Question about Maytag Neptune MLG2000A Front Load Stacked Washer/Dryer
The washer seems to be working fine, though I'm not sure the clothes are getting rinsed completely and they were more damp than I expected when the cycle was complete. (Moved into new house, first time with washer) However, when I reach in and rotate the drum, there is a loud sloshing sound as if there is a lot of water left inside the washer - this water does not show up inside the drum. Also, the clothes I washed with a perfume free detergent came out smelling of perfumed detergent, leading me to think there was some detergent left in the machine from the previous owners. There is currently no smell of mold, though I would think that a bunch of water sitting in the machine for a while would smell - the machine had been unused for at least 3 weeks.
First of all, is your drain hose connected to a kitchen sink or into a standpipe? If its a sink make sure you form a loop or curve in the hose as high as possible above the sinks own waste(plug hole) ,to ensure water cannot travel from sink back into machine. If this is not the case then your water pump, or the rubber pipe coming to the pump has definately got some kind of obstruction inside. Your washing machine has not emptied properly since it filled up at the beginning of the cycle,and has not got rid of the soapy water enough to enable a true rinse.Hence the detergent smell on clothes... Turn off power at plug socket.Take drain hose out of stand-pipe (or connection to sink waste)and drop this hose into a washing up bowl or similar at floor level,to drain off as much water as possible before disconnecting hose to pump or checking the pumps impellar to discover the blockage..Lets know how u get on,good luck.
