SOURCE: Leak from maytag top load coin machine during spin drain cycle only

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

Vitto, the fill hose for the tub is located up on top of the tub. Its a push in and I have on occasion see them come out or loose. You are going to have to pop the top to get a look at what is going on. First there will be 4 screws on the dispensor assy. each corner. Remove them and lift the cover. Next will be the door. Remove the hinge screws not from the door, but from the body. On the other side will be 2 spacers, remove them . Now lift the door up and off the washer. The front panel will now pull out and come off the 2 clips on the bottom. You will be able to see the bottom. Now there will be two angle clips on each side holding the top down. Remove the screws, clips and the top will lift up. Now you will be able to place the door back on with out screwing it back on and close it. Start a cycle and now you will be able to observe the top hoses and bottom pump and hoses. Identify where the leak is and put this deal behind you. This is an easy gig, just take your time.

SOURCE: Large leak during wash cycle---Maytag - model LAT9520AAE top load washer

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.

Maytag Washer Model LAT9416AAE - Top tub seal is leaking or where the tub and the shaft meet is leaking. What would the cost be for parts and repair (service fees, labor, etc.)?

The usual charge when i have repaired that is around $375
in addation to the seal a tub bearing would be required since the seal has leaked it very likely has rusted the bearing. To replace those both the inner and outer tub have to come apart,the breakdown would be
Service Fee $75
Labor $100

labor and service fees vary from company to company and that is probably low,yet it is a great washer and may be well worth investing in to repair

Leaking water

When your Maytag top load washing machine leaks water, you will need to check the following parts until you find where the leak is coming from.

The water valve: The first place you need to check is behind the washer. Check the two fill hoses and the water mixing valve.
Check for pinholes or cracks on the plastic body of water mixing valve.

Remove the front panel : The next thing you need to do, is to remove the front panel so you could see the tub and the hoses.
Set the washer on the regular cycle and turn it on so it could start filling.
Use a drop light and check all the hoses under the washer as the washer is filling.
Make sure to keep your hands away from any moving parts.

The pump : If the hoses are ok, check the pump for leaks. When the bearings in the pump wear out, that is when the pump will get noisy and that could cause your Maytag washing machine to leak water.

The stem & seal : Another place that the washer could leak water from, is the stem & seal on the holding tank.
When washer leaks water from the stem & seal, the water will leak down the center of the transmission.
When the stem & seal need to be replace, the tub bearing has to be replace at the same time. This is an expensive repair if you have to pay someone to do it. If you do it yourself it will cost you about $110.

We have a maytag top lod washing machine model

Hi, the actual drain pump may have a crack on the housing. i would inspect this possible issue just to confirm that the pump structure if well.

Secondly, there may be a slight rupture in the tub seal. you will need to disassemble the tub to get a good look at this possible leak point. this is an uncommon area for leakage but, it is possible that the water is leaking from this area.

Last, i would check the water inlet valves for cracks. this is another uncommon issue but, its worth checking during the inspection.

My top load maytag leaks from the bottom during wash cycle

90% chance it's just a loose hose or a bad fitting/clamp. Very cheap and easy to fix. If you like your washer, I'd say either pay to have someone come repair it, or if you are handy (or have a handy friend) give it a try yourself. You'll have to remove the back and find the leak.

Water leaks and spin cycle not working properly

Water leaking from the bottom usually indicates either a bad hose , bad hose connection to the pump or a leaking pump. Also sounds like the machine is not spinning out. Is there water left in the tub at the end of the cycle?
