SOURCE: Maytag neptune "mold"

  • I have used straight bleach mixed with a little dish detergent (palmolive works best).
  •  the detergent acts like a surfactant to hold the bleach to the surface while killing the mildew.
  •  leave it on for 20-30 minutes then rinse thoroughly with hot water.
  •  it worked for me.

SOURCE: replace tub seal in top load neptune

I‘ll be watching your progress real close with the Tub Seal replacement. I’m going to run this machine into the ground and I’m sure I will develop a Tub Seal leak down the road. I have nothing to offer other then the mention in the SM on page 49 about making sure “”When installing a new seal, make sure the sleeve from the previous seal has been removed and discarded.””. Did you purchase or borrow this tool to remove the spinner nut Spinner Tool $25, or is there another way to remove the Spinner Nut? Good luck. Rich

SOURCE: I need to replace the molding door boot seal on my

you need to first unplug the unit. next you need to remove 4 screws that hold the dispenser lid on. next open the door remove 4 screws. remove the door and the out side panel. next located to the top left and right you will see a bracket with a 5/16 bolt remove them and take the bracket off. next lift the lid. you will have access to the door seal. you will see a spring at the top that is the band that holds the seal to the tub. the front of the seal just peels off. when putting the band and spring back on may be a little tricky. get one side up to the top gett a piece of duct tape and secure it. so that you can properly get the rest of the band on without fighting with it. get some vise grips and pull the spring over and attach to the part that is tapped. let me know if this helps or if you need more instructions.

I have a maytag front load neptune. The door is locked but does not show that it is lock on the panel, it will not wash but will not open either, how can I get the door open?

they seem to have a issue with the doors on theses machines whirlpool owns maytag now
they were sued very bad for theses issue
The older Neptunes, such as the 2000 Stackers, MAH3000, MAH4000 and the MAH5500A series had some issues which I am sure Maytag has corrected these issues in the newer machines...

There are thousands who have been burnt by the door latch wax motor failure. What happens is the machine will stop spinning because the door latch will fail to lock. Deep inside it is caused by the mechanism that locks the door. The wax motor will draw too much current and damage the control board by burning a resistor (R11) and a triac (Q6).

However, if Neptune owners know to replace the door latch wax motor they can prevent the control board failure from happening. Please tell everyone you know about this important fact.

The older Neptune's also have a couple additional issues such as the moldy door boot and the reliability of the motor / motor control board. All three of these issues were involved in the class action lawsuit a couple of years ago. See for more Neptune information.

In addition, I just now started offering a bearing and seal kit for the Neptunes because when the bearings fail Maytag wants you to replace the whole outer tub for a service quote of around $900 or so. Why replace the whole outer tub? Just replace the worn bearings and 12002022 seal... See for the Neptune bearing kit information.

The older Neptunes run great once you take care of some small details...

Black mold on washer door seal

this is a very common problem with the neptune washers.
use a javex and hot water solution and scrub the rubber boot.
you should also do an acid wash. (hot wash with bleach, and no clothes) if there is mold on the boot it is inside the washer as well.

There is a way to prevent this. when the washer is not in use, hang a small towl on the washer door, and do not close the door.
this will allow for air movement in the washer

Front loading maytag washer door won't open. Help!!

Remove the lower front panel.Reach up inside near the latch. Feel for a ring tab. Pull it down firmly while pulling on the door.
Then open the cabinet and check all the wire connections in the latch circuit. Check the wax motor ohms. The wax motor probably needs replacing.

Tub seal repair

If you are talking about the front door boot seal it is not a fun thing to do but to replace the boot you have to remove the front cover by using a putty knife on each side once you have removed the pretty cover you need to remove the front door and the door boot from the door then the front panel 5/16" screws usually the cover usually wont come off all the way so you have to work around it it will come off but you have to finagle around under the top cover to get the screws.once you doo all this you have to pull the old boot from the tub. now going back with it is the fun part the boot locks on to the tub with a locking lip and if it dont lock it will come off while putting spring back on.Once you have the boot locked with the lips you have to put the wire spring into a groove and then put on the spring you you are able to get this far you are doing fine.after putting spring on pull alittle on the boot to make sure it is secure.If it is put front panel back on ,secure boot on the lip to the door and put on pretty cover then leak check.BUT GET READY TO SAY SOME UN GODLY WORD THIS IS NOT A EASY TASK AND IF YOU HAVE NEVER DONE THIS BEFORE PLAN ON A DARN NEAR WHOLE DAY JOB GOOD LUCK and let me know how it goes

Maytag Neptune MAH6700AWW cant find door release

thats a good one, lookin up the service manual, it appears that your particular model has a manual release on hte lower section of hte latch assembly itself, and the only way to gain access to it, is to open the door boot/bellow, but obviously with the door locked that's not going to happen, i would try to gain access from underneath but by the looks of it that to is also closed off (solid bottom). id does show a model with a separate access panel(lower 1/4 of front of machine) however i am to assume that your unit has 1 solid front panel no access to remove.sorry i couldnt have better news. And the "pull" in the dispenser is no tere previous neptune frontloaders not pertaining to your machine at all!

Maytag front loader washing machine. Mould

How old is the washer? Did you try straight bleach on a towel and placed over the "mold" spot for about 5 minutes, be sure to wear gloves. Then scrub with a small brush being careful not to splatter bleach on yourself and rinse well. May need to replace the seal. I always leave the door cracked open after every use to "dry" out the inside and the boot. I also leave the drawer pulled out when not in use for that area to dry out as well. I have never had mold on the door seal of my Neptune washers, only the water holes above the dispenser drawer.
