Question about Maytag Washing Machines

1 Answer

We have a 17 year old Maytag Washer, Model LA 9700, that is leaking. It is not an outside hose. How do I get inside the machine to look at the internal hose? I can't see anything through the back side "peep hole"?

The front panel should come off your washer allowing you access to the interior cabinet. Along the seam where the top panel meets the front of the washer, there should be a couple of retaining clips. If you take a putty knife and push in, while lifting up on the top panel, the clips should release. Inspect the dispenser hoses, water inlet lines, drain pump, drain hoses, the hose connections to the wash tub and along the wash tub bottom where the tub seal is. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number, there are some excellent exploded view drawings showing how your washer is assembled. I hope this helps you.

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.

17 year old maytag washing machine leaking water under washer towards the right front.


The pump is at the right front. When the seal goes bad the pump will leak down the shaft. Check the hoses too.

The drain hose on our washer is leaking outside the washer onto the floor. I bought a replacement at Lowe's, but I don't know how to remove the old one. The model is an Amana #LW1502L.


its on a barbed plastic fitting on the machine, the hose gets hardened from toe waste water going through it over the years, take a serrated knife or hacksaw blade and cut a **** lengthwise on old hose,be careful not to cut into machine fitting when doing so tho

Maytag Centennial: Not starting, maybe lid lock issue? How to install new magnetic lid latch? then is replacing lid lock next or could it be something entirely different? Help, please, and THANK YOU! I have a Maytag Centennial washer MVWC450XW3 that quit working last week. In hindsight, I could see that there had been a history of "stuff" going on with the washer, all around the lid lock;i.e. - last time it worked I had to select a couple of different cycles before it finally started. SO Far, I have tried to get the diagnostic codes but failed a bit at that. I THINK that I was getting an F5E1 error. I was however at least able to access the diagnostic menu, and notice TWO things: No matter what, the Lid Locked LED never comes on, ever. Next thing I notice is when I do a short cycle diagnostically, it never agitates or spins. It fills various temp water, does not agitate, then it seems to suck the water back out. IN the end, I ordered just the magnetic part of the lid lock (the part that is actually on the lid) because I could see mine was rusted all the way away, but am not too sure how to put it on. Therefore I just put it in the slot where it would go if I had installed it. Incidentally II asked my ma if she had noticed anything going on with the washer and she said No at first but then with prompting (she's 81) allowed that she had indeed noticed something wrong with the lid shutting so she had cleaned out that "little hole"{ very well and oiled it to make sure it was working. So again my two main questions are: How to install the lid latch, do I need to take out all of the screws around the glass? and Should I next move on to buying a lid lock part or could it be something entirely different?
