    I have exactly the same "jetliner taking off" sound when on the spine cycle. Not to mention having to deal with mold and/or rust.

    I have the same problem with the spin cycle of my FAV 6800AWW. The spin cycle sounds like a freight train! I was quoted a repair cost of $500 to $600! My machine is also 4 yrs old. I emailed Maytag but the only offer they had was 15% off a new product! It's unreasonable for a machine to last only 4 yrs! Has anyone gotten any help from Maytag with this?

Maytag Neptune stacking washer, model #MLG2000AWW, sounds like a jet engine warming up during spin cycle. Otherwise it is quiet and works well. Is a main bearing going out? Is it something I can fix...

you can but it wouldnt be economical to fix it if it sounds like a jet it is yr rear bearing and although the part might be only 60 dollars the amount of time it would take someone to do the job correctly is about 2-3hrs if you can do the job yourself then you would save on a large labor bill ive seen some techs price doing this job at starting prices of 400 you can find the part at marcone appliance parts if you choose to do the job yrself hope this helps

My maytag neptune top loading washing machine when washing sounds like there are belts squealing and the washer tub seems to hit the sides of the machine when spinning what is going on?

This sounds like a possible Clutch issue. Is the machine model an FAV6800A or FAV9800A?

When the washer is banging around do you take unbalance errors such as dC or uC?

Do you want to DIY the fix or call in a repair service. If you could confirm your machine model number......Rich

Our 5 year old Neptune won't progress through the cycle past 24 minutes, and won't drain, though it sounds like it is spinning. We had a new clutch put in about 3 years ago. The repair guy said to replace...

It is not the controller. It sounds like it spinning since the motor is turning. If the motor turn then it is not the control board problem. The culprit is that the mechanism is not working. The motor has 2 directions of rotation. One is for agitation through a mechanism, as helix. The part cost about 10$. Other direction is for spinning. This includes the transmission pulley, the brake and the clutch. The clutch and the brake are hardly needing replaced unless a wrong diagnostics had been made. The thickness of the transmission pulley is worn out due to a friction force every time the spinning mechanism is engaging. When it is worn out, it is short to push the clutch so no engagement happens, hence no spinning. And this parts also cost $15. The only cost is the labor to take the machine apart to replace this. If you enjoy doing it then I recommend you should. There is no instruction to describe how the system work, but if you observe the mechanism carefully, you will understand how it work. The best simulation to gain understanding is to unplug the machine take out the panel, turn the belt in either direction so you can see how it engage to the 2 different mechanisms then you will see how it works. Good luck.

Hi just got a set neptune model mah3000aww the

your main control board and the actual lock,
open the three screws on the top of the control board..
you will see the machine control
without disconnnecting the wires , inspect the board as closely as uou can your looking for physical burn on the board,,,, this usually takes place on the lower left area of the board
there you will see a burnt resistor, r-11
you will need to replace that control

Washer will wash but not spin

Sounds like the control board is bad. take the back panel off the control panel and look at the R11 resistor and see if it burnt. If it is replace the control board and the door wax motor (in the locking mechanism)
