What is the problem? My FAV6800AWW had DC/UC error code problem in spin mode. Lubed the clutch needle bearings and this fixed the issue. This was fairly easy fix, just very tight working area. If this is your problem I will give you the details. Washer was purchased in 7/05 this is a common issue with this washer.

Service manual is recommended for us rookies. I found one on line or I believe it can be requested from Maytag.

Our washer just started making loud popping noises while running. It still washes just fine

Some washing machines are made with hardened plastic parts instead of metal. You may have a plastic knuckle( used during the wash cycle to aggitate the items) that has worn a bit and needs replaced. I had the same issue with our Kenmore a few years back. The replacement knuckle was $100 plus tax. If you are handy with instructions and your hands it is something that can be done at home with the proper tools and time. I had no time to fix ours and the service charge cost $150.

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 washer doesn't drain out the excess water. I

Check your drain pump. It could be as something as something is stuck in it. If there is nothing, then I would replace the pump. If you are a handy person or know someone that is they could do it.

Water between the drum even when not on

Water between the drum is a common problem with not only front load but top load as well.
Front load washers such as the neptune have an airtight/water tight door which will hold moisture in the machine when closed. Try opening door and keep open between loads. In addition, a monthly cleaner specific for the front load machine will help this problem

Maytag Neptune MAH7500AWW will not fill from hot water side

check out the hot water tap is on then check out the hot water valve for continuity (poss 27 ohms) then check for blockages in the small inline filter at the valve.
