. Please include your Model Number i.e. FAV6800A or FAV9800A and I will help you.

Loud and leaky


Tub bearing replacement on ANY Amana (Maytag) can be difficult. Even for experienced technicians, it can take 1 to 2 hours as long as there are no surprises (corrosion, stubborn bolt etc). Also, all Maytag washers require specialized tools for removing certain components of the machine.

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 top load washer leak


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.
