Maytag washer discharge pump was leaking through several pinholes in the pump body.
Repair & Advice
I was very surprised to find the discharge pump on my Maytag washer with over 5 pinholes in the body. The repair was very straight forward. Unplug washer, undo water supply/discharge hoses, remove back, place washer on front. Undo 2 hose clamps, 1 power connector and 3 screws to remove pump. New pump came with a shield that was not part of original design. warnings are very explicit about what can happen if you don't use it. Use it. Install was the reverse and job was done in well under 30 minutes.
I also want to say that the price was way cheaper than other web retailers. I made the mistake to use another retailer for a new motor and overpaid by about $60.
Stick with PARTSDR.

At first the washer was having trouble draining all the way. it then started leaking during the spin cycle.
Pliers and a drill/driver. A regular screwdriver will work as well
Repair & Advice
After watching a youtube video 2 times to make sure I had it down, i attempted the repair. SUCCESS!!! it took about 20 min. from laying down the machine to putting it back upright. The hardest part was figuring out which way the new heat shield goes. I had taken the back off of the washer when it was first having problems to try to see what was wrong. That turned out to be helpful because of 2 reasons. Even though the videos showed that you can do this by just accessing it from the bottom, having the back off made it easier to try to grasp and maneuver the clasps that had to be slid to release the hoses, and secondly...unlike the video where the guy was in a nice bright filming studio with all the light he needed, I was in my basement where my machine is, didn't have much light. Having the back open gave more light to the whole area.
