Re: two year old maytag topload washer leaking from...
Possible the water is coming out of the wall standpipe. Plug off the wall first.
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

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.
Hi, I can't be sure without looking at the machine but I have had several of these type of machines the get cloths under the agitator "wash plate thing" in the bottom of the basket. This will eventually clog up the pump but stuff that hangs out in there can really get to smelling after a while. Try removing the wash plate and see if you see anything under there. In the future make sure you use a lingerie bag for all small items to prevent them from getting stuck under the wash plate.
If the connecting hoses is not a problem then it is probably be the pump present inside the machine.It helps in moving and draining the water.If it is not working then such problems might arise.It is best that you ask the plumber to replace it instead of you doing it yourself.
This machine has a direct drive pump, in all likelyhood the pump is leaking...unplug machine...pull it out...tip machine on its back so you can access the bottom, if it is the pump there should be water around where the pump connects to the motor, if it is the pump it is a simple process of releasing 2 clips and taking the inlet and outlet pipes off the pump..install new pump the way you took old one off. you can obtain the part from www.repairclinic.com If you would like to give me more details on your dryer i may be able to work out what is wrong with it.
Wow, this washer is very old. im sure the drainage hoses will need to be inspected or replaced asap. i would also check the pump housing for cracks as well. make sure the water inlet valve assembly ins in good condition as well.
Replace any hose or valve that is leaking or, damaged.
Many of the maytag toploaders have a rubber fill hose at the top of the outer drum. Sometimes if the machine is fully loaded (or overloaded), during the spin cycle if clothes are above the top of the drum they can actually knock the rubber flange of the hose out of the drum. Then when the machine fills with water, it will dump it down the outside of the tub and it will appear that the water is leaking from the top and side of the drum... Fix it by snapping the fill hose flange back into the hole in the top part of the drum... let me know how you do or need more help...
The mold will be growing in the upper parts of the agitator basket above the water line. Spray these areas with a bleach/water mixture using a spray bottle. Turn off the hot water valve to your washer. Disconnect the hose connected to this valve. Connect a leak free garden hose to the valve. Connect a garden sprayer to the other end of the garden hose. Turn the hot water valve back on. Check for leaks. Use the garden sprayer to rinse and remove the mold. Be careful to keep all of the water in the agitator basket. Turn off the hot water valve. Reconnect the hose from the washer to this valve. Turn the hot water valve back on. Check for leaks. Run a wash cycle with an empty load.
Check the easy stuff first, fill hoses tight?- drain hose cracked? Failing those checks, cut a piece of cardboard slightly smaller than the size of your washer. Slip the cardboard under the washer and run a short load. Look carefully at the water mark on the cardboard. The mark on the cardboard the water leak will leave, will help you tell from which side or front to back the leak is common from. This will help point you in the correct direction to look for the trouble maker.
