Perfectly normal..
What you are actually hearing is a balance ring on the inner tub that has liquid inside to help keep washing loads balanced.
The balance ring is filled with a calcium chloride solution and baffles within the ring allow the fluid to disperse within the ring evenly
By rotating the spin basket you can hear the fluid dispersing within the baffles of the balance ring.

I also thought ours was not draining properly but discovered otherwise when I had to take the inner tub out for a bearing repair job..
Hope this puts your mind at rest..

Patrich, basket spinning while agitating has to do with the brake system. You either have a broken brake spring, defective brake rotor, defective brake liner or warped stator. There are special tools needed to perform the repair as the spring is under a lot of pressure and could cause injury if not experienced. Catriver.

SOURCE: Maytag Washer PAVT-1 continues filling with water to overflowing

Does it still do this with power to the machine off? If so it is your water fill valve. Because no power is getting to the valve it has to shut off unless some foreign particles are holding it open. Remove and replace the water fill valve if still runs water after power is off.

Here are some things on how the selector switches work: If it stops when you remove power look at these possibilities.

Water fill switches usually have an air tube that as the water level comes up the air pressure increases and causes the switch to go from fill to wash.
I have seen rodents chew holes in the air tubing and this could be the cause or you may have a bad switch.
Some times the switches also get out of calibration and need readjusting (especially if you have moved in altitude like up a mountain or into a valley).
If this helps you please rate me as high as possible.
If it doesnt help you please rediscribe your problem in more detail to help me understand, post back and I will follow up.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune MAH4000AWW will not drain all the water out.

If you are saying that after the washer has finished you are left with wet cloths and water left standing in the tub ,then your pump is broken or as was my case I opened the back and removed the pump only to find a small piece of wicker that had come off my laundry basket . It was keeping the pump from turning .I removed it put everything back in place and saved over $380.00 . I hope this helps good luck .

When I spin the tub of my Maytag Neptune Washer, I hear water slushing. I do I manually drain the water out of the tub?


You can by pulling a hose. But most washers always have
a little water left in them.
Also, the drain hose height may be too high or you may have
a weak pump.

Maytag Neptune sounds like it still has water in it when it is empty


There is water in the drain hose that will slosh if you move the tub assembly by hand. The drain pumps are apparently designed like that; to not drain all the water i mean. Could that be what you are hearing? Also debris in your filter basket may not be allowing machine to drain as much as it should. Not sure about your model but this video should show similar pump cleaning procedure. Hope it helps.

Is some water in the tub of a top loading washer normal?


It is normal to have residual water in the drain lines and pump following a wash cycle. This is the low point of the drain cycle and gravity will ALWAYS cause some water to be there. As long as the water is not visible in the spin basket, you have nothing to worry about.

Some model washers also have a balance ring around the perimeter on top of the wash tub that is filled with fluid. This acts as a stabilizer to help keep the washer balanced during the spin cycle. If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this is helpful to you.

Why isn't the maytag neptune draining? when you spin the barrel you can hear water?


if you do not see water in the tube and the clothes have spun out enough to go into the dryer when the washer cycle finishes the washer has drained out all of the water the water you hear in the tub when the door is open and you spin the tub with your hand that liquid is in the sealed balance ring , that is a sealed channel around the front of the tub to help the machine stay balanced it does not come out

WHEN WASH IS COMPLETE, WHEN YOU SPIN THE TUB BY HAND YOU CAN HEAR WATER SLASHING.


The pump cannot completely drain all the water out of washers. There will be some water left in the bottom of the tub that you can't see but here slosh around if you move the basket. If your clothes are not wet, this is probably normal.

The machine doesn't drain 100% of the water out. You can move the tub and hear the water sloshing around in the machine bottom and the moisture is now starting to form mold on the front seal


All the water does not drain. The front tub has ballance ring with water sealed in it to off set off ballance loads. The sump hose on the pumpwill also hold water. You can clean your pumps clean out trap to make sure the pump is working good. Also a drain hose higher than 6 ft off floor will cause pump not to drain all water. Front loaders all have a mold problem. no air gets in when your done washing because you close the door. If you dont use bleach and hot water washes it makes matters worse. Fabric softner is even worse.
You need to clean your washer with bleach in the front seal by hand some times.
Its the price you pay for saving water.

Need to drain the tub before moving


It should all be drained out of there except a little in the hose. The sloshing sound you hear in there is not old water or stored up water. It is a liquid in a balancing ring that is sealed shut but it sounds like the water is in the tub. The best way to get all the water out is to take a wet vac and **** out the water from the drain hose. Just put you hand around the 2 hoses to kind of seal it and lay it on the floor. Nothing more is really needed to move it. Just don't be too wild moving it around lol. Front load machines are usually very heavy becuase they have cement or heavy pieces to keep the basket from moving around too much in a high speed spin. Good luck
