SOURCE: Leaking on floor only after shuts down.

Griz, check the vent and see if you have bunch of gunk thats collecting water in it. Sometimes the spray arms are cracked and direct water into the vent. If this happens you will have leaking down the center of the door. Catriver...post back

SOURCE: water leaking under frigerator on the left side

HI,

your drain is clogged. you may have a catch for your drain where you see leak coming from. that may pull off and you can see if their is trash build up in it. you are going to need to take the panel off the back of freezer. inside back of freezer you will see screws. they will need to come out, If you have ice maker that will need to be removed also. once back panel is off you will see your coils beneath the coils it will most likely have a sheet of ice. turn machine off and take a hair dryer and defrost the ice. once ice is gone take a cup of hot water and run thru drain to see if unclogged. repeat if drain is not clear. the ice in drain tube will eventually un clog. use a steamer. much quicker.

any further question let me know.

SOURCE: Maytag washer MAH6500 leak - door boot issue?

there is a drain hole at the very bottom of the sump
about 1/4 in
if you ahve any other holes you will need a new boot
there is no real way to patch them, most patches will not flex enough to stay in place
ive included the part number you can order from sears
22003070
the best way to get one over on sears is to order it
then you cazn either fix it kinda hard but id walk you through it
or when the part arrives shedule service, just tell them its leaking

only when the tech gets there tell them you have a boot
sears hates self diagnostics and you will go to the bottom of the list

The defrost drain hole in the freezer side is frozen closed.
Turn off the fridge.Remove the bottom bin and look on the back wall of the freezer for the drain pan. It will have a block of ice in it. Use a hair dryer to defrost the pan AND the drain hole inside the pan,until you can pour a cup of water through the drain hole.

Yes. Your defrost drain hole in the lower rear of the freezer is frozen over with ice. Turn off the fridge. Remove the shelves and bins from the freezer side. Break up any ice on the floor of the freezer and dispose of it. Use a hair dryer to melt the ice over the drain hole in the rear portion of the freezer. Once it is clear pour a 1/4 cup of bleach into the drain hole.

The defrost drain hole in the bottom of the freezer has frozen over. Turn off the fridge. Remove the shelves and bins. Remove the rear panel of the freezer. You will see ice on the bottom rear of the freezer. Use a hair dryer to melt the ice,especially in the drain hole once you get through the surface ice. Once the drain hole is clear,pour a cup of hot water through the drain hole followed by 1/4 cup bleach. Re-install your parts and turn the fridge back on.

Freezer leaks water even after water supply turned off


Remove the food from the lower portion of the freezer and remove the 2 screws which hold the rear freezer panel on . Remove the panel and use a hair dryer to defrost the ice built up over the drain . Once you see the black drain hole , concentrate on defrosting the hole . Once defrosted , the ice water will drain into the hole . I would use a small hose inserted into the drain and blow thru , to remove any debris built up inside the drain . Reinstall the panel and food .
