Water heater leaking from bottom

:madhell:I have a maytag series nine electric water heater that is about nine to ten years old. Water is leaking somewhere from the bottom. I need help.

If its leaking from the bottom, and not from a connection or valve somewhere, you probably need a new heater. Take the covers off (with power off!) and see if its leaking from an element. If not, the tank has probably corroded through, and replacement is the only option.
