Question about Maytag MAH6500 Neptune Front Loading Washer w/Built in Water Heater

1 Answer

I have the MAH8700AWW model and the smell is awful!

I originally purchased my Neptunes in Aug 2005 and had a Maytag repair person come out 3 times in 6 mos because of the imbalance. As a result, I was comped a new washer and still have had problems ie; it's taking off like a jet and the moldy/mildewy smell is now very offensive and getting worse everyday. I purchased the Affresh tabs and that has not helped. I keep the door open after I am done using the machine and still the smell is atrocious! Any help would be appreciated!

    I purchased the same model in June of 2005 and have the exact same problems. Imbalance and a terrible odor. Called customer service twice and was told all the cleaning techniques as well as purchasing the affresh. Already spent too much on the affresh because nothing is helping to get rid of the odor. Sounds to me like Maytag should be taken to court for this model as well. We should be compensated for this. The odor is unbearable at times!

I have read that the imbalance/drum problem is a known problem and should be covered under warranty.

also, that the smell is also a known problem and can only be fixed by replacing the outer gasket. Which seems like a waste of time, as how long would it take for the new gasket to smell?

SOURCE: Moldy door ring Maytag Neptune Frontloader & poor cleaning

This is an extremely annoying problem and a very effective solution is baking soda! You should place around 200 grams of baking soda into the empty drum and then run a full cycle hot or boil wash.

This is a very effective method of reducing and preventing mold in a w/machine. I would recommend you run this "maintenance" wash once per month to prevent further build up of mold in the machine.

You can purchase a replacement door ring if the mold is extremely stubborn. However the Baking Soda also has the effect of neutralising any residue and odour that may be associated with it.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate my answer. Thank You.

Maytag Dryer MDG9700AWW has split into the metal drum at the seam


I'd say take the 50% off offer. Dryer drums are very thin, and a weld would most likely still make a thump noise every time it passed the drum supports. (two thumps per revolution) I've seen this on other brands which use thin stainless steel drums. (I didn't look up your model to see if the drum was SS or powder coated metal, or galvanized, or whatever) It is not a real common thing, but certainly not unheard of. I'd say it was indeed a poor weld, but the manufacturer's generally won't help much once it makes it past the warranty period. Don't bother rating this, as anything but a FixYa lowers my rating. Thanks.

Won't cycle to the next step


maytag neptunes are the worst appliances to get. i worked for maytag and the neptunes are over price and break very easy. plus the cost of repairs are very expensive. i would recomend getting a new washer. youve put enough money into this one and getting it fixed is going to be expensive. especially when the fix is only temporary. something else is going to leak or break.
