Question about Maytag MLE2000 Front Load Stacked Washer / Dryer

Maytag MLE2000AYW not draining

Thanks in advance for your assistance. This is a Maytag model MLE2000AYW. The serial number is 5185960. I am not sure of the year 2006 maybe. This machine does not drain the water at the end of the cycle. I have removed the drain tubing after the pump. There is a flap at the joint where the tube attaches that was clogged. However after removing the clog the machine does not drain. When I opened the door after the machine stopped the water level was up to the top of the boot seal. I have run just the spin cycle for all the different wash cycles but the water remains. I also shut the water off to the machine and ran the spin cycle to no avail. Your comments are appreciated. Regards John

    Thanks TomZS. I did have a lot of water come out after the clog was removed. The visible water has been removed from the tub. I will now be removing the L shaped drain pipe coming out of the bottom of the tub. I will be sure to have plenty of towels around the machine and maybe a bucket. Thanks for this suggestion as I did not have towels at the ready when I removed the first tubing. If this does not remedy the problem could the problem be the pump and how do you recommend checking if the pump is working. I was also thinking it might be the control panel. How would I check to see if the panel is working properly. Thanks in advance for the assistance. Regards John

When you removed that clog after the pump you should have gotten very very wet if that was the only clog.
 You will have to bail the water out of the tub or pull it out with a shop vac,and even then when you remove the other side of the hose on the pump you'll get a couple gallons of water coming at you,throw some towels over the motor control on the right front corner so it doesn't get wet and have more ready for the gush of water coming out.
 Throw rugs were notorious for clogging these hoses up also check the out going hose from the pump to the drain,if you have the heavy rubber hose run something through it to make sure it is cleared out.
 and if it was throw rugs your going to want to fill it and drain it several times when you get it draining again to make sure it is all cleared out of the machine,if it drains into a standpipe be careful it doesn't clog your pipes that stuff is like cement.

    The pump will usually hum very slightly even if it can't move you want to look inside the pump and make sure the plastic impeller has not come loose from the shaft,and if you have a test meter you can put on  spin and test the leads going to the pump to make sure you have power going to it.

     But if you didn't get flooded with water the first time,you didn't get all the clog out.

  • TomZS Sep 27, 2009

    This unit has two control boards the one on the bottom is the motor control there is another under the top panel in the front right corner.but don,t lift the panel without taking out all the screws in the top panel I have never seen one that would not run the drain pump,not spin maybe but they always drain.

    If your in doubt the pump runs on 120 volts unplug the existing harness and use an old extension cord with two female connectors on the end to hook up and plug it into the wall.

Determining the Age of Your Maytag Appliance


This advice applies to all appliances manufactured by Maytag. Determining the manufactured date of most appliances is accomplished by looking at the SERIAL NUMBER. On Maytag appliances this is determined by the following method:

The LAST two letters in the serial number identifies the date code.

Example: 123456FY

The 1st Letter is the YEAR.

A – 1978/2002
B – 1966/1990
C – 1979/2003
D – 1967/1991
E – 1980/2004
F – 1968/1992
G – 1981/2005
H – 1969/1993
J – 1982/2006
K – 1970/1994
L – 1983/2007
M – 1971/1995
N – 1984/2008
P – 1972/1996
Q – 1985/2009
R – 1973/1997
S – 1986/2010
T – 1974/1998
U – 1987/2011
V – 1975/1999
X – 1988/2012
Y – 1976/2000
Z – 1977/2001

The 2nd Letter is the MONTH

A – JAN
B – JAN
C – FEB
D – FEB
E – MAR
F – MAR
G – APR
H – APR
J – MAY
K – MAY
L – JUN
M – JUN
N – JUL
P – AUG
Q – JUL
R – SEP
S – AUG
T – OCT
U – SEP
V – NOV
W – OCT
X – DEC
Y – NOV
Z – DEC

NOTE: Some later model Maytag appliances are manufactured by Whirlpool. The serial numbers may be in a different format. Check the MODEL number for any of the following prefixes:

106, 110, 198, 562, 664, 665.

These prefixes indicate the manufacturer as Whirlpool.

Override auto shut off


Since you have the model number, get the serial number and look online for the instruction manual. They might charge you for it, but you will have it. MODEL AND SERIAL NUMBER BOTH, ARE A MUST BEFORE YOU LOOK IT UP. Or call Maytag to get another one.

What year was the 110.28812790 washer made?


The dates of manufacture are determined by the SERIAL numbers on the appliance. The following links explain:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2880489-determining_age_whirlpool_appliance

Your Kenmore is manufactured by Whirlpool. The first two numbers in the serial number identify the WEEK it was manufactured. The digit preceeding the first set of numbers, identfy the YEAR.

http://www.fixya.com/support/r2880528-determining_age_maytag_appliance

On Maytag models, the last two letters in the serial number determine the date of manufacture. The first letter is the YEAR, the second letter is the MONTH.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I'm not sure about some of those appliances but ApplianceArt.com maybe able to help you. They sell stainless panels as well as the Softmetal adhesive stainless that's been on HGTV's "I Want that," "Design on a Dime," and "Real Estate Intervention." And I think some others.
