Likely soap or such has bound it .
wash it in hot water. or wrap hot towels around it
the heat will also make it expand.

I need to fix the door of my Maytag Neptune Washing machine. It was off-balance with a bit of water in it and the door would NOT unlock so I pried it open with a screw-driver. Now it will not close


my advice is too leave it alone till the repair guy comes out

chill with the still

and let it alone
youll need to get spares i think to replace the bent metal perhaps
most often make do and mend

but better to let the repair guy do it
he is there anyway so leave him too it
foot the bill and livd and learn
dont pry things open!!!
if your locked out its for a reason

!!!!!!! stay mr patient always

Can i run my ultima wma74 off the cold feed only?


Hi Naomi from retired Englishman in SW France,

In a word- YES!
You will need to purchase, from a hardware (?) store, a 'Y' adapter. Upside down the single end (internal thread) screws into the cold water supply and the hot and cold washer pipes screw into the double end (external threads). The washer is fooled into thinking it has hot and cold! When it expects hot, it opens its hot valve but instead gets the cold water and has to heat it up. It will therefore take longer for the machine to do the washing. When it wants cold for rinses, it opens its cold valve and gets the same water! Simple ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck,
John C

The soap tray is not getting water.


the water valve is in open?if is open remove the hose connecting to water valve and clean the screen filter,is is clean check the water valve if is running,try to open again the unit with normal operation check the water valve if the valve is not sound its means the water valve is worn out and need to replace for the new one,easy to remove by using screw driver,buy same model were the brand locate in your area and fix it,but much better to call the authorized service center to fix its more safe and comfortable to you also have a warranty after fix it.

Water leaking from water pump cap


Not that I know of. All sources I have found show this as one complete unit which includes the pump motor, reservoir housing and clean out trap (cover). The cost varies between $70 and $120. What I would recommend, before you assume you need to replace anything, is to remove the cover and clean the threads on the housing and cap really well and dry them. Then, apply a film of petrolium jelly on the threads and screw the cap back in place nice and snug. If there is an o-ring, make sure it is not torn or kinked, and is seated in the its groove properly. NOTE: O-rings can be found at any automotive or hardware store is you need a replacement. If there are no visible cracks on the reservoir cap, this should work. I would recommend that you remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and use a wet/dry shop vac to drain all the residual water in the tub and drain lines BEFORE removing the cap. This will minimize any clean up you may have. I hope this helps you. Let me know what you find.
