Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

My Maytag MAH4000AWW washer jumps around on the spin cycle ...

After a move to a new house, I brought along my Maytag front loading washer because I was so happy with it. It had worked perfectly at the prior home. Now, when it spins it's nearly out of control. If I sit on it, it still jumps all over the place. I've leveled it, opened it and looked inside to see any possible loose parts, and so far I've found nothing. It also doesn't seem to be pumping out all of the water (I can see a puddle when I open the front door. Any likely culprits?

first of all if this is a new washer you need to make sure all the shipping straps or bolts are off. one way to find out is to open the door reach and grab on to the tub it supposed to be able to move up down and side to side. if not then the shipping bolts has not been removed.

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.

If there are no errors then the motor controller thinks everything is ok.
Do you hear the motor spinning?

the belt in the back may be bad or jumped off.
If you want to look for yourself open the top panel.(3 screws in top rear)
