Maytag Neptune washer MAH5500BWW - water remains after wash cycle

Following a wash cycle there is water remaining in the unit.  The way you can tell is by turning the tub by hand and you hear the sloshing sound at the bottom.  No water is visible, but it seems the excess water is not correct.

SOURCE: I need an instruction manual for Maytag topload washer Neptune TL

Get the Service Manual this will help you diagnose issues with this washer.  I found a Service repair manual on this site search for this; FAV6800 Manual.  Check the postings and you will find a URL to the manual.

From another member a step by step to dump water from machine in diag mode  ""One other thing I learned for those of you who don’t want to bail out the water in the tub. If you want to have the machine drain the excess water without bailing this should work. Turn the machine off and make sure the "locked door" light goes off. Then hold the "Spin" and "Enviro Plus" buttons at the same time for 3 seconds. "00" should then show up on the display. Then hit the "Delicate" button, then the “Pre-soak” button. This should activate the pump and get all the water out. Once the water is out hit the off button. You then may want to try the Spin cycle alone. These directions can be found on the Troubleshooting Manual found folded up behind the rear panel of the machine where the main electrical circuit board is located.""

SOURCE: WATER STANDING IN THE DRUM AFTER WASH CYCLE

can you see water in the tub, or do you hear water when you turn the tub? if you hear water when the tub turns, it is not water. the stainless drum has a liquid inside it for balancing loads. if this is the case, there is no problem. but if you see water in the tub that didnt drain, you need to check the pump and the hose from the pump to the outer tub. look for restrictions (coins, tooth pick, nail, ect.). also check the pump impellers to make sure none of them are broke, there are three plastic impellers. if any are broke, replace the pump. hope this helps you. let me know if you have any further questions. shane

I have a Maytag Neptune washer (model MAH5500BWW) that won't completely drain. It goes through the normal cycles but, but water still remains in the tub. Could the pump be out and how can you tell if...


Check the pump out flow of the drain hose, is it a good strong flow or does it seem weak and restricted. If the drain is slow the machine will stop before it is empty. Also if the drain hose is not vented, mounted too high in the air, or has a piece added on making it longer, it may degrade performance.

Maytag Neptune - MAH5500BWW makes loud, loud noise during spin cycle. What parts are necessary to repair the unit? I assume there are bearings and seals needed. Thank you.


Hi,
When my washer did that, I found that the shocks that hold the tub were bad...

Check out this tip I wrote about the noise and vibration that front loadwashers can make..

Unplug the unit for 5 minutes to reset the control. if the control continues to remain locked, this will confirm board failuer and, you will need to replace this control board.

If the water is draining out o.k. then either there is no signal from the water level pressure switch, no signal from the control board or a problem with the Spin windings.
