Maytag LAT8650BAW washer leaks from top right panel when filling

Need help with older washer that leaks from the seam of the right panel & top part of the machine when filling. Can I fix it myself? Or is it something to costly to repair. Machine was bought in 1992.

    Thanks for the return. I took the front panel off, removed screws and lifted the top. Carefully, plugged the machine in and turned it on. The inlet valve was spraying water all over. I shut it off, unplugged the machine, removed the part, went to the appliance repair store, got the part, put it on, put the machine together, and the machine works great. For $20.00 I am glad I didn't call for appliance repair.

Maytag heavy duty washing machine quiet series 100 leaks water from the top panel


Older maytags were equipped with an "air-gap" that can leak if the rubber sleeve part of it gets too stiff and cannot flex. It is along the left hand side of the machine fastened by a 5/16" screw between the machine cabinet and the upper panel... Maytag Injector Tube 12001677
If you remove the front panel and set the machine to fill, you should see water dripping off of the plastic frame the injector is sitting in.

If it is a newer maytag, check the fill spout for cracks or sediment build-up Maytag Water Supply Tube WP3360977

LAT 7793 ABL model number. Washer leaking during fill...? a seal or gasket but not sure how to remove the spin bars to access it


On Your washer to locate a leak, remove the front panel first. Should be two clips at the bottom of front panel, use a putty knife to pry them down while pulling lower of front panel forward (older models used two screws right through front panel on left and right sides). After getting both lower clips loose, pull bottom of front panel forward to remove from top.
Set front panel aside and then use a 3/8" socket or nut-driver to remove two screws (one each) in the front right and left corners that secure the top to the side panels of the washer (inside in front corners going upwards). After screws are removed slide machine away from the wall about 8-10" and lift front of top up. Will pivot up like the hood on a car. This will allow you to examine machine for leaks.
Let me know when you come up with leak location if you need any more help!!

Leaking water


When your Maytag top load washing machine leaks water, you will need to check the following parts until you find where the leak is coming from.




The water valve: The first place you need to check is behind the washer. Check the two fill hoses and the water mixing valve.
Check for pinholes or cracks on the plastic body of water mixing valve.



Remove the front panel : The next thing you need to do, is to remove the front panel so you could see the tub and the hoses.
Set the washer on the regular cycle and turn it on so it could start filling.
Use a drop light and check all the hoses under the washer as the washer is filling.
Make sure to keep your hands away from any moving parts.


The pump : If the hoses are ok, check the pump for leaks. When the bearings in the pump wear out, that is when the pump will get noisy and that could cause your Maytag washing machine to leak water.


The stem & seal : Another place that the washer could leak water from, is the stem & seal on the holding tank.
When washer leaks water from the stem & seal, the water will leak down the center of the transmission.
When the stem & seal need to be replace, the tub bearing has to be replace at the same time. This is an expensive repair if you have to pay someone to do it. If you do it yourself it will cost you about $110.

Where do I start looking for a leak which occurs as the washer is filling (not at hose connections... seems to leak from the seam along the top of the front panel of the washer.


You may have backsplash from the tub fill sprayer itself.
Reach into the washer to the back area as it is filling and wiggle the point where the water comes out. If it's loose that may be the problem. You may also have a busted fill head or loose hose leading up to it.

Hi, There are two spring clips located in the gap between the top and front panel. They are the edges.
If the pump and hoses aare ok, fill the washer with water and look up toward the center of the tub abd transmission area. It migth have a seal going bad.

I hope this helps.

Washer leaks from bottom as soon as it starts filling with water


There are 2 green clips between the top of the unit and the front panel. (you can use a flash light to find them easier). Push on the with a putty knife or small flat head screw driver while lifting on the top. Once the top is open, you will find 2 5/16 screws that hold the front panel on at the top on the right and left hand sides. Once these are removed, you can tilt the front panel forward and see where the water is leaking from.
