Neptune top load holes in clothes

Lots of small holes in clothes after washing them

Posted by on

  • Maralal May 04, 2008

    Our front loader also puts small holes in our clothes.

  • Lynne McNees Nov 21, 2008

    We have had the same problem - at first I thought tht my clothes were just cheap - now I realize that it is either the Neptune washer or drying center. I have little tears/holes in everything - any ideas?

You may have something between your basket (the area where you put your clothes) and your tub (the part that holds all the water in. Check all of the holes in your basket to see if you have something sticking/ protruding out of one of them. You might also have a hole that has been bent casuing a rough edge. Next pull back the edge of your boot (the gray ,rubber part in the front) Do you have any forighn objects in there? Finnaly for the washer, check the bottom of the door. A rough area on the bottom can cause the same problem. You might also want to check your dryer. Over time the seals (the gray rings in the front and back when you look in your dryer can be worn or have a forign object caught in them. Both will cause clothes to snag and tear.

My clothes never come out of this maytag neptune top loader machine clean. they are also sooooo wrinkled that everything needs ironing desperately, sometimes my towels are twisted into knots.it definitely...


My clothes also get all twisted. I found that if I wash smaller loads, it doesn't happen. Try smaller loads...if that doesn't work, I don't know what to tell you.

Mildew smell


PLEASE KKEP IN MIND THAT THE MAYTAG NEPRUNE FRONT LOAD WASHER IS WHAT GOT MAYTAG IN TROUBLE!!!!!!
Whirlpool bought MAYTAG about 3 year ago.

THe mold is because of the rubber boot in the front of the door. PLEASE check to see if the rubber seal has a small hole in the lower bottom of the seal to let small portions of water drain out. If you DO NOT have this small hole, you need to replace the rubber boot with one that has a hole.
NOW, WORD TO THE WISE and this is what I tell ALL FOLKS that have a FRONTLOAD WASHING MACHINE:
AFTER you washer in the washer LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN so that the washer can ventilate and remove any moisture that is within.
ALSO, every 2 months, get a WHITE CLOTH with WARM WATER and a littl;e bit of BLEACH and CLEAN THE RUBBER BOOT!!!!!!

check to see if theres anything in the tub that feels sharp. Make sure theres nothing stuck in the small holes. Also, check out the rubber boot. DOes it look worn? what clothes are getting holes? is it all of them? Colors only? Whites only? Do a maual check on the inside of it with a flashlight to make sure no sharp objest are stuck aor what not?

Black, tar-like spots on some clothes after wash


Hi
Its probably coming from the outer drum of your machine. That's what holds the water. Your inner drum, what you see, is full of holes and allows the water to pass through in the drum and wash the clothes. that outer drum gets crud in it which then passes through the holes onto your clothes. the easiest way to get rid of it is to get a product called "affresh" from W mart or the big Hardware chains and follow the directions. Good Luck

Maytag Neptune Washer dispenser unit has mold and mildew inside top of dispenser compartment.


You can pour the bleach in the drawer every time you do white loads and it will stay clear too!
Just flush it out good before you do colored clothes or you may get a small bleach spot on a red shirt !
