Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
You can hear water in side when you move the tub around after the washing it done.
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.
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..

Patrich, basket spinning while agitating has to do with the brake system. You either have a broken brake spring, defective brake rotor, defective brake liner or warped stator. There are special tools needed to perform the repair as the spring is under a lot of pressure and could cause injury if not experienced. Catriver.

Does it still do this with power to the machine off? If so it is your water fill valve. Because no power is getting to the valve it has to shut off unless some foreign particles are holding it open. Remove and replace the water fill valve if still runs water after power is off.
Here are some things on how the selector switches work: If it stops when you remove power look at these possibilities.
Water fill switches usually have an air tube that as the water level comes up the air pressure increases and causes the switch to go from fill to wash.
I have seen rodents chew holes in the air tubing and this could be the cause or you may have a bad switch.
Some times the switches also get out of calibration and need readjusting (especially if you have moved in altitude like up a mountain or into a valley).
If this helps you please rate me as high as possible.
If it doesnt help you please rediscribe your problem in more detail to help me understand, post back and I will follow up.

If you are saying that after the washer has finished you are left with wet cloths and water left standing in the tub ,then your pump is broken or as was my case I opened the back and removed the pump only to find a small piece of wicker that had come off my laundry basket . It was keeping the pump from turning .I removed it put everything back in place and saved over $380.00 . I hope this helps good luck .
