Question about Maytag Neptune MDE5500AY Electric Dryer

1 Answer

My maytag (#LDE9304ACE) sounds like a popcorn machine

Turns on with a loud clunking, like something that spins is stripped.  Then it sounds like a popcorn machine and is really loud.  I noticed when I changed the belt that the big wheel in the front left (I think this is the drum?) is slightly wobbly.  Does this need to be replaced?

Why does my washer making a VERY loud noise while spinning. So loud you could hardly stay in same room. Ususally its pretty quiet. Then I heard something that sounded like a gear (?) being stripped or

2 possible things. the spinner drum bearings are giving up. This can show as a rusty water dribble under the machine.
The motor bearings are giving up.
Both of which require a good DIYer or an appliance engineer.

My Maytag dryer MDE9606AZW has started to squeak, sounds like a fast spinning squeak, sometimes loud and sometimes quieter. What might be causing this and how do I fix it?

It's likely your drum ring bearing has worn out. It's a strip of plastic that keeps the metal parts from rubbing has the barrel turns.

Clunking/thumping with spin cycle, reduces as spin speed increase

It's hard to tell without looking at the washer. But my first response would be that the transmission is wearing out. Inside the plastic cover for the adgitator is a metal drive stem. This assembly has a pulley on the bottom where your motor attaches to; inside the bottom of your washer. It is quite common after many years that these go bad. Have you ever noticed unexplained grease or other stains on your clothes after they came out of the wash?

Makes a very loud sound when in the final spin cycle. Model MAH5500BWW

The sound of the tub spinning is a smooth and not ruff sound. and with speed it sounds like a 747 taking off ( when your inside not outside ) when the brgs go bad it will sound like a train on the tracks when your waithing to cross. ( very loud as it speeds up and very ruff. if you remove the 4 screws in the back can ck just below the center shaft. there may be brown water stains on the base frame . / water has got in the main brg . and the brg's are failing . hope this helped. mm. ( could be the drain pump / ck for coins ect. drain pump runs just before and during spin/ but not soloud like brg's.. **** .

Wont spin and makes a noise

def needs a pully to add tension in order to spin. reconnect adn watch what it does. where does noise appear to come from??? sometimes the lower most "helix" strips out on machine and sounds as if theres amototr boat in you machine.Its the bottom most item on the centraal shaft of the transmission held o by a 1/2 bolt. if either that or the pulley above it strip it wont dissengage the brake assy and will "motor boat" with no action from transmission
