The Maytag washer is leaking on the SPIN cycle, from the bottom of the tub, directly in the middle. It vibrates so bad, the whole house shakes. The maytag repairman says it's an AMANA with the maytag name on it, my luck! Anyway, he says it needs a 'seal kit' but it's been 3 weeks and he hasn't come back to fix it. Says the cost will be about $200.00 Canadian. says the glue for this kit, is a special order??? Any other ideas on how to fix this? model # SAV2555AWW

serial #10692048EA. Thx a bunch!

Parts sometimes become out of stock and have to be ordered in. That can take time. I do hope he isn't just putting you off because he doesn't want to do the repair. Was he a Maytag *factory authorized* service depot?

** Any other ideas on how to fix this? **

If there is a defective part it would have to be replaced. I really don't think you should attempt some makeshift job which might lead to bigger problems down the line. Fix it once and fix it right.

Thx Dan,,,yes the guy is an authorized

Maytag man, however, I cannot believe the freaking glue is special order, he says he has the part, just waiting on the glue. he knew as soon as he saw the washer, the noise it makes, sounds like a 747, he says "it's that model".

It's only 3.5 years old, quite disappointing and i'll never buy another maytag appliance.

Ask him for the part number and see if you can find it available at a different parts supplier.

** i'll never buy another maytag appliance. **

All the new ones will be made by Whirlpool since they now own Maytag.
