Hi,

The problem is due to the rubber boot is been torn that is causing you the leak. You have to check the rubber boot for leaks by removing the clamp assembly that secures the rubber boot to the outer lip of the door opening. Peel off the rubber boot then inspect it for any holes where it may be leaking. The rubber boot in your washer can be accessed only when you remove the front panel. This requires the removal first of the top panel then the console. Also check your inlet hoses on the outside of machine, also check the connections inside the panel in back.


Thank you !!

Water will not drain, makes a noise when filling, pump does not seem to be froze up.


Three things to inspect are:
  1. Clogged drain hose - cause water to back up to the pump and shut down
  2. Clogged drain tube - usually occurs when the drain hose is attached to a drain tube that empties out into the homes sewer system. Just like a clogged drain, water will back up all the way through the drain hose into the pump and shut down.
  3. Clogged or bad drain pump - Many times, debris left in pockets will work it's way into the drain pump. Over time, enough debris (paper, coins etc) could lodge itself into the pump. When the machine tries to empty or spin out, the pump becomes overwhelmed and shuts down. Sometimes, you may even see a puddle of water appear under the washer due to a clogged pump. This can also happen if the pump itself is worn out and no longer working up to specifications.
Luckily, your drain pump is easily accessible. Placing a towel or blanket down, unplug the machine, disconnect the fill and drain hoses and gently turn the washer forward onto the towel or blanket. Only tools needed are a pair of pliers and a phillip head screwdriver. After removing the drain hose and the screw holding the pump in place, it should easily be removed so you can inspect for debris (a very common problem with F&P washers.
Best of luck with your repair.

EVERYTHING WORKS FINE UNTILL IT GET TOWARDS THE END OF SPIN CYCLE THEN IT STARTS VIBRATING AND WALKING ACROSS THE FLOOR PLEASE HELP ? WE HAVE ALWAYS HAD THIS PROBLEM EVEN AFTER LOWES INSTALLED THE WASHER...


First, make sure the 4 shipping bolts have been removed, and that the machine is level front to back and left to right BOTH! Some machines prefer to be high in the front. VERY IMPORTANT Must have a minimum of clothes & towels, sheets or blankets to wash. DON"T wash 2-5 item loads (small loads)
run machine at least 2/3 full of dry clothes. These machines are built to wash more per load, also because of the many technical parts of the machine, sensors and relays, the machine decides how much water to use not the user! Some "Old Schoolers" have a real issue with the lack of water and unclean clothing... most complaints are user error. Enjoy the new front loading technologies! Cheers! Happy Washing.

Spin vefy fast


A rapid spin cycle is actually a GOOD thing. This is an indication that the gearcase (transmission) and the drive motor are both running strong.

If the washer shudders during the spin cycle the first thing you need to do is check to ensure the washer is properly leveled. The following link explains:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3868923-level_whirlpool_top_loading_washer

The model Whirlpool top loader you have, has an auto-leveler mechanism on the back two legs that can become unlevel periodicailly. You should check the washer level from time to time when it is empty. You need to also make sure the washer is level in ALL directions (front-to-back and side-to-side).

Accidental unbalance problems that can occur from washing blankets, comforters, or heavy loads of towels can also cause the washer to become unlevel and shake. This can also contribute to the level mechanism becoming unbalanced.

Overloading the washer can also cause unbalance problems. Washing blankets or conforters can cause the load weight to shift to one side of the tub. This will result in a tub that shakes violently and bangs against the cabinet. You may have to redistribute the load weight when washing heavy items. This can also occur when washing loads of towels. This is NORMAL as some heavy items do not distribute the weight evenly.

Another problem (which is less common) that can contribute to wash unbalance problems is a weak floor under the washer. If the floor flexes (even the slightest) during the spin cycle, it can cause the washer to bounce or shake. Mobile homes or laundry rooms on the second floor of a home are notorious for having weaker floor structures. This washer has a 35 gallon tub capacity. Coupled with the weight of a wet load and the spinning action, this can put a lot of centrifugal force on a floor.

If you have any questions or concerns, please post back and let me know. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Water leaks out of bottom of machine olny when starting a cycle not during a active wash cycle ONLY WHEN FILLING UP


This can happen when the rubber pipe that connects between the electric tap and the washing tank got disconnected .
Usually it happens after washing fully load machine with towel, blankets etc.
Open the back of the machine and check the rubber pipe, if loose or out of position get it back in to place and tight the metal bands that hold it .

Washing Machine stops and leaks


A Clothes Washer with the complaint "Leaks in Front" (on floor) can be;

Defective Water-Pump (Very common of non-belt models) - Many water-pumps become defective due to the constant wear and misc. items becoming lodged (coins, necklaces, shoe laces, screws, etc.) or breaking the plastic housing or connections. The water pump is fairly simply to replace and is located on the inside front of the machine.

The water pump is typically a white or off white plastic and will have (2) black drain hoses connected; one coming from the tub and the other going to the drain out the back/rear of the machine. Electric pumps with typically of 2 wires going to and connected to the pump. ** Note: When disconnecting and removing the water-pump, becareful of water remaining in tub that may come shooting/flowing out.

Maytag Washer MDE7400AYW goes off balance while spinning about half the time. Walks across room. Springs are OK. Tub seems very easy to move from side to side by hand.


Typically when the drum spins and walks the washer, it is a loading issue.
As the clothes spin, they collect on 1 side, due to cintrifical force acting upon an uneven load.
THis is especially prevalent in loads that are:
1. small,
2. contain lots of towels and
3. anything else that really holds water and is very heavy when wet (like comfortors, pillows)

These will very quickly throw the load off-balance.

When it happens, pull out some of the itmes, and re-load the laundry more evenly around the drum. Be sure to circle the post with towels and sheets, etc.

If you continue to run the machine off-balance for an extended time, the bearings and seals will wear quickly. Unfortunately, you will only know this when the washer begins to leak out under the machine onto the floor.

Hopefully this will fix-ya....if not let me know please!

Washing machine woes


Buy a new machine. You have used it well. After Two repairs I suggest replacements

Since you are not paying for water I would suggest a top loader. I have been Happy with Kenmore (Whirlpool in Kenmore skin) or look at a Speed Queen Top loader.

Dont over load your new machine, learn what it can and cant handle.

Best of Luck T
