MVWB950YG Water Leak near Dispenser

5 posts in this topic

Good Morning-

 

I have a Maytag Bravos, pretty new, that is leaking water from what seems to be around the tub ring near the soap dispenser.  It doesn't leak from the water tube, but seems to be coming from the tub ring near the dispenser.  It only leaks when filling through the dispenser. 

 

I adjusted the tub ring, and it was fine for about 2.5 weeks.  Now the customer called and said it is leaking again.

 

Should I try replacing the tub ring, or is this a different issue that someone else has had experience with?

 

Thanks

If the leak is from the left front corner, check and see if the soap dispenser section of the tub ring has "louvers" in it.  If it is smooth than that could be your problem.  

 

Whirlpool had issues with these a few years a go and the Tech Line was sending out the modified tub rings to authorized servicers.

Also look for a leak in the plastic line that feeds the dispenser. I usually pop the top up, let it rest on the clips, and watch with a flashlight while it runs through the diagnostic cycle.

Tech line told me smooth vs the ring with the louvers was an issue with the older machines.  I looked all over both dispensers, and couldn't find any leaks, tech line said to just order bleach, and soap dispensers, so we will see if that does it.

 

Thanks for you help!
