Question about Maytag MAH6500 Neptune Front Loading Washer w/Built in Water Heater

1 Answer

Clothes are still soaking wet after spin cycle and the wash cycle is complete.

The clothes are still wet after the spin cycle. The washing drum turns with a lot less effort when I turn it by hand leading me to suspect that I have a broken belt.

Would you please let me know if this is the case and how to go about fixing it myself. Specifically how to remove the Washing machines cover so that i can get to the suspect part.

If the drum spins in the spin cycle, then the belt can't be broken. However, if the drum does not move at all in wash and spin, then the belt can be broken or just fallen off. You will have to remove the back plate and fit the belt back on the drum pulley and the motor pulley. If belt is ok check the motor brushes, they could be worn. They are located one on either side of the motor and identifiable by a single wire that connects to each one. You could also have a restriction in one of the drain hoses which is not allowing all the water to drain out.

Soaking wet clothes after spin cycle

Check and choose a longer spin cycle and see if the fault changes. If so the SPIN cycle is too less or there is less action or speed in the cycle, check the motor speed, check the capacitor to the motor, the spindle friction - if so reset the spindle and drive.

Clothes still wet after washed

There could still be water in between the drums. Have a look at the filter, pump and all outlet pipes for a blockage. the excees water that you have when you have clothes in will be what's left in the clothes, wih the machine empty you may just be seeing what shows above the inner drum.

Washer is completing all cycles, but water from wash washer and clothes are still soaking wet. No water drains out.

check the Lid safety switch, if its shorted the spin cycle won't work, so your left with wet clothes ,, you can jumper the 2 wires together to test the switch , if that makes the cycle work, Replace that switch

Manf# MAV5000AWW My toploading washing machine goes through all cycles but the last spin cycle the clothes are still soaked and i have to sring the excess water out by hand

If the machine is not pumping out completely, it could mean a blocked drain hose or a faulty/blocked pump. This would explain wet clothes However if the mache is not actually spinning it will leave the clothes wet,as well. Check and ascertain which function is not working.........Nomess

We have a WFL 2090 UC Bosch Axxis Front end load washer. When we use the Power Wash option, the clothes are soaking wet when the cycle is completed. Are we supposed to use the Power Temp or Power Boost...

Are you sure that your washer spins? that your pump drains? You should not have this problem. Do you load your laundry properly (too much laundry- should not be more than 3/4 of the diameter of the drum)?

My clothe come out very wet at the end of the wash cycle

If the pump is clogged and can't release all the water it won't go into final high spin. Remove lower cover and locate coin catch and unscrew it. Water will come out, so be ready. If it's full of stuff, this is probably the problem.

Load remains wet after full cycle (including spin @ 1400 rpm)

Hi Paul, Assuming it is pumping out ok, Unplug the machine tip it back at an angle, underneath you will see a black hose that is attached to the bottom of the drum, remove this, take out the ball and discard it and remove anything that may be in the filter, replace the hose and try the machine.
