Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
We have had our neptune washer for almost 4 years. This odor began about 3 months ago and is getting so bad. It is unbearable and all my clothes stink!
If you read the Care and Cleaning section of your owner's manual you will find that you are supposed to perform some specific tasks every 60 to 120 days in order to keep the interior of your washer clean. In your case I would suspect that you've neglected the chlorine rinse cycle that it mentions. Fill the bleach resovoir with chlorine bleach and run a full cycle with hot water with no clothes in it. This will break up any mold that has likely started growing inside your basin.

Question ? are you using WELL WATER OR CITY WATER, If you are using well water that could be the problem if city water and no fitler ( in the line ) Sulphur can smell like bad eggs, or Iron.
I suggust an in line filter ,if handy you can do it yourself ( with help from Home Depot) or hire a plumber, to put in two filters , one for odors and the other for taste if you drink the same water. Once installed you only have to replace them about every 3 months ( depending on how bad the condition is . For real bad problems a water softer maybe be installed ( By a Lic. Plumber)
