    Thanks for trying, but the diagramsin this manual show 4 completely different shocks than what our washer has. Mine only has two in the rear and they bolt through the floor of the washer not through bolts.

    Look at page 7-8 of this manual. IS this more like it? http://dl.dropbox.com/u/33507267/Maytag%...

    The part in the exploded view looks like it, not page 7&* however. I know the part number is 22001988. My main question is how do you reach the top nuts of the shocks? Do you have to remove the innet tub to reach them. I put new front and rear bearings 2 weeks ago solved that problem wish I had replaced the shocks at the same time.

SOURCE: MAYTAG NEPTUNE FRONT LOAD WASHER MAH5500BWW

Central bearing and seal are damaged. Very expensive repair and very expensive parts. Maytag does not sell bearings separately, they're only available with the outer tub, which is $400-$500; Repair itself is another 2-3 hours of hard work. Do the math...

Maytag Neptune front load washer model MAH3000AW, load during spin cycle


YOU MEAN LOUD DURING SPIN CYCLE? IF THAT SO, WHAT KIND OF NOISE? BANGING NOISE MEANS YOU HAVE UNBALANCED LOAD OR ONE OF THE SUSPENSION IS BAD OR FELL OFF. GRINDING NOISE MEANS YOU HAVE A BAD TUB BEARING, TO REPLACE THAT, YOU HAVE TO REPLACE THE WHOLE REAR TUB ASSEMBLY, VERY COSTLY. MEANS YOU PROBABLY BE BUYING A NEW WASHER.

We have a Maytag Neptune model MAH5500BWW. It recently acts like it's unbalanced. After checking the obvious things, we have replaced the strutts on the bottom. It still is unbalanced and won't spin out...


Mine was not spinning and shutting off at the 7 minute mark. I took off the door and then the front panel. I reached underneath to the pump. There is a soft black rubber hose going from the tub to the pump. I squeezed it several times and must of unplugged the pump because it worked after that. Zero$ spent.

Very loud spin cycle


The link below, courtesy of www.repairclinic.com, shows that the rear bearing comes with the outer tub only and is very pricey! I have been unable to find a service agency that offers just the bearing. Very aggravating. www.maytag.com would be a good place to define your issue.

My PAVT920AWW won't spin hard enough to get all the water out


I have had teh same problem. I calledin the Maytag service and they did replace something out of goodwill but the technician told me that the load balance sensor is sensitive. If your load is unbalanced then the machine will spin slowly so it does not walk across the floor. With larger loads the wieght will make the machine bang against the sides and walk.

The solution is quite simple. Make sure the load is balanced. The agitator has a way of unbalancing a load from time to time so you need to do this manually. It is a very rare occurance and it is best to make sure your load goes into the machine balanced first.
