Replace water valve in the washer. Serial number is needed to find the correct part number. It's likely 22003834, but call any parts supplier with model/serial numbers to verify.

Good luck,

Sounds like a leak either in the bottom, connector or water valve for your water inlet line. Visually finding the leak is your best bet, then you know what parts are to be replaced.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- depending on whether it is hot or cold water with which the tub fills.
Sorry but it needs replacing and a service call ;-0(
Good luck,

Hi I have a Maytag Neptune model MAH5500BWW Serial B4585662GA. When I turn the drum, I can still hear water inside/behind the drum. Thank you


This is normal. There is a balance ring filled with water attached to the inner drum. The balance ring is sealed and is not supposed to be empty. When you turn the inner drum by hand, you're hearing the water settling down from the now upper chambers of the balance ring.

the noise you're describing is normal - there is water in a sealed balance ring on the inner tub. To get rid of the mildew and smell, leave door open after cycle and use something like Affresh or "Smelly washer" stuff monthly or more often.

Maytag Neptune Front Load Washer Model MAH4000AWW low last spin


two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news

Maytag Neptune washer, model MAH5500BWW, not spinning up to speed


Open the lid. take one hand and push the tub back toward a back corner. Take your other hand and fill in the gap on the opposite corner. There should be a black round rubber strap going from the outside top of the tub to the cabinet. Once you find it check all four corners. I feel sure that you will find more than one broken. These help to keep the load balanced. It is very important that you change these as soon as possible due to after these break these machines are bad about the tub banging into the sides and cracking the outer tub. To replace the tub will run ( in my area) around $240 - $300. These straps are not hard to replace and don't cost very much. I would rate replacing them a 2 on a hardness scale from 1 to 10. 10 being the hardest.
Please rate this solution if helpful.
