Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

Open Question

My Maytag MAH3000 Front Loader Washer leaks a ton of water. It seems that the door does not shut completely or it does not seal off. When the water reaches about halfway up the door level it just starts spilling onto the floor.

    SO my wax motor has a brown accuator tip. Could that be causing the problem with the door leaking water? If so do I just need to replace the wax motor or could the problem be more than that? Sorry for all the questions.

Check the door seal for tears and the drain boot from tub to drain boot for anything that might have put a hole in like a piece of metal from an under wire bra which front loads will spin so fast that the wires come out of the bras.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,


Sorry but with internal leaking it is virtually impossible for anybody on this FixYa forum to guess remotely what is wrong with your washer- apart from the fact that it appears to need a new front door seal.
You really need to call in a service engineer.

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

We are having a leak on the bottom of the front loader door on the wash cycle


Check the door seal. There is a boot drain on the seal that may be clogged. This drain allows the water to drain out of the seal when water gets in there. You may need to replace the seal. HEre is a link to the part you will need.

Sometimes there is water that fills in my washer after I use it. It does not happen right away but by the next day. I don't know the model but I do know this is an old washer....gold....I have had it for...


Q - My washer seems to keep filling  with water, the water keeps coming in the washer and going out the drain without the washermotor running.
A - This often is a drain hose that is too low or a drain hose that has been pushed too far down inside the stand pipe....the water is actually siphoning out of the washer. Do not "seal" the drain hose to the house plumbing pipe, this will also allow the water to be siphoned out.

My Maytag Neptune fnt loader Model# MAH9700AWW


I have a Maytag neptune mah8700aww
With mine the large grey rubber seal that seals at door slipped off! When this happens if you do not put back on correctly it will leak or even poor out the front center bottom of the door! My husband fixed it. But it still leaked really bad! I just took a couple of min. to refit the seal and it does not leak at all now! maybe your seal is not placed around the edge correctly! as it is easy to place it wrong! good luck!! keep my email address if I was helpfull!! We can always share problems and solutions for our neptunes in the future ! good luck
