How do you clean a Maytag Neptune top loading washer

Tip: Prevent a Smelly Washer With Powdered Dishwasher Detergent

I have a great tip for making a smelly clothes washer smell fresh and clean, given to me by a Maytag repairman. Simply run dishwasher detergent powder, not liquid, through your machine with no clothing in it, about once or twice a month.
It works and it is cheaper than the specialized products that do the same thing. Use the same amount you would use of laundry detergent for your particular machine.

Splendide WD2100XC - The vent from machine to outside keeps plugging with lint. I cleaned it once - having to haul out the unit to do it, which was no easy task - and, now, within a few months of cleaning...

Maybe fan is not working properly, or restricted vent in the first place, causing it not to flow properly and lint gets hung up. Is vent hose fairly straight or does it go around a lot of curves?

I have a maytag neptune washer top load the washer stays in wash cycle and will not go to next cycle.

Clean out the pump. Ours was doing that as well, when our mechanic looked at it he could find nothing wrong with it so he looked at the pump and it was full of mud and junk. He said once it is cleaned out you have to run it twice a month empty to keep it clean. Ours has worked great since.

Wont spin. Called repair person, he said the "transmission" was not working and would cost $300 plus to fix. I paid $470 for the machine new may 2009. I thought washing machines lasted longer...

before we go to far you said the machine is only 19 months old if this is the case it should still be within warranty as all new machine have a standard 2 year warranty from the manufacturer where they will foot the bill for any repairs, if it cost u 470 and yor gonna pay 300 to fix it? its kinda a no brainer (no offense intended). think long term if it breaks jus once more and needs to b fixed and it costs over 170 you've just paid the same amount as it cost for a new one and if its breaking down at 19 months it is definatly gonna breakdown again. my professional advice go buy a brand new washer with an extended warranty, most people think extended warranty's are a trick to get you to pay an extra 50 bucks but it is well worth it in the long run

You probally have a front load washing machine. There is probally mildew in the wash tub & discharge hoses. Try washing an empty load with a hot water and a cup of vineagar and see if that helps with the odor. If it does, then repeat this once a month.

Smelly clothes after washing. We have one of the models that was recalled for the same problem. Maytag Neptune - MAH6500AWW

I have this problem with my Siemens machine, it is due to mainly running low temp washes and bateria building up in the hoses etc. (more prevalent if the machine is connected directly to the sink and not on a stand pipe). I run a 90 degree cycle every 4 weeks with the machine empty except for two capfuls of baby sterilisng fluid (approx half a mug) I buy stores own as it is cheaper than miltons. The first time I did mine I ran the cycle twice to be sure it was cleared out. My machine is six years old and the first smelly signs were when it was about a year old, I run the maintenance wash religiously ever 4 weeks and run a machine descaler such as oust thru every 4-6 months. Hope this helps. Roni. (ps don't be tempted to use bleach as it foams up and can cause more problems!!)

Washing Machine Leaked but seems ok now.

likely it was overfilled - and caused an unbalanced load that may have shifted the tub - allowing the gasket to leak.

Front loading Maytag Neptune doesnt drain all water

the washer has a low level of water in it at all times. it will never completely drain out unless you pump it. this is one of the reasons there is such a smell with these washers, i use vinegar in rinse cycle and i use bleach once sometimes twice a month to keep mold and mildew smell away.
