Question about Maytag MAH6500 Neptune Front Loading Washer w/Built in Water Heater
3 year old machine just started today. I cleaned the tray of caked on detergent,machine is level,turned the water valve down a little,cleaned the upper water holes with a tooth brush, water still flows out the front when machine goes into wash cycle. I noticed when I pulled the tray out there is a drain that runs the water into the drum,could this be starting to stop up. Feels like there is a plastic sleeve in there. If this needs to be cleaned how do you get to it and is the other end connected to anything?
I have a whirlpool duet sport and it was leaking from the detergent despencer. Since the dryer sitting on top of the washer I didnt want to take the top off. I took the control panel off then took the front panel loose and let it hang a by the seal. I could then see the tube going from the detergent despencer to the tub. I unclamped the hose and wiggled it out of the lower hole. I found a sock in the tube. I removed the obstruction and reassembled the washer. Works fine, PS this advice is free other jackholes want 30 bucks. Have a great day and good luck you can do it!

The other end of the dispenser to outer drum hose only connects to the outer drum and if you remove the top cover of the machine, you will see it clearly. You can unclamp the hose from the bottom of the dispenser and feel inside the hose for any obstruction. Do not remove the hose from the outer drum. Pour some hot water down the hose and squeeze the hose from top to bottom to remove build up of detergent and softener on the inside walls of the hose.

I have had this happen. I have taken the dispenser tray out and cleaned the area where the water and the detergent will flow into the washer at. This area had gotten some gunk build up, once I cleaned it, it has not leaked since. Now I just routinely look at this and make sure that it is clean. Hope this helps you.
