Water leaking onto the floor while washer was filling.

By removing the front panel and raising the top panel, I was able to observe that water was overflowing from a small plastic "cup" that was positioned midway along the inlet lines for water entering the washer tub. None of the adjacent parts were visibly damaged or broken, but the rubber ones were soft and "gummy" to some degree. I ordered the three parts that I was able to identify, based on the photos at PartSelect.com. They arrived ahead of schedule and I was able to install them the same day. The only additional disassembly involved disconnecting the hot and cold water lines, removing the water inlet shield and gaining access to the upstream end of the old rubber hose in order to replace it with the new one.

Water leakage

First I removed the front panel. I then lifted off the top of the washer to gain access to the injector valve and nozzle. Then I unscrewed the retaining clips on the hoses joining the injector valve and nozzle. I separated the hoses from the injector valve/nozzle assembly. I then replaced the injector valve/nozzle assembly with replacement parts and reassenbled.

30 year old washer started to leak on left side

Noticed small pool of water on left side. Diagnosed it was injector tube. Ordered parts.

Removed front panel by removing two phillips screws and then pushed down to disengage spring clips.

Used nutdriver to remover two bolts holding top cover and then undid bleach dispenser hose.

Lifted top cover and removed clamps holding injector and fill. Replaced using 1 1/16" Stainless steel screw clamps.

THIS WAS THE FIRST REPAIR EVER ON THIS WASHER!! SIMPLY AMAZING PERFORMANCE. STILL SPINS AT HIGH RPM AND IS QUIET. Bought for my folks as a gift in 1979.

This is the reason I bought the last Maytag top loaders made in '05. Also had another one 24 years with only one repair.

Parts Select, thank you! Parts arrived in three days.

Leaking washing machine

After reviewing the diagrams and instructions on your site, I unscrewed and removed the cover to the washing machine. I located the source of the leak and replaced the aged parts. I put everything back together and voila, no more leak. Thanks!

Washer was leaking immediately as it started filling.

I removed the front panel and discovered the general area of the leak. Raised the top and found the injector valve had a hole in it. Removed the injector valve by removing the collar closest to the front of the washer. Searched the internet and found the PartSelect website. To my delight, not only was I able to order the part on a 27 year old washing machine, but there was also a 10 minute video on how to replace the part!! Although my wife was not terribly interested, I kept telling her how cool it was that there was a video showing how to replace this part. I think she was hoping this leak meant a new washing machine. Anyway, part replaced following the directions in the video and the old washer is fully functional again. Thanks for the awesome website!!

Minor water leakage visible on floor on left side of washing machine.

I opened up the front panel of the washing machine and noticed that water was leaking from a hose along the top left of the machine. I ordered a new plastic injector nozzle and rubber injector valve. The parts arrived in 2 days. Switchout of the parts took less than 5 minutes. Tested it out; the leak was gone. Total cost $22.62. Money well spent!

Leaking

First removed front to see approximately where the leak was - left side from the front. Parts arrived quickly. Removed top and swung up to the left side (not the back). Video was very helpful at showing how to replace valve and nozzle. The old valve did indeed have a hole in it and the injection had some perished rubber slime. Closed back up. Hit snag - the top loader door latch was not engaging preventing the machine operating. Hmm. Opened up again and with flashlight located sound of buzzing relay (being careful since the machine was powered) Noticed a wire was caught up in the relay. Disconected power. Re-sited wire and used a twist to hold to other wires to keep it out of the way of the relay. Closed back up. Everything fine. So glad to keep my 24 yr old machine going! Amazing that this was the first time it had ever been moved and opened up. Moving and cleaning was be far the longest part of the whole operation. Great site.

Water was leaking from the left side of the washer

I opened up the washer on the front side and then the top side. I pulled out the old rubber injector valve on the left hand side and replaced it with a new one. Simple.

Part had a "blowout" with hole to let water leak

My cousin scavaged the same part from his old Maytag. It is like a rubber sleeve going over the plastic injector nozzle.
The new part is to replace the one my cousin gave me. Note:
the new one has a thicker and stiffer rubber wall. Until he repairs his Maytag, I won't know if the new rubber valve model (that is thicker) will let water through it into the washing machine. To repair, used screwdriver to remove screws at bottom front panel. Then used socket wrench to remove the bolts (on front left and right side) of the washer top. This allow the top to be lifted and tilted back towards the control panel; and then get easy access to the rubber injector valve. Screwdriver to remove clamp and install easily. (I found out it was the valve broken by turning on the machine and watching the water squirt into the air). No leak now (using my cousin's old Maytag rubber valve). The value bought was thicker rubber, probably to prevent the same "blowout" that my old Maytag valve had.
