Leaking from my MaytagPAV2300AWW

I have checked all - what else can it be? I think it's only when the washer spins out - it's leaking underneath and I can't pin point the location. I put paper under the machine - and it got wet toward the back right(looking at the front of the machine, then later Isaw it running out from the back left! I've checked w/ a mirror, flashlight - uncovered the back area where you can see the drain pump asembly - there is dust and no way it's been leaking there - that I can see. There is a thin tube I noticed in the back upper area (inside) that goes to nothing - what tube is that? very thin, small clasp onthe end. Did this possibly come loose? It doesn't have any drips or water running out of it though.I can see that the dust has been removed inan area at the back left and can't see up inside enough to find the source of my leak. Help? Any suggestions besides a repairman. What would be leaking inthat area? Thanks in advance.

Had this problem. In my case the leak was comming from the fill indicator tube. It is a small tube running from the side of the tub to the control panel. Air pressure built up in this tube activates a pressure sensor that will shut off the fill valve at different levels depending on the pressure. The tube had become dry and cracked at the joint where it met the tub. I didn't discover the source of the problem unitl the hose actually tore loose and the thing overflowed. Remove this tube and inspect it and I bet you will find a small crack or tear.

Whirlpool WTW5100VQ2. Think it needs water intake valve it drips inside continuously even when off. Last night during a load it leaked alot from underneath. Is this diff problem or intake valve also?

Sounds like your water valve is leaking. If you shut the water valves off at the wall and it stops then for sure your valve is leaking. The leaking from under the washer could be coming from the pump leaking, overloading, hoses leaking on the connections or a tub seal. I would check the pump first, just tip it back a little and see if you feel water on the pump, it's right up front. This washer is very easy to work on.

Water leaking on fast spin

hi Eamon.
this is what i found from the internet.
Washing machine leaks on spin Last updated on February 6th, 2017
Sometimes a washing machine leaks on spin, but not before. If this is the case, either it's going into spin with too much water inside, or something may only be leaking under the pressure and tub movement caused by spinning.
If you can see water running out of the soap drawer during spin it's probably gone into spin without pumping the water away properly. If it wasn't pumping water out at all it would not go into spin, but a partial obstruction can reduce the flow enough to allow a spin with the water unable to escape fast enough. This causes water to be forced up into the drawer or out of the steam vent at the back. If you suspect this check the last section of this article - Washer leaks from drawer
If water is coming from underneath when it spins then it's more likely to be caused by something leaking only under pressure. Check the door seal all around inside for slits and small holes, especially higher up, which may only open up and let water out when the washer is bouncing around on spin.
Other possible causes are hoses inside the machine which have small holes which open up during spin or which leak where they connect to the tub under spin conditions. These type of leaks often leave tell-tale rust or dry detergent marks. After that there could be a crack or small hole high up in the plastic outer tub which only gets exposed to water when it's forced around the tub during spin.
You are looking for something that is moving and allowing water out when the tub bounces around under load, or something high letting water out when it gets thrashed around the top half of the machine on spin. If you can't see anything obvious get a washing machine engineer

Fisher and Paykel Washer leaking water

hi there,

the leak underneath could be from the pump or the drain hose. some washers have a tub to pump boot that sometimes springs a leak.

for a 4-month-old washer, i would certainly hope you pay nothing. F&P appliances come with at least a 2 year warranty. check your user & care guide for warranty information.
