Question about Maytag MAH6500 Neptune Front Loading Washer w/Built in Water Heater
Stop ,How I fix it?
Check for low water pressure. Clear screens in inlet valve. Do-not remove screens. This unit will turn off if not filled in specified time.

two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news

SOURCE: water keeps going and overflows
Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly
You will have to open the top panel for steps below
Water level control is handled by the water level pressure switch inside the top panel. It is about 3.25 inches in diameter, has 3 wires connected to it and a hose that looks like a small vacuum line.
Check that vacuum looking line for any holes, kinks or disconnects.
You will need about 3 feet of the same knid of line available from any autoparts store for this test.
Remove the machine side hose and connect the 3 ft hose you just obtained. DO NOT drop the machine hose into the machine.
Place the timer on the wash cycle and start the cycle
Result = fill
Force air into the hose orally until you hear a click.
Result = fill stop agitation begin
If it does not pass this test then the pressure switch is bad.
If water never stops flowing the water inlet valve has debris internally and will probably have to be replaced.
Don't forget to reconnect the machine side hose to the pressure switch.
Thanks for using FixYa!
Then remove the vacuum

The problem is simple and easy to fix. Your washer has a tubing which runs from the base of the tub to the water pressure switch. It might have vibrated loose from the switch, or their can be some sediment in the tub. Blow out the tubing and reattach it securely to the switch and pump out the water in the tub. Then try it again. I wrote an article about this:
