Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
Look up the model unit and compare it to the models appear on countless Google search pages. I had a set that bought new after the introduction and what became a PR nighmare for Maytag as they tried to ignore the problem. I was unaware of any problems since there was never a recall just at the very end when they offered to take the nice looking front loader in exchange for a new regular top loader. Mistake number 2. My washer started to get a bad smell and being single and doing maybe three loads a week. Then the washer drum started retaining water, not inside, but surrounding. The only way I discovered is while cleaning I turned the drum. Depending on who you asked, even some Maytag salesmen as well as the folks at the big home improvement stores and it was said to be the "oil" that lubercates the drum, water that was needed to turn the drum and a couple referenced this whole manufacturing defeact that could not be fixed. I decided I would stick with the oil or water concept becasue it made sense. One evening, I Googled. I was sick. It would only get worse and to contact Maytag, was a joke. Instead of waiting for the day to come, I listed the dryer for sale with the washer free. I disclosed everything and I could have sold a100 sets. The lady who bought the set for $650 was putting it to a flip/rehab project. I hope you are not the one who bought her property -- she wasn't planning to go into detail with the future buyer,

Tips for a great answer:
Pour 2/3 cup of liquid chlorine bleach into the bleach compartment of the dispenser drawer of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer.
Run your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer on the "Clean Washer" setting. Press "Start" to start the cycle.
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.
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.
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.
Remove the soap dispenser drawer. Press the release lever and lift it out to clean.
Take out the inserts and rinse them and the drawer thoroughly.
Wash with a mild soap and cloth to remove any residue. Dry thoroughly before replacing.
