Question Bleach Dispenser Leak
Model Number: A712   Brand: Maytag   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


When bleach is poured into the Maytag A712 Washer Dispenser (front left corner), at some point in the operation cycle it runs down the inside front of the machine and out onto the floor. The machine is 20 years old and has worked perfectly up until this point. The Maytag "Service Manual" I have doesn't mention how to work with the Bleach Dispenser. The triangular "funnel" that you pour the bleach into is NOT cracked or displaced. Any ideas?

Remove the front panel, there should be two screws holding it in place, you'll have to get low to see them, they are sort of hidden under the angle a few inches from the bottom. It's probable that the rubber hose just came disconnected. Reconnect it and add a hose clamp. make sure the hose is still flexible, over time they will get pretty hard and run the risk of breaking.

Hope this helps.

Default Problem Fixed

Thanks for the help. The hose from the "dispenser" (really just a built in funnel) to the bottom of the tub had stretched and come off of the dispenser. I slid it back on and secured it with a small radiator clamp. Interestingly enough, the bottom end of the hose has a factory clamp on it. I guess they figured there would be no leaks at the top!

Again, many thanks.
