Hello Friend, Yes, I'd say your pump is leaking. Sometimes these pumps wear out a circular shaped hole in the front of pump housing but most of the time the rear seal on the pump goes bad and leaks from there. It's easy to replace the pump on your machine. First, remove the two screws that hold control panel in place and tilt back exposing the two metal clips that hold the cabinet in place. You will see some wires plugged into the cabinet, just unplug them. There are two clips, one on each side. Just pop these clips off and lift cabinet slightly from back and tilt forward. At this point you will be able to completely remove the cabinet. Once you have cabinet removed just set it aside. Now, you can easily remove the pump by snapping off the two spring clips. The pump will slide right off the motor shaft. Please rate my help. Happy to help, Tim.

Realistically, a 10-year old Maytag is nearing the end of its usual life. The pump may be leaking at random times during a wash cycle. If you put 50% of the cost of a new one into repairs, it is time to thing seriously about replacement of the machine.

Water leaking from tub seal into motor possibly? Try doing spin with dry newspaper under the machine and check for leaks. Could also possibly be water heater element loose or breaking down - leaks from drain hose or water pump body into windings? Dry news paper test should highlight where leaks are coming from.
!0 years old is ancient for a machine and you might consider replacement rather than a repair which will only be throwing good money after bad. Do you drive a 10 year old car? if you do, you expect repair bills to mount up! same with washer. I bet it doesn't owe you much!

Check for a defective and leaking pump. Remove the hoses from the pump and use a flashlight to look into the suction port. Make sure nothing is clogging the pump (like the occasional stray sock) and check the pump impeller. Make sure there are no broken/missing blades and that the impeller spins freely. If any blades are broken/missing or if you can't get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective. Hopefully it is just something clogging the pump or the impeller is jammed. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

The washing machine leaked all over the floor. Should I get it fixed? It is 10 years old.

It may be a hose or a pump leak. If you are a do it yourselfer, repair it. If you would have to hire it repaired, it depends on the repair. Hose about $17.00. Pump About $50.00. Labor estimate for either about $95.00 to $120.00. New machine $450.00 to $1000.00. Some repair shops may give you an estimate over the phone.

Turns on but only fills to 10 psi and then does not fill more

There is a one way checkvalve installed on the tank that prevents air from returning to the pump. Follow the discharge hose from the pump to the tank. You will see a brass valve that has a 1/4 inch hose attached that leads to the pressure switch where you will find the unloader valve. Check if the unloader valve is leaking and continues to leak when you turn off the pump. If the valve at the pressure switch is leaking ~ then the check valve at the tank is the source of the leak and needs to be cleaned to replaced. Some low volume compressors will never fill if the tank check valve is bad. Check this first and email me for more information. Good Luck

Kenmore 80 - water leak not from hoses - could it be the pump?

Hi Gleen you probably need to remove the rear cover to expose the in side of machine.
Note if you could post a model number I could tell you for sure what would be the best way get to the pump.

Kenmore 80 series leaking

well you can try filling the outer tub separately.with what you mentioned, the problem is certainly not with the drain hose or the pump. fill the tub separately with some water and if the leak is seen then the problem is certainly with the outer tub corrosion or crack on it.

is the pump gray or white? if it is gray then replace it.look where the pump mounts to the ,otor and see if there is a black line coming from the middle.this is probably where your leak is.
