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?

Maytag Neptune Front-Load Washers Front Panel and Top Cover Removal


Most of the internal components of Maytag Neptune Front-Load Washers can be accessed with the removal of the front panel and lifting of the top cover. The top cover can only be lifted after the front panel is removed. Make sure that power to the machine is disconnected prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

The first step is the removal of the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly. Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the machine.

The top cover is held on each side of the cabinet by hold down brackets. Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screws holding each bracket then swing the bracket to the outside and unhook it from the slot in the top cover lip.

Remove the four screws securing the dispenser bezel to the top cover then lift the bezel off. Open the door then lift the front of the top cover and tilt it toward the rear of the machine.

The internal components of the machine can now be accessed. Reinstall the top cover and the front panel in reverse of the removal steps.

This procedure is also applicable to Maytag Square-Front (1998) and Sloped-Front (1999) Dryers (Maytag Neptune Dryers). The only difference is the dispenser bezel removal.

Check under the machine and locate the adjustable feet. Screw the feet in as far as practical, the further the better. Feel the machine for steadiness and rocking and adjust the foot that shows clearance until it is firmly on the ground and the machine no longer rocks. Check that machine to see if it is level, with a front loader this is not critical, but it should rather not be out of true by a large amount, the important thing is that there must not be any movement on the machine's feet and the machine should not stand too high on its feet either.

Make sure machine is level and all four leveling legs are solidly touching floor at the same time. Make sure leveling leg locking nuts are screwed up to lock legs in place. Check floor for firmness. (try bouncing up and down in front of washer to see if the floor has excessive give.) You may need to re-inforce floor. Wash larger loads. On bulky items, use a lower spin speed. You can re-spin at a higher speed after cycle is complete if you want them spun out better. (some models have a pump and spin only setting, on others, just turn on the power and then only touch the spin speed button to select a 14 minute pump and spin only cycle, then touch the start button.) The only other thing is that the new LG washers use a balance ring now, which makes the machine perform much smoother. (I know because I gave my old LG to my son and replaced it with the newer model, which now runs much quieter, in the exact same location as the old one.)

Top loader Maytag washer cannot balance load


The shock absorbers that hold the tank are broken. Then the load will move the washer all over the place.
Look online for an exploded diagram and order the new shocks for it

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.
