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.

well the final spin does go faster than the other cycles pending on the age you may want to tilt it over check under it to see if you see any grease on the floor if so your transmission could be getting ready to go out. and make sure your not over loading the washer

You can hear water behind the drum when you spin


I don't believe you have a problem with your washer. It is NORMAL to have residual water in the drain lines and drain pump following a wash cycle. You will be able to hear the water sloshing around if you move the drum or drain lines. This is the lowest point of the drain cycle and gravity will ALWAYS cause some water to be there. As long as the water is not visible in the spin basket inside the drum, and the washer is properly draining during the wash and rinse cycles, you have nothing to worry about.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

Water pressure switch adjustment or clogged. Check the small connecting hose to the switch body.

Final spin command signal generates from this part only.

Water still in machine


Depending on how high your drain hose is some of the water after the final spin can drain back into the outer tube of the machine. This wont hurt anything but when not using the maching, not a bad idea to leave the door ajared to prevent the washer from giving off a bad odour,

Maytag Neptune makes loud drums like sound 5 min before it stops.


its probably because of the way the clothes are in it. you have to make sure the clothes arent leaning to one side and that they are evenly set up. otherwise when it goes into the spin cycle itll lean and hit the side of the washers inside and make it shake and do what you said it was doing.

Maytag neptune MLG2000AWW does not turn off at end of spin cycle


d sounds as if your having a timer issue here. not recognizing the end of cycle and entering a new one ( bad timer).. as far as time of unlocking this is normal, theres a wax motor holding the door shut for i believe 3 min's.. and the water sloshing sounds is also normal they use a "water filled" balance ring around the perimeter of tub to help with the overall balance of machine

My maytag neptune washer will not perform the final spin cycle. Therefore the clothes are still wet. Any solutions


Maytag washer parts, GE washer parts, and other brand names on the market are all designed to work interdependently with each other. This system starts to break down if even one part begins to encounter difficulty. Your washer's spin cycle flings a large amount of water out of the clothes, but if the water can't drain, the clothes will soak it all back up, defeating the purpose of the cycle. Excessively wet clothes after the spin cycle may not be caused by faulty washer parts, but rather a blocked drain is a very good bet. Check the drain line for a blockage and try again. If your hose is kinked or bent, this can also cause a drainage problem. The failure of one simple part creates a larger problem for all the washer parts. What can cause a blockage? A number of items; paper left in the pockets of your jeans, coins or other debris, even socks. Check your hoses, and make sure your laundry has empty pockets for future loads.

Wont spin or drain


The drain pump is jammed or clogged up. Remove the filter cover and check for bobby pins, coins or bra wires. If clean, remove drum to pump hose from the pump and check for any foreign matter. Try to turn the pump impeller by hand. It should turn freely. If pump is not free, replace it.
