Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Have a Maytag (SAV365ZA) top load washer. Has a leak in the bottom of the unit. It does not leak in small loads but, anything bigger and it is a steady stream. Could this be a seal gone bad?

Hi,

Yes you are correct there is a seal which is leaking. Open the washer door and at the top of the inside seal there is a plastic nipple. Normally the water comes out of this area. Make sure that nipple hasn't worked itself loose and pushed back from the seal. If it is pull it back through the hole and line it up with the impression in the seal. We had the same problem and this fixed it.
Let us know if you want to know something else accept the suggestion.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

I have lse7806ace (stackable) and problem with water leak. I live in condo and this washer/dryer stackable in small closet. I can't reach locking tabs. This stackable is also on the pan (bottom). 'BTW,...


Remove the 2 screws which hold the lower front washer panel , lift out from the bottom and remove the panel.You can now run the machine and use a flashlight to see where the leak maybe. Usually the top tub seal under the plastic tub cover will leak. The other possibility is the main tub bearing and seal on the main tub where the transmission goes up through tub. Hope this helps.

Maytag Washer leaking from the bottom


It will be the normal trial and error. Remove the top lld and the back panel.statt the wash again and start looking for anything obvious. Start from the soap box, then carefully look down the sides and then if nothing seen, switch machine off and tilt machine untill you can see the underneath. Look for any areas where there is water .(when visible start looking a little higher untill you find the spot.) Most of the underneath areas are likely rust spots that have broken through.. On occation the pipes are perferrated and have a small leak. All observation.

My Maytag top loader leaks at the bottom of the bucket. I took off the front cover and should see that the wahser at the top of the shaft is leaking. Is this an easy fix?


not easy, unit must be stripped to allow access to bottom seals and bearing/s. Special tools needed and a goog knowlege of the wiring.

Maytag top load washing machine leaking water from bottom


The machine is leaking water from the bottom, I think the leak is in the area near where the motor is mounted. Before we noticed the water comes from underneath the washer, we smelled like burning rubber.

Hello, on most Maytag units you can take the the front panel off by removing 2 phillips screws , 1 on each side of the front panel. With the panel off you can run the machine and see where the water is coming from. Good luck

Washer leaking water on floor


Need to check drain pump and its hose connections. If its not from the drum seal then that's usually where the leaks occur.
