Question about Maytag MTW5600TQ Top Load Washer
We bought this washer new two months ago and ever since installed you can hear a small amount of water leakage through the discharge hose druing agitation. The higher the water level the more the leakage. It seems to be primarily during the wash cycle.
I read the manual and it says the minimum height of a standpipe drain is 39 inches and mine is 33 inches. The standpipe is in a wall unit so I don't have the option of extending the standpipe.
We had a Whirlpool washer for many years in the same location and ***** had this problem. We called the service center the retailer uses and they said that is normal for all the new washers, (hog wash)!
Have any ideas?
You might consider raising the washer about 6 inches to make this work. it's vital to the operation of the machine..
