Question about Maytag Neptune MAH6500A Front Load Washer
Have a maytag neptune that makes an incredibly lound whinning noise in the final spin mode. Anyone experience this and what was the fix?

What are the first two numbers of your serial number i.e.10 through 17. I’m an owner like you not a repair person….. but I have a very good feel for machine issues and the repair of the machine. See my ratings under this nick name FAV6800AWDIY and my old original nick name dh1200s.
The biggest problem with FIXYA is they don’t ask the user for Model or S/N of the machine. I can’t believe how many professional repair folks jump in with comments and they have no clue as to what machine is being discussed.
You may end up going with a replacement if it’s the Outer Tub Bearings. I would remove the tub and try to replace before I would junk a $1000 but that’s me you would need to decide. This a weak repair area for me I have not replaced the outer tub bearings on any of the three FAV66800A’s I own but I feel confident I could do it. I buy these cheap and repair for resale.
Have you had the Clutch Pulley removed/replaced in the past for dC or uC error code failure in Spin Cycle?
I would drop the Clutch Pulley out and clean up/re-lube the One-Way Roller Clutches and check for signs of a tub seal leak. Then with the Clutch Pulley out spin up the Wash Basket CCW as fast as you can by hand and listen for bearing noise of the Outer Tub Bearings. Let’s make sure the One-Way Roller clutch bearing is not the bearing noise source. See this post for removing the clutch and doing maintenance and replacement. Clutch Fix Post
I have to post rest of this comment as a comment. This forum is not geared up for DIY responses.

SOURCE: The bearings in the Maytag
If you think that there is no shake or play in the bearings a good wash with kerosene or diesel will take away all the dirt that causes the noise. The use light grease/heavy oil (90) to fill into the bearings.
Tip: repeat the washing with the diesel, use a good small brush and hold a tray under to pour the diesel and collect on to the tray till the noise subsides.
However if the bearings are still noisy then I think you need not replace the drum .
If Helpful credit me for the tip.

SOURCE: Can you replace the outer
yes you can but will warn you it is a small project to do... the unit will require to be dismantled in order to get to the outer bearings... the lower unit taken apart and tub springs, drain hoses and taken out of machine to access everything... can be done but is about a 2 hour project if it is your first time to do it...
