    Clothes look like they just came out of the hamper. The water pressure is the same as it has always been and this problem just started. It is also a lot louder than it use to be.

My maytag neptune spins water out, the tub is empty but when you turn the tub manually you can hear water sloshing and the clothes smells moldy after washing


There will always be some residual water left in the outer tub after draining. This is normal for most washers. Purchase a container of Oxy-clean and cycle the washer a few times using hot water settings with a half-cup of Oxy-clean added to each cycle. This will help remove any organic matter left behind that might be causing odors.

My washer tangles up my clothes. I swear someone goes downstairs and ties the clothes up. They are always a tangled mess thats hard to pull apart when they are wet! Help!!!


Make sure you are not over filling the washer, when my mother in-law does the laundry, it ends in a tangled mess. However when I wash them, no problem I shake the clothes out before I put them in and I try not to overload the washer.

Model MAH5500BWW Why after I am all done with the wash and have everything unloaded can I hear water below the tub when I turn the tub manually? This is at all times.


This is not water that you hear. It is a form of liquid ballast that stabilizes the drum and counterbalances the weight of the clothes when the machine spins the clothes dry.

My machine seems to skip the spin cycle.we have replaced the dial and its still not working.


What you have is a worn thrust bearing, a common failure on these machines. When the motor reverses for spin, the cam actuator on the main drive pulley release the brake which is holding the tub still for agitation. If the tub was allowed to move freely during the wash cycle the clothes would end up knotted, tangled, and not too nice. Whilst the motor is turning in the direction of agitate the water remains in the washer. For spin, the motor comes to a screeching halt, and starts in the opposite direction, this makes the pump discharge the water and the tub begin to spin,that is IF the brake gets released. I found the most marvelous repair pictorial on replacing one of these HERE

Neptune FAV6800aww Will not go into spin


I just did a repair on my FAV6800AAW by lubricating the needle bearings in the clutch pulley hub, the tub displacement sensor checked OK per the service manual check. I was getting dc/uc errors in the spin cycle, washer was purchased in 7/05. I have basic mechanical skills and used a socket wrench to remove clutch pulley hub, just follow the service manual removal steps to remove clutch pulley hub. Pull the plastic cover off the clutch pulley hub and inspect the spring, clean/lube needle bearings and the clutch hub coupler that drives spinner shaft. I used WD40 I may need to re-lube down the road with a good light grease. It took a few tries for me to get the clutch pulley hub to stay on after re-install and power up, getting the clutch pulley seated properly is the trick. I did not remove the washer tub for this fix, I just leaned the washer back to get a better reach angle, it is a tight work area. I did not want to junk 3.5 yr old $1k machine with out trying a fix. If you want to work on this model get the service manual, I found it online and I believe you can order it in PDF format from Maytag. Good luck!
I just went thru my 10th load of a mix of light, medium and heavy loads and all work fine no unbalance errors (DC/UC). Doesn’t fix the tangle problem :) Prior to this fix I could only run the washer with no clothes in it to complete a cycle with no dc/uc error codes.
