How do you clean a Maytag Neptune top loading washer


Tip: Prevent a Smelly Washer With Powdered Dishwasher Detergent

I have a great tip for making a smelly clothes washer smell fresh and clean, given to me by a Maytag repairman. Simply run dishwasher detergent powder, not liquid, through your machine with no clothing in it, about once or twice a month.
It works and it is cheaper than the specialized products that do the same thing. Use the same amount you would use of laundry detergent for your particular machine.

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.

    Clothes not clean after washing


    Were the settings appropriate for the clothing?
    The settings on the machine should be set properly for the load. Different fabric types require different wash/rinse temperatures, spin speeds, and wash times. Always follow the instructions printed on the fabric care label. The soil level needs to be set in accordance with the load type. Heavily soiled clothing will not come clean with a light soil level setting.
    Was the proper detergent used?
    If too much detergent is used, or non-HE detergent is used, the machine will not wash properly. Too many suds present during a wash decreases tumbling action and will not rinse out well. Furthermore, detergent residue built up in the machine over time will deposit extra detergent on clothes and deposit soil back into clothing.

    Was the washer overloaded? If the machine is overloaded, the machine will not wash and rinse properly. When the washer is overloaded, the clothes have no room to tumble, and the cleaning performance of the washer is reduced. In addition, when the clothes are packed tightly inside the drum the detergent and water will not distribute evenly throughout the items.

    Front loaders require regular maintenance to ensure optimum performance. If this maintenance is not followed, residue can accumulate in the drum resulting in detergent and soil being deposited back into clothing. This can also lead to odor and other issues. Perform the required maintenance regularly (once or twice a month).

    Clothes look drab after washing them.


    Is the machine new or old? How long has this been a problem? Has this been occuring slowly or has it started suddenly? Before you give blame to the machine, I suggest you wash your clothes at a laundromat or a friend/relative washing machine to see the results you get. Also, the detergent could be partially at fault especially if you use too little or too much (too much will cause a film to build-up on the clothes that cannot be washed away enough durung rinse). IF AFTER TRYING THESE SUGGESTIONS YOU STILL HAVE THE PROBLEM, open the lid while your Maytag is washing to see if the water level is sufficient and to see if the aggitator is moving; note- you may have to open quickly and check very fast to see if there is aggitation movement because some models stop the washing if you open lid (all models stop the rinse/spin action if you open lid.Goodluck, Macgivor

    Clothing are left with lint after washing cycles


    Seperate fluffy linty clothes and wash those separately; never mix that stuff up. Also keep the dark and lights separate.I do a number of smaller loads that are in a lot of water; you get cleaner clothes and less wear. Overloads are hard on the washer and the clothes. Rots of Ruck.

    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.
