Maytag Neptune How To Drain Water
« on: July 15, 2009, 07:52:00 AM »
Can anyone tell me how to drain the water out. It is going to be stored in a garage where it will be below freezing.

Thank You

Remove the access panel and remove the hoses from both sides of the drain pump. Let the water drain out. Re-assemble and store away.

Or the lazy way..hook up your shop vac to the drain hose.

When storing in a freezing climate, add 1 quart of anti freeze and 1 quart of water to the tub before storing. This will ensure the integrity of the pump seals while at the same time protecting the pump, etc. from the elements.

Sounds like 50/50 to me JW.

Because straight anti-freeze will deteriorate the drain hoses and pump seals. They are a different quality and composition than auto hoses.
