Question about Maytag MAH6500 Neptune Front Loading Washer w/Built in Water Heater
Yes, it is called the balance ring and it does have liquid in it. You can hear it slosh around when you rotate the tub by hand.
Make sure you replace your door latch wax motor if you have a Maytag Neptune MAH3000, MAH4000, MAH5500A or a 2000 stacker. If you don't replace it, your machine control board will be damaged (The R11 resistor and the Q6 triac) and your machine will not spin. You can purchase a R11 & Q6 repair kit if your control board has suffered this wax motor failure at www.neptunewaxmotor.com but you need to be proactive and replace it before the failure...
Note: The MAH5500B's are not included because they use a real solenoid in the door latch assembly instead of the wax motor.
Announcment - You can replace your Neptune bearings without replacing the $500 outer tub! See www.neptunebearing.com for information and a video that shows you how to perform the operation...

This is normal to hear water sloshing under the drum when machine is done washing and you spin the drum. This is part of their water balance method to help spinning procedure. I called a Maytag repair shop and they helped with my question.
