Maytag model 6000

I have had the model 6000 for 7 years. At one point it cleaned clothes very well. Now I need to wash the clothes 2 or 3 times to get them clean. no I am not overpacking the machine. I do have dogs so there is lots of dog here on things. Does anyone have any advice what might be the problem without tossing out the unit

Why is my maytag 2000 washing machine leaking from underneath when it is only 2-1/2 years old

You need to establish the area that you have seen the water pooling and trace it back if possible.Make sure you disconnect the machine from the power point before you conduct these checks. Is the water clean, dirty or oil contaminated. if you can't determine exactly where the leak is coming from try placing a chux cloth around a hose with a cable tie before a wash then check it on the completion of the cycle - make sure the chux cloth does not effect the operation of the machine.

A co-worker sold me this washer: model MAV6250Aww, ser# 20480262zu; that had just sat in storage for a while. Washed clothes came out with a lot of lint- even after a repairman "cleaned" it out. Any...

These washer are notorious for linting, there is no real solution, reduce wash time to bare minimum, try sorting clothes into different categories, whites separate washed from dark clothes, use good quality detergent. The only way to fix this problem completely is a neutral drain kit, I do not believe Maytag sells one.

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.

    Maytag Top Loader Thumps When In Spin Cycle

    My guess is that one of the three counterweights have separated from their support. Probably rusted away.
    36 years is quite a feat. Today's machines would be lucky to 1/3 of that life.
    Sounds like its time to go shopping.

    WASHER MAGIC is the revolutionary product specifically formulated to safely and effectively clean the family washing machine. Top loading machine use whole bottle. Front loading use 1/2 bottle. You may rub Washer Magic on with a rag to eliminate odors.

    Why Use WASHER MAGIC? Every time you wash your clothes, hard water and detergents causes lime scale and rust to build up inside the tub, pump and hoses. This build-up reduces the ability of your washing machine to perform. Mineral build-up acts as an abrasive increasing the wear on your clothes. The result: your clothes are not as clean as they could be and wear out sooner.

    If you are unhappy with the way your clothes comes out of the wash, then WASHER MAGIC may be the solution you have been looking for. Only WASHER MAGIC can restore the family washing machine to the way it performed when it was new. Use once a month for optimal washer performance and to keep control of trouble causing build-up.
