Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
Thanks for your input I thought about doing just what you indicated if I had a top loead washer, however, it is a front load washer and the door locks when the water is in it. Do you think it would hurt the machine and might it eventually empty of the beads if I were to find a away to run it through the rinse cycle repeatedly and then vacuum out any beads that remain in the tub until beads are no more? Trying to find a manual, since I misplaced mine somewhere, to see how to take the washer apart and vaccum it out may have to just call a repair person :(
Should have paid closer attention :-(
It still could float some of them if . . . you allow a partial fill, then pull the plug. One catch; it is possible that you cannot open the door with the plug pulled. It wouldn't be illogical that the maker would want to prevent serious spills in case someone opened the machine during a power outage.
If the beads are the same type of material from which disposable coffee cups are made (=soft) then it may not do any damage at all to the pump since it surely has to handle forgotten tissues and similar. However, because styrofoam is nearly eternal in lifespam when not exposed to UV, I would be a little reluctant to put that much in the sewer system or worse yet, a septic system.
