Water Leaking from pre-wash and main wash cold water solenoid

Noticed a small water puddle on the fllor in front of the washer. Did the usual investigation and noticed the leak was coming from the bottom of both the pre-wash and main wash solonids.
I took the solenoids off, moved the springs, plastic and metal inserts as well as rubber washer beneath. Reassembled the units and still a small, now slower drip leak.
Any idea if I need to change the entire solenoids or only the small rubber gasket undert he unit? Besides this the unit still seems to operate fine.

We had the small leak problem. It was a cut in the bellows at the door. Lower side. We could see it if we just spread the gasket just inside the door.

First check is the standpipe drain. The hose that comes from washer should not be inserted more than 4". More than that can cause a syphoning situation that can cause leaks from beneath. If that seems okay you will have to see where water is coming from by observing the machine in action with back or bottom service panel removed (if it has one.)

Water continuously seeps into the detergent dispenser, then into the tub. OVer night, the tub is half full, wife opens the door, and water spills all over the floor?


It sounds like you have a leaking solenoid valve, located where the hoses connect to the machine. Find out which one it is by shutting of the water to one side (either the hot or cold) and wait. If the washer fills, the hose that is open is the culprit. Chances are that the leaking solenoid is the one that you use most often (say, if you always wash with cold water). Here's what you need to do after that:
1. Drain down the tub. Easiest way: run a short cycle.
2. Make sure that both water valves (at the wall) are closed. Unplug the washer.
3. Disconnect the hoses from the machine (Caution:Water!). Catch the water in a bucket or pot.
4. Gain access to the solenoid valve that you determined to be leaking by. This is usually done by removing the back panel.
5. Make a sketch of the solenoid, showing which wire goes where, what color it is, etc. This helps in the re-assembly.
6. Remove the solenoid. Take it, along with your make and model number to your local appliance parts supply store.
7. Install your new solenoid.

I ran a load & after switching the wash i noticed a puddle of water sitting at the bottom of the washer


water puddles usually indicate a leaking water pump-check the gaskets to make sure they are sealed before replacing the pump

Small puddle of water underneath washer when wash cycle was completed.


That could be 1 of a couple things.

1) During the agitate cycle... some water could've made it out of tub.

2) Possible Tub Crack (or overflow line)

3) Check your inlet lines

I would run it again watching it very carefully to determine if any of these are the problem.

Puddle under 1 yr old washing machine hours after it is finished


Sounds like either the gasket on the inlet is leaking or not tight or the solenoid housing is cracked causing the leak. When its in use the pressure from the line is realased when the solenoid is opened letting water in. When not in use the solenoid stays closed allowing pressure from the line to build causing the gasket to leak. Check your gaskets, and solenoid housing for leaks and then check to make sure your water pressure is not set too high.

Not sure if you've ever resolved this issue, but I'm dealing with it myself. I have come across this service manual that gives a very detailed illustration of the systems, how it works and how to test it.
Focus on pages 15 thru 25. Hope this helps you.

dsands, if the noise is like a train roaring then it could be the bearing. The fact that you have some water leaking leads me to believe that the tub seal leaked onto the bearing. Now this could be covered under the 5 year warranty, depending on the tech that comes out. Another possiblility is that something is caught in the pump and it is leaking. You would have to open the front panel to get a look. On these Maytags if something gets in that pump like a button etc., they will scream like a raped ape. With out being there my gut feeling tells me the seals leaking and ruined the bearing. Catriver.
