Question about Maytag Neptune MAH7500WH Front Load Washer
The plumber couldn't figure it out but perhaps you can. Periodically and well after the MAH5500BWW completes it's wash cycle (e.g., after 11PM and before 7 AM) there is a water leak (about 1/4 to 1/2 gallon) that seems to be coming from where the drain hose fits in the drain. There is enough pressure to spray an appliance that is next to the washer and the back of the washer -- at the same level as the drain pipe opening. This just occurred while we were on vacation, had the water feeds turned off, and verified that there was no water leak after using the washer. In fact, it would appear that it leaked multiple times during the period we were gone given the amount of water. The washer appears to work great during its normal operation and there are no signs of water leaks during operation. Thanks for any suggestions! Ron
ngafm1 at your service,
Water sprayed out of ( the leaky washers in the hot water shut off valve which need to be replaced.
They are inside all valves and wear out in time from normal use!
Or you can have a bad solder joint at the junction between the hot water shut off valve or the the pipe joint!
these washers in any shutoff valve can leak intermittently till they get worse and then leak all the time!
you should be able to stand there and watch it as you open and close the shut off valve again and again , and then stay there and watch it start leaking!
Or when you are opening it and closing the valve 4 times straight you may feel a trickle of water from the valve stem!!!!
This means washers in the valve stem need to be replaced!!!
Get a new plumber !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm no plumber but I do under stand this!
