I owned a maytag neptune washer and had to run dishwashing liquid thru it occasionally to get the smell to go away. Finally we learned about a new gasket retrofit that they were doing which was covered by the maytag company we called and they installed it for free and the smell stopped. I had that washer for about 10 years and probably spent as much fixing it over the years as it cost. I now have a whirlpool duet front loader and love it. no smell and not problems. Try the electric dish washer soap.

My washing machine sounds like it still has water in it when i spin it and it smells musty


Hi

The smell usually comes when the washer is unable to drain water completely, you can run your washer at its hottest temperature setting with 1 cup of vinegar inside the unit. After this take off the bottom front panel and clean it completely, also clean the drain hose and drain pump filter, the smell should disappear after doing all this. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Maytag front load washer - smell musty


the water in the unit is normal, to kill the smell when you are done doing wash for the day dampen a rag with bleach and whip down the door gasket. You can buy a cleaner called "afresh" it works as well. If your unit is a neptune check with maytag it might have a recall on the door gasket for growing mould

I noticed that my clothes are not smelling fresh, especially my towels. The washer has a musty smell even after running it with bleach. When I shake the washer when it is empty I can hear water. Is this...


if it is a Maytag neptune YES that sound is normal. especially when you rotate the drum by hand that is your balance ring you are hearing. Do you only use liquid detergent? if yes this might be your problem. it leaves a film around the drum. i would run 3 wash cycles with bleach and hot water. and then at least once a month with hot water and bleach to keep it fresh and also leave the door open so that it can air dry oder causeing bacteria love moisture.

Clothes washer does not drain completley


Clear the filter and the pipes between it and the pump, tip the machine back and look under you will see a black pipe from the filter to the pump. Simply remove the pipe and clear it and the pump while your there.

Water seems to be left in bottom of washer


This is a Maytagism for this style of washer.
Quick solution... take a terry towel and wipe out the standing water in the front door seal area and when you're done, toss the towel into the wash load.
Also make the loads a little smaller...it will keep the smell from reoccuring as much.
