Question about Maytag MAH2400A Front Load Washer
I heard a loud grinding noise while draining. Took apart drain pump and there was a quater with some plastic parts (WAS THAT THE BLADE???). After removing the quarters the machine will only turn on. I can not change settings or do anything. Please help.

I realize this is an old thread but just in case. When you removed the inbound hose to the pump (the hose that comes from the bottom of the drum) there should have been some sort of screen in place to block objects (typically coins) from entering the pump and subsequently damaging the impeller (the little fan that moves the water inside the pump). Good luck finding the replacement part. Mine wasnt there, but I got this from a friend who has pets. He had it serviced a while back. I found that typically a service tech will remove the screen if he finds a ton of pet hair clogging it. Keeps him out of trouble since the pet hair will accumulate in there again and cause a repeat problem. The customer, thinking he just paid good money for that repair, is upset and starts complaining and calling the first repair tech a crook.
Another repair tech told me this too: If you have babies in the house, you need to purchase a laundry bag. This is just a small mesh bag to put baby socks in so they arent running around loose inside the drum during washing. These little socks WILL fit inside the drain hose and clog up the pump, just like the coins do.
All in all, taking extra care not to load coins into your laundry and purchasing a small mesh bag to put the really small items in, like T-backs and baby socks, will go a long way in preventing pump failures.

I replaced the pump on mine after the same problem. It's really easy to do - just turn the machine upside down, remove a few screws and pull out the attached hoses. (Keep a bucket handy to drain any water.) I also found a hard plastic gutter guard, sawed off the bottom and wedged that into the hose in case any coins make their way into it again.

Maytag MAH2400AWW will not drain, yes this seems to be a comman problem with this machine. When it was under warranty a service man came out because it was making a clinking sound while it was in the rinse/drain cycle, he pulled the pump off there was a dime floating around in there. That was over a year ago, yesterday my wife said there was a code "nd" showing on the machine and it wouldn't drain. I pulled the same pump off again and sure enough this time there was a quarter wedged in there, not allowing hardly anything to drain. I got lucky it did not seem to hurt anything. Hope this info helps.
