SOURCE: maytag neptune mah8700aww/drum gasket removal/replacement

The bottom of my gasket was torn open all along the bottom. I ordered the gasket but I wanted to see if I could repair it so we could catch up on the wash. I bought some rubber contact cement that cost me under $4.00. I Glued the gasket rubber together by overlapping the the seem a little. Still had a hole in one spot. I had a sheet of rubber around my shop that was about 1/16 of an inch thick and cut it about three inches wide.. I used a little sandpaper to rough it up a little. I cut it in two.
You have to apply contact cement to the gasket and the rubber you are applying it to. ( I dry fit it first to make sure it would fit). Just to make sure it would hold I also glued rubber to the outside bottom of the gasket to reinforce the glued seam. . You need to take off the front panel to do this and there are directions to do this if you search for it. I was able to run the washer in about an hour after the repair.
If your washer is in the basement and are not afraid of getting the floor wet give it a try. I have run the machine with heavy loads for two days and no leaks. I feel confident that the repair will last for a long time. A cheap fast fix. It took me about forty five minutes. Make sure you unplug the machine to do this. Good luck.

Are you taking an “ND” error to the display? Good job on checking for the clog from the sump cap to the input to the drain pump and out the drain pump to the drain pipe. The sump cap is sort of semi transparent if you shine a flash light on it do you see any restrictions? I had half of a bank card stuck in mine. This the sump cap item 9 of the parts view.

I would try to turn on the drain pump in service mode and see if you hear it spin up. I guess the impeller could be jammed up. So let’s try that first. I post these links constantly for support so disregard if you have them. Link to Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.
I would go to page 16 of the SM lower right hand part of page, Board Output Test and turn on the drain pump in service mode and see if the motor runs. Here is the test; close the lid and enter the Service Mode by pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00”
Pressing the Delicates key will lock the lid. Now press the Presoak key the drain pump will turn on do you hear it run? Stop the test as the SM states with off button or hit the Presoak key. If the drain pumps sounds like it turns on I would put in a bucket of water in the wash basket and see how the output stream looks out of the drain hose when you turn on the Drain Pump in service mode. I get about a 2.5" vertical lift of the output stream from the drain pump.

Post back for questions or any help we can provide. Rich

The drain pump os obviously either blocked or gone. Lie the drain hose on the ground to drain by gravity. Then have a look at the pump. This may need to be taken out as I'm not sure if there is a pump filter on this particular model. The door is designed to not open with water in the drum.

Check your drain hose for kinks or blockages, check filter and pump for blockages, check wire harness connections to pump, pressure switch and CCU.
I machine will start- If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/ Spin cycle then a Normal cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.

Check that the pump is operating properly. hold the drain hose over a bucket during pump/spin make sure its a reasonable output from the pump..If not remove and clean your filter, then readdress problem as before, if still no cure then check the pump blades are free.....If all is well and pumping okay then spin should be fine providing the motor is okay......Good Luck.....

My maytag neptune mah8700aww is showing a nd code do i need to replace my pump


I would first check the drain stand pipe to see if it is clogged in any way. You can watch it during a drain cycle, assuming your washer is draining, and see if it backs up in there. The next area I would check is the drain hose itself. Make sure it is not kinked, or blocked either. You can check for blocks by pulling the hose off and running a semi rigid object through it. A close hanger, straightened out will work most of the time. If all is clear, and you are not getting any other codes on your display, then the pump is the next thing to check.
