Maytag Neptune MAH8700AWW Front load

My washers is gusing water from the detergent dispense area.  I removed the dispenser and found that the water was not draining into the washer fast enough.  I can only assume there may be some detergent build up or something of that nature.  What can I do?

    I have a Maytag MAH5500BWW front load washer. Started noticing that the bleach and fabric softener cups in the machine were still full after the cycle was complete. I checked the hoses in the back of the macine and they are clear. I watched a whole cycle and the water rinses to the main "add soap" area but never into the bleach or softener cups. Any ideas on a fix? Thank you!!

    I have the same problem with the bleach and fabric softener cups. They do not empty, even though the detergent cup works fine.  Is this a bad solenoid? My machine is 3.5 years old.

    Water backs up in the detergent dispenser compartment. Sometimes whatever ever is misaligned gets aligned ad the water flows at it should to the tub. Most the time it just pours out of the seams of the dispenser draw.

HELP! I have a Maytag Neptune model #MAH8700AWW. Water is leaking from under the machine when in the wash cycle. I just replaced the drain assy. pump. My machine was not leaking before the new part. The assy pump is not leaking. Water seems to be coming from the front of the machine. Anyone else had this problem?

I was able to fix the problem of bleach and softener not dispensing by increasing the water pressure / water flow ( eg opening the supply valves more). I'd also unplugged the washer for 10 minutes, but i don't think this had any effect. I'd recently installed a whole- house water filter and I think the water pressure had dropped.
Here is advise I got from and ebay guide.
There are a couple ways Maytag directed water to the bleach and softener, both are easy to check.  Take the screws out from the door opening (both sides) and squeeze at the top lip of the front panel, it will pop out.  remove the 4 screws that hold in the soap dispenser and the two screws that hold the lid clamps (they were uncovered when you took the front panel off. at the top.  now the top should hinge back.  You should see two tubes directed at the bleach and softener dispenser.  The should be either deflected, or pinched, buy a wax motor, or a solenoid.  Power come from the timer.   Go to my web page and download the service manual (free link on left margin of my Maytag web page www.goetjen.com/maytag.htm.) for more information

You must be on the right track, must be a blockage at the back of the soap drawer, check if junior has posted a toy car! If not turn down the water pressure at the machine stop tap

Why maytag neptune washer water pouring out soap dispenser door?


Either there is a sock stuck between the inner tub and the water
inlet to the tub or more likely you have been using to much liquid detergent and cold water wash all the time . This can cause the supply tube below the dispenser to be plugged up. Have fun cleaning it. Warm wash should always be used. Detergent needs the heated water to work properly .
only other possibility is mice building a nest if the washer hasn't
been used in along time.

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 !
