I have a Maytag...

I have a Maytag washer front loader that the water does not drain from the rubber canal in the front of the washer.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

The model is MODV7000Awo

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I look at the trouble shooter & could not find much help. I washed a load of towels this am & it sounded like it was rocking back & forth a bit.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Other than I put a towel in the front of the canal to soak up the water.

There are drain hole that go into the tub from that canal that are clogged. Use a pipe cleaner or a toothpick to push them open and flush with clean water. Let me know if you have any trouble. Was this helpful? Dave

Dave thank you for assisting me w/this problem. If I cannot get this to work, I will probably call for Maytag assistance. I love my Maytag washer & dryer & I hated to see there were problems with it. I clean both of them after every use. I was not aware of these holes in the canal. Thank you again. Carolyn W Norman&

Carolyn, I understand if you can't do this but it is not difficult and you should try. This is a front load Maytag? The model number you gave has something wrong. I recently did this on my washer. I used a wire but you need to be careful not to damage the rubber. Best wishes.
