the washer puts out a little puddle on every use. investigating, i took out the two pumps and hoses (clamps seemed tight, no breaks in the hoses/rubber parts). i was able to clean some caked lint out of the downspout from the outside drum. i noticed the downspout seems loose - is that normal? could it be leaking from there? the washer seems to hold water after the final drain cycle, was wondering if there could be clogging inside the drums? the service manual on this site (description says for the MAH3000/4000, but manual only lists the 3000) doesn't seem to have enough detail about this assembly. any advice on proceeding from here, perhaps remove the spin basket or is this not necessary?
thanks in advance!
