If you hear water when you spin the basket,that is the front tub balance ring.it is filled halfway with water in order to assist mach in balancing load.that is a normal sound.the mach may also leave some water between the basket and outer shell depending on lengh of drain hose.as long as the clothes do not come in contact with the water it is fine.

Yes there will be some water left in the tub but it should be below the basket where you can hear it if you rotate the basket but you shouldn't see it.

Water leaking from my Maytag Neptune model FAV6800AWW Serial number 15646382GA Leaks during wash cycle imediately and during complete cycle. Enough water to saturate 2-3 towels and clothes come out...


Could be a Tub Seal leak my 1st choice. Could also be a leak caused by a cracked outer tub, issues from the hoses from the drain line connections to the drain pump, drain pump and or drain line.

Are you going to try to DIY the fix?

My maytag neptune tl leaks from the bottom while it washes MODEL #FAV6800AWW it leak about two to three cups of water for each load,about one drop per second.


Possible Tub Seal leak, leak from Outer Tub, Sump Cap, Drain Pump, Drain Line.

You need to pull the front cover off the machine and ID the leak source. If there wash water over the Clutch Pulley I would suspect a Tub Seal issue.

You can't link to the Service Manual form this site.

Google Maytag Neptune load unbalance and see if you can find support for the Service Manual.

Neptune - has Lr displayed where time remaining for wash usually displays. Doesn't finish.


Hello there
The LR error on your non-spinning Maytag Neptune is usually, though not always, accompanied either by a burn spot or a blown fuse on the Motor Control Board.

WATER STANDING IN THE DRUM AFTER WASH CYCLE


can you see water in the tub, or do you hear water when you turn the tub? if you hear water when the tub turns, it is not water. the stainless drum has a liquid inside it for balancing loads. if this is the case, there is no problem. but if you see water in the tub that didnt drain, you need to check the pump and the hose from the pump to the outer tub. look for restrictions (coins, tooth pick, nail, ect.). also check the pump impellers to make sure none of them are broke, there are three plastic impellers. if any are broke, replace the pump. hope this helps you. let me know if you have any further questions. shane

    My Maytag washer has a defect, technican told me, that lets water get between the tub and outer lining and sit there and stagnate smelling terrible.


    The water always goes from the tub to the outer shell, that is where the pump connects. Put a little bleach in the tub with some water, shake the agitator side to side to move the drum enough to circulate the bleach around the tub. Then pump the water out and then lower the hose down to a bucket to get the last of the water out. Feel around between the inner and outer drums for anything that has jumped out of the inner tub to the outer drum. You should be able to push the inner drum aside enough to get your arm in. You may have to open the top to get your arm in the space.

    If the tub seal lets go water will weep into the tub bearing. This will rust the basket shaft and normally wreck the tub bearing. Once the bearings starts to get worn enough it usually gets very noisy. The tub bearing is pressed onto the outer back half of the tub shell assembly. Normally need to replace the inner basket/shaft assembly and the outer shell with the tub bearing.

    This is actually normal. It is normal to have water between the wash basket (stainless steel tub) and the outer wash tub (plastic). There shouldn't be a problem unless the water is excessive enough to pool inside the wash tub itself or overflow onto the floor. You will always find a small amount of residual water between the tubs. Don't waste your money on a service call unless you absolutely have to.
