Washer fills with water but agitation does not start-a continuous groaning sound is heard ; sounds as if it is stuck/something is holding it back.What may be the cause? how can it be fixed?

Plug off the wall, etc. Remove the rear cover. There is a thin tube coming from the control panel area to the base where the water exits, this should not be blocked, remove from top and blow to check, refit. Next clean out your outlet filter, it could be clogged, refit. This tube controls the water level. Do not overload your machine, the manual will tell you the max load. Check to see if any hose has come loose from behind the machine; look inside from behind.

I have a Maytag Centennial top load washer. When washing in normal or heavy with large or super load size, the washer remains in sensing mode. Some water does start to fill, but never reaches wash cycle....

This unit does not handle a super large load as it advertised. When you put a super large load, the sensor is over-sized and will not move on the next cycle.

My Maytag Neptune fnt loader Model# MAH9700AWW

I have a Maytag neptune mah8700aww
With mine the large grey rubber seal that seals at door slipped off! When this happens if you do not put back on correctly it will leak or even poor out the front center bottom of the door! My husband fixed it. But it still leaked really bad! I just took a couple of min. to refit the seal and it does not leak at all now! maybe your seal is not placed around the edge correctly! as it is easy to place it wrong! good luck!! keep my email address if I was helpfull!! We can always share problems and solutions for our neptunes in the future ! good luck

Clothes are not clean How can I take washer aprt to clean soap dispenser???

Dear carolesergy,
Welcome to fixya

You sad,My clothes get dingier ever week from using my washer especially the towels. They are now Grey and not white

1.Here are some ideas and INFO!
2.How old is your MAH5500B washer and did you buy it new?
3.Do you use HE High Efficient detergent?
4.Do you ONLY put the proper amount of detergent directed to be used by the manufacturer?
5.Using to much detergent will degrade the seal and eventually destroy the bearings.
Which will cause oil to leak out on your clothes and sometimes make gray stains on them !
6.Is there tiny gray oily pieces in the wash and on clothes?
7.Look closely at your rubber seal around the opening. Is this worn or deteriorating away slowly due to bleach or detergent? Is it a gray or black rubber?

Please have patients and bear with me, with all these questions I propose to you here!
I am searching with your eyes for things I have seen in the past about this model"

Here are some reasons this may also happen!

How large of a load can I wash in my Maytag Neptune washer?
* The tub can be loaded completely full with dry, unfolded clothes. However, do not pack the tub tightly. If the load is heavily
soiled it is very important not to overload the washer.

My whites are not as white as I’d like.What can I do?
* Wash white loads using the cotton/sturdy fabric selection. Select the hot wash/cold rinse temperature setting and put 3/4
cup of chlorine bleach in the bleach dispenser. The bleach will be dispensed in the final minutes of the wash providing for
optimal whitening. Maytag recommends a hot water wash temperature of 120-140° F (49°- 60° C).

*The lint filter in side the machine may be clogging with dirty lint!
*Which means you needed service!

I hope one of these solutions is the reason!
Let me know how you do!
Please remember to leave a rating for me!
