Washer leaks during fill up from underneath

It is going to either be the tub hose that goes to the pump or the pump itself. If both of these are ok then you would need to replace the tub seal. To replace the center tub seal you remove the tub and motor from the washer by getting the 2 springs off there and taking the hoses off. Unplug the motor harness and the whole thing comes out. Here it some photos of how it all goes down.

Check the two lengths of 1/4" plastic tubing, the long one that runs from the filler at the botton left side of the tub, and the short one that runs from the load switch (water level switch) to the shield assembly (formed plastic cover for the controls). When under pressure, the tubing can come loose from the plastic nipple on either side of the shield, leaking water while the tub is filling. If either length of tubing is detached from the nipple, reattach the tubing and use a 1/4" hose clamp to prevent it from detaching again.

Maytag legacy series tub wont fill

Your drain hose is too low or there is no air gap where the hose enters the drain line.
This causes the water to siphon out as it fills.

Maytag Legacy Toploader Leaks under the tub

After looking at various posts on your site, it seemed to me to be a gasket issue under the tub and the unit was going to have to be dismantled. I bought the set used, so I thought this would amount to more than I payed for the unit itself...maybe more than the both off them. So I did what I should of done when I bought these: I went to Lowe's and picked up a new sratch and dent set. They deliver this afternoon.

This is a great sight, but I hope I don't have to visit in the near future with a washer dryer problem. Thanks!

You may need a new water valve. Turn the water off at the wall or source.

Replace the water vavle. You can go on line and order parts from almost any source. I like repairclinic and partselect go to Google and google your Manufactures name and parts, ex Maytag parts.

You will need your model and serial number.

Maytag SAV washer leaking all over floor

I have the exact same washer with the exact same problem. I have a home warranty that covers appliances so when they sent out the Sears technician, he took a list of parts and replaced about 9 things for a grand total of $450. If I didn't have a home warranty that only charged me $55 to do it, I would have just bought another non-Maytag washer.
