Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer
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.
