I have a Maytag Neptune front loading washer that leaks in the front right corner. I noticed a hole in the flange around the tub and I'm not sure if this is where the water is coming from or not. It seems leak worse when there are less clothes in the washer. Maytag wants to send someone out, but wants to charge me $80 for the trip. Help! Is this a major or minor problem? I have looked under the machine while it is running and a slow drip is in that front right corner. Anyone know the answer?
I just this week have had this problem. There is a whole in the rubber boot around the drain whole in the bottom. I have got the part and am trying to fix it myself. You might try calling your maytag dealer and asking for the part at cost. It's worth the try. They wanted over$80 for the part and over $80 for the call.

Re: Leaking Washer Machine
The right front corner is possibly a low spot where the water is runnung to. Two possible points of the leak are the main door boot could have a tear in it or the drain pump could have a hole. It is possible to look inside of your machine while it is running. First I must warn you to take care and not touch anything inside while there is power to your machine. First open the door and you will see 2 screws on the left and 2 screws on the right sides. one pair of screwws will mount the hinges and the other set goes through a small triangular bit of metal. remove the screws and leave the door in place. The sides of the front panel between the door and edge of the machine will rotate outward slightly and the whole front panel will pull forward. at about 45 degrees the panel can be lifted off of the lower supports and placed out of the way. You will now be able to run the machine and observe exactly where the leak is coming from. Again all of the electrical connections you see are live when the machine is plugged in so do not reach inside of your machine.

If the machine is leaking water not oil than the problem is with the main bushing on the center of the washers drum, It is either broken or worn. Remember when ever water leaks from something it may travel in many different directions before it falls to the floor. So be aware of this principle before you start fixing you will know where to look.
I have the same problem with my washer. The problem just began a few weeks ago. It is splashing out the front left corner of the tub and running down the inside of washer and then leaking out the bottom of the frame. It is just enough water to be annoying. The washer is about 6 years old.
to get a better look at where its cominf from take it apart by removing the screws from around your vdispensor as well as the ones out of the door and the other side . then there is 2 5/16 screws under neath the lid once you remove the front take them out then u can see where its leaking from . odds are its it either your boot or hoses to your valves.
firstly check that the inflow water pipes connected to the machine are connected correctly, feel around the pipes that touch the machine to see if there is any water. If there is the washers may need replacing on the pipe. Or the pipe may simply have got a bit loose through the machines spinning.
check inner gasket for small hole
u can take front off by removing screws from around inside door frame (including hinge screws) the panel will pull out towards u then u might be able to c where its leaking better
