Hi, and happy new year !!!!

 

The water is leaking from the inner tub, Maytag has had problems with this, the part number needed for the repair is 21002237 , however it requires special tools for the installation as the complete tub and transmission has to be removed, you can order the parts for this repair at http://www.apwagner.com/ however without the special tools you will not be able to install this properly. You are best to call a service company for the repair and the cost including parts will be around $230.00 however this upgraded kit will last for a long time, I have also had customers call 1-800-4MAYTAG and complain about this and they have covered the repair many times for them, however I cannot gaurentee it.

No warranty coverage but MAYTAG is known for making concessions to thier customers to keep them happy! GOOD LUCK,
