    Is the machine getting louder on the spin cycle? It may be the bearings going bad and water is migrating into the bearing cavity and flushing some grease or rust out.

The bearing is located outside the drum and behind the large pulley. There is a cover panel that houses the bearing so you can try to change the bearing or repack it with grease if it is still in good condition. Generally it is not possible for the water level to get high enough to damage the bearing in the washer.

My maytag neptune washer is spotting my laundry - especially light colored towels with possibly an oil spot - about the size of a dime or sometimes quarter. I tried running a cleaning disc thru it twice ,...


f you use cold water wash and rinses regularly it may have an accumulation of un-dissolved detergent, dirt/grime and body oils stuck on the inside wall of the outer tub. When washing whites I assume that you are using Hot water and it could be causing some of the accumulation to break loose in small clumps and re-depositing on the clothes.

I'm getting small orange spots/stains on my clothing after washing them in my Maytag washing machine. it is a 2010 machine too. Any thoughts as to what could be causing the stains?


Unless there is a child's crayon or something similar causing it, then suspect that the agitator shaft seal, or the drum seal is leaking oil into the drum. Hopefully, there is still warranty on the machine. Good luck!

I have a maytag front load neptune. The door is locked but does not show that it is lock on the panel, it will not wash but will not open either, how can I get the door open?


they seem to have a issue with the doors on theses machines whirlpool owns maytag now
they were sued very bad for theses issue
The older Neptunes, such as the 2000 Stackers, MAH3000, MAH4000 and the MAH5500A series had some issues which I am sure Maytag has corrected these issues in the newer machines...

There are thousands who have been burnt by the door latch wax motor failure. What happens is the machine will stop spinning because the door latch will fail to lock. Deep inside it is caused by the mechanism that locks the door. The wax motor will draw too much current and damage the control board by burning a resistor (R11) and a triac (Q6).

However, if Neptune owners know to replace the door latch wax motor they can prevent the control board failure from happening. Please tell everyone you know about this important fact.

The older Neptune's also have a couple additional issues such as the moldy door boot and the reliability of the motor / motor control board. All three of these issues were involved in the class action lawsuit a couple of years ago. See http://www.neptunewaxmotor.com for more Neptune information.

In addition, I just now started offering a bearing and seal kit for the Neptunes because when the bearings fail Maytag wants you to replace the whole outer tub for a service quote of around $900 or so. Why replace the whole outer tub? Just replace the worn bearings and 12002022 seal... See http://www.neptunebearing.com for the Neptune bearing kit information.

The older Neptunes run great once you take care of some small details...

Bleach spots with HE detergent


I have learned the hard way that after I wash a load with bleach, I have to remove the dispenser drawer and wash it out. The bleach in the compartment isn't always entirely used so when you wash another load, then it gets the remainder that wasn't flushed out.

Maytag 5500 AWW Turns off randomly shortly after starting


Check out the motor control board near the floor on the right side. These have a high failure rate on the Neptunes. Maytag redesigned both the motor and motor control board to be more reliable. While inspecting this board, you are looking for a blown 10 amp fuse and /or burnt electronic components. If you have either... then you will need the the new motor conversion kit which includes the new motor, new motor control board and the wire harness. What you describe are signs the motor control board is nearing its end of life...

The kit takes about an hour to install. See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for disassembly photos so you can inspect the motor control board.

Rinse cycle nonexistant!!! HELP!!!


Yes the wax motor does need tobe changed at the same time.If you see the burnt spot, your control board has got to be replaced (Maytag insists that the door latch wax motor is partly to blame ,so they've modified it and in the last 6 years there have only been a few Neptunes that this problem re occurred after changing these 2 parts
