Question about Maytag MAH6700AWW Neptune Front-Load Washer
It appears that during the wash cycle, water overflows from the softner dispenser and leak out the front door.
I set up a video to tape my machine and saw not a little spray but a steady flow of water coming out at the bottom of the soap tray. After removing the soap tray and taping a piece of plastic over the opening, I noticed that the spray of water which rinses out the soap tray was spraying on the plastic pretty hard and reasonably high. That is because the first set of holes have a little deflector on them directing the spray to the front (I guess to make sure the soap tray is rinsed out). I got a sharp chisel and carefully knocked the deflectors off. Now it sprays down and not out toward the front of the soap tray. I suspect that the nozzles were getting clogged (maybe from calcium) and shoot the water higher than it was supposed to.
No leaking yet.

I had same thing with MtgNeptune frnt loader. Manual sed may be a kink in the front drain hose, caused by sudden burst in water pressure. Not in my case. A service call and $90 laterwasn't fixed. I pulled the soap tray and found rinse water wasn't going down the well as fast as it was filling, causing water to spill down front, and around the door. I turned down the water pressure 2 days ago and 9 loads later- no problem! It may take a few minutes longer to fill, but far less work than mopping after each load or hitting 'pause' and 'start' while waiting for the the water level to go down. We're on a well and ocassionally have change in water pressure. I don't know if this was the problem, but it was definately my solution! I turned the intake vavles at the wall to 1/2 pressure. Floor is staying dry and the drain tray beneath is also dry ($12.00 Menards). I hope this helps.
