Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

We tried to start a load of wash today, but the drain hose was frozen. Water started coming out everywhere. We got the drain unfrozen, but the washer seems to still not be working. What do you think is wrong with it?

The pump is probably split open from being frozen and the machine senses this and wont let it start

Hoover Nextra HNF2127 washing machine. Lights flashing at finish


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The start and pre-wash usually flash due to a clogged drain hose or the water pump. You’ll need to drain the water out of the base and also check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine). If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

When start washing, filling water comes out from


This is most likely due to having the height of the drain hose too low in the drain pipe so the water siphons out as the machine tries to fill up. This will eventually lead to an F20 error displaying saying that the machine was not able to fill with enough water in the 6 minutes allowed by the on board controller in the Whirlpool.

The solution is to measure the height of the top of the arch of the drain hose or direct connecting point to a drain and make sure that his is at least 32 inches and no mort than 36 inches from the floor.

How far should the drain hose be put into the waste pipe?I was painting behind the washer. I did not notice that I may have pulled out the drain hose, but during a wash cycle water started to spray...


Most have a hooked shape which can't be inserted too far. If yours is the flexible type it should be from 4 to 6 inches. If it's too far it can siphon the water out of the tub during the wash.

Water runs straight through to drain hose


Has the drain hose been moved?  The outlet of the hose needs to be higher than the top of the tub to prevent water siphoning out.
