Maytag neptune washer Model #MAH5500B Serial #7390674ZQ Need instructions on how to attach shipping bolt for moving out of state


The installation instructions are here:
http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/15271/MAYTAG-Residential-Washers-L0503006

The used plastic shupping straps to hold the tub in place for shipping.... not bolts. Once removed without tearing the machine apart you can not re-install them. You can safely move this machine as long as you do not tip it excessively or drop it even a few inches. Just treat it very gingerly or post move you could have have an imbalance problem post move where the machine starts to spin then reverses direction several times but never comes up to full spin speed. Leave all the hoses connected to the washer and disconnect it from the wall only. Make sure you do NOT ship the machine loaded with anything inside. People often think an empty washer is unsed space..... wrong answer on a front loading machine. If your horribly concerned about the tub moving make a padded wooden block jig that has a rear pad that touches the back of the tub at the bottom and 3 pads that are flush when the door is closed. As a servicer I made my own long ago but rarely use if ever it.

May your move go well and thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly.

My maytag commercial 2000 series washer i just bought bounces during cycles uncontrollaby. Please advise?


Verify if the shipping bolts were removed. The machine will be shaking and moving if they weren't. In the back of the machine there should 4 big bolts attached with nuts.

What is the error code dS for Neptune Maytag Washer MAH8700AWW?


Please advise me on any recalls and technical information involving error code 3E during a wash load, which appears related to be a faulty control panel. My machine is always shutting down each time it reaches the rinse cycle. Numerous consumers have been complaining about this same model at consumeraffairs.com. Replacement of the control panel is expensive at an average cost of 298 dollars and appears to be the corrective action for other consumers with error code 3E. Over current is not being detected at the motor. I'm disappointed with the quality of this washer considering I purchased it in 2005 for over 1,000 dollars. This problem has forced me to use a local laundry mat to wash my clothes. This error code is not listed in the User manual.

How do you keep washer from jumping around during spin cycle? The washer is on one of the Maytag storage stands. It is leveled on a concrete floor but jumps around when on medium or high spin cycle. Any...


first of all if this is a new washer you need to make sure all the shipping straps or bolts are off. one way to find out is to open the door reach and grab on to the tub it supposed to be able to move up down and side to side. if not then the shipping bolts has not been removed.

Does a Maytag Neptune MAH6500WH have retaining bolts or pins that need to be installed before it can be moved?


If you are moving the washer for a long distance move, it is recommended that the shipping bolts be reinstalled to help prevent damage to the drum and suspension mechanism. This would be especially important if you're using a professional moving company, as they won't be able to move/load/unload it without problems.

If the move is relatively short and won't experience alot of aggressive movement, you can likely move the washer without chance of damage - provided you are careful and don't bounce the washer around.

Here's the info from the Maytag website, regarding moving front loading appliances:

If you are moving to a new home and plan to take your front-load washer and dryer pair with you, please call 800-688-9900, and speak to a fabric care expert. Our expert can recommend a Maytag-authorized servicer who will reinstall new shipping bolts to your washer.


New shipping bolts must be reinstalled to avoid internal suspension and structural damage to your washer during transport.

OK, so get your model number handy and give them a call, (you're missing some digits/alphas) you can get an online copy of your owner's manual that will show you the part numbers for the shipping bolts, if you've misplaced them, or give a call to the toll free number for Maytag, and they'll provide you with the part numbers needed so you can order them yourself and likely save some money versus having a service tech some out and do it for you/

Hope you find this very helpful and best regards!

How to INSTALL the shipping or transport bolts prior to moving my washer?


there should be i think 3 holes in the back of the washer and u need i believe the orange shipping bolts and they screw into the back to hold the drum in place because if u move without the u have a very good chance of breaking the shocks which there are 4 and they are about 30 dollars each plus the price of labor of installing new ones and there not very easy to get to.
