Question about Maytag MAH2400A Front Load Washer
Hi I have a Maytag 24" MAH2400A front load washer that started leaking intermittently and can not figure out from where or how? I've checked the drain, all hoses and nothing, have also tried to overfill and or drain the machine and nothing. Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

likely a rubber gasket slipped off the groove.... try taking it apart and slipping the gasket back on.
heavy loads have more force during the spin cycle.

You have tried both a Hot fill and a Cold fill and still no water flow?
You could try going into Service Mode and turn on the water inlet valves with console commands. See page 16 of the Service Manual and see if you can turn the water inlet valves one at a time and get water to flow into the machine. Getting into Service Mode is easy to do
The Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
If still no water flow it would be time to check 120VAC on the water valve solenoids when you command them on in Service Mode. If no 120VAC present then we might have a Stuck open High level pressure switch which would disconnect 120VAC to the Control Board relays that operate to switch 120VAC to the Hot/Cold solenoid valves.
How do you feel about troubleshooting? Do you have a DVM? I have the schematic in PDF format if you need. Let me know if you want to DIY the fix......Rich

If you pull the power to the machine and water continues to flow then the water inlet valve is stuck open. You will need to replace the water inlet valve. The Service manual will step you thru the process.
FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
The water inlet valve is p/n 25001046 Substitution: 12002242 Water valve shop around for best price.
Is this Cold water inlet valve issue? If so and you only do Cold water wash/rinse like me you could switch the fill hose connections from hot to cold to hot at the faucet. Turn the hot water faucet valve off and select Warm/Warm temp selection and you will be filling with cold water wash/rinse. Maybe that would hold you over until you replace the Water Inlet Valve assembly.
You can check out your pressure switch transitions as I had this poster do for his issue at this link http://www.fixya.com/support/t5471295-washer_fills_water_begins_agitate_but
His issue seems to be a definite stuck pressure switch not water inlet valve such as yours. Check to make sure your pressure switch is OK by watching the fill point transitions as I mention in the post.
If you machine is a series 12 or above the Low and Mid fill pressure switch transitions will toggle at the same time. Series 12 and above us a 2 level pressure switch. Series 10 and 1 use a 3 level pressure switch.
Good Luck………….. D*ick
