If you google partsselect.com and enter in your washer number then type in front door seal it will give the seal and break down the front door in a schematic that you can see for your self what is involved with putting it in. It will also give you the price.

Maytag 5000 series front load washer wont spin, F11 code


I got my Maytag 5000 in 2009. After about a year started having problems. Of course, I was told warranty wouldn't cover the problem. I googled several things, fixed some issues myself. But this washer has been a piece of junk after a year of use. Front loaders are far from cheap. It will be a long time, if ever, that I buy another Maytag appliance.

Leaks water even small loads want to know how to fix it myself


if this is a front loader check the rubber seal around the drum for a small tear. If it is small enough you may get away with duck tape from the other side of it

My maytag legacy series top load washer sav405deww makes a horrible grinding noise. It also doesn't drain and seems to spin slowly when it decides to even spin. I've replaced the belt and the pulley wheel...


That grinding noise your hearing is most likely the center bearing in a maytag they are usally very easy to break and mainly because when they make maytags they dont put the right type of grease on the bearing itself which causes the machines not to last the 10 years that we all think they could. This repair is honestly not worth the amount of money that it would cost to repair I've seen technicians price this job out between 450 as a low and 600 as a high and considering you can buy a brand new top loader for 2-400 it really isnt worth the effort in trying to resurect the machine. Please also note maytags are notorious for the center bearings disintergrating because of poor factory assembly. Sorry about the bad news. when looking for a new washer if your going with a top loader stick to the whirlpool there easy to fix cheap for parts and last alot longer. Please remember to rank this opinion and if i can answer any further questions please message me back. Thanks again (p.s. on whirlpool make sure if you buy a new one you ask if the drive couple has metal around the shaft dont get the plastic one they let go in two years and then techs charge 180 bucks to repair a 6 dollar part)

Mildew smell


PLEASE KKEP IN MIND THAT THE MAYTAG NEPRUNE FRONT LOAD WASHER IS WHAT GOT MAYTAG IN TROUBLE!!!!!!
Whirlpool bought MAYTAG about 3 year ago.

THe mold is because of the rubber boot in the front of the door. PLEASE check to see if the rubber seal has a small hole in the lower bottom of the seal to let small portions of water drain out. If you DO NOT have this small hole, you need to replace the rubber boot with one that has a hole.
NOW, WORD TO THE WISE and this is what I tell ALL FOLKS that have a FRONTLOAD WASHING MACHINE:
AFTER you washer in the washer LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN so that the washer can ventilate and remove any moisture that is within.
ALSO, every 2 months, get a WHITE CLOTH with WARM WATER and a littl;e bit of BLEACH and CLEAN THE RUBBER BOOT!!!!!!

Front loading washing machines


not really front loaders have top loaders beat all the way but stay away from admiral and maytag .a front loader will wash your clothes using the soap that your top load failed to get out if i may suggest buy a frigidaire with a mechanical timer not electronic control more junk on them more to fail the best combo in my mind is a frigidaire front loader and whirlpool dryer front loaders use 2/3 less water 2/3 less soap and will get your clothes twice as clean they have no transmissions and are direct drive the most common promblems with them is having to clean out the pumps where people leave stuff in their pockets also you need to buy soap thats for front loaders its called high effincey or he soap and they will get your clothes make sure you read the installation guide and remove ALL the shipping braces
