Maytag Frontloader MFW9700S Frontloader Disaster

4/11/08 Yikes! We bought this model in October of 2007 and were quite happy with it until this week and now I'm smelling an overripe lemon!!!! The first issue occurred about a week ago when I put a small load of laundry in before I went to bed. I woke up to find a load of soaking clothes, a torn gasket and the O-ring clamp laying in the barrel. Fortunately, it is still under warranty, so I called the appliance store. Okay...the guy comes and replaces the gasket and O-ring and says we must be overloading it. :o Next load several days later...water comes spewing out during the rinse cycle. Call repairman. Tinkers with it again. Says we must be overloading it.. Yea, okay... next hour after the guy leaves...water spewing out again! Repairman coming again today. I'm smelling another lemon similar to the Neptune disaster, but I suspect I'm one of the early birds in making this discovery, on this particular model at least.

Maytag the washer quits and a f20 or f11 shows up

Its a water inlet problem (no water or insufficient water supply) check your washer inlets, maybe the water valves are off or you don't have enough water pressure.
