It is normal to have residual water in the drain lines and drain pump following a wash cycle. This is the low point of the drain cycle and gravity will ALWAYS cause some water to be there. As long as the water is not visible in the spin basket, and the washer is properly draining during the wash and rinse cycles, you have nothing to worry about.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

Why isn't the maytag neptune draining? when you spin the barrel you can hear water?


if you do not see water in the tube and the clothes have spun out enough to go into the dryer when the washer cycle finishes the washer has drained out all of the water the water you hear in the tub when the door is open and you spin the tub with your hand that liquid is in the sealed balance ring , that is a sealed channel around the front of the tub to help the machine stay balanced it does not come out

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

Neptune stackable -water left below the drum after cycle complete


Some water yes. a lot of water no.As long as the water stays below the wash tub you should be OK.
You might want to pull your water pump off and check for a restriction.

Standing water in the barrel


Unfortunatly this is normal for the neptune washers and there is no solution other than to use the machine often so the water does not stagnate.

Water left pooled inside maytag neptune front loading washer


Possible explanation: Some water is left in the hose going up to the drainpipe b/c the pump can only pump water with water, not air... so when the last bit of water is sucked up, it 'stays' just the other side of the pump exit nozzle and keeps the drain tubefilled. This water gradually leaks thru the drain exit valve and back into the machine, sometimes siphoning standing water in the drain trap with it.

The valve is either electric solenoid or plastic/rubber clapper in a cylinder. Your call whether to fix or not depending on ease and cost. Probably a $20.00 part.

Cheers!

Maytag neptune suddenly doesn't drain the water and I get a nice mess on my new tile floor.


You will need to unplug the machine,

Remove the front panel and look for the pump,

Your pump may or maynot have a button trap. Be prepared for water have towels available to soak it up. Try bailing the machine out before you remove the button trap on the pump.

Unscew the button trap and remove all the debris.

if you machine doesnt have a button trap, remove the hose going to the pump and look for bobby pin, nails, screws, etc.

The worse case is you burnt out the pump and will need to replace it.

Maytag neptune dryer wont restart mde 3000 aya


Your dryer needs a new motor. It should cost about $200-250 including labor. Call a local repairman - not a national company. Give him the model number and ask him to bring the motor with him.

Good luck!
