Maytag Washer LAT2300AAE

I have an LAT2300AAE Maytag top loader washer that has begun to leak water and the agitation seems to come and go (different noises) during the wash cycle.

I have checked the belts, seem to be okay, I have the front panel off and see no real evidence of water leaking from a specific area. I do notice some small amount of water/grease coming from the bottom of the wash tub, evidenced by the splatter marks around the inside of the cabinet, and it hitting my face while watching a cycle. This comes from the seal area where the transmission shaft enters the tub.

The agitation seems to be okay with a small load but as the load increases the agitation tapers off to a slower speed, as the sound the washer, changes. Agian the belts look okay, I don't see clutch dust as I have on other machines in the past.

the water leak would be from the tub seal, you'll have to replace. Not a real DIYer project unless you are very handy, also a few specialty tools required. Slow agitation could be a number of things, not enough pressure on the drive belt, transmission grease may be getting very thick. Maybe time to talk to a repair tech and have them give you an estimate.

Yeah, better off getting a local guy to fix [not rocket science but if not done exactly right-like heart transplants-it'll fail again. pricey repair but there's nothing on the market today-maybe Speed Queen-that compares. if it's not showing any rust this washer can easily go 30 yrs.
