Need to drain the tub before moving

We are in the process of moving and I know that my neptune washer has a water reserve of some sort under the tub. I would like to know how to drain it out so I don't hurt myself getting it moved to it's new home.

It should all be drained out of there except a little in the hose. The sloshing sound you hear in there is not old water or stored up water. It is a liquid in a balancing ring that is sealed shut but it sounds like the water is in the tub. The best way to get all the water out is to take a wet vac and **** out the water from the drain hose. Just put you hand around the 2 hoses to kind of seal it and lay it on the floor. Nothing more is really needed to move it. Just don't be too wild moving it around lol. Front load machines are usually very heavy becuase they have cement or heavy pieces to keep the basket from moving around too much in a high speed spin. Good luck

Yes, the Neptune is a great washer, arguably. :-> You just may have a clogged pump. Pull the back panel and the rest is evident. Pull baffles, remove gookus, pull pump, clean, etc. ...just like a plumber. Be sure to pull the rubber baffe directly from the bottom of the outer tub. You may need a wet/dry vac to assist you. It's a bear of a job but I do it all the time.

Hello, On Neptune washer serial # 34098916EF, Washer tub fills with about 2 inches of water within hours after doing a wash. When I spin the tub by hand, I hear water sloshing inside. Machine drains fine....


You have a bad water fill valve. Until you get it fixed shut water valves off at the wall so that you don't have a flood if the fill valve on the machine fails completely. Let me know if there is anything else I can Help you with.

WHEN WASH IS COMPLETE, WHEN YOU SPIN THE TUB BY HAND YOU CAN HEAR WATER SLASHING.


The pump cannot completely drain all the water out of washers. There will be some water left in the bottom of the tub that you can't see but here slosh around if you move the basket. If your clothes are not wet, this is probably normal.

What is the vertical pumping capacity for a Maytag Neptune washer


I believe it can be done,but I dont think it is recommended by the manufacturer. if you are in a basement and that is your only option, the only suggestion I would have is to build a platform for the waher and dryer to sit on . It would have to be very sturdy. Maytag recommends that you install a wash tub or something of the sort and install a sump pump to pump the water into the drain.
