Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Yes, I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
-------------------------------------

If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Is there any kind of recall on a Maytay front loading washer, model #MAH6500AWW? I am having problems with mildew in the rubber part and terrible smelling water in the bottom.


The cleaning process for your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer, for example, requires some time and patience. Over time, your washing machine will need to be cleaned. It can develop offensive odors through multiple wash cycles. This makes the washing machine less effective at cleaning the clothes you put into it. Maytag offers some sound advice for cleaning your front-loading washing machine.
  • Pour 2/3 cup of liquid chlorine bleach into the bleach compartment of the dispenser drawer of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer.

  • 2

    Run your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer on the "Clean Washer" setting. Press "Start" to start the cycle.

  • 3

    Leave the door open once the cycle is complete to allow the inside of your Maytag Neptune front-loading washer to ventilate and air dry.

  • 4

    Look closely at the gray seal of the Maytag Neptune front-loading washer's door opening. This seal can have a buildup of debris or detergent residue.

  • 5

    Spray the seal with an all-purpose appliance cleaner and scrub away any debris or residue with a cloth or scrubbing pad. Dry with a clean cloth.

  • 6

    Remove the soap dispenser drawer. Press the release lever and lift it out to clean.

  • 7

    Take out the inserts and rinse them and the drawer thoroughly.

  • 8

    Wash with a mild soap and cloth to remove any residue. Dry thoroughly before replacing.


  • ALWAYS LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN WHEN NOT IN USE! This prevents the mold and mildew from forming once you get it cleaned.

    Hi i was just wondering how to clean the filter on a fisher and paykel washing machine. when washing clothes the washer doesnt seem to be getting them as clean as they could be and there is always debree...


    There is no filter to clean on GWL11. There is an optional lit filter that can be installed that goes in-place of the fabric softener cup. I would guess that the reason debree is being left behind is possible due to the over use of soap... This is a high efficiency machine and if you are using the auto water level option it may not be using as much water as you believe it should (or would). The debree get suspended in the soap suds as the should however, there is too many of them and they are not all being rinsed out. You could try using the fabric softener rinse option even if your not using fabric softener this gives it a more traditional rinse like most other top load washers use.

    For really soiled clothes like sand and dries mud etc. shake the clothes out first.

    I hope this helps.

    P.S. I actually have this exact washer myself.

    Clothes not clean after washing


    Were the settings appropriate for the clothing?
    The settings on the machine should be set properly for the load. Different fabric types require different wash/rinse temperatures, spin speeds, and wash times. Always follow the instructions printed on the fabric care label. The soil level needs to be set in accordance with the load type. Heavily soiled clothing will not come clean with a light soil level setting.
    Was the proper detergent used?
    If too much detergent is used, or non-HE detergent is used, the machine will not wash properly. Too many suds present during a wash decreases tumbling action and will not rinse out well. Furthermore, detergent residue built up in the machine over time will deposit extra detergent on clothes and deposit soil back into clothing.

    Was the washer overloaded? If the machine is overloaded, the machine will not wash and rinse properly. When the washer is overloaded, the clothes have no room to tumble, and the cleaning performance of the washer is reduced. In addition, when the clothes are packed tightly inside the drum the detergent and water will not distribute evenly throughout the items.

    Front loaders require regular maintenance to ensure optimum performance. If this maintenance is not followed, residue can accumulate in the drum resulting in detergent and soil being deposited back into clothing. This can also lead to odor and other issues. Perform the required maintenance regularly (once or twice a month).

    Residue on clothes


    For low water volume - or "Trickling" effect...

    1. Turn off the water supply to both hoses.
    2. Remove hoses (one at a time so you don't get them confused)
    3. On the washer side - look for a removeable screen inside wher you just removed the hose.
    4. Using a small screwdriver - pop out the screen and reverse-flush it/clean it. It will likely be full of sediment and calcium deposits from your pipes.
    5. Replace the inlet screens.
    6. Re-fit the hose to the machine.
    7. Turn on water supply valves.
    8. re-try.

    Hi We Have a ge front load washer and dryer and it seems that our clothes smell musty at times. I've tried leaving the door open on the washer when not in use. Could there be another prooblem??


    Try using vinegar, baking soda, or bleach in an empty load to counteract any residues left in onboard water. Also check for debris stuck in door baffle(rubber sleeve between door and tub).

    Washer not cleaning clothes


    The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.
    On some models the filter is located ‘inside’ the big hose from the bottom of the tub. This takes more time to clean.

    Next run your washer with 2 cups of bleach, hot water. After it starts agitating stop the washer & let it remain for 2 hours. Then continue the wash.

    hi there,

    the musty smell is from the door boot or gasket. deposit from clothes and detergent get trapped in there and have nowhere else to go. i would recommend purchasing Washerfresh tables to get rid of the deposits. they are available all over.

    I have a Samsung SW60ASP toploader and it continues to deposit black 'bits' in the washing machine after use, staining clothes and I have to wash everything again. I have had the drum cleaned, but the...


    To overcome the problem, try using hand hot water for your wash once or twice each month, the hot water keeps the inside of the machine clean by not allowing the oily residue from body oils that adhere to your clothes from sticking to the hose etc, also there is always some water left over in the bottom of the bowl (you can't see this water) which has left over scum that has not rinsed away still sitting in this water. GIVE YOUR WASH AN EXTRA DEEP RINSE WHEN THE CYCLE FINISHES.(just turn your dial to where it says RINSE) that way your clothes will be much cleaner and the washer will have removed any left over gung etc from your clothes and bowl etc.. Hope this helps..
