I must say you have a GREAT machine, this was one of Maytag's best made. The unit can be repaired, however it will requires special tools and quite a bit of money to do it.. Most likely the tub seal has gone out in it, It does come with instructions to do it. you can click on the blue link below to order the correct part for your washing machine.

I am going to try and fix it myself. I have been away disconnecting the water lines and placing the machine on it's back. While I am at this I need to replace the water hoses. I was thinking braided cable hoses. Do you know if I can get a braided hose for the discharge also? I would also like to see a repair manual so that I can look at the schematics.
The washing machine is leaking from the front right hand corner when I took the front cover off, the line from the bottom of the tub to the white sealed plastic thing was wet. Could this be the problem? If so how do I fix it?
I have a photo, but I am having a hard time uploading it. Help please?
See it this helps.
I think I may need to replace to hose leading to the drain pump also. Would you please suggest all the replacement parts that I should get including hot and cold water hoses, discharge hose and drain pump.
