Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Netptune MAH4000AWW washer drum knocking. On inspection, drum is turning off axis and the front, where woven material is located, has been torn from its out of balance rotation. It seems like whatever the bearing system is for this model - one side bearing must be worn or broken for the drum to move that far off axis (approx. 1 1/2")

What types of materials are used to make body armour?


Body armour can be made from a number of different types of woven or non-woven materials. One of the first fibres used for modern ballistic-resistant material was Kevlar , which is made by DuPont. Other materials include Spectra , made by Honeywell (formerly AlliedSignal); Twaron , made by Accordis (formerly Akzo Nobel). These materials are manufactured in a variety of styles and can be woven or non-woven (laminated). Hard (non-fabric) armour plates can be made from a number of materials, including metals, ceramics and other composite materials.

My Maytag Neptune MAH4000AWW sounds like a train during the spin cycle. Are the bearings replacable


It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

MY NEPTUNE WASHER IS MAKING NOISE DURING SPIN CYCLE WHAT PART DO NEED TO REPLACE? MODEL # MAH4000AWW


If the noise starts before the drum starts to turn it might be the pump is obstructed. If it starts soon as the drum starts to turn then might be the drum bearing. If it is a knocking vibrating sound open the door and grasp inner drum try moving up and down and side to side . If there is any movement aside from the whole mechanism then the spider that holds the shaft to the drum is broken . Need a tech

It seems that the drum is spinning off its axis


When a front load washer does not spin properly, the problem can be caused by failed axle that connects the pulley to the wash drum, or failed shock or (possibly) broken suspension springs.
Remove washer top, inspect the two or four springs holding the washer drum up. The whole drum should be able to "bounce" a little, when you press down on it.
Remove the lower front panel and with a flashlight, inspect the two shock absorbers. Both should attach up to the wash drum, but it is common for them to break, especially if the front load washer has been moved from one house to another without re-installing the lower brackets and the long bolts that secure the drum during the move.
If the springs and shocks are not damaged, with the top removed look down into the rear area. You will see a large pulley with a belt on it. If you see brown/black grease marks all over or obvious problem when you try to turn the pulley, you have found the major problem.
Please get back to me with what you find. OK?

Whirlpool Duet WFW9200SQ has knocking sound located under drum under or near motor. Knocks during spin up and down cycle and on last highest spin.


the problem is a cracked spindle on the back of the drum. It most likely also tore up the grey plastic front shield.The only thing to do is throw the machine out sine the drum cost parts onle is over $400 for drum, and over $400 for the front plastic.l

Clothes torn


  Probably the dryer,  These dryers have a paper thin drum.   Have one on order right now for a customer.  They crack easily.  Inspect dryer drum closely for cracks.
