Question about Maytag Washing Machines
My wife thinks it could be a belt. I think it smelled of buring plastic and seemed to be coming from the control unit.
Shut down and unplug machine a.s.a.p.! It could be your door latch wax motor failing which will burn the R11 (resistor) and Q6 (triac) on the machine control board. You did not mention which Neptune you had... If it is a MAH3000, MAH4000, MAH5500A or a 2000 stacker and you have not replaced the door latch wax motor (12002535) then your time is up. See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for details for the repair kit or you can purchase a new control board and 12002535 wax motor and be up running quickly before the clothes pile get too high.
It could be the seal and/or bearings if the machine is starting to get loud in the high speed spin cycle. If so, See www.neptunebearing.com for the seal and bearing kit plus they offer a special Neptune bearing tool for rent called the tony tool. A Maytag technician will want to charge you $900 to replace the whole outer tub? Why replace it when just the bearings and seal kit need changed?
