FIRST switch off and unplug.

Pull machine out and remove lid by undoing self tapping screws at the top back. May have to slide lid back a bit to lift off.

Internal catch mechanism will be reachable from top for manual release. You may need someone to push door inwards while you release catch.

Good luck

Broken Glass Sound


OK, who washing the dishes in the CLOTHES Machine?! Broken glass sound? You are sure your neighbor isn\'t playing a trick on you! I am going to guess that you have either a BAD bearing, in which it is time to look at Other Machines as an option. I mean if the clothes are getting clean and it drains all the water? Just shut the door! No I can\'t say that...Can I? Whirlpools (in my opinion) are one of the Best. The problems we are having today are these Front Load Machines are a Piece of Crap! They do not use enough water. You have to use Hi Definition 3X\'s more expensive soap..that doesn\'t Clean the garments. This sounds BAD. I had the same problem and bought a USED Whirlpool Top machine for $150 dollars from a guy who"Likes" to tinker/work on them and three years later...Going Strong! Sorry I could not help you

Is there any kind of recall on a Maytay front loading washer, model #MAH6500AWW? I am having problems with mildew in the rubber part and terrible smelling water in the bottom.


The cleaning process for your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer, for example, requires some time and patience. Over time, your washing machine will need to be cleaned. It can develop offensive odors through multiple wash cycles. This makes the washing machine less effective at cleaning the clothes you put into it. Maytag offers some sound advice for cleaning your front-loading washing machine.
  • Pour 2/3 cup of liquid chlorine bleach into the bleach compartment of the dispenser drawer of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer.

  • 2

    Run your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer on the "Clean Washer" setting. Press "Start" to start the cycle.

  • 3

    Leave the door open once the cycle is complete to allow the inside of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer to ventilate and air dry.

  • 4

    Look closely at the gray seal of the Maytag Neptune front-loading washer's door opening. This seal can have a buildup of debris or detergent residue.

  • 5

    Spray the seal with an all-purpose appliance cleaner and scrub away any debris or residue with a cloth or scrubbing pad. Dry with a clean cloth.

  • 6

    Remove the soap dispenser drawer. Press the release lever and lift it out to clean.

  • 7

    Take out the inserts and rinse them and the drawer thoroughly.

  • 8

    Wash with a mild soap and cloth to remove any residue. Dry thoroughly before replacing.


  • ALWAYS LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN WHEN NOT IN USE! This prevents the mold and mildew from forming once you get it cleaned.

    How to operate the washing machines front load washer brandt bf850


    Hi,
  • Open the front door and load the clothing into the washing machine. Check the owner's manual for the maximum load size. Overloading the washing machine may interfere with its ability to spin the clothes and rinse them clean.

  • Fill the detergent receptacle on the front of the washing machine, making sure not to fill it past the indicated line. Always use a liquid detergent that is designed for front-loading washing machines.
  • Add bleach or fabric softener, if needed. Most front-loading washing machines have a section for fabric softener inside the detergent receptacle. Check the instructions on the bleach to find out when it should be added to the washing machine.
  • Close the front door of the washing machine and make sure it locks into place. The machine usually will not turn on unless the door is securely locked.
  • Check the owner's manual to find out how to select the different options and wash cycles. As a general rule, use warm or cold water for most types of colored clothing. Hot water should only be used when washing white cotton items.
  • Start the front-loading washing machine and let it run through the entire wash, rinse and spin cycles before opening the door to unload the clothing.

  • Please rate this solution. Regards.

    Water under front loading machine


    you really have to open up anything that you can see the inside to watch where the water could be dripping. check if you can open the back panel or the top cover, just to peek inside.

    could be on a loose hose or a broken hose or a water pump seal leaking.
