Pump works good but leaves water sloshing about in the outer tub. I've ruled out siphoning because water is present as soon as the spin cycle ends. I'm not so sure what controls that function (sensor or board)? Maybe I'm missing the obvious but...thanks for the help.

If the customer is rotating the laundry basket by hand---and is concerned because he/she hears liquid "sloshing"---this is normal.

Maytag Neptune-style washers used a liquid-filled balance ring on the stainless steel tub.
To eliminate:

Musty odor

L-O-N-G cycle times

Dingy/yellowing whites

Suds error message

Slow spin speeds

Intermittent water leaks (from rear of washer)

And other annoying symptoms which vary brand-to brand.

Read below:

The *correct* amount of HE (High Efficiency) detergent that should be used in any front load or agitatorless top load washer with tub sizes 3.0 cu ft and larger is as follows:

HE: (2) Tablespoons Per Wash Load

HE 2X: (1) Tablespoon

HE 3X: (1) Teaspoon

Perform a TUB CLEAN CYCLE every (4) months.

Use: "Tide Washing Machine Cleaner"

No standing water in the basket and no complaints other than the sloshing sounds recently observed by customer. I think john63 has cut to the chase on this one. I am less familiar with this Neptune characteristic and appreciate the succinct and humane responses. :whistling:
