I have a Neptune stack washer/ dryer, 2000 vintage. The sollenoid valve is leaking and this model has the 4 coil valve. The valve will not come out the access hole in the back and it looks like the thing has to be gutted to remove/ replace the valve. It also looks like the dryer can be tilted back, don't like the looks of that so much....guilotine comes to mind.

Maytag will not give technical help other than, "simple questions from the user manual" like they want to insure I never buy another Maytag.

There has to be an simple way to get the valve out and repair or replace.

the log valve can be replace from the back, through the hole the mounting box is attached to. Its a bitch, but you can do it.


Even root canal is easy...if you're a dentist...

OK, so I successfully replaced the solenoid valve in my vintage MLE2000AYE Neptune Stack and that fixed that leak. Now when it spins out, I have water leaking out the front of machine, (it did not do that before that I am aware of).

Is it possible I got a hose on the valve wrong?? I see there restrictors in the valve body.

Chances are, you had the leak all along but never noticed it due to the failing of the old valve. Now to get eyes on this new leak to get er fixed.

Also check your dispenser housing, particularly around the frame and four mounting screws.  Over time I've the frame crack and if so splashing may occur, especially with the increased flow from the new log valve.

If you use liquid fabric softener it can thicken up over time and clog the fabric softener dispenser hose and cause a leak out the dispenser. Liquid fabric softener is bad stuff and should be avoided.

Fabric softener dispenser was full of gookum, apparently the old valve did not run any water into the dispenser. That problem is solved with a coat hanger and lots of hot water.

 

One more thing that the stack is not doing correctly, the dryer will not shut off if left in "sensor" mode. It thinks the smoking hot clothes are still wet. Have to use it in timer mode.

Is this a sensor issue or a control?? How do I check it out??

 

This last fix will make it run like new...................I hope.
