    My machine wouldn't stop spinning, even when pushing in the button. I unplugged it, but when you plug it back in, it's making a humming noise.

I have a maytag neptune washer top load the washer stays in wash cycle and will not go to next cycle.

Clean out the pump. Ours was doing that as well, when our mechanic looked at it he could find nothing wrong with it so he looked at the pump and it was full of mud and junk. He said once it is cleaned out you have to run it twice a month empty to keep it clean. Ours has worked great since.

1 Answer Whilpool Duet washer keeps giving a SUD and F02 error. Now...this just happened a couple months ago and we replaced the Drain Pump it possible that we are once again going to have...

Hello, W/D here.
What you are seeing is the suds (SUD) error code, followed by a long drain fault code (F02).
This does not necessarily indicate that you need to change anything at this time. When the machine senses too much suds, the error code is displayed, when too much suds are actually present, a longer drain time results.
Duets are HE (high efficiency) machines, and require a detergent that produces little suds. If you are using HE detergent, cut back on it until you can run a cycle without getting the SUD/F02 alarms. If you are not using HE detergent (we don't either), you really have to be careful with the amount of detergent used.
Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display. Run a cycle without any detergent to flush the machine.
It is advisable to check that the drain hose isn't plugged or have a kink in it.
Make sure that the pump is running. You may need to check the electrical connections at the pump.
You might check the filter on the drain pump for debris or foreign objects, which might cause the drain cycle to be extended.
If limiting the detergent, and nothing was found in checking the other items listed, then the pump may need to be replaced.
Best regards, --W/D--

I started a wash cycle, needed to add more laundry, press the pause/cancel buttom twice, now I can't start it again. When I press the start buttom everything goes blank, all lights go off

Remove the power plug and keep aside. Keep the sart button pressed on to discharge. After 15 minutes switch on the washer while holding the pause/cancel button.
If the set does not come back to life it iis possible that the main board has encountered some errors.
Repeat the procedure after some time.

When push the start button it will run for a minute and then beep the display window will read f 11

The MCU motor control unit is at fault.
Unplug the washer for 60 seconds.
Plug it back in and try again.
If the fault reoccurs,replace the MCU.

Washer smelly musty and moldy. How can I get the smell to go away? Is there something we can take apart or clean to stop this smell. Not what you want to smell when you are trying to get fresh clean...

I have this problem with my Siemens machine, it is due to mainly running low temp washes and bateria building up in the hoses etc. (more prevalent if the machine is connected directly to the sink and not on a stand pipe). I run a 90 degree cycle every 4 weeks with the machine empty except for two capfuls of baby sterilisng fluid (approx half a mug) I buy stores own as it is cheaper than miltons. The first time I did mine I ran the cycle twice to be sure it was cleared out. My machine is six years old and the first smelly signs were when it was about a year old, I run the maintenance wash religiously ever 4 weeks and run a machine descaler such as oust thru every 4-6 months. Hope this helps. Roni. (ps don't be tempted to use bleach as it foams up and can cause more problems!!)

Twice lately we have had water run out from underneath the washer. I have taken the fron off, watched it, put it back and a month later it does it again. Please help

Sounds like the water load size selector tube is plugged. Take apart area where selector switch is, you will see rubber tubing connected to switch, take off an blow out. Put back together. Soap clogs up tubing then washer overflows and comes out the bottom of unit.
