Question about Washing Machines
Hey, you've got a very cool Maytag...they were made so well 20 years back!
A few things to check:
You can access the insides very easily: just remove the two phillips screws on the bottom of the front panel of the machine... down by the toe kick area.. then tip the bottom of the panel forward until the top clips come free of the top cover of the machine.
There are two screws that hold the front corners of the top cover down... you can remove them with a nutdriver.
Then you can tip the top up and check everything.
First thing the fill hose:
There is a fill hose at the top of the drum. It tub top cover. The hose should be hooked into the hole in the tub. If it isn't, the water will pour out the hose, over the top of the drum and alot will end up running down the outside.
Also check the drain hose that connects the tub to the pump. It may be leaking.
Also, check the gasket/clamp that holds the top of the outer tub to the main outer tub.
Lastly check the drain hose connections in the machine.
These machines pump a good amount of water out during the drain portion of the cycle.
it's also a good idea to standby and watch during a spin/drain cycle to make sure the drain standpipe in your home isn't backing up when the machine drains..
Let me know how you fair... this is a great machine and worth the fixups.
