Large leak during wash cycle---Maytag - model LAT9520AAE top load washer
I have a Maytag-model LAT9520AAE, but I cannot locate this exact model on the FixYa site. The Maytag-model LAT3600A was the closest one to a match I could find.
I have a large leak coming from somewhere around the drum of the washer during each washer cycle. I have not taken anything apart yet so I cannot tell exactly where the source of the leak is coming from.
What can I do or where do I begin with troubleshooting this problem. Can you let me know in detail, what to remove/disassemble and how to find the source of the leak? Also, what does this sound like? From what I have read it sounds like I may have a faulty basket gasket or a faulty tub seal and bearing. If this is the case, are these parts expensive? This leak has happened on 2 other occasions in the last year, but now it leaks during every wash load cycle.
Thanks for any help,
Re: Large leak during wash cycle---Maytag - model...
Hey guys i guess this is not a uncommon problem. I have a commercial washer about 4 years old that get moderate service at a rental of mine and it is leaking from the tub as well. I hope to fix the problem because the new machines are very expensive.

I know the exact sound you are hearing, I had the same thing several yrs ago on my old Whirlpool. I think it was something with the transmission, but what I needed was no longer available. I found a lot of info by entering the make/model nr in search box at appliancepartspros.com. You could also look atR44U61 RepairClinic.com
My Maytag washer model #:sav515deww is leaking underneath during the spin cycle. I took off the 2 front panels. I have been told taht it is a bearing and a seal that are out. Replacement parts cost approx $90.00. Unit is 5 years old. Is it hard to fix? Thanks
Hi, There are two spring clips located in the gap between the top and front panel. They are the edges. If the pump and hoses aare ok, fill the washer with water and look up toward the center of the tub abd transmission area. It migth have a seal going bad.
Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim
Adrea, sounds like you need a new valve. When it's doing this leaking, unplug the washer. If it's still leaking you know for sure it's the valve. Part number for the model posted is 22002360. Catriver..post back.
