Question about Maytag Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have purchased a Neptune MAH 8700A frontload washer. After having the machine replaced once for poor housing and rattling problems ( sounded like a screeching disater and like it was going to fall apart) we now have a constant mold or mildow odor problem. I have to keep the ddor open constatnly wiht a fan running and washing it out with bleach etc and yet the odor never leaves. IT makes the entire down stairs of my home STINK! Not to mention the fowel odor in all my clothing and towels. I wash this machine regularly and it does not help. What is the answer short of throwing this in with the garbage which is where this overly expensive piece of **** washing machine belongs

There was a class action lawsuit against the original Neptunes, and that door boot was the main issue. Well it's too late to get in on that, and short of just replacing the boot repeatedly, try sprinkling Oxi-Clean powder into the boot lining, the hydrogen peroxide in the powder works well.

Moldy door ring Maytag Neptune Frontloader & poor cleaning

This is an extremely annoying problem and a very effective solution is baking soda! You should place around 200 grams of baking soda into the empty drum and then run a full cycle hot or boil wash.

This is a very effective method of reducing and preventing mold in a w/machine. I would recommend you run this "maintenance" wash once per month to prevent further build up of mold in the machine.

You can purchase a replacement door ring if the mold is extremely stubborn. However the Baking Soda also has the effect of neutralising any residue and odour that may be associated with it.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Thank You.

I have a neptune MAH-1 washer, the door locked

if you remove the back console, youll be able to see the "machine controlboard". appro. ha;f way down and favoring the left side of circuit board youll notice a small blue relay cover(MAYBE 3/8"X1/2" in size. well just above that relay cover you see a resistor that will be physically burnt out( a real noticable burn ring around it) if this is the case you need to replace the board as well as the "wax motor" within the latch assy.

does it sound like a 747 about to crash in your house? if so you might as well through your washer away because you have a bad bearing and the cost to repair that is about the same for a new one. let me know if this helps

My Neptune washer MAH9700

I have a Maytag Neptune MAH 9700. It died one day and the door remained locked. I am guessing the circuit board is fried so it's a good thing I purchased a five year extended warranty. The problem though, is that my 2 year olds BLANKY was in there and she won't go to bed without it. Can't wait 2 weeks for the repair guy. I was able to remove the top and (after I unplugged it of course) get my hand to the bottom of the switch housing. Seems there is a small opening at the bottom. I pressed up with my finger and was able to get the door opened. Whew!!! Hope this helps. ; )
