Question about Maytag MAH2400A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

When I start my washer it starts to leak. pretty bad. It is not the connection points. It appears to me that the tears that are in the grey gasket/seal that is in the front of the washer has some holes and tears in it. Is this common? Is it something I need to replace entirely? kara

If the seal is torn, it will have to be replaced if you want to stop the leaking.

SOURCE: leaking water from underneath.

sounds like several problems. sounds like your boot stem/ seal is leaking and possibly the tub bearing is rusted. I generally replace both at the same time as long as the machine is apart anyway. As for the squealing and tub slamming to a stop, that is your brake package and bearing have dried and/or rusted and need to be replaced

SOURCE: water leaking from front door

The whole boot whould have to be replaced. Check if there are any visible cuts or if its somewhat worn around the lip. But i would change it out. I dont know of a quick fix that would work....

If you can get to it you can use an epoxy made for metal or something like jb weld to patch the holes.

SOURCE: Maytag washer MAH6500 leak - door boot issue?

there is a drain hole at the very bottom of the sump
about 1/4 in
if you ahve any other holes you will need a new boot
there is no real way to patch them, most patches will not flex enough to stay in place
ive included the part number you can order from sears
22003070
the best way to get one over on sears is to order it
then you cazn either fix it kinda hard but id walk you through it
or when the part arrives shedule service, just tell them its leaking

only when the tech gets there tell them you have a boot
sears hates self diagnostics and you will go to the bottom of the list

I have a HotPoint washing machine, and it is leaking water bad. It leaks whenever the spin cycle starts, and the washing machine shakes pretty bad in that cycle. It's my ex girlfriends washing


The leaking could be coming from the exit port on the washing machine. Check the hoses leading from the washer to the drainage port in the wall. As for the shaking, check that the level adjustments at the bottom of the machine are level.

Leaking water under front edge of machine?


Open the door and gently pull on the grey rubber gasket and check all around it for holes / tears. There are three tiny holes in the 'wall' at the bottom that are supposed to be there, but you should not see any other tears. I just found a large tear on mine that causes leaks when I run very large loads. I am going to try to fix it with Gorilla Tape, otherwise I will probably have to buy the whole new gasket. It seems like it would be a real pain to replace!

Front door is leaking..I think there is gunk under the grey seal..can that be taken off and cleaned or anything?


If the door glass and the door seal are making proper contact there should not be a problem..The smallest gap, split or tear will let water out. A leaking door seal usually needs to be replaced by a tech....Nomess

Water leaking from below the tub. THe right shock


Yes it is the O-Ring part number 134146100 that is failing. I just had this happen on my washer. It involves a significant tear down of the machine. I have the service manual that I found on the internet showing how to tear it down. I am pretty sure I found it here on this site in fact.

What causes the tears in the bellow seals on front loaded washers


It’s caused by gradual wear and tear through the vibration of the machine and rotation of the drum. If they are breaking down too often then it may be that your washing detergent mix or use of bleach or how you clean the bellows is weakening the rubber. Also excessive and heavy loads put more stress on the drum and can cause the drum to lurch dramatically from side to side which will end up in causing the bellows to wear / tear.

I have a kenmore washer that is leaking bad underneath in the front making puddles of water. Im constantly keeping towels down everytime I wash a load. Could you please tell me what might be wrong? Thank...


Check the front door boot first. Make sure that there are no tears in it.

Remove the back of the washer, start a fill cycle and observe outer tub sections and hoses for leaks. This is a good place to start.

Water Leakage Under Front Load Washer


most likley cause of your problem is the grey bellows has a tear in it. Inspect the bellows to check for tears. Or you can remove the lower panel and run the washer and look for the leak that way. Im sure it is a tear in the belows. Not a diffacult part to replace if you are mechanicly inclined. Good luck.
