Guides are available online to teach users how to replace a Maytag washer seal on do-it-yourself repair websites, such as Do-It-Yourself-Washing-And-Dryer-Help.com. Repair websites typically have a written guide with diagrams or a video with step-by-step instructions.
Online guides are typically separated into sections with information about front-loading and top-loading washing machines. Online guides typically offer replacement parts themselves to fix the problem or provide a link to an online store that carries the parts needed. Guides also typically rate the difficulty of the repair, which can vary between models. A seal failure is commonly identified by a water leak underneath the unit.
