    Hi Dixie, in regards to the white residue on your clothing, this could possibly be caused by the interaction of body soils with detergent can result in the formation of a residue that is distinct from lint but may appear similar to undissolved detergent. This type of residue has a tendency to accumulate within the folds and wrinkles of garments and may be widely distributed throughout the fabric load and on individual garments. Residue resulting from the interaction of body soils and detergent may actually be more prevalent with the use of warmer water, distinguishing it from typical undissolved detergent. Other causes if this residue could be from excessive lint or excessive detergent. We advise using an Affresh® clean washer cycle every thirty loads to ensure your washer is performing at the highest level and to use cold water to minimize the reaction with your detergent.

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.

    Hi We Have a ge front load washer and dryer and it seems that our clothes smell musty at times. I've tried leaving the door open on the washer when not in use. Could there be another prooblem??


    Try using vinegar, baking soda, or bleach in an empty load to counteract any residues left in onboard water. Also check for debris stuck in door baffle(rubber sleeve between door and tub).

    Kenmore 80 series washer leaves soap residue on clothes no matter


    After speaking with someone with trouble shooting experience in these matters, I now believe the problem lies NOT with the washer but with a bad batch of laundry detergent which fails to dissolve properly in the water.

    Clothing are left with lint after washing cycles


    Seperate fluffy linty clothes and wash those separately; never mix that stuff up. Also keep the dark and lights separate.I do a number of smaller loads that are in a lot of water; you get cleaner clothes and less wear. Overloads are hard on the washer and the clothes. Rots of Ruck.

    Maytag gas dryer taking too long to dry clothes


    Not too familliar with the gas temp either, but you should definitely take your lint filter out and clean it with soap and water. If you use dryer sheets, they can leave a clear film on your filter and it can be just as bad as a filter full of lint. Try this out, if it works, clean your filter periodically with soap and water to remove the chemical buildup.

    The lint is not being washed from machine. All dark clothing has lint residue. How can I rectify this problem please? Currently my husband using damp cloth has to wipe over black clothing extensively prior...


    the self cleaning lint filter seems to be clogged. before you replace it try this cheap/ easy remedy.
    • run a load with no clothes on high water level, hot water and a gallon or two of bleach.
    •  no soap. 
    • do an extra rinse after to make sure you rinse all the bleach away before putting more clothes in.
    the lint filter may be defective since it has always had this problem, but its worth a try.

    Crosley CAWC529JQ1 top load washer LEAVES LINT ON CLOTHING


    try washing on a shorter time as this washer may have too good of wash action and the lint is fabric coming off your clothing
    add more soap powder and do not buy the cheapest soap as the soap is important in the washing cycle of your machine
    towels that are not too soiled brobably need 6 minutes at most on wash
    if this machine has a delicate wash cycle use that for tee shirts etc
    water pressure is important in rinse cycles
    do you have high pressure and water only trickles in check water inlets on back of machine where the hoses screw on
    good luck
