    I need to check the pump, but I think the tub bearing may also be bad. are they a problem to change?

  • skierblues May 14, 2009

    I purchased the MAH5500B in Dec 2003 and used it for less than 2 years before the army transfered us to Germany so it was put into storage. We just moved back to the US and after about 2 weeks of use it is doing the same thing - not emptying the water at the end of the cycle, clothes smell like mold, mold is building up in the washer - I called Maytag and they basically told me it was my problem and didnt care - never again will I buy Maytag

    I have the same problem...but I solved it by lessening the amount of clothes I put in it to be washed....still can not get to moldy smell out...

Open the rear panel and remove the drain pump and clean it.
If there is nothing in the pump, check the drain motor for 18 ohms with a volt/ohm meter.
Not 18 ohms, replace the motor.

Model MAH 7800 drain pump will not run, door locks, tub spins, water drains by gravity


Well your drain pump needs attention for sure. There could be an object lodged against propellers or it may need to be relaced. Try unplugging the connector that goes to the pump and plugging back in. Also try tapping the the motor part of the drain assembly while in spin cycle before replacing. Good luck.

Hello I have a Maytag Washer Model A512 The machine goes through a regular cycle OK - However, it DOES drains the water out during the rinse cycle, but does NOT drain the water out during the spin...


The timer will always advance to the next program if the machine does not fully drain. There is ALWAYS a spin when draining the water out, there is only one pump and one motor. The waterlogged laundry maybe telling the timer that there is still water in the tub. Put the machine on "Spin" and cheat the lid switch into thinking that the lid is closed. Use a clothes peg or wide ended screwdriver and see if there really is a spin....

My maytag washer mah-24 have a "nd" msg. which mean "not draining" and now i cannot open the door to take the clothes out. pls. help.


Unlocking the door:
Turn on the washer, but don't start any wash cycles. After a few minutes, the door should unlock itself.

Troubleshooting the "nd" message:
"nd" means "no drain". Empty the (now unlocked) washer and fill the wash tub with just enough water to see a bit of water at the bottom of the tub. Run a drain cycle and check a) if it drains and b) if there are any unusual noises while it is draining. If either event occurs during the drain cycle, the drain pump may have to be repaired/replaced.

Will not spin regularly


The water should be pumped out in a short time just before the spin cycle begins. Do you hear the pump motor running? Check the drain hoses to and from the water pump for kinking. If ok, check for a stray sock or something that blocks the drain port in the bottom of the outer tub. If also ok, check the plastic pump impeller itself for sheared splines which couple it to the motor shaft. If the motor turns, but impeller doesn't, replace the pump mechanism. If still under warranty, take advantage. Hope this helps!

Washer will not spin and drain water after washing. The timer will run thru it's cycle and you can hear it running but after the wash cycle it does nothing.


The water must drain away before modern electronic controls will allow 'spin' to occur. Check the hoses to and from the pump for kinking and the drain port at the bottom of the outer tub for any debris in the tub that can obstruct water outflow. If all looks ok, concentrate on the water pump itself--the motor must run, but the impeller in the pump may not be turning with the motor shaft. Impellers in these pumps are made of plastic and are lightly splined to the motor shaft. Sometimes these splines shear off and the impeller remains relatively motionless. It might be possible to 'super-glue' the impeller to the shaft or just replace the whole pump mechanism. Hope this helps!

My machine make too much noise


does it sound like a 747 about to crash in your house? if so you might as well through your washer away because you have a bad bearing and the cost to repair that is about the same for a new one. let me know if this helps

Water stays in drum after cycle is complete and odor


I think from what you have said, that you have a pump problem. The water pump on most washers collect all sorts of bits and pieces including small coins. You may be able to clean out the pump if it is not a sealed unit.
