Washer was leaking from the siphon break. A little difficult to find, as the water would ru down the drain tube & make you think that the leak was elsewhere.

I removed 2 screws at the bottom front corner of the washer. Then lifted the front panel upwards about 45 degrees, which allows the front panel to be removed.
I then removed one small lag bolt from under each front corner (with a nut driver), which hold the top to the frame.
I was now able to swing the top up to have access to the siphon break.
I then removed the drain hose from the rear of the machine where it is attached to the nipple end of the siphon break, by loosening the hose clamp. Still at the rear, the nipple end of the siphon break is attached with 4 mini lag bolts, Which go through the back plate & hold the siphon break to the inside of the washer. I removed the bolts with a nut driver.
The nipple end now fell away. You must save it, as the siphon break does not come with a new nipple end.from the siphon break. Maytag attaches it with an iron band, as they must think that this repair will never be done! I cut the band with the Dremel, being very careful not to cut the hose.
I pulled the siphon break free from the hose.
The installation is a reversal of the removal, starting with inserting the siphon break in the inner hose, clamping the hose with the supplied hose clamp.
I the removed the inner drain hose

Washing machine leaking

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.

Rusty hose clamp broke; discovered I needed a siphon assembly

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.
