SOURCE: Maytag Neptune bearing noise

John,

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...

Loud noise on spin cycle only clothes dry good


Sounds like your bearings and seal need replaced... See Neptune Bearing for information on the Maytag Neptune bearing and 12002022 seal kit. You can also rent a special tool kit that includes the bearings, 12002022 seal kit, bearing spacer, step by step DVD, etc.

I would not run neptune with bad bearings too prevent more damage to the Neptune spinner support, Motor drive system...

I hope this helps you...

Maytag Neptune Model #mah5500BWW We know it a bearing that's causing the loud noise when it spins. How do you remove the tub to get to the bearing?


There are 2 bearings and a seal. To remove inner tub you'll need to use a hammer/mallet or special tools, and you'll need to basically strip the washer to get to the inner tub. Maytag (Whirlpool) does not sell bearings separately, look them up on ebay, use "maytag neptune bearings" as a key phrase. IIRC, the special tool was also available on ebay for lease. Instructions on how to replace bearings are available there also. If no luck on ebay, try googlee for the same key phrase.

Good luck,
Vlad

Maytag Neptune TL clutch problems- Class Action Lawsuit??


I sounds like this is a common problem with the Maytag Neptune TL after about 3-5 years. Mine finally went out yesterday after several months of bearings getting louder all of the time. It looks like the bearings and the controller are gone. What happened to washing machines that last 15 - 20 years?

Neptune washer bearing problem Tony tool seems to over simplify


I rented the tool and it worked fine. The replacement steel washer had an extra rubber insert that took me a few assemble/test/disassemble cycles to find. That cost me time and the $90 late surcharge on the rental. All told though, it went as described online and in the dvd that came with the rental. Just see that the replacement parts fully match what you are replacing.

My question is whether someone else has done this and had the new bearings last more than a couple months. Two and a half months in, the washer is winding up as when the first bearings went bad. This is not a good sign, and I question the quality of the bearings.

Any feedback?

You peobably need bearings... See www.neptunebearing.com for replacement bearings and they also rent a special tool designed for the Neptune bearings and it includes use of a DVD that shows you how to disassemble Neptune, replace bearings and install the seal kit.

Grinding noise


The Neptune bearings are an interesting breed... Maytag wants you to replace the whole outer tub which includes the bearings installed for $180 or so. You can replace the bearings yourself. See www.tonytool.com to see how it is done. The tool costs $379 or so... but it is designed for the service tech. not the d.i.y.er. But watching the video can give you an idea of how to do it yourself. The bearings were available on www.neptunewaxmotor.com for about $35.00. You will also need the Maytag seal kit 12002022 to complete the job whether you decide to replace bearings or the outer tub.
