The noise could be from a loose wire harness, plastic purse-lock wire harness retainer on the upper hose hitting the top cover ir a plastic injector mold standoff on the outer tub bearing housing, also a flat spot in the belt could cause a tapping noise. Something between the outer tub and wash basket. I have had to remove items lodged in the drain tube between the pump and tub, like bra under wires. Sometimes you can squeeze the tube and feel objects the ate lodged. I always take the tube off the tub side and run my finger all the way down to the pump impeller to make sure. I also check the I can spin the impeller and the nothing is in the pump. Hard to say with out being there. Where do you think the noise is coming from top , bottom , left , or right side?
The bearings are not replaceable, cheaper to replace the washer. The reason I tell this is the bearing are part of the outer tub and to replace that would cost as much as a replacement unit. Just the tub with bearing Part number 22004465 will cost 500.93 plus bulk freight to get. If you had your time, cost of the part and freight, with no other problem you could have invested over 700.00 and you can replace the unit for that.
I am sorry for the bad news, but this repair will take 2-3 hours to complete and it not advisable to someone not trained. Difficult and time consuming..
could be the bearing. does it sound like a freight train when the machine is in spin cycle. if your machine is still under warranty or contract, call it in for service. if its not, then you might want to think about purchasing a new machine.
sounds like your bearing is shot is this a fridgedair? does it sound like a 747 or freight train? if yes might as well throw it away I would say your looking at about 5-6 hundred dollars to repair you will need the basket and outer tub the reason is your bearing is compressed from the factory in your outer tub and your basket shaft goes through the bearing and usually gets eaten up by the bearing
I just replaced the bearings on my Front loader Maytag MAH5500B, as it sounded like a freight train during the spin cycle. The bearing replacement fixed the train problem.
NEW PROBLEM NOW: It's been about a month now since the bearing job and now something is clicking/binding when you spin the back belt wheel. I have taken the belt off and carefully move the wheel and I still get this clicking noise. It sounds as if someone is hitting the plastic drum that the tub is surrounded by. I really doubt it's the bearings this soon, as the sound is not the same! No leaks or metal shavings to speak of or rubbing of the belt wheel.
Seems like it's more noticeable during the wash/rinse cycles then the spin.

. Does your Maytag Neptune front loader sound like a runaway freight train when it is in high speed spin cycle?
2. Is your Neptune getting so loud that you cannot be in the same room while it is spinning your clothes?
It sounds like your bearings may need some attention if you answered YES to the questions
