My Maytag washer (MTW6600BTO)...

My Maytag washer (MTW6600BTO) is leaking out of the bottom - all drain hoses and pumps etc are dry. the water is comong out of the Motor rotor - Could the Rubber Washer on the Agitator Bolt be the problem?

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

Model # MTW6600BTO - I'm unsure of the age, but not ancient...

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

If i can - i have it apart now - the washer looks slightly worn, but doesn't seem terrible

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

I don't think so...

Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

No unfortunately its not the rubber washer on the agitator bolt, that means the tub seal is shot and will have to be replaced along with the bearing, it comes in a kit and takes a special tool to replace. Below is the kit, tool and instructions if you want to do it yourself:

Washer Tub Bearing

Part #: W10435302 - click here for part info at sears

The bearing tool can be rented from the link below:

click here for video showing how to change the seal and bearing

Thank you Joel, I've been busy with other tasks. I did read your response and am thinking i'll have a go at it tomorrow morning - wish me luck?

Thank you for the rating and GOOD LUCK~.... It's not that bad just follow the video and make sure to have that bearing tool and parts on hand and you will be fine, if you have issues without the tub coming out let me know, sometimes you need a car jack and piece of 2X4 for that but in many cases, so just let me know if you need anything and I will be glad to help.

I have a Maytag Bravos XL MVWB750YW0. I am getting the F71 SD error. I have cleaned and inspected all the entire washer the hoses are clear, the drain pump has been replacedm though probably unnecessary. The washer drains properly. We use teh proper HE soap and have done so since we have owned the washer, now 5 yearsish. The washer seems to be getting stuck going into the spin cycle. The agitator moves about a 12th rotation back and forth but never fully engages the spin. Like the Washer is trying over and over to get into spin. I think it is either the the Rotor Position Sensor or the basket gear kit is stripped. There are no burning smells or loud noises. … read more
