:cuss: After fighting with the damn dryer for 2 weeks, today the washer craps out on me and starts leaking from down under.

WTF ?

I'm pretty laid back and chalk it up as just one of those things, but today, I went off. Kicking, screaming, throwing shit in my way as there was water everywhere.

OK, Planeteers appliance men, what do I look for on this one. These last 2 repair bills have cleaned my funds out, I need to repair this one myself if I can.

It's a Maytag....... heavy duty model.

Sounds like it's time to start turning clothes inside out.

Ya know, I threw a fit about this last week after replacing the wheel fan on the dryer blower .

This ? Bad timing,maybe ? They were both bought at the same time. What causes them to start leaking from inside the unit , none of the hoses or the drain hose was leaking.

Likely the Seal around tranny.... If you know a fix it man The seals/parts are cheap since it just started leaking.....

Maybe better with labor to replace unit...Welcome to throw away America.

Water pump ? Any chance it's like a car water pump, starts leaking before it goes out allthe way ?

Sounds like it may be a bad johnson rod.

Maytag has the worst line of appliances on the market.

I'm glad I don't work for that God awful company anymore.

I'm guessing it's the flow regulator on the Heizenburg manifold.
