Default Washer leaks and terrible noise at spin cycle..
Model Number: LAT9360AAE   Brand: Maytag   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


This is a Maytag Legacy washer, 8 years old. It started leaking just at the end of 3 years.
so I put a tub to catch the water. I was assuming that the liquid fabric softener(Downy) I was using, has something to do with it. So I stopped using liquid fabric softener(Downy), instead started using dryer sheets. Amazingly the leak stopped in couple of weeks. Recently I restarted using the liquid fabric softener(Downy). The leak came back! I had to remove about 12 quarts of water every load. It has been like that for a few weeks, and now all of a sudden, I have a terrible loud sound when it goes to the spin cycle! (No problem at agitation mode)
Your comments are appreciated.
Thanks.

Lets take these things one at a time, first the leak.
You will need to take the front of the washer off in order
to find it. Take the two front screws off at the bottom
then swing the bottom up so that the top clips release from the
top. You might need a putty knife to help release them from the
top.



Once you have the front off you should be able to see where
the leak is located. Check the dispenser on the top (it may be cracked)
or anything that has a hose attached to it. If you run the washer keep
your hands away from the transmission.

I really don't know what to tell you until its been established
exactly where the leak is at. The front needs to be removed
and you need to inspect the inside while its going through
its cycle. From the description you gave earlier the leak is
large enough that it shouldn't be terribly difficult to spot its
location.

Default leaking Maytag washer Model LAT9360AAE

Well, I opened the front panel. There were no screws, so I did pry open with a flat head screwdriver. I turned the machine on, and found the leak is where the transmission and the tub or drum is connected.
I like to have further help to fix the leak. I have attached a picture for your convenience.
Thanks,
CSkadavil

You need to replace the tub bearing and seal. This is usually accompanied with the replacement of the tub mounting stem, for good measure to assure no leaks after the job is complete. This is a rather involved procedure: a pro can do it in about an hour; and it requires the use of a special spanner wrench. Your decision: My professional opinion is that it is well worth the investment in material and time for the repair. You should get another twenty years of service out of the machine, provided the water damage isn't severe.

Thanks for the pic
I"ll "ditto" what Magician just said.


Your washer is leaking from its main tub seal, through the tub
bering and overtop of the transmission. The tub bearing being
washed out with water would explain the noise you are having
during spin. This is why I wanted to address the two problems
one at a time starting with the leak. This is not going to be an
easy job. It involves taking the top loose, removing the agitator,
removing the inner basket then removing the outer tub before you
you can actually start replacing the parts needed for repair.


As far as the parts are concerned you will need both of these
Part Details - WHIRLPOOL Tub bearing kit, part number: AP4372971

Part Details - WPL Mounting stem repair kit, part number: AP4390013

You will need this spanner wrench to remove and install the new
mounting stem nut. Do not attempt this job without it. Although
whether you want to attempt this job is up to you, it a big one.

I believe there are some instructions that come with at least
one of the parts you ordered. But I don't remember just detailed
they actually are. Here is a service manual. It doesn't cover
you specific model number. However the drive train is the same
and the steps to actually replacing the seals and bearing are
going to be the same. The part that shows this area is in section 3.
