Maytag Top Loader leaking
I took the front off to get a good look at inside. Bone dry. Why then do I have a small leak after each load of laundry?

Perhaps a hose is not tight? Have you looked at the back? Where is the water?

I changed the hoses. One seemed to be rusted out at the threads. But still leaking. Seems to be from bottom. Small puddles of water after spin cycle.

Did you replace the rubber washer(s) too? They are necessary for a tight seal between hose and washer.

Yes. Hoses are dry. Inside machine is dry. Never looked underneath though.
