Default Maytag washer leaking from bottom
Model Number: LAT9757AAE   Brand: Maytag   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My washer started to leak from the bottom. Doesn't look like any of the external hoses, but not sure what it looks like on the inside. We've always purchased warranty's for all of our appliances, but decided to not renew this time around and sure enough ... something goes wrong. My manual doesn't give instructions on how to take any of the panels off to see what's going on inside. Any idea where I start? How do I open the panels ... where should I look first. We filled up the tub and it starts leaking the moment water starts filling the tub up. Everything else seems to be working fine.

Underneath? There are no screws at the bottom of the front panel. There are 3 screws at the bottom of the side panels on each side.

Yes, I'm positive there are no screws on bottom of front panel ... unless you're referring to underneath the washer ... if so, then I have no idea. So you're saying to take the flat screwdriver and go in between the crack of the top panel and front panel and just push near the end of each corner to unlock these clips? I'm going to try that out.

[quote=revndave;238402]Yep.I'll be here waiting[/quote

I tried that and I think I can feel the clips being pushed down, but the top panel is not lifting up. Is it supposed to lift up easy, because if that's the case than I obviously am not pushing in the clips. For one, I don't think I have the right tools either (butter knife and spatula, since those were the thinnest that would enter in between the cracks) My brother will be coming over today to see if he can help ... so frustrating.
