Customer Question
"Inherited" a Maytag Neptune front...
"Inherited" a Maytag Neptune front load washer. Need a manual, and need to know where to find model number. Also, what was written on the inside of the lid for the detergent / bleach / softener? Mine is completely obliterated.

Washer was originally used in an area that had extraordinarilly heavy iron deposits - how do I get these orange stains out of the washer?

Front loader - no info on the inside of the door. Nothing on the top of the control panel.

Front looks like this:

Fabrics Wash/Rinse Options Start/Stop Dial

The door and what I can see of the detergent bin look like this, but the top is straight across.

 

Sorry to be such a Pain In the Anatomy!

 

 

Appliance Technician: william, Home Appliance Technician replied 7 years ago

Hi, William

Sorry, this is not the model - there is no "window" for error codes, and the detergent basket is totally different.

You've also send me another e-mail - I'll look at that next. Sorry it took so long to reply to you - my volunteer work takes up my Wed. evenings and Thurs. mornings.

Ok wheres your detergent tray located at? The top left hand corner on the flat part? Or the front side left hand corner?
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 7 years ago
Takes up most of the left hand side of the top - about 2 1/2" from the upright portion. The upright part, where the push-buttons are located, is straight across the top - no curves.

Does this look like yours?

HOORAY! Yes! That's the one!

Where you able to locate the model number from that one post that i sent you? There are a few model numbers for this one machine.
Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 7 years ago
No - I can't see over the top (to access the back of the machine), and there is nothing on the front, or inside the door.
Appliance Technician: william, Home Appliance Technician replied 7 years ago

Look at this picture of this diagram. Does this look somewhat like yours?

 

 

 

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 7 years ago

No - mine is a grey 6" 2 part divided cup, with sort of rounded/pushed in partitions*, with a separate dark blue 4" bar (that I think adds water to the bleach or softener cups). The grey cup is removable, as is the blue bar. The larger, rear portion (not part of the grey cup) has a grid at the back of it. Since there was a lot of soap powder residue here, I'm assuming (bad thing to do!) that this is where the detergent goes.

 

Imagine a rectangular cup with pliable sides. Push in slightly on both the divider and the rear-most side - almost as if you were crimping a pie shell.

Appliance Technician: william, Home Appliance Technician replied 7 years ago

Sorry but i meant the control panel.n Go through these pictures and tell me which one is yours? We need to narrow this down to your model. Again there are so many model numbers going to one machine, Better yet does your top look like this diagram
