Customer Question

I have a Maytag Neptune washer and it is leaking water from the bottom front. I checked the gray rubber gasket and see no damage. There is a small circular hole at the bottom center of the gasket, could the water be leaking from there?

Well , I checked the inter and outer around the door boot-it seems to be smooth and no damage and the drainage hole seems to be clear? any other suggestions?
Expert:  william replied 8 years ago.
when you say seems to be clear did you poke something down in there? and how old is this unit? thanks

The unit is about 3 years old and yes, I poked a pipe cleaner inside.

did you try a small load at what point in time does it leak? thanks

Customer: replied 8 years ago.

I did not try a small load-just regular size, it begins leaking at the beginning of the cycle, as it it filling.

Expert:  william replied 8 years ago.

i would say that your door boot is shot and need to be replaced would you need help in locating one online?
