MAH21 Leaking from front of tub
« on: May 29, 2012, 02:35:32 PM »
I hope that soon i will be able to contribute to this forum instead of just taking.  On that note - I need more help.

I am working on another MAH21.  This one leaks from a small hole near the bottom of the tub front.  Nothing visible is amiss.  No leaking hoses, seems to function fine - except for the large leak.  Keeps leaking until the tub is drained.  I have never had a tub out so I am unsure what failure gets water into that part of the tub.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

I would have taken that cover off and looked at the back side of it, part # 22004254

Maybe something rubbed a hole through the back side of it.
Guessing you will have to replace the cover if it's leaking through it.
Hope you find our site helpful.

I've seen this happen to me once before, I personally took the front off and epoxy'd this hole. I believe Maytag used this cover for a number of front end loaders with drain holes, this particular one didn't have a hose connected. It also was worn through on the inside of the tub from coins. I don't see any reason why you can't just plug it or fill it with epoxy, it seemed to work for me with no call backs!
