Hello.
You have a bad water valve on your unit. It is too weak to close all the way and letting small amounts of water by. You will need to have it replaced. The part number for your water valve is 22003245 if the first two numbers of your serial number are lower than 82. If they are 83 and up order part # 22003834. I have posted a diagram below.

Does it fill when the machine is powered down?

If it does then the fill valve is stuck open and needs replacing

If it does not then you need to check the pressure switch and the air bell on the outer drum which probably has a ball of jellyfied soap in it.

If you take the back off you will see a thin plastic or rubber hose going from the bottom of the drum to a small flying saucer type object.

If you pull the hose off the bottom connection and blow into it you should hear a clicking noise from the pressure switch.

If it clicks then clean out the air bell and refit the hose .

If it does not click then get a new pressure switch

A repairman would test it live but that is not recommended for untrained people

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Front Load Washer Model MAH4000AWW low last spin

two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news

    SOURCE: Problem with the Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front

    Hi

    Lr means locked rotor, this issue occurs due to locked rotors, you'll need to check the rotor wiring and windings. If the wiring is good and windings are not burnt then you'll need to replace your motor and motor control board. These are sold as one unit, it is a 3 phase motor and one of the phases is bad as a little power surge can damage the boards. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

    Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

    This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning (not closing completely) water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
    Take all power off the washer then turn one or the other off and see which one is causing the problem. Sorry but it needs replacing. If it only happens when there is power supplied to the washer, a service call is required to confirm that it is not something else- like the control board not feeding the correct voltage to the valve ;-0(

    If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
    Thanks and good luck!

    Tub fills with water


    replace water valve in the washer. Serial number is needed to find the correct part number. It's likely 22003834, but call any parts supplier with model/serial numbers to verify.
