    Hi Richard, sure hope you can help! It's 3000 series, model # MHWE300VW12. Series CSY2710997. Type 199. Thanks! Looking forward to your response

    OK, if the unit is dead you will need to replace the CCU. I replace about 3 of these a week on the 3000 series. The CCU is easy to get to if you remove the top and it just snaps in. Here is the part to order.

    Thank you Richard. This machine is only 3 years old. I have not liked it since the beginning and Maytag will not answer my emails. Is this common for this machine, a major flaw it seems. The part is out of stock on line and in the stores here!! I want to throw this machine in the garbage!

    This is a common problem to this machine. One way to save the electronics is to have a surge suppressor on the unit. It doesn't take much to knock it out.

    The part is available thru my supplier and it comes with a 365 day, any part, any reason return policy so if it should happen to go out within a year, they will replace it free. They are the only supplier I use! Here is the part to order.

  • Deb thordarson Dec 01, 2012

    Richard. It says out of stock

    If you call the phone number on the page they will be able to get the CCU for you. Also, there is a live chat option at the top of the parts page.

SOURCE: Maytag front loader washer--door won't open but lock light off

Open the soap dispenser. Look down in front of the fabric softener dish.
You should see a yellowy-green plastic cord (like weed-whacker line). Pull it.
The door should open.

If you don't see the cord, remove the four screws that hold the dispenser lid in place to find it. Just don't lose it when you put the cover back on.

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.

    Hi! I have a Maytag Neptune front loading washer machine. On a few occasions I have found a small amount of water in the drum before starting my weekly laundry. Today when I went to start my laundry...

    Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

    This is symptomatic of a water control valve not closing completely- its no power/fail position is closed.
    Whichever it is, hot or cold, needs replacing!
    Service call ;-0(
    Good luck,
