Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
After I run a load and full cycle there appears to still be water in the machine. It does not appear in the drum but when I turn the drum I can hear it sloshing around.
The water or liquid you hear when you spin the drum is not from washing it's suppose to be there to balance the spinning of the drum.

I have a similar problem with a Maytag Performa. I'm going to take the drain hose off and remove the pump to clean it out and then re-install it. Vinnegar does cut through the soap build up...but you have to get it WHERE the soap build up is! Hope this helps

I have the same problem except my machine actually stops every minute through the last spin cycle. I called sears repair twice and the last time the repair man came said that I was using too much detergent and not the right kind. So I had a soap build up. If I was using the right kind, I only needed a tablespoon of the detergent per load. I don't have the mold buildup as of yet. He suggested leaving the lid up when not using it so it dries out. He said that I just needed to work it out and that it may take 1-2 months of washing properly. He also suggested that I use vineagar(?) in an empty wash cycle at the end of the day to help it dry out.
Well, it's been a week and my machine still doesn't work right. But I have a warranty with SEARS until March 2009. Why can't they clean any build up when they have the machine taken apart?
I hope this helps.

We have the same problem with our neptune. We also have mold build up on the seal. Maytag doesnt want to help and says we missed the recall!! I will never buy maytag again!!

We've had the Maytag Neptune for 8 years. I also hear what sounds like water in the drum even after the machine is finished and has gone through the spin cycle properly. While we did have some minor mildew buildup in the detergent cup area, we never had it in the drum area. We leave the door open between every cycle and we've taken out the removable bleach/softener dispenser and we also leave the door up on the detergent dispenser area between every cycle. We've been following these practices for the past few years and have never had a smell nor a recurrence of significant mold/mildew growth.
