Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
My Maytag 5500 made wierd growling noises during the drain cycle, failed to drain, and flashed 'nd'. I was able to manually drain the washer by placing the end of the drain hose in a bowl on the floor and baling until it was finished. That proved that the problem was in the drain pump, rather than a manual obstruction. I also forced a spin cycle to remove some additional water (draining into the bowl again) before opening up the machine. I unplugged the electric, took the four screws off the back access panel of the washer and twisted the pump ccw to remove it. Took the inlet and outlet hoses off--I had put towels down in the bottom of the washer but there was still a lot of water to clean up. Unplugged two sets of cables so I could have the pump free to examine. The impeller was rattling around freely. I pushed the impeller back onto the metal rod, put the whole thing back together, plugged it in and ran the load. Drains like a champ!
