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.

Smelly clothes


Maytag had a big problem with the rubber boot in the front of the washer.They redesigned it to drain better so water would not remain in the bottom and get moldy smelling.Open the door and look down in the boot with a flashlight.Make sure if there are drain holes in the bottom that they are clear and not clogged with soape or lint.Put a couple of old towels in the machine and a little soap and twice as much clorine bleach as normal and run a cycle.It should help.It is also good to leave the door opened between washes if possible.

I have sour mildew smell problem with my clothes


Look inside the door to the gray rubber ring gasket thingy. Pull apart the sides and look in. Betcha a dollar to a donut there's mold in there. It's a gross, nasty problem whirlpool customer service doesn't give a damn about.That's where water sets after wash cycles. There are tablets call "Affresh" which can be run with hot water for a cycle to attempt to clean out the mold/mildew. Not cheap, not fair, and probably will only be a start to a maintenance type cure if you've had the washer for awhile. May take some manual labor with bleach as well. NOT a sanitary washer. This is an unbelieveable problem with a washer. Piece of ****.

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.

Maytag front loader washing machine. Mould


How old is the washer? Did you try straight bleach on a towel and placed over the "mold" spot for about 5 minutes, be sure to wear gloves. Then scrub with a small brush being careful not to splatter bleach on yourself and rinse well. May need to replace the seal. I always leave the door cracked open after every use to "dry" out the inside and the boot. I also leave the drawer pulled out when not in use for that area to dry out as well. I have never had mold on the door seal of my Neptune washers, only the water holes above the dispenser drawer.

Neptune washer detergent department that is on the lid


use vinegar in cleaning it! soap, as it is made of mostly soda dissolves in vinegar.
