Also known as Door Diaphragm or Bellow. This part is used to keep the clothes inside the tub during the wash cycle. The folds in the bellow allow the tub to move separately from the door during the spin cycle.

I've found water on the floor the last two loads I've run. The washer seems to be operating fine but, water on the floor is not normal. I'm looking for a website that will tell me how to access the drain pump/line but, haven't found one. Does one access it from the front or rear of the machine?
For model number NFW7200TW10

Washer cycles extremely long time and often displays NF on front panel.
Machine beeps and we press selector button to resume washing cycle ?????
For model number NFW7200TW10
Hello Harvey, thank you for contacting us. The code NF means no fill. We believe your washer takes a long time to finish the cycle because it takes longer to fill with water. The issue could be due to low water pressure due to clogs in the water supply line or the water inlet valve. Remove any clog if found in the water supply line. If the supply line is okay, the issue could be due to a faulty hot inlet valve, part number PS11741538, and cold inlet valve, part number PS11741539, or a pressure switch, part number PS11741566, which may need to be replaced. A faulty pressure switch does not open the inlet valve and does not start the wash cycle. We hope this solves your problem!
1. remove the three screws from the top backside of the top panel 2. push the top panel to the rear 1/8 to 1/4 inch 3. lift/rotate top panel from rear to front, set aside. 4. remove the three wire connectors from latch. 5. use #15 Torx to remove the three screws from the latch. 6. remove and replace part using top opening. 7. reverse order to finish.
First I unplugged the washer and removed the back cover plate of the washer. I drained the pump and drainage lines. I then removed the two hose clamps and removed the connecting hoses. I removed the electrical connection. I loosened the three mounting bolts holding the mounting plate holding the pump. Once out, I could remove the pump from the plate and replaced it with the new part. I remounted the mounting plate, attached the hoses and clamps. I reattached the electrical connection and the back plate to the washer.
The Maytag is well designed and the parts are easy to reach. At least from this experience, the machine was designed with efficient repairs in mind. This is a sign of a well made machine.
I bought a new door lock for 132 dollars (item number PS2037196).
Ultimately you have to get to the inside of the machine where the door lock is located in order to see if you will need this door lock that I bought.
DISCONNECT POWER FROM MACHINE.
First take off the top by taking off the 2 screws on the back of the machine.
Second take off the control panel, I believe there are about 5 or 6 screws for that. (there's also a screw when you open up the detergent compartment on the bottom left- also, a lever must be pushed in order for the compartment to come off- it MUST be taken off).
Third unscrew the top of the front white plate.. there should be a 5 or 6 screws for that. You don't need to take off the entire front plate.
Finally unscrew 3 screws that hold the door lock in place .. make sure your hands is in the machine- the back of door lock to catch the lock when you're on the last screw.
Gently take out the door lock from the side with the cables attached by holding the white metal door open (it bends).
Try to pull on the bottom of the door lock (its a manual release). If it doesn't release you need to buy a new door lock like I did... if it does release then you don't need a door lock and just reassemble. (Note: You can also try plugging in the machine and THEN pulling down on the manual release. When I tried this the door lock just vibrated and nothing happened so I bought a new door lock.)
If you have the new door lock continue here:
Take out all 3 cables on the old door lock by pressing on the corresponding clips.
Attach the new door lock with the correct cables. Assemble machine back together.
