I had this problem, and according to the repair guy today, it is the control board. Unfortunately the part is around $200. I had a few other things wrong with mine (and it is only 5 1/2 yrs old), and the total parts were going to cost $550. I ended up going out today and buying another washer.....not a maytag. BTW, if you have clothes stuck in the washer, there is an emergency release cord underneath the detergent dispenser. You will need to remove the dispenser and pull it out....it is a neon green color so it is easy to spot. Good luck.
pump is probably clogged not allowing all water to drain out. Should never see water in the tub at the end of a cycle. About once a month you should run your washer through a cycle with hot water and bleach. Doing that should keep the moldy smell down.
if this issue is because you hear water in the machine when the tub spins......
thats normal, its called the balance ring
centrifical force, pushes the water in the lid, outward helping to use the sling weight, as a counter balance
its 100 percent normal to hear sloshing when turning the tub by hand
Once a month toss a cup of Cascade dish detergent in washer and one cup of bleach. Run wash cycle for 5 minutes. Then pause and start again and let go thru entire wash cycle. Never had a mold or any problem with following this maintenance plan.
Make sure it isn't toxic mold. Neptunes are prone to mold. Maybe try to get a sample of the water in it when you run to take and have tested. Also, look closely at the gaskets and brush around the drum, they may have mold on them, like mine do.
replace water valve if its filling while not being used. if u hear the water in the tub but noty seeing it thats normal they water in them always. as far as mold u can buy some affresh its a cleaner for the frontloads
the washer has a low level of water in it at all times. it will never completely drain out unless you pump it. this is one of the reasons there is such a smell with these washers, i use vinegar in rinse cycle and i use bleach once sometimes twice a month to keep mold and mildew smell away.
Had a simular problem. In my unit the water was not visible in the drum but you could hear it when you turned the drum by hand. The answer as told to me by the Maytag repair man: The machine is designed to hold the water after the cycle is complete. As he was replacing the boot seal he suggested to just leave the door open so the seal will dry out and not mold. This has been working for the past several years. No mold has appeared on the new boot seal.
From another source I read that the water is left in the machine for balance.
Hi..I had the same problem yesterday...the maching would start when I pushed the button and then stop..I had to push the button again to get it going..My stacked set is around 8 years old.
Here's what we did..moved the washer away from the water source and unscrewed the water intake lines..there is a little screen there...took the screen out of both hot and cold lines..one screen has some debris in it..the other was almost completely blocked..we are on a well and sometimes dirt..etc..gets in the lines..
Today no problems doing the laundry..its working like new..
