Maytag neptune model number mah4000aww

I have this particular model and when it comes to the spin cycle it has a hrd time starting and makes like a monaing noise and then it will go and then stop and the clothes are sopping wet when its done and the water isnt draining out but if i take everyhting out it will do the spin cycle fine on an empty drum..

    i took the pump out and took the hose off and the big rubber drain thingy from the drum to the pump nothing at all in it pump appears to work fine i was told that it is the bearings in the drum that keep it from spinning because they are worn, but in order to replace them bearings im told that i need to replace the entire outer shell of the drum! 600 dollar part... new unit for that price pretty ridiculous, my first thought was the pump also like i said i took that off first, but that seems to be working right, its just not spinning it out to make for it to be able to drain. make sense??

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

Strange growling sounds on rinse and spin cycle


I would check the motor control board located near the floor on the right side for burnt components. The motor is a 3 phase unit and if one of the phases are working the motor will growl and won't be able to supply the proper torque.

See www.neptunehelp.com for disassembly photos and for more info on the faulty door latch wax motor.

Maytag neptune MAH4000AWW Very loud noise when spinning


I found this on line ... 6/15/09 . Does your Maytag Neptune front loader sound like a runaway freight train when it is in high speed spin cycle? 2. Is your Neptune getting so loud that you cannot be in the same room while it is spinning your clothes? It sounds like your bearings may need some attention if you answered YES to the questions See www.neptunebearing.com ... Frank frankbusch@comcast.net
