Re: maytag frontload washer door is leaking
Yes you can do it. the door boot has come off the tub opening. first you will have to push on the door boot (gray rubber)on. There is a grove that slides into the metal opening in the washer. make sure the the door boot (gray rubber)lays flat against the outer opening. then with the spring at the bottom . start at the top put the wire in the rubber grove. until you get the the spring then pull down on the spring and tuck it into the grove.. I hope this helped [lease let me know if you get it... krazytech

Turn off curcuit breaker. Mop up suds and water with towel. Remove kick panel mop up water here and dry out with a fan. Replace Kick Panel. Reset Curcuit breaker. Add one cup of Vingar to bottom of tub. Run a rinse and hold cycle. Repeat if necessary.
there could be 2 things that i know of first one is that someone bended the door to much and the joint's are eather lose or out of place the second thing is that the door sealing rubber is out of place, you need to putt it back to place
Thanks for using FixYa. This may happen due one or more than one of these issues with your washer-- Probably
there is something(coins, socks, dirt, debris, etc) stuck inside the drain
filter of your washer. You'll need to check the drain filter. To access the
drain filter. To check the drain pump follow these steps:
Unplug the washer to completely disconnect electrical power.Remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the first image below.
Also check your drain hose for a kink or clog. Check the washer house drain for a clog or restriction. Test the washer to see if it will drain properly.
This issue can also be due to clogged drain pump or drain filter, due to which the hose have developed leak. This will cause suds

ok id say something is jamming the drain screen remove the lower panel after drain the washer there are two ways to deal with this as there will sill be water in the tub of the washer you can get a hose clamp from the auto parts store for radiators hoses and clamp the tub to pump hose before removing the white dial of the front of the pump or get a shop vac and pull the water out through the drain hose in the standpipe and be sure you use he or low suds detergent if your not already
