Is replacing the bearing in the drum a big expensive job?

I have a Maytag neptune washer and dryer. I received an answer from you and I was very satisfied with it. I will check the pulley and see if it needs to be tightened. If that is okay, I would like to know if replacing the bearing in the drum is an expensive job?

What is expensive to some is not expensive to others. IT will cost you are 95 a hour plus parts and labor. You are looking at roughly 150 to 200 if not more. You can do it yourself if you are a handy one. It just is a lot of work for someone with no expeirence but it can be done. Tighten the pulley first and see what happens

Maytag Neptune Dryer MDE55000AZW As the drum is turning. there is a scraping noise . Not all the time, just as a certain point in the drum hist a certain point in the rotation. Help???

Sounds to me like your bearing and belt would be going out on the dryer you have to take the whole drum out to change this bearing set and belt not the easiest job to do.

Noisy bearing while spinning

The seal in the drum has failed allowing water to leak into the bearings causing them to rust. Once the bearings are no longer round, the bearing noise will get louder. To replace, the washer needs to be taken apart and the drum needs to be removed in order to replace the bearings. Can be a difficult and expensive repair. Get a few estimates before deciding whether it is worth reparing. Sorry.

Maytag neptune washer noisy when in spin cycle. also there's a small hole located in the back of the machine on the drum with metal shavings coming out of it. The noise is a loud grinding noise. could...

You have a bad rear bearing in the outer tub. The entire outer tub would need to be replaced to resolve this issue.
Check your owner's manual to see what kind of warranty you have on this part. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you as this is an expensive repair!
Good luck!!

Inside tumbler is loose - how do you tighten

If the tumbler is loose and you can move it from side to side the bearings in the rear of the drum may be going bad. The bearings aren't an expensive part, the job is just time consuming because you need to remove the outer casing of the dryer and take the drum out. The sides of the dryer stay together the front should come straight off and if the top doesn't come straight off it will tip back on hinges so the wires stay intact. You may need two people to replace the bearings once you get the drum off because they are generally screwed in from inside the drum.

It sounds like the drum bearing needs replaced it squeals lik, is

No, not usually, not that expensive as far as parts, can be time consumeing, but not a difficult job, check all the drum support rollers,bearings,bushings, slides what ever is used in your model.
Do a quick once over observation while in there, check belt, pulley, idler,etc., clean out fire causing lint and other foreign matter that shouldn't be there, and then you should be good to go for a while.
Good luck !

Progressively louder on spin maytag neptune model# MAH5500BWW serial#C8028996LC

You have a bad rear drum bearing ( unfortunantly , so do I ) . This involves removing the inner drum and outer drum . The complete rear of the outer drum , has to be replaced , due to the bearing is already installed in the new one . Very expensive to have done and very time consuming to do yourself . You probably should invest in a different washer . Front load washer manufacturers , have not come up with a way to support the front of an inner drum as well as supporting the rear also . Until this happens , rear bearing problems and excess expense for repair , will continue to be the downfall of front loading washers .

Drum bearings need replaced

you can try to replace just the bearings yourself .. big job but if you want to do it check out tonytool.

you can replace the entire drum assembly with bearings already in but the parts alone are over $500.

I have the same problem and will buy a new washer !

Neptune washer

Why?Do you understand that the bearings are locked into the outer tub and you have to replace that,the outer tub.Very expensive repair that will most likely be almost half the price you had paid for the machine new.My advise is DONT FIX this if you have a bearing problem ,because I honestly believe in letting the customer know the truth.Sorry, but a 15 year old re- conditioned Maytag will out last any Neptune ever made.
