Question about Washing Machines
It's come away from the housing and is misshapen, so I'm not sure if it will horribly fail at some point or not. Is it feasible to get this fixed, or fix it myself? Or is it more likely that a new washer would be more cost effective?

SOURCE: Maytag washer leak
the stem kit, boot seal is worn and leaking. if not repaired soon the bearings on the tub and on the brake package will start to rust and sound like a train going by. After 15 years of service its probably time to replace. Call your local service company and get an estimate on replacement of the seals and weigh that against the cost of replacement of machine. hope this helps. please come back and rate my answer.

I have read that if the pump is not draining the tub completely, there is an interlock that prevents the high speed spin from engagin. I have had debris caught in my pump several times (kids!!) with similar issues. There is a trap on the line leading from the tub to the pump which is "supposed" to capture debris, but it doesn't work all that well. Check your pump.....

Although I had just cleaned the filter about 5 weeks ago, my wife had recently washed a pillow that came apart in the wash. I did not know this but noticed the clothes dripping wet after the high speed cycle. I was thinking it was the drain problem like I read in the post from bluefuzz. I pulled the filter and it was LOADED full. Before calling the repairman, CHECK YOUR FILTER! You won't need to disconnect any hoses.

I'm sure this is probably too late, but hopefully it will help some else. I just had the same problem. First, unplug the power. Then take the lower front panel off and grabbed a bucket. Place the bucket under the large "plug" on your right. This is the drain. Slowly unscrew the drain plug, Hold your nose as it will probably smell. Allow the water and such to drain into the bucket. When you see the blob of wet lint drop into the bucket you will know why the machine refused to work. Make sure you clean the drain plug and screw it back in tightly. Put the lower panel back on and reconnect the power. I hope this resolves your issue.

There can be two possibilities,one if it has a belt, it is either stretched or slipping or if it doesnt have a belt then there is a clutch like device between the motor and the basket, which is either broke or cracked.
Or follow this easy steps...
Unplug the washer and turn off the water faucets.
Disconnect the water hoses and the drain hose and pull the washer away from the wall, leaving yourself enough room to work behind the appliance.
Lay an old towel down to kneel on and soak up any water that leaks from the hoses.
Remove the rear access panel.
Locate the motor. The rubber drive belt goes around a pulley wheel attached to the motor.
Press on the belt. If it gives more than ¾ inch or so, it needs to be tightened.
Loosen the mounting nut for the motor and push the entire motor to increase the tension on the belt.
Hold the motor in place and tighten the mounting nut.
Make sure you don't tighten the belt too much or it will break. You should be able to press on it and feel it give just slightly.
Replace the drive belt if it shows signs of wear.

Testimonial: "Thanks! I guess you're right. The belt seems to be too loose and shows signs of wearing. Already ordered new one. Thanks again!"
