Question about Washing Machines

2 Answers

Spin cycle I have a maytag neptune front loading washer, model # mah8700aww. On the spin cycle it sounds like a jet engine and moves freely all over the laundry room. I just recently opened up the back seeing nothing wrong or any loose parts. The shocks are intact and the drum seems fine. Am I missing something else to look at?

    I just moved into a home that has the same machine and was horrified to find that the washer moves... and sounds like there is construction going on on the 2nd floor during the spin cycle



    did you get an answer to your question yet? I'm trying to avoid the expense of having a service call from Maytag repair.

Rear shocks tend to wear faster than the front.
Try switching the front shocks to the rear. If this helps, plan on
buying 2 new ones. You will have time to search for the cheapest price... typically 25 USD @ /www.appliancepartspros.com/

I have the washer too and it does the samething like a jet engin taking off. what gets me is they recalled the MAH9700AWW but wont recall the MAH6700AWW for the same reason. I wrote a report to the goverment website that handles recalls. I havent heard anything yet. but i already replaced the inner glass 2 times not gona do it again. but my washer is only 5 years old.

We just installed the MAH9700AWM Maytag Neptune and got an error code OE? We cancelled cycle, etc still getting issue.


The "OE" error code means the control detected the water level in the machine is above the overflow level. According to your description the first failure suspect is the water valve possibly stuck. Perform the troubleshooting as described in the tech sheets.

Maytag Neptune Front Load Washer Model MAH4000AWW low last spin


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

Maytage Neptune E3 code - Model MAH8700AWW - machine won't finish cycle


“E3” code – Machine control is attempting to drive the motor but is not seeing any tach response. Visual Check shows motor is not moving. (Locked or Hall Sensor fault.)
Possible causes of ‘E3’ codes: 1. Spin drum stuck – Verify that the spinner moves freely to eliminate this cause. 2. Hall Sensor fails or is loose – When the Hall Sensor fails or becomes dislodged, the control doesn't recognize that the motor is spinning and shuts down. The result will likely be an “E3” code in the worst case, or “SUdS” if it is only getting a partial rpm reading. Check wire harness connector(s) to motor.
Hall Sensor – PCB that is located on the back of the motor that senses motor rpm. It is not a separate part, but rather an integral part of the motor.

My Maytag Neptune fnt loader Model# MAH8700AWW Ser# 12227145GR


I have the same problem. The technician seems to think it could be the water is not emptying during cycles. It keeps adding water as the cycles continue and therefore over flowing the tube when it spin. He thinks it could be a water level sensor. Not sure at this point.

Maytag Neptune MAH6700AWW spins but not fast enough


Too much laundry in your machine. Try a smaller load and see if you have the same problem
