First check under or bottom back of the unit to see the drain hose from the tub , then disconnect the hose from the tub and pull the hair , lint ,ect... that you can
if that don't make it drain better the the front will have to come off , but also if the pump motor is getting weak it may need to be replaced

How do I unlock the door on the maytag maxima front load washer


Jay, if you're sure there is no water in the drum, unplug the machine and pull it away from the wall enough that you can unfasten the two screws in the upper corners of the back (they are likely T-20 screws). When these screws are removed, you can pull the top of the cabinet back and lift it off the machine.

Once the top is removed (and making sure the machine is unplugged), you can look down the right front and see the door lock mechanism. On that part, you should see a round plastic ring. Pulling that ring will manually release the door lock.

What is the easiest way to get the front panel off of my LG front load washer to replace the large rubber drum gasket which ripped? Is it screwed on or pressure fit?


It can be changed out without removing the front panel. There are special tools designed to remove and re-install the spring clamps which hold the gasket on, but you can do it with long nose pliers or other implements. It is more difficult to do with the panel on, but it can be done. If you want to remove the front panel: Remove bottom screws from plastic parts on the back edge of the washer top. Stand in front of machine and use the palms of your hands to sparply push back the washer's top about 2 inches, then lift it off. Remove screws from support frame to control panel. Remove dispenser drawer by opening it and pushing the tab on the top back side down while pulling the dispenser the remaining way out. Remove screws from behind dispenser drawer. Release tabs along the top edge of the control panel (watch out for sharp edges) and swing the control panel up on top of the washer drum. Remove spring clamp from front of rubber door gasket. Open access door panel on lower left of front panel. Use small hose to drain out remaining water. Remove phillips head screw in recess, then use plastic putty knife to push inward on the left or right edge of rectangular housing around the recess to remove recess. Remove screws at bottom from bottom of front panel into frame (located behind plastic recess) Remove screws along top edge of front panel. Tilt front panel forward and unplug door switch. Set front panel to the side.

How do i remove the drum on a maytag top-loading washer.MAV 7000aww


If you want to remove the drum of your maytag wahser follow this procedure:
  1. Disconnect the power supply to the Maytag dryer by unplugging it from the wall outlet.
  2. Use a screwdriver to remove the three screws located at the top of the control console.
  3. Pull the control console forward to release the tabs that hold it to the Maytag dryer top. Maneuver the control panel out of your way without disconnecting any wires.
  4. Use a putty knife inserted between the top and front panel to disengage the retaining clips that secure the top panel of the Maytag dryer. Lift the top panel up, and remove it from the dryer.
  5. Use needle nose pliers to remove the wires from the door switch terminals. The door switch is located just inside the front right corner. Grasp the wire leads with the pliers and pull them off the terminals.
  6. Use a screwdriver to remove the retaining screws that hold the front and side panels together on the Maytag dryer. Lift the front panel up and out of the work area.
  7. Use a screwdriver to remove the Maytag dryer drum light lens screw. Press the locking tabs on the light socket, and remove it from the cavity of the drum.
  8. Use a socket wrench to remove the four retaining bolts that secure the drum bulkhead to the sides of the Maytag dryer.
  9. Reach your hand beside the drum and the motor, and push the idler pulley forward to release tension on the belt. Make notes of how the belt is routed on the pulleys, and then remove the belt from the motor pulley and idler pulley.
  10. Grab the belt with one hand, and the Maytag dryer drum with the other. Pull the drum out of the front of the dryer.

Hi looks my Maytag Neptune needs to have the front boot replaced


It is not too difficult to replace the boot. You have to remove the door (remove the screws that go into the door frame, not the door itself, and tilt the door out). Remove the screws on the opposite side of the door frame and remove the front panel (this will hinge on the bottom). From there, remove the soap dispenser bezel (4 phillips screws) and the two brackets (5/16" nutdriver) that are located in the front, just under the top. Now the top will tilt up. The boot will be pressed into the white plastic boot bezel (tongue and groove style) this needs to be pulled away from the bezel at this point. Now, remove the (4) 5/16" screws that hold the boot bezel in place and put aside. There is a wire ring with a spring that holds the boot to the drum, carefully roll the ring off the boot, it may snap on you so be careful. Pull old boot off and replace with new. Make sure to align the new boot with the indicators on the drum. *****NOTE!!! A bad boot is often an indicator of other part failures, most common of these are the shocks/struts that are under the drum assembly. If these are bad, your new boot will go bad quickly.*******
