The fault seems to be that the main seal is rubbing against and is thus producing the oily residue on the window. Now the fault seems that the drum is rubbing due to POOR ALIGNMENT or poor BEARING settings.
You need to check the PLAY on the drum and if this shakes a bit then the assembly must be reset with correct aligment and the drum must move without rubbing the rubber seals.

SOURCE: Maytag Washer Noise While Spinning

Most washer models have snap-clips holding the front of the top panel down, with hinge-like clips at the back. Carefully pry up the top panel on the front of the machine using a tool that won't scratch the finish, such as a plastic or wooden wedge. If it does not pop loose fairly easily, then carefully examine the back of the machine to see if this is a rare model that has screws holding down the top panel. (But really, it _should_ just pop loose.) Once the top panel is tilted up to expose the inside, you should be able to see everything you need to see inside the body to evaluate a spinning drum problem.

SOURCE: Water Leak from the Front Door of our Maytag Epic MFW9700S

The water leaking is most likely the gasket. It may have a little rip or something making it not seal. Im not sure about Maytag but on our GE we had to slide the the top back to remove some screws then (I believe to was for the control panel) Then we removed screws for the door and the front of the washer. When that was done you have to remove a round clamp that holds the gasket on. Then replace the gasket.

My suggestion is to have a appliance repair come and do it. Its a pain to do, at least it was for me.

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.

    What is the best way to clean the mold off the door gasket


    I use to have the exact same washer. When Maytag was Maytag before the merger with Whirlpool they suggested using a mixture of bleach and Sunlight power dishwasher detergent. You can also usually find a washing maching cleaner like Tide washer cleaner or Washer Magic. Run it on the longest and hottest wash cycle. Stop the maching during the wash portion and wipe the door seal down well with a rag and ware gloves. Also make sure that the little drain hole in the center of the bottom of the door boot (gasket) is not not blocked up with lint or anything. If your mold problem is really bad you might have to call a repair man out to replace the gasket and clean inbetween your inner and outter tubs.

    Black stains on door


    If it is inside, it is probably mold growing. Front loaders are much more susceptible to mold growth as they seal up tighter, and we all tend to keep the door closed when it is not in use.
    Clean the inner door and bellows surfaces with a 50/50 bleach/water solution, applying liberally, and dump the rest into the tub of the washer. Add 1 more cup of bleach to the tub. Fill all of the dispenser cups with bleach. Run the hottest , longest cycle available with the hottest rinse cycle available. For us, it is the "sanitary" cycle. Run a normal cycle immediately thereafter to flush out residual bleach, and leave the door open. The cleaning along with the air drying will keep the mold from growing, and reduce the odors that these machines are famous for. Leave the door open between loads.

    Best regards, --W/D--

    Washer stops


    Initially, pls open the lower access panel (bottom of your washer) by removing the 3 torx screws. There would be a sheet that lists the error codes. The panel pulls forward and down, inside mounted on the right side taped to that inner panel would be the above described sheet. Additionally, to my knowledge, this indicates a door latch fault, the machine cannot activate the lock or senses that the door is not closed or the door is not locked.

    In some instances, the error code F/DL could be triggered be a loose component. This could be that the plastic fitting on the door is loose and therefore will not latch on the locking assembly or the locking assembly itself is loose. You could then try opening and closing the door a couple of times.

    Should this be not corrective, then the logic controller board may require close checking.

    Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

    Clothes come out oily after wash


    Hello
    Welcome to fixya.
    I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

    You said,you have a Eurotech front loader. Lately you have observed that your cotton materials come out with oily spots after wash. What can one use to address this problem.

    In most front loaders when this happens it is usually either of two things.
    1.Front loaders must have HE detergent for their use and if you do not use HE detergent you must cut your detergent and bleach in half.
    Because to much detergent destroys your seal and eventually your bearings! And any other rubber seals like the rubber door seal in the front opening.
    These degrade and get into the wash and depending on the color of the rubber (Black or gray) are found to stain your clothing or leave a residue in those colors.!
    Those washers with Grey rubber like Maytag's have gray stains and or residues!
    I have people asking me about this problem every day!

    Call the manufacturer and ask if they have any cleaner that you can run once with out clothes to put an end to this!
    And then use HE detergent and or half the dose of bleach form now on!

    I hope this brings some lihgt to your problem. Please let me know what the Eurotech proplr tell you to use to clean it out of your washer!

    Please remember to leave a rating before you go!
    Thank you
