Question about Maytag Washing Machines
This water that you are hearing is actually a calcium chloride solution in the tan/gray colored ring at the front of the stainless steel inner wash tub. This ring is called a balance ring and is made internally to force the solution to walk up stair step like chambers inside the ring to off set any off balance load conditions. So for example if you had only one garment in the tub and the machine tried to spin, the solution would be moved to the opposite side of the ring via the out of round motion the tub begins to make.
If you place your hand flat on the ring you will actually be able to feel the solution inside the ring move around.
This ring is present on all the "MAH" models.
IF this is not the answer to your question, feel free to comment back and I will tell you anything and everything you ever want to know about your machine.
Thanks and Good luck!

Pour 2/3 cup of liquid chlorine bleach into the bleach compartment of the dispenser drawer of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer.
Run your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer on the "Clean Washer" setting. Press "Start" to start the cycle.
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.
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.
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.
Remove the soap dispenser drawer. Press the release lever and lift it out to clean.
Take out the inserts and rinse them and the drawer thoroughly.
Wash with a mild soap and cloth to remove any residue. Dry thoroughly before replacing.
