Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer stinks like mildew!

Hi -
I bought this washer in fall of 04 and have used HE detergent and have been dilligent about running Lemon Cascade Liquid through a Normal cycle to clean excess buildup (per Maytag repairman's advice!). he told me to do it a couple of times each year...but I have done it every month or so. recently, it has begun to reek of mildew, no matter what i do! i have run bleach thru it, doused the inside with a spray bottle of Tilex, (in order to get into crevices which might have been missed by my other attempts). It still stinks...and now our clothing is starting to stink, too. I know that MYG settled a class-action lawsuit on the Neptune front-loaders for this exact reason, but do we top-loaders have any recourse?? Do you have any suggestions on how to end this problem for good (before i go out & buy another washer)?? thanks!

I understand exactly...never heard of cascade ..the slug is to much what you have to decide which is more cost effective,,having a technician come out and taking tub apart for a manuel cleaning and scrb break down or purchasing new one..but i always tell my customers bleach every other month with hot wash cold rinse,,now i do have one last tip..try CLR..

Maytag FAV6800AWW Top Load Washer installed 7/21/04 lid rusting underneath, tub rusting. What can I do if anything?


The Washer lid and top base and base cabient can be sanded primed and rattle can touch up. You won't have the nice finish.

The tub is fiber glass or some molded plastic so I assume your are speaking about the metal parts ie. lid, washer top base and cabinet.

There are some parts on e-bay from time to time such as 25001117 Lid (white) FAV6800AWW

My Maytag Neptune TL has a moldy smell that I can't seem to get rid of. I've used a steam cleaner to blast away mold I've found around the rim and other parts I can reach, and I've run cycles of just hot...


Take off the round agitators one at a time, by popping off the center cap and use a hex driver to remove the screw. Tilt out aggitator, and clean back of agitator, hyousing and gear box of the moldy/mildew build up..its kinda gross. That is where the stink comes from.
