Large amount of water in wash tub under the wash basket in Whirlpool frontload duet


Even the new duets do have a panel. You need to lay on the floor to see 3 screws under the front. A torx bit will be needed to remove the screws. Before working on any appliance unplug it so you don't get zapped.

However, the problem is likely caused by the door being twisted. This can often be cured by twisting the door so the bottom is making a better seal against the gasket. This is assuming there is not tear or cut on the door bellows (gasket). Water tracks can normally be seen from the location of the leak. Liquid detergents change the surface tension of water an let it flow from smaller leaks so you may need to keep watch while the unit is being used.

Leaking water from a whirlpool AWM - 293 front loader


I too have this model machine. The leak in my case traced to the fill up hose that attaches to the drum. The seal at this point seems to be a weak point and requires either a replacement that will only last another couple of years or you could try what I did.

I removed the rubber hose from the drum. Dried and cleaned it thoroughly. placed a fair bit of sealant (silcone) on both parts and reassembled and let sit for a couple of days till it cured. This will need to be redone in about 3 years (that is my average- have owned it for 10years).

Washing cycle starts and takes hours even for short cycle.


Try checking for good water supply.
Pull out detergent tray and check for good water supply during filling.
if poor filling-
Try checking the hoses.
Turn taps off, disconnect from machine, place hose end in sink, turn tap on and check for good water flow.
if the hose has a red indicator in the side of the hose (end which is fitted to the tap) - Red indicator is a failed hose.(for models with Water Stop hose type "B")

Whirlpool awm 337 does not complete a wash cycle


There is either something stuck in the water pump (rogue sock) - front of machine - bottom right, open the flap, remove the plug and check (p.s. it will drop lots of water).

OR, underneath the machine - where the exit pipe from the drum, you will see a split ring holding on the rubber waste pipe. Behind that is a ping pong ball and rubber seal. Socks and the like do collect here.

It's happened about 6 times to me, have got used to fixing it.

Washer leaks on on the floor when using a large load setting.


The leaks in a washing machine could be coming from many different places in the washer.

The first place you need to check is behind the washer, check the two fill hoses and the water mixing valve.

The next thing to do is to remove the front panel, set the washer on the regular cycle and turn it on to 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.

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 top load washing machine water leaks.

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 leaks 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
