Question about Maytag Washing Machines

Maytag front loading washer

The door on my washer recently started opening at the bottom allowing water to rush out. The door was still locked at the top, but the bottom of the door pushed out allowing the water to get out. When I pushed the off button, the machine continued to fill with additional water making the problem evn worse.

First check that gasket around door for rips tears and warpped condiction..if that not the case this will help...easy now go slow than check unit,,grasp the door and bend SLOWLY..from bottom of door and hinge,,because sometimes we hang wet clothes over the door ,and bend the hinge..the last but neat trick is to put 2 washers behind the door latch lock..between the door latchlock,,and the inner panel..that will push the latch back and make the door itself get tighter against the gasket..dont worry about the extra water that is just a flush down,,,keep me posted onthejob

Is there any kind of recall on a Maytay front loading washer, model #MAH6500AWW? I am having problems with mildew in the rubber part and terrible smelling water in the bottom.


The cleaning process for your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer, for example, requires some time and patience. Over time, your washing machine will need to be cleaned. It can develop offensive odors through multiple wash cycles. This makes the washing machine less effective at cleaning the clothes you put into it. Maytag offers some sound advice for cleaning your front-loading washing machine.
  • Pour 2/3 cup of liquid chlorine bleach into the bleach compartment of the dispenser drawer of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer.

  • 2

    Run your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer on the "Clean Washer" setting. Press "Start" to start the cycle.

  • 3

    Leave the door open once the cycle is complete to allow the inside of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer to ventilate and air dry.

  • 4

    Look closely at the gray seal of the Maytag Neptune front-loading washer's door opening. This seal can have a buildup of debris or detergent residue.

  • 5

    Spray the seal with an all-purpose appliance cleaner and scrub away any debris or residue with a cloth or scrubbing pad. Dry with a clean cloth.

  • 6

    Remove the soap dispenser drawer. Press the release lever and lift it out to clean.

  • 7

    Take out the inserts and rinse them and the drawer thoroughly.

  • 8

    Wash with a mild soap and cloth to remove any residue. Dry thoroughly before replacing.


  • ALWAYS LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN WHEN NOT IN USE! This prevents the mold and mildew from forming once you get it cleaned.

    Door will not close


    Hi,

    Make sure you are allowing the washer to completely finish its cycle before opening the door. It is normal for the door to lock at the end of a cycle. The locking mechanism keeps owners from opening the door before all of the water has been drained. If the door on the washer is locked, select the "Drain" or "Spin" options on the front-load washer. This will completely drain the water from the system and unlock the door, allowing you to open it.
    Thank you !!

    Maytag neptune front load washer says control lock and wont start and buttons wont work


    unplug the washer for 15 minutes then:plug it back in and, restart a few times in a different cycle canceling each time until the door opens. Do this only if the tub is not full of water if it is let me know and, i'll show you how to drain the washer first before we try to open the door.

    The door will not open.


    This is usally a door lock problem, or control board(you can pull bottom panel off and reach up by door lock and pull on a little plastic ring to release the door, make sure there is no water that can pour out)
