Is part number AP4027705 correct for a Maytag Neptune model number MAH4000AWW drain pump?
Answer Hello Daniel! Yes, the drain pump assembly part number 22003059 is the correct replacement drain pump used on your Maytag Washer model MAH4000AWW. Thanks!
Water will not drain out and is not clogged.
Answer Hello Daniel. Test and see if there is power coming to the drain pump. If so, and the pump does not run, replace the drain pump 22003059. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
my current pump is rated at 35 watts would that be a problem?
Answer John, We don't know what the issue is, but If you have a 35 watt drain pump in your washer, It's an original part. That particular drain pump was re engineered, 8 to 10 years ago, and is now an 80 watt motor. If you're sure your drain problem is not due to a clog or kink in the hoses or plumbing, then yes, repalce the drain pump. Thanks and Good Luck

If this part is malfunctioning will it, 1. Get more noisy? 2. Interfere with the spin cycle from turning?
Answer Hello Bryan. Yes, if the drain pump is bad, it will get more noisy and will cause the machine not to spin out properly. Hope this helps.
Does this assembly stop water from leaking as the washer is emptying and spinning?
Answer Hello Dona. This part's function is to pump water out of the appliance during the washing cycle. It does have a seal in it though that can become damaged and cause this part to leak. I would suggest trying to determine where the leak comes from. If it originates on the side of this part, then that seal is damaged and the entire pump would have to be replaced. I hope this info helps.
