Maytag Neptune MAH6700AWW LEAKING

5 posts in this topic

This may tag washer is pouring out water from the dispenser housing. I'm not exactly sure why but every time a front loader leaks water from the dispenser it is usually due to some type of clog. I took the dispenser off and check to see if the bellow to the tub front was clogged. I didn't find anything. Now I know the soap tray is not an issue because I took it out and the dispenser housing still filled up with water and then slowly drains into the tub. When the unit starts it's fill sequence the water enters the machine pretty slowly from what I can see through the glass bowl while the dispenser is gushing out water. Has anyone ever run into this on this particular model? I was nervous to just yank the rubber bellow from the front tub because I'm not sure if maytag decided to put a clamp on the inner side of the tub to keep the rubber hose secured. Do I really have to disassemble the tub in order to fix this clogging issue? please let me know guys.

Shine a bright light under the main wash tub, then look inside and you will most likely see something, (like a small kids sock), stuck between the basket and the outer tub right where the inlet tube that you have circled in yellow enters the tub.

This appears to be the Maytag version of the Whirlpool Duet sport, I've had this exact same problem on two different Duet Sport washer and found the offending object stuck at that point and have been able to retrieve it by pulling the boot back and using a long skinny screwdriver to reach between spin basket and tub to remove object.

Looking at the front of the machine at about 11 oclock pull the boot a little you will see it sticking out if not you will see rubber against the tub where the dispenser fill enters... It there is something there there it is obvious. I have long "roach clips" pull them out.... Thats what I call them :P
