Theres probably two screws towards the bottom (phillips) that need to be removed then pull the bottom towards you and it will unhinge the clips at the top,. you probably need a hub and seal kit. very labor intensive job. special tools required. _MJ_

I have a Magtag Washer, Model MAV6257, 7000, 8000 series. It is leaking water..

Hello Denise,

Good morning,your Maytag washer is very likely leaking from the drain pump,it is teh usual place those washers leak from. To access the a putty knife in the seam,between the front panel and the bottom of the top,about a inch in on either side and depress a clip,the top will then pop up and can be raised...tehn you will see in the back side of the front panel 2 screws that hold the front panel to the cabinet,remove those screws and the front panel will come off...when the front panel is off the drain pump will be in the right side of the base frame ..inspect it for leakage and replace if necessary.

If it turns out that something besides the pump is leaking,please be sure to get back to me and i'll determine what else it could be

The part number for the drain pump is 35-6780 it could be purchased at your local appliance partrs store or online at

Thanks for using FIXYA.COM
have a wonderful and blessed day,

My washer is leaking when draining very small leak what can i do

Start with inspecting the entire lenghth of the drain hose for any type of pin hole or abrasions that could be the source of your leak.
If the leak seems to be coming from the inside of the machine, take a putty knife or something similar and insert it between the front panel and the top panel that the lid is connected to about two inches in from the edge of the side panels and you should feel a fastener, push inward or towards the back of the machine, you will have to push hard, this will seperate the top and front panels, lift up on the front panel and remove it, now inspect the inside of the machine and try to locate the source of the leak, you may have to run the washer thru different cycles(fill,drain,spin,etc.) to see the leak source.
Pay close attention to the pump area for the leak, this has been a source of leaks in the past, with a plastic pump housing, they have been known to develope leaks by way of holes worn thru the plastic housing!

My maytag washer stoped during the cycle with 8

You may have blown the internal fuse located in the lid switch. Could be you over loaded the washer and blew the fuse.
Unplug the washer and remove the four screws holding the control panel front in place. Two screws on top and two screws under control panel.
Remove the control panel and tilt forward.
Locate the lid switch assemble and remove glass fuse and inspect.
Door switch assembly should be replaced. When you order the proper fuse it should come with the door switch assembly.
Replace assembly. Reinstall the front control panel and four screws.
Plug machine in and test.

Washer is leaking a little at the bottom

The cause of the leak may well be a clog in the pump. As clothes spin around inside the washer, many times items left in pockets work their way into the pump when it rinses and spins out. To inspect the pump, remove the bottom panel. You will see a hose attached to the pump. Detach the
hose and inspect the inside of the pump. You may need a pair of needlenose pliers or a screwdriver to feel your way around inside the pump for any debris. If the pump is clear, inspect the hoses. Over time, the ends of the hoses become soft and a leak can develop. If the end of the hose is leaking, you can sometimes trim the end and reuse the hose but if there's no play in the hose or if you find the leak elsewhere, a new hose will be needed.

Machine leaks when clothes are washed but not

this could be a simple issue or a severe issue.
if you feel adventurous disconnect unit, and remove Rear access panel. inspect the rear bearring at the pulley, check for oil leakage and water residue. if there is water around the bearring the unit requires an overhaul. if nothing you should be ok.
it could be a disconnected vent at the top of the machine.
remove front access panel and inspect all rubber boots and connections for water.
this is best done just after washer has leaked, inspect where water is comming from.
there are many things that could be causing this.

We have a 17 year old Maytag Washer, Model LA 9700, that is leaking. It is not an outside hose. How do I get inside the machine to look at the internal hose? I can't see anything through the back side...

The front panel should come off your washer allowing you access to the interior cabinet. Along the seam where the top panel meets the front of the washer, there should be a couple of retaining clips. If you take a putty knife and push in, while lifting up on the top panel, the clips should release. Inspect the dispenser hoses, water inlet lines, drain pump, drain hoses, the hose connections to the wash tub and along the wash tub bottom where the tub seal is. If you go to and type in your model number, there are some excellent exploded view drawings showing how your washer is assembled. I hope this helps you.

Leaking Washer Machine

The right front corner is possibly a low spot where the water is runnung to. Two possible points of the leak are the main door boot could have a tear in it or the drain pump could have a hole. It is possible to look inside of your machine while it is running. First I must warn you to take care and not touch anything inside while there is power to your machine. First open the door and you will see 2 screws on the left and 2 screws on the right sides. one pair of screwws will mount the hinges and the other set goes through a small triangular bit of metal. remove the screws and leave the door in place. The sides of the front panel between the door and edge of the machine will rotate outward slightly and the whole front panel will pull forward. at about 45 degrees the panel can be lifted off of the lower supports and placed out of the way. You will now be able to run the machine and observe exactly where the leak is coming from. Again all of the electrical connections you see are live when the machine is plugged in so do not reach inside of your machine.
