Question about Maytag Neptune Washer

1 Answer

Re: Maytag Neptune Washer. Loaded 2 jackets (whites requiring bleach), added usual Gain detergent (granules), plus small amt. of bleach in dispenser, then started cycle. Then poured bleach into machine from top and am getting a "do" or "FL" message. Machine has water, but did I interrupt something. Haven't used this before with bleach and guessed wrong... Can I get machine to proceed?

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.

    I have a Maytag Neptune 1st Generation and the washer door gasket always molds, how to clean and how to prevent molding


    The Maytag MAH300AWW was the first generation front load washer. Your MAH5500BWW is a much newer version and has a boot drain and door venting to minimize the mold. Just be sure your drain (bottom center of the boot) is clear. Use a solution of 1/2 cup of Granular Dishwashing Detergant and 1 cup of Chlorine Bleach added directly into the tub. Run the machine through a hot was cycle (with NO clothes inside) every few months and this will reduce or eliminate the mold.

    Washer is not cleaning the clothes. Use Tide he with soft water, whites with bleach and clothes are dirty looking. White socks still dark shade on bottoms.Washer is a Neptune 5500


    Probably not a fault of the washer. Where (city/state) are you buying your detergent? The reason I ask is that in the western US they have banned certain ingredients in detergents. The results aren't pretty. So far, they still sell the good stuff in Idaho if you have a way to get it.

    Clothes are not clean How can I take washer aprt to clean soap dispenser???


    Dear carolesergy,
    Welcome to fixya

    You sad,My clothes get dingier ever week from using my washer especially the towels. They are now Grey and not white

    1.Here are some ideas and INFO!
    2.How old is your MAH5500B washer and did you buy it new?
    3.Do you use HE High Efficient detergent?
    4.Do you ONLY put the proper amount of detergent directed to be used by the manufacturer?
    5.Using to much detergent will degrade the seal and eventually destroy the bearings.
    Which will cause oil to leak out on your clothes and sometimes make gray stains on them !
    6.Is there tiny gray oily pieces in the wash and on clothes?
    7.Look closely at your rubber seal around the opening. Is this worn or deteriorating away slowly due to bleach or detergent? Is it a gray or black rubber?

    Please have patients and bear with me, with all these questions I propose to you here!
    "
    I am searching with your eyes for things I have seen in the past about this model"

    Here are some reasons this may also happen!

    How large of a load can I wash in my Maytag Neptune washer?
    * The tub can be loaded completely full with dry, unfolded clothes. However, do not pack the tub tightly. If the load is heavily
    soiled it is very important not to overload the washer.



    My whites are not as white as I’d like.What can I do?
    * Wash white loads using the cotton/sturdy fabric selection. Select the hot wash/cold rinse temperature setting and put 3/4
    cup of chlorine bleach in the bleach dispenser. The bleach will be dispensed in the final minutes of the wash providing for
    optimal whitening. Maytag recommends a hot water wash temperature of 120-140° F (49°- 60° C).

    Also:
    *The lint filter in side the machine may be clogging with dirty lint!
    *Which means you needed service!

    I hope one of these solutions is the reason!
    Let me know how you do!
    Huuum

    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 !
