Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

Open Question

Maytag washer inside drum has dropped, is rubbing plastic off, sometimes smokes on heavy load during spin

I took each back baffles off and checked the bolt. When I lifted up on each bolt, the drum moved as expected, so I don't think it is the support arm. What else causes an inner drum to drop. I can lift the inner drum up a good 1+ inch

SOURCE: Maytag top load clothes washer tub spins hard

Hi, You can unsnap the plastic splash ring and see if something is between the tubs. The inner tub turns rather hard anyways. The agitator might have a 1/4" screws in the side of it to hold it onto the shaft of the transmission. If not, just pull the agitator up real hard.
Under the agitator is a spanner nut that holds the inner tub in place. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Hole in Maytag Neptune front load washer door and flaking or melting of door.


Hello,
I've owned the same Neptune since 1999 and had this problem happen to me twice, the first time the inside molded plastic door melted through in a circular pattern and had to be replaced. The fact that it was circular indicates that something was rubbing during the high speed spin. That something was a stiff bottomed duffle bag that was rubbing on the plastic door during high speed spin. The washer was full of other clothes that didn't allow the duffle bag enough room in the washer tub, hence it pressed against the plastic door. The second time it happened I got a circular groove melted in, but not through, the plastic door... caused this time by a small child's back pack. I would make sure "rigid" items have enough room to "float" in the tub cavity by not putting in other clothing that over packs the washer.

I left a screw in my jacket that got washed now the screw is lodged between the steel drum and plastic shell, you can hear it scraping when you spin the drum, how do i get to it and get it out


Try to remove one of the plastic baffles inside the spin basket. They are held in place by one phillips head screw. If you take that screw out you should be able to slide the baffle toward you and remove it. Sometimes, but not always, in manufacturing they move a little catch to keep the baffle from moving; in that case it will be hard to slide it. If you can get one baffle out, you will have a pretty good size opening to look for your screw.

I am having the same problem.
Did you find a solution.
Our washer is just a little over 2 years old and I am trying to decide if I should just cut my losses and never buy a GE product ever again.

likely a rubber gasket slipped off the groove.... try taking it apart and slipping the gasket back on.

heavy loads have more force during the spin cycle.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II drum does not spin.


Depending on your washing machine model, the drum and motor are connected by 2 plastice yellow circular pieces, with a black rubber washer in the middle with holes where the pegs or rods go into. The 2 plastic circular pieces have 3 pegs or rods if you will, that connect to the black rubber washer via 3 holes. Sometimes, one or both of the 2 plastic circular piece pegs get broken off or the rubber washer cracks and breaks apart, so that the motor will not turn the drum. If thats the case, you can purchase the 2 circular pieces and black washer piece as a set.

Maytag washer bangs during spin cycle


chances are you had a blockage in the pump and it tried to spin with the water still in the drum. check the bottom hose and filter for blockages so it does not occur again.
