Remove the case and jumper the lid switch hot wires. Then do a load with the case off.
You can do that to look for leaks and located strange noises. Washing machine leaks while it is filling up with - themobilian_2164.jpg
You will probably find your washer has a leaky pump.

Leaking water from the hose connections


Had the same problem w/the water inlet w/initial installation. When the water inlet was hooked to the faucet and into the washer, water leaked on the washer end. The manual tells you to put a new "flat" washer (provided) in the washer machine water inlet, but water still leaked. It's actually the not flat washer, it's more of an "U" shape washer that goes into the washer machine water inlet and fits right over the filter in the water inlet valve. Leak was solved, but faucet was on and water was not filling in the drum. Turn power on, select cycle, water level, and press start and water should start filling the drum.

Maytag atlantis washer got water leaking from


I have an Atlantis myself. There can be several problems. Did you check that the fill hoses in the back are not leaking? Are they tight? There are hoses inside the washer and a pump near the front. I replaced my pump last year and I,m getting ready to replace the thrust bearing assembly (spin issues). Does the washer leak with every load? make sure water is not splashing over the tub when filling. The front panel comes off if you can and leave off and watch to see where water is coming from.

Water leaking to the floor


check the hose connections to make sure that they are tight. then check other hose connections. after you find where the water is leaking, tighten the hose clamps (usually need a screwdriver) and make sure that the hose is not cracked, ripped or dried up and brittle.

My GE WCSE4160B2WW top load washer is leaking.


Check the easy stuff first, fill hoses tight?- drain hose cracked? Failing those checks, cut a piece of cardboard slightly smaller than the size of your washer. Slip the cardboard under the washer and run a short load. Look carefully at the water mark on the cardboard. The mark on the cardboard the water leak will leave, will help you tell from which side or front to back the leak is common from. This will help point you in the correct direction to look for the trouble maker
thanks.

I have purchased a Maytag washer mtw6300tqo and it leaked from the first day it arrived. It does not leak DURING the cycles but leaks profusely a few hours later. I have had service techs look at it and...


Is there water inside the tub after it starts leaking? If so the valve that lets the water into the machine could have a bad seal and overfilling the machine with water when it is not being used. Or one of your water hose seals could be leaking. Make sure the hoses are tight. Beyond that there is nothing to cause a profuse amount of water when the machine is not being used.

Water comes out the bottom of washer as fast as it goes in the top


hazy, it's possible it's running out your pump. You need to pull the cabinet off to get a real look at where the leak is coming from. Check out the pics...and post back.
