GE Front Load Washing Machine

When I put the liquid soap in the drawer at the top of the machine it doesn't wait for me to close the door and start the machine. The soap is running out on the seal and all over the door. I have checked the soap dispenser and made sure the plastic piece is all the way down and inserted the right way. I can't figure out what is wrong with it. I have owned this machine for about a month now and this problem just started happening a couple days ago. Please Help!!! Kim Soko

It sound like a lid switch problem. Since your washer is still under warranty you should contact GE service center for their assistance. Good luck!

Where do I put the liquid soap for the wash

Lichid soap for automatic washing machines is not indicated, since foam is produced and can be a nuisance when coming out from every seal and can perturb the function of some sensor.However, if needed, can be poured on the powder tray (100 ml) for about 5 kg of laundry or directly inside machine, on top of laundries is better. Don't forget to close the door afterwards.

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.

    You should have a little divider in the soap drawer , it needs to be moved into a different position for liquid ( holds the liquid until the cycle begins)

    Can you use granular soap and where to apply it? we have a frigidaire washer with a drawer to put liquid soap in.

    On our washer there is a little slider in that drawer that allows the opening into the washer to open wider for solid laundry soap. Maybe that's the case in yours. If not then you might be confined to using HE liquid soap.

    Soap tablets are not disolving in the drawer?

    Unlike a dishwasher the drawer on a washing machine is for soap powder or liquid. Tablets won't dissolve in the drawer you need to put them in the drum if at all.

    Where do you add laundry products?

    There is a drawer on the top left hand side, next to the circular dial. Pull it out and it is labeled. For liquid soap, there is an insert that goes in the soap area. Don't use liquid soap unless that is present!

    Cant open soap drawer on washer

    I opened up the top of the washer by unscrewing the screw in the back. then I pressed down hard on the white plastic cover of the soap dispenser that you will see on the front left hand side of the machine. I also moved it slightly to the right by pushing on the side of the same unit.

    The soap dispenser then opened up fine. I cleaned out the soap dispenser from any crud that developed in it. Now it opens and closes nicely.

    Did you know there is a class action lawsuit against LG for mold that develops inside of this model washer? I joined in the lawsuit. There should be no mold accumulating in any washer.

    Opening the top of front load LG washer

    to get your lid of the washer there are 2/3 screws at the back right under the lip of the lid once you have taken the lid of u will see the top of the soap drawer u can sometimes get into these by undoing the clips on either side of the soap drawer if u cant do it that way only other way is to make sure your soap drawer is closed properly and hit it hard at the front it should dislodge more than likely your conditioner drawer
