Your water inlet valve is probably leaking by. If the water pressure is too, or if there is sediment build inside the valve, sometimes the solenoids will not close properly. Try cleaning the valve to see if this helps. If not, I would recommend replacing it. Depending on which valve you have, repairclinic.com has two listed for this model washer for $20 to $30. Let me know if this helps, or if you need further assistance.

MY MAYTAG FRONT LOAD AT TIME WILL FILL WHEN WASHER IS NOT ON OR WILL DRAIN AND SPIN ON IT'S OWN


It may be the water inlet valve is not shutting off the flow 100%. If water keeps trickling in, even dripping, it will eventually fill the drum. Some models have a water level sensor that will run unit thru a drain cycle to prevent an overflow situation. Try checking the unit every 6 or 8 hours to see if there is a slow build up of water accumulation. Replace inlet valve if there is.

My 10+ year old Maytag Neptune washer has standing water behind the drum after the spin cycle


Griffin is correct but, I took it one step further and removed the front cover and rubber gasket and used a long thin brush after spraying white vinegar with a spray bottle and cleaned all the **** from around the drum. I use white vinegar with clothes once in a while to keep the drum free of built up soap and softner.Its a little work but trust me when you see all the stuff on the drum you will understand why the machine stinks. I also leave my soap tray door open all the time to allow air inside.

MAVT734EWW washer's water level not working, will just keep filling the drum and not stop even when open top door or click knob to off, have to turn water off at the source


A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.Replace the water valve with this part.

I have a neptune front loader and I have to pretreat every item before washing. My clothes do not come clean..I have contacted Maytag several times but no one has ever replied. Can you help The repairman...


Look up the model unit and compare it to the models appear on countless Google search pages. I had a set that bought new after the introduction and what became a PR nighmare for Maytag as they tried to ignore the problem. I was unaware of any problems since there was never a recall just at the very end when they offered to take the nice looking front loader in exchange for a new regular top loader. Mistake number 2. My washer started to get a bad smell and being single and doing maybe three loads a week. Then the washer drum started retaining water, not inside, but surrounding. The only way I discovered is while cleaning I turned the drum. Depending on who you asked, even some Maytag salesmen as well as the folks at the big home improvement stores and it was said to be the "oil" that lubercates the drum, water that was needed to turn the drum and a couple referenced this whole manufacturing defeact that could not be fixed. I decided I would stick with the oil or water concept becasue it made sense. One evening, I Googled. I was sick. It would only get worse and to contact Maytag, was a joke. Instead of waiting for the day to come, I listed the dryer for sale with the washer free. I disclosed everything and I could have sold a100 sets. The lady who bought the set for $650 was putting it to a flip/rehab project. I hope you are not the one who bought her property -- she wasn't planning to go into detail with the future buyer,
