Leak well after completion of wash cycle - Neptune Front Loader

The plumber couldn't figure it out but perhaps you can. Periodically and well after the MAH5500BWW completes it's wash cycle (e.g., after 11PM and before 7 AM) there is a water leak (about 1/4 to 1/2 gallon) that seems to be coming from where the drain hose fits in the drain. There is enough pressure to spray an appliance that is next to the washer and the back of the washer -- at the same level as the drain pipe opening. This just occurred while we were on vacation, had the water feeds turned off, and verified that there was no water leak after using the washer. In fact, it would appear that it leaked multiple times during the period we were gone given the amount of water. The washer appears to work great during its normal operation and there are no signs of water leaks during operation. Thanks for any suggestions! Ron

    Problem solved and it had nothing to do with the washer (no surprise there) -- but now is a different kind of mystery. It turns out that when the automatic sprinkler system turned on (around 5 AM) water sprayed out of the junction between the hot water shut off valve and the hot water copper pipe and caused a small flood in the laundry room floor. Turn off the sprinkler and a very slow drip could be seen and that would flow to the drain area. The plumber had no clue as to why that would happen -- especially since the water pressure would be reduced when the sprinklers were on.

Peace,
ngafm1 at your service,

Water sprayed out of ( the leaky washers in the hot water shut off valve which need to be replaced.
They are inside all valves and wear out in time from normal use!
Or you can have a bad solder joint at the junction between the hot water shut off valve or the the pipe joint!
these washers in any shutoff valve can leak intermittently till they get worse and then leak all the time!
you should be able to stand there and watch it as you open and close the shut off valve again and again , and then stay there and watch it start leaking!
Or when you are opening it and closing the valve 4 times straight you may feel a trickle of water from the valve stem!!!!
This means washers in the valve stem need to be replaced!!!
Get a new plumber !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm no plumber but I do under stand this!

We are having a leak on the bottom of the front loader door on the wash cycle


Check the door seal. There is a boot drain on the seal that may be clogged. This drain allows the water to drain out of the seal when water gets in there. You may need to replace the seal. HEre is a link to the part you will need.

Neptune MLG2000A doesn't drain completely and has moldy smell


You need to clean the stationary "brush" that collects lint and debris from the water during the cycle. The brush can be seen around the tub directly touching it along the bottom/front of the device. Right were I pour my detergent in, after the cloths are in there. To remove the debris I use a bottle brush. You can expect to use trial and error for your attempts. As far as the water being left.... My device has always left water in the bowl. I periodically just run a cycle with no cloths and bleach...HOT.....Mine is not spinning at the moment...again....I think its another call to the local dealer....AGAIN....

pump is probably clogged not allowing all water to drain out. Should never see water in the tub at the end of a cycle. About once a month you should run your washer through a cycle with hot water and bleach. Doing that should keep the moldy smell down.

My Maytag Neptune fnt loader Model# MAH9700AWW


I have a Maytag neptune mah8700aww
With mine the large grey rubber seal that seals at door slipped off! When this happens if you do not put back on correctly it will leak or even poor out the front center bottom of the door! My husband fixed it. But it still leaked really bad! I just took a couple of min. to refit the seal and it does not leak at all now! maybe your seal is not placed around the edge correctly! as it is easy to place it wrong! good luck!! keep my email address if I was helpfull!! We can always share problems and solutions for our neptunes in the future ! good luck

Water leak from detergent drawer


Remove the control panel. Inside you will find a service tech sheet that will identify the error code.

There may be an obstruction in the water valve inlet flume forcing the water to travel in the wrong direction.
