To remove the lid on the Neptune, you first remove the door, taking the screws out of the hinges, then lift them out. This might take a little work. The front cover should unclip at the corners up top. Two screws out, then lift the top. The water leakage could be caused by one of the fill hoses and supply hoses (which are all over the top of unit) could have sprung a leak and has become loose somewhere. Let me know how it turns out. Good Luck!!!! Jim

Ive got a maytag neptune model# MAH8700AWW front load washer that water keeps dripping into the soap dispenser and filling up the tub over night about 1 to 2 gal of water and ive been looking for a repair...

Would be the Inlet solenoid (this is effectively the valve that allows water to come in - that the inlet hose screws on to, and has a couple of wires going to it on the inside).
Replace carefully, with the power shut off, or simply turn the tap off when not in use :-)

When washing machine not being used the water drips into the washer tub, it is top loader about 12 yrs old

if the washer is filling up on it's own the water valve is bad,sediment gets inside it doesn't close all the way allowing water to leak through. they show two different valves,when you talk to your parts guy bive him the full model number off of the washer and they are asking for a series number either 83 or 87 so you get the correct valve

Our washing machine sat outside during a hard freeze (4 days without ever getting above 27). We had the water lines disconnected/dripping to avoid busted pipes, but we didn't realize there was a spot for...

your water valves, you have 2. may have a crack due to the freezing. they retain water inside. you have to take appart or lift the top of the washer to inspect the water valves. the main valve is the one you connect the fill hoses. the other is the one on the dispenser.

Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.

You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use very hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Put the Affresh pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.

You can give me a ‘very helpful’ rating for the free help, can't you. Thanks.

When the washer finishes the spin cycle and I open it up to remove the cloths, the water continues to drip into the drum. What do I need to do to repair this problem.

It sound's like the water inlet valve is stuck open, it's located at the back of the washer, the cold and hot water hose's connect to it, you may need to replace it with a new one to fix the drip.

Water left pooled inside maytag neptune front loading washer

Possible explanation: Some water is left in the hose going up to the drainpipe b/c the pump can only pump water with water, not air... so when the last bit of water is sucked up, it 'stays' just the other side of the pump exit nozzle and keeps the drain tubefilled. This water gradually leaks thru the drain exit valve and back into the machine, sometimes siphoning standing water in the drain trap with it.

The valve is either electric solenoid or plastic/rubber clapper in a cylinder. Your call whether to fix or not depending on ease and cost. Probably a $20.00 part.

Cheers!

Neptune washer

If the water is draining out o.k. then either there is no signal from the water level pressure switch, no signal from the control board or a problem with the Spin windings.
