I found that the water was coming from top of syphon break. Took it out located it on computor , ordered part. Took about 10 min to replace. EASY
Remove the following items: Washer to sink hose (loosen hose clamp and twist hose), two philips screws from bottom of front panel, front panel, upper side bolt screws, tilt up top washer deck and secure, remove 4 syphon break screws from rear of unit, remove pump to syphon break hose, remove old syphon break, install new part and tighten with hose clamp, re-install pump to syphon break hose, re-assemble in reverse order. Check for leaks. Show your wife.
First removed 2 screws(phillips) at bottom of front cover and lifted front to remove. Then removed 2 3/8 screws from under top cover and lifted cover and slid forward to exposed Syphon Break. After running briefly on spin, it was easy to see where the leak was. Syphon break was installed in 5 minutes by removing both hoses and 4 hex screws and reinstalling. Part arrived as promised in 3 days. I was very pleased with the whole experience.
One of the drain hose clamp broke (on Halloween night). After cleaning up the flood in the house (talk about a house of horrors). I removed the front panel of the washer and also discovered a mouse living in the washer on a stockpile of cat food. I also discovered that the MAYTAG washer that I bought used from a local appliance vendor did not have the correct SIPHON assembly for the drain hose thanks to PARTS SELECT. I ordered the SIPHON CONNECTOR, SIPHON BREAK ELBOW and I needed a new lid HANDLE and I discovered the CYLINDER LIGHT BULB was out. I could have gotten the CYLINDER LIGHT BULB at a local store much cheaper. The lid HANDLE was plastic and was way over priced - it looked like metal but it was plastic. However, the Siphon Break Elbow Kit and Connector were easy to install. You remove the front enclosure panel by removing 4 self-tapping screws at the bottom. You remove 2 sheet metal screws that hold the top enclosure panel on (in rear) and lift that cover up about five inches (prop it open really). (Which is where I also found a mouse nest which I also removed.)I clamped a hose to the SIPHON CONNECTOR from the inside. PUT THE RUBBER GASKET INTO THE SIPHON CONNECTOR. SEAT THE SIPHON ELBOW INTO THE SIPHON CONNECTOR. FEED THE ELBOW into a precut hole on the back panel (from the inside). Then use 4 self-tapping screws (purchased separately at the local hardware store) through the precut holes into the SIPHON CONNECTOR from the outside/back. Attach the additional hose (that goes to the drain) with the hose clamp. It actually took me longer than an hour for the whole project because I had to clean up after the mouse. Oh! And I caught the mouse the next day with a mouse trap by the frig. It'S like a brand new washer.
