Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
I recently purchased a Boot Drain P/N 12002533 with the idea of replacing the original moldy one. Now I realize there are other parts needed (which I don't yet have) for a more thorough " fix " .
For example: drain hose P/N 22003071 (or 22004477 ?), hose guard 22003074, wire clamp 22003072, and inner door 22003212. Is this fix meaningful ? Now I'm thinking of just replacing the boot seal (with the plug in) . The mold has not been a major issue, until just recently, and the fresh seal might at least look nice for awhile. What do you think ?
ngfam1 At your service!
It is is normal for the Neptune to have water left in the inner tub after the wash finishes!
I used to have a Neptune and I sold them too!!
I had them change that drain under warranty when it was new and it never stopped the smell or the mold!
After the third repair I threw it in the trash and bought a Speed Queen Commercial grade washer and thats the last one I will ever by!
8 loads a week for 25 years!!!!!!!
The moldy oder problem is in every Maytag Neptune made!
The Neptune comes new with water in it from the test run!
All the water never gets totally discharged. This is one reason why everyone complains about the moldy, musky or even stinky smell of the Neptune! Every day I have people here asking what too do about the moldy wet smell!
THIS IS SERIOUS!!!!!
I do tell them to run the washer once a week without clothes and with hot water and 1/4 cup of bleach. And then make suer to do only white clothes directly after wards as not to get a drop of beach water on a colored article of clothing!
Then leave the door open after every load when not in use!
GOOD THING WHIRLPOOL JUST BOUGHT THEM OUT LAST YEAR!
Perhaps they will make some good changes!!
Hope this helps and makes you feel a little better as to some water sounds! HOW OLD IS THE WASHER??????
Below I referred you to a great service nation wide!
If none of these tasks remedy the heat problem then here is a good company that's found nation wide.
A&E Factory Service
A&E has schedulers available to take appointments 24/7
And they do warranty work too, for most manufactures!
You will be fine
