Is there any kind of recall on a Maytay front loading washer, model #MAH6500AWW? I am having problems with mildew in the rubber part and terrible smelling water in the bottom.


The cleaning process for your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer, for example, requires some time and patience. Over time, your washing machine will need to be cleaned. It can develop offensive odors through multiple wash cycles. This makes the washing machine less effective at cleaning the clothes you put into it. Maytag offers some sound advice for cleaning your front-loading washing machine.
  • Pour 2/3 cup of liquid chlorine bleach into the bleach compartment of the dispenser drawer of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer.

  • 2

    Run your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer on the "Clean Washer" setting. Press "Start" to start the cycle.

  • 3

    Leave the door open once the cycle is complete to allow the inside of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer to ventilate and air dry.

  • 4

    Look closely at the gray seal of the Maytag Neptune front-loading washer's door opening. This seal can have a buildup of debris or detergent residue.

  • 5

    Spray the seal with an all-purpose appliance cleaner and scrub away any debris or residue with a cloth or scrubbing pad. Dry with a clean cloth.

  • 6

    Remove the soap dispenser drawer. Press the release lever and lift it out to clean.

  • 7

    Take out the inserts and rinse them and the drawer thoroughly.

  • 8

    Wash with a mild soap and cloth to remove any residue. Dry thoroughly before replacing.


  • ALWAYS LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN WHEN NOT IN USE! This prevents the mold and mildew from forming once you get it cleaned.

    My Neptune front load washer has a foul odor. I have tried the HE tablets, wiping it, etc. but it smells bad. When I spin it with my hand, there is water in the background. How do I get rid of the smell?...


    Add 3 cups of Sugar Soap concentrate. Then fill the machine and leave it for 24 hrs.
    Then put it through wash cycle with no clothes.

    If not fixed........machine has to be stripped apart and manually cleaned.

    Sometimes there is water that fills in my washer after I use it. It does not happen right away but by the next day. I don't know the model but I do know this is an old washer....gold....I have had it for...


    Q - My washer seems to keep filling  with water, the water keeps coming in the washer and going out the drain without the washermotor running.
    A - This often is a drain hose that is too low or a drain hose that has been pushed too far down inside the stand pipe....the water is actually siphoning out of the washer. Do not "seal" the drain hose to the house plumbing pipe, this will also allow the water to be siphoned out.

    Dirty sock smell


    My suggestion is to contact Maytag. I have the same problem. Maytag can tell you what you can do to reduce the odor. I think the problem originates from the fact that the drum always has water in it and the rubber seal has a bad smell.
