SOURCE: bleach wont drain during washing

You may have a clog on that side where the water comes into it, or the dispenser valve is not opening that side.

There is a service sheet inside the bottom of that front lower access panel on the right side wall, you can go through the diagnostics to test the water flow to that side of the tray.

SOURCE: My Maytag washer smells. How

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Bad odours could be coming from a few places.

  1. the plumbing u-bend or
  2. the fact that there is 'foul' water being left in the drum.
  3. No washes at 90 degree+ !
I would suggest checking the plumbing u-bend for trouble first, then following the notes on checking and cleaning the drain filter and the drain pump to ensure there is nothing 'obnoxious' hanging around the two of them! Finally run the occasional 90+ wash to kill bacteria.
Here are my complete and generic guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
For the bleach (which I don't normally recommend, not unless the washer's manual advises it)- it doesn't mater which because the water in the dispenser washes it straight into the tub.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

Maytag Bravos XL HE Leaks Adjacent to Bleach Dispenser, how do I fix this?


Fill it with water by hand and see what happens. Tape paper towels in the suspected area. Makes it easier to see. Part 2 ans: so the water is over powering the drain...that sucks. You are right, the valve is probably letting too much water out. I don't know if it is adjustable but I do know it'll probably cost a lot for an itty-bitty brass valve. If money is not a problem replace the valve. If you are a DIY'er, I'd try to use some sort of clamp on the hose leading into the dispenser and close it just enough to slow the flow down. Another idea is to open the drain up by cutting away some of the screen if it has one. A better source than me is to go to repairclinic.com and email them. They have a lot more experience than me. I did appliance repair as a side to handyman for 20 years & fixed just about everything for 50. I never had any formal training.

The solenoid that turns on to dispense the bleach is bad, or you have a clogged tube that goes from bleach dispenser to tub.

My maytag neptune tl wont use the fab. softener. i put it in its compartment but it is full after the load is done. not sure what is wrong.


For the FAv6800A or FAV9800A:

If you have no water flow to the Softener dispenser here is a non technical troubleshooting would be to enter Service Mode (page 14 of the Service manual) by Pressing Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys (simultaneously) for three seconds or until the console beeps.

Now go to page 16 to Service Manual and enter Board Output Test by pressing the Delicates key. This will lock the lid. Now press the
Wrinkle Control Key Pad on the console. The Control Board will send 120VAC to the bleach dispenser water valve. Did you hear the Solenoid hum? If so and you have no water flow diverted to the Softener dispenser the solenoid valve may be stuck closed. If you did not hear the solenoid valve hum the solenoid field coil may be open.

Final technical troubleshooting as a technical owner of the machine would be to take my DVM and verify 120VAC from the Control Board to the Bleach dispenser valve.


See page 36 lower left hand corner is the Bleach/Softener dispenser valve.

Here is the Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.

The Part Number for the Dispenser Valve is 25001043 if you need to replace can order from appliancezone.com theyhave a price check search engine.

Our Maytag Washing Machine Model number MFW9700SQ1 stinks!


This is a common problem, you can run a few cups of vinager or bleach in a empty load set to hot wash and this will help. To keep it from coming back when your done doing wash wipe the door gasket down with a rag dampened with bleach and never shut the door all the way. Good Luck

Maytag Neptune Washer dispenser unit has mold and mildew inside top of dispenser compartment.


You can pour the bleach in the drawer every time you do white loads and it will stay clear too!
Just flush it out good before you do colored clothes or you may get a small bleach spot on a red shirt !
