Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
Our washer is leaking while it fills up. It appears that something has happened where the hose shoots water into the lid. The seal along the bottom of the upper hood that goes all the way around the tank is torn, the plastic tray on top of the tank is worn, and when it is filling we can see a mist of water spraying out the top behind the lid. The seal really doesn't look like it does much in this area and we cannot figure out how the worn peice could be the problem, but the hose doesn't appear to be miss aligned either. Not sure what to do.
I was finally able to fix our leak. Noticed that when closed the back of the lid bent down a little toward the middle. That was enough obstruct the water shooting into the lid causing it to spray out of the top a little and leak out the back alot. Took the lid off, bent it back, and now it works!

If the hose is not misaligned then the seals at least have to be replaced. Also, make sure there is no water coming in from the detergent box connection.
