Question about Washing Machines

Maytag Washer, Model # MAH4000AWW (Neptune - front loader) appr. 4 yrs old

Picked up a used Maytag washer. Machine has a new board ($200.00) and is missing the detergent/bleach/softener cover.

After machine finnishes, bleach and softener compartments remain full of water, must remove that water in order to add bleach or fabric softener for the next load.

Was unloading machine and basket inadvertently turned, this revealed the tub underneath the basket still held a substantial amount water that was not discharged. Is this normal? If not, what can I do?

    You were right on the money about the missing dispenser cover.

    Also, thank you for setting my mind at ease regarding the water issue.

    My only regret, I just now found your web site.


    ps Merry Christmas

Hi john, There is a blue cover that i am suspecting you are missing from the softener/bleach dispenser. It fits over the two tubes in the dispenser and it siphons the water out. It is part number 22002266. Also the machine has a water filled balance ring. It is normal to hear sounds of water when the tub is turned. If you can see water in the spinner its a different story.

On my maytag neptune model # mah4000aww the spin cycle is extremely loud and I recently noticed that midway thru the cylce there must be a leak as a small amount of water is on the floor under the front...

Hello, it sounds like your Neptune's bearings and seal need replaced... See NeptuneBearing for more info on replacing your bearings and renting the special tool kit to save you time.

I see that you have a MAH4000 Neptune. Did you know that your machine shipped with a faulty door latch wax motor that will eventually damage the control board? See NeptuneHelpSong for a video that explains what happens when it fails. You can proactively upgrade your wax motor before it fails and prevent the failure to the control board.

I hope this helps...

When washing machine not being used the water drips into the washer tub, it is top loader about 12 yrs old

if the washer is filling up on it's own the water valve is bad,sediment gets inside it doesn't close all the way allowing water to leak through. they show two different valves,when you talk to your parts guy bive him the full model number off of the washer and they are asking for a series number either 83 or 87 so you get the correct valve

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

Neptune washer

Why?Do you understand that the bearings are locked into the outer tub and you have to replace that,the outer tub.Very expensive repair that will most likely be almost half the price you had paid for the machine new.My advise is DONT FIX this if you have a bearing problem ,because I honestly believe in letting the customer know the truth.Sorry, but a 15 year old re- conditioned Maytag will out last any Neptune ever made.

I think that you have a faulty motor. Are there any visible cracks in the stator? The rotor position sensor could also be faulty.
