Maytag LA882 - Leak from top

Sporatically our Maytag washer will leak water from the top back left.  Water will pour from the bottom of the washer and from seam of the side and top panel.  It happens maybe once a month.

I suspect the water is coming from a plastic (clear square) piece on the inlet hose(see picture).  Is this a broken piece or some kind of a check valve? What can I do to fix the problem?

    Update, I fixed the problem by replacing valve. Not sure why there is a need for the valve or why the old one was causing a problem, but have not had a problem since replacing.

First plug off the wall. Open up the top by unscrewing screws at the back of machine or wherever. Check out the tubes........

You have 3 areas to check. Drain hose, water pump and hot/cold water valves. Any of those 3 areas can be the cause. Most often leaks are caused by loose hoses, but neptunes use a plastic water pump that can clog and lose bearing water seals as well. Try the easy options first, then if those solutions don't point to the cause, remove the front cover and check the water pump for moisture.

Water pours from bottom of tub as soon as water goes in.

Common cause is leak in drain hose as hose outlet must be above water level and if damaged water will run out straight away ( syphon ) but tip it up ( carefully ) and check
Please - Please be carefull as water and electric are not friends

Maytag top load washing machine leaking water from bottom

The machine is leaking water from the bottom, I think the leak is in the area near where the motor is mounted. Before we noticed the water comes from underneath the washer, we smelled like burning rubber.

My daughters maytag has water leaking from the bottom.

Check the easy stuff first, fill hoses tight?- drain hose cracked?
Failing those checks, cut a piece of cardboard slightly smaller than the size of your washer. Slip the cardboard under the washer and run a short load. Look carefully at the water mark on the cardboard. The mark on the cardboard the water leak will leave, will help you tell from which side or front to back the leak is common from. This will help point you in the correct direction to look for the trouble maker.

Washer leaking water on floor

Need to check drain pump and its hose connections. If its not from the drum seal then that's usually where the leaks occur.
