My EState washer TAWS850PQ0 is about 1 and 1/2 years old and now all of a sudden it has started to leak from the inside of the machine. The supply lines are dry and the drain line is dry at both the machine and the waste line. I have watched it run and drain. The only time it leaks is during the drain cycle and it seems that some of the waste water is leaking from within. The discharge tube seems to be free of debris since the volume of water coming through seems the same as when we first got it.

Water leaking from tub seal into motor possibly? Try doing spin with dry newspaper under the machine and check for leaks. Could also possibly be water heater element loose or breaking down - leaks from drain hose or water pump body into windings? Dry news paper test should highlight where leaks are coming from.
!0 years old is ancient for a machine and you might consider replacement rather than a repair which will only be throwing good money after bad. Do you drive a 10 year old car? if you do, you expect repair bills to mount up! same with washer. I bet it doesn't owe you much!
There are several ways the water could be leaking, depending how old the washer is it could be leaking from the large rubber seals that are located in the front of the washer if it is front load or under if a top load. The best way to figure out where the leak is coming from is to get a visual from the inside. Unfortunately you have to remove one or two covers to get a good look. Usually you will see a stain residue from where the water could be leaking from.
Most likely you have a leaking water pump. This is not too hard to change if you are somewhat mechanically inclined it is around a 5 on a scale of 10. Your model # should be on the back of machine towards the top. If you want to change it yourself let me know and I will give you directions. Let me know if I can do anything else to help.
does unit leak constant or only when spinning ther are 2 screws done low on front panel fill unit with water and watch center shaft there is a seal below basket
inside washer changing seal is a little difficult have also had this style of washer leak when starting spin cycle if water has not drained out fast enough http://www.repairclinic.com/Washing-Machine-Top-Load-Maytag-Style-Appliance-Diagram
this page has a break down of normal maytag top load machine part at center is called boot and seal have also had thi type unit leak where bolts go through tub
good luck ron
I have the same problem I think. During the wash cycle, water sometimes starts spraying/leaking from the detergent dispenser drawer. This orignally only happened during a 'NORMAL' wash and when I ran a 'SPEED WASH' it was ok. Now all of a sudden it's doing it during the 'SPEED WASH' also. I though it might be the water pressure so I turned down the flow going to the washer but that doesn't seem to help. If I knew how the detergent system worked maybe it would be easier to solve this problem.
Leaking pump or drain connexion most likely
you will have to get under to check it out.
Put a several sheet to news paper under the machine and pull it out as it stands to see where the water is coming from front/back/sides
Do a wash and repeat.
But you will need the service of an engineer I guess unless you are good with a wrench.
