The black hose that drains the water out has come off and draining water straight out as it fills. I cannot for the life of me figure out where it connects to. Any help would be great!


The black discharge hose (the J shaped one) is connected to the output side of the discharge pump inside the washer. It's likely the hose has come off.
  • first, unplug the washer.
  • Shut off the hot and cold water faucets to the washer.
  • Pull the washer away so you have access to the back.
  • Remove screws holding the back panel in place.
  • Remove panel.
  • Examine the hose where it attaches to the pump. Look for cracks, holes or broken ends.
  • Examine the clamp attaching the hose. Is it broken or worn?
  • Replace any of the above hoses and/or clamps if faulty with hardware comparable with your model. Re-assemble in reverse sequence of dis-assembly.
  • Attach hot/cold water lines.
  • Ensure ALL excess water has been removed before plugging washer in. Ensure ground wire is attached!
  • Plug washer in and start cycle. Examine for leaks.

Leaking maytag neptune washer


The pump and its various hoses are easily accessable through the back panel. The boot can collect coins which can block the pump. Squeeze the boot and empty it of all coins. Coins can ruin the impellers on the pump. A new pump costs $100 on line. The drain hose can be plugged by dimes and pennies. Good luck.

Go to fill machine water comes out of bottom


You may have a leaky fill hose, or you may have a faulty 'donut' seal, which sits on top of the transmission and is sandwiched between the inner and outer tubs. You could also have leaky inlet hoses, which are attached to the wall water valve and then to the back of the washer. At worst, you may have corrosion on your outer tub that resulted in a hole through it.


Pull your washer out from the wall so you can access the back. Try to see exactly where the leak is coming from. If your leak is from the inlet hoses, which is the most common place, simply shut off the water supply, remove and replace BOTH of the hoses, even if only one is leaking.

If the inlet hoses are okay, remove the back panel of the washer (it's simply attached with screws - easy to remove), start the fill cycle of your washer and watch for where it is leaking. Look for calcium buildups on and around the hoses. These buildups would indicate a leak.

If you find that an internal hose is leaking, remove the spring clamps at each end of the bad hose and obtain a replacement.

ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR MACHINE BEFORE MAKING REPAIRS!!!

My washer is leaking from the bottom. I took the bottom panel off and found a black hose that is not attached to anything. When the washer is filling up the water is leaking out of this hose and all over...


if the hose is comming off the bottom of the tub, it will usually connect to the pump
if its the one afte the pump it may connect to the inside back wall, where your drain hose is

No cold water is coming into the tub.


The most common reason would be a blocked inlet screen. Turn off water shut offs behind washer and unhook the cold inlet hose from the back of the washer. Remove the screen from inside where the hose came off of, then replace the screen. Re-attach hose and turn valves back on. Check for leaks. Test washer. If that does not solve the problem, the next most likely cause would be the cold water inlet valve. (The part the inlet hose screws onto)

Leaking from behind?


If the leak is coming from the back of the washer, the problem may be attributed to either a leaking water inlet valve, or the associated internal hoses that run from the valve to the dispenser. The following link explains how to access the inside of the washer and/or replace the valve (if required):

If the leak is coming from under the front of the washer, the problem may be the drain pump. These pumps can develop cracks and start leaking. they are non-serviceable and will require replacing is defective. The following link explains how: http://www.fixya.com/support/r397092-replacing_water_pump Inspect all internal hoses and hose connections as well. There are two drain hoses on the water pump, and several small hoses near the water inlet valve. These hoses can develop leaks over time. If the leak appears to be coming from the bottom of the wash tub, you may have a leaking tub seal, or cracked wash tub (worst case scenario). You will see tell-tale signs of water marks on the gearcase (transmission) if this were the case. On the lower right hand side of the wash tub is an air dome with a small rubber air hoses attached. Make sure this hose is still attached and has no leaks. The air hose can slip off the nipple it is attached to and water will begin to pour out of the washer when it starts to fill. This will be an "attention-getting" leak as water will gush everywhere. Double check the air hose just in case. If parts are required, you can purchase from any of the following websites:

All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best deals.

If you have any questions about this repair, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this helpful.

Leaking wash machine


Depending on where exactly the leak is coming from, it could be a drain hose, drain pump, or tub seal. If this is a top-loader, here's how you can tell:

1. If the leak is coming from the BACK area under the washer, this can be caused by a leaking fill hose, dispenser hose, drain hose, or fill valve.
2. If the leak is coming from UNDER the center area of the washer, this could be your tub seal, a crack in the tub, or an air dome hose leak. NOTE: If the air dome hose is leaking, the washer will fill continuously and not turn off.
3. If the leak appears to be coming from the FRONT under the washer, this could be your drain pump, or drain hoses.

Posting a model number, could assist with determining how your washer is configured. I suspect you may have a drain pump leaking as this is the most common cause, but I want to be sure.
