Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Have a Maytag Neptune front loader with a balance problem. Tried to troubleshoot and am pretty sure it's the liquid balance ring on tub. Spins unevenly, in washa nd in spin cycle. Have run it without clothes. Checked bearings, struts, spider ring on back of tub - nothing obvious broken. Everything seems fine. Completely dumbfounded as how to fix. HELP! Thanks

Maytag mah55flbwq not draining


Perfectly normal..
What you are actually hearing is a balance ring on the inner tub that has liquid inside to help keep washing loads balanced.
The balance ring is filled with a calcium chloride solution and baffles within the ring allow the fluid to disperse within the ring evenly
By rotating the spin basket you can hear the fluid dispersing within the baffles of the balance ring.

Thebalanceringisfilledwithacelciurnchloridesolutionandbaffles,withintheringallowthefluidtodispersewithinthe:ring,evenly
I also thought ours was not draining properly but discovered otherwise when I had to take the inner tub out for a bearing repair job..
Hope this puts your mind at rest..

Hello, The earlier Maytag Neptune front loaders have a balance ring on the inner tub that has liquid in it and that causes the sloshing sound when you turn the tub by hand. That is normal.

I noticed that you have a MAH3000... Have you replaced your door latch wax motor yet? If not, it will fail and damage your control board located behind the timer. See NeptuneHelpSong for a video that explains the failure.

I hope this helps...

Why isn't the maytag neptune draining? when you spin the barrel you can hear water?


if you do not see water in the tube and the clothes have spun out enough to go into the dryer when the washer cycle finishes the washer has drained out all of the water the water you hear in the tub when the door is open and you spin the tub with your hand that liquid is in the sealed balance ring , that is a sealed channel around the front of the tub to help the machine stay balanced it does not come out

jf you have removed the pump i can assure you the water is out
what you may be hearing is the liquid balance ring on the tumbler front
if it sounds like running water when you turn the tub, it means your balance ring is working'
it is there to keep the machine balanced and is sealed in the ring
