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

SOURCE: Maytag washer loud sqeal when

The loud squealing can be caused by a couple of things. The following link explains this to you:

This is a problem that can be accomplished by the "do-it-yourselfer" if you are mechanically inclined. In addition, a special is required (and recommended) to compress the large spring located under the Brake Stator. If you go to and type in your model number, look under the "Transmission" heading and refer to the drawing. There's an excellent illustration of the parts I discuss in the link and how they are assembled.

The spring that you must compress is item number 20.
The brake rotor is item 23.
The snubber is item 24.
The brake stator is item 25.

This can be a challenging repair is you've never worked on a washer before. Now, if you wish to pursue this is another reputable website that offers some additional assistance that I need not see on the previous website. They offer a service manual (item #1094741) that provides step-by-step instructions on repairs. Maytag provides excellent instructions with their replacement parts, but this manual may come in handy. Additional tools that I would recommend are:

Spring Removal Tool (item #455570) - makes it easier to remove the wash tub suspension springs.
Brake/Bearing/Seal Removal Tool (item #997909) - this tool is required to compress the brake spring.

The following link shows an illustration of tools mentioned:

I know this may seem overwhelming, so I would recommend trying to use the recommendations in the first link I provided you on how to quieten the problem first. In some cases, this is all it takes to quieten the problem. It sounds like to me that your brake rotor is glazed over and needs replacement. I hope you find some of this information helpful. Let me know if you have any questions.

Sudsy water is leaking from the machine

Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
The tub seal is the most common thing that causes Maytag washers to leak. This is unfortunate because the tub seal is an expensive repair job and not one I would suggest doing yourself. I say this because it is complicated and requires special tools to perform this job. To check if the tub seal is bad, first remove the front panel by removing the two screws from the bottom of the front panel. If you have a newer model, prize the bottom clips with a screwdriver. Then pull the bottom of the panel until the top clips release. Then start the washer and watch for a leak around transmission where it goes through the tub. If it does leak then the tub seal is bad and needs replacing. If you have the tool or willing to buy it click here for instructions on how to replace the tub seal. If the tub seal doesn't, leak you probably found the leak while performing this test.

We have a kenmore elite washer mod. 970-c40062-00 ser. xc11700832. the washer leaks, and is very noisy. It is 10 years old

Your Stainless Steel drum is supported inside of the washer tub by a spider assembly. The assemply, which is made of cast aluminum, has corroded (steel and aluminum and detegent don't mix) and the spider assembly has broken. The drum has likely wobbled enough to wear a hole through the tub. You need to replace the drum and spider assembly, and tub.
