Question about Maytag Washing Machines

Open Question

My Maytag front load washer is leaking. It is 3 years old. I have had one headache after another with the unit from Day 1. But today, I have a new problem: It is leaking from inside the front of the unit; water runs down the inside of the unit and out the bottom onto my floor. I have taken the bottom panel off to inspect the source of the leak and discovered that water is running down the left side of the rubber door seal from outside the tub. I filled a glass of water and slowly poured it down the area where the soap dispenser drawer was (removed it for test) and observed water coming from an area between the soap dispenser drawer/tube and the opening in the seal that supplies water to the tub. I have read other posts on this site that discuss other models and how the dispenser drawer should be cleaned; it is clean. It still leaks. Is there a gasket or valve inside that particular area? I would think it would be just a straight unobstructed line that allows for flow of water/detergent direclty into the tub. But then again, I am not an expert. Any ideas as to what the problem could be and how I can fix it?

Removing the lower front panel (3 screws nearest floor), and opening the round, white water pump filter cap (be ready to catch about 2 gallons of water!) is the best place to start. All you need is a Phillips head screwdriver and a large, flat pan (deep turkey tray works well)!

YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE what I found in my filter housing this morning (see photo below)!

The washer is working fine now, although I may go back and remove the entire water pump so it can be dismantled, thoroughly cleaned, and reinstalled.

SOURCE: Tricity Bendix AW1400W front load. Water leaks

Ether the washer is over filling or has warn out the seals. If it has been abused (overloaded) it needs serious work. other wise the sensor may be stuck. Try 1/2 cup of vinegar with a load and see if that cleans the sensor travel area past the drum but inside the tub. This is a common problem for an old machine. Best leak is on the door and you may be able to tighten the screws but be careful it could mis aligne it so tighten a small amount and test by closeing the door. Do this at least twice before turning the screws hard.

Hello,

There is an article of clothing stuck inside the dispenser housing. Remove the top and the housing to get to the hose and clean it out. Very common issue, I know this unit very well.

How about loose fill hose connections?

How about incomplete shutoff of the internal fill control valve between wash cycles?

Maytag washer leaking from bottom


This is a fix for the Maytag MAH2400AWW, the machine kept displaying SUDS, the machine is 2-3 years old and it started doing this 4-5 months ago. I cleaned out the washer, and used HE detergent, ran it empty, to try to flush it out, used approved cleaners and ran it throught the cycle, still no good. I finally took out out a maintenance contract with BSF, the service guy came out today pulled the pump off and showed me inside it was missing half of the blades off the impeller. I remembered a year ago a coin had wedged in the pump which I took out and put back, not realising it had taken some teeth off the pump. Therefore the pump was not able to pump out the sudsy water very well which was staying inside the drum causing the suds light to come on, they installed a new pump for me, which was covered in the contract for free. Now it's working like new again.

Realistically, a 10-year old Maytag is nearing the end of its usual life. The pump may be leaking at random times during a wash cycle. If you put 50% of the cost of a new one into repairs, it is time to thing seriously about replacement of the machine.

MLE2000 front load washer


Hi..I had the same problem yesterday...the maching would start when I pushed the button and then stop..I had to push the button again to get it going..My stacked set is around 8 years old.

Here's what we did..moved the washer away from the water source and unscrewed the water intake lines..there is a little screen there...took the screen out of both hot and cold lines..one screen has some debris in it..the other was almost completely blocked..we are on a well and sometimes dirt..etc..gets in the lines..

Today no problems doing the laundry..its working like new..
