Question about Maytag Neptune MAH6500A Front Load Washer
I purchased my maytag neptune washer and dryer (washer model # MAH6500AWW) in nov 2006.
it currently sounds like a jet is coming into my home when the spin cycle is on.
i had a maytag/whirpool technician to my home today (nov20/08) and much to my surprise the repairs are going to cost me more than i paid for this "top of the line" unit.
outter tub $535.81--spinner assembly $144.89--spinner support $148.03--washer $5.04--lip seal $47.23+$180.00 in labor==$1244.12
this unit is 2 years old and it's going to cost me more to repair it than i paid for it only 2 years ago!!
i know i'm not the only 1 that has had this problem and Maytag has pretty much told me.....i'm outa luck!!
i thought by purchasing this "top of the line" unit and with it being a Maytag that i would get longer than 2 years out of it....clearly i was wrong.
i do not recommend any Maytag appliance because they don't stand behind their products!
two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news

Testimonial: "Response was helpful to figure out our options!"
SOURCE: Maytag Washer Model LAT9416AAE -
The usual charge when i have repaired that is around $375
in addation to the seal a tub bearing would be required since the seal has leaked it very likely has rusted the bearing. To replace those both the inner and outer tub have to come apart,the breakdown would be
Service Fee $75
labor and service fees vary from company to company and that is probably low,yet it is a great washer and may be well worth investing in to repair
