Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
My washer goes through a complete cycle and when it is suppose to drain it doesn't. There is a rubbery smell that comes from the machine and I don't hear the pump come on to drain the water out.

I'm not sure if this is the same model as our but I will let you know ours did not drain all the way and kept stopping, not completing the cycle. We found that if you take the bottom of the front of the washer panel off thre is a circular looking thing, it happens to be a trap for waste, sort of like the dryers lint catcher. Make sure you put something under it befor you loosen the cap water will come out. When we took the cap off, it was filled with gunk and we cleaned it out and the problem was solved!!!! Amazing because we tried everything , called everyone and not one person even mentioned we had a trap in the washer... It should be right in the center when you take the front lower panel off.. Good luck and let us know if it works for you..

I had a similar problem until it finally gave up draining altogether. I took the drain pump apart and found that a quarter was jammed in the pump after it broke a vain off. I don't know how the quarter got past the basket but this was definitely my problem.

SOURCE: Maytag Washer will not spin
Pull the unit forwardand lean it back about 45 degrees. You'll have to play with it a bit, but once it's far enough out, it will lean back without you having to hold it. Remove and inspect the belt(s) are they in good condition? Next, check the pulleys (wheels) underneath. Do they turn? One is for your pump, one is for your transmission and one is for the motor. (in case one doesn't turn, you'll know what portion needs to be worked on). Also check the track on your pulley the belt sits in. Is it dammaged or worn?
