Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a maytag neptune front load washer and it is making a loud noise during a spin cycle. If it was a car I would say it had a bad wheel bearing. The unit is 10 years old.

It is not a car,but,it is a bad bearing. At the age of your machine it would be too costly to repair even if you did it yourself.

My Maytag Neptune washer is extremely loud during the spin cycle and the detergent dispensing door is broke, How much would I be looking at out of pocket to get it fix or would it be cheaper to replace it...


The loud noise during the spin cycle is probally due to a bearing failure. Not sure how much it would cost to fix, but Maytag does not sell you the bearings but would sell you a new wash tub with the bearings installed for over $600! Add the labor costs which would be a lot since the machine needs to be taken apart to install a new tub, and you would be ahead of the game getting a new washer.

My washer is making a horrible noise when it goes into the spin cycle. It sounds like it is about to explode.


The bearings on those washers go bad and the washer gets very loud during the spin cycle. It probably won't explode but for what it might cost to fix it you might want to blow it up yourself

Loud noises during spin cycles


Hello, If the noise is a squealing or grinding sound, you are likely looking at a bad seal and bearing.
If the noise is a knocking sound, it's more likely a suspension or out of balance condition.
Thanks

There is 2 possible problems. 1. Pump will make noise as soon as the drain and spin starts. 2. Rear bearing this noise usually starts later in cycle as the drum gets up to final speed. The rear bearing of coarse is the most expensive of the two as it is part of the outer tub.

Maytag Neptune front load washer model MAH3000AW, load during spin cycle


YOU MEAN LOUD DURING SPIN CYCLE? IF THAT SO, WHAT KIND OF NOISE? BANGING NOISE MEANS YOU HAVE UNBALANCED LOAD OR ONE OF THE SUSPENSION IS BAD OR FELL OFF. GRINDING NOISE MEANS YOU HAVE A BAD TUB BEARING, TO REPLACE THAT, YOU HAVE TO REPLACE THE WHOLE REAR TUB ASSEMBLY, VERY COSTLY. MEANS YOU PROBABLY BE BUYING A NEW WASHER.

Loud noise during washing/rinsing cycles


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.

Can anyone help.???

No, I'll tell you before forking out $ $ for some bad news.The noise is your bearing. You have to replace the outer tub .Its not going to be repaired any other way.The idiots who designed this washer made this a non servicable bearing.The labor is high not to mention the outer tub is also.REPLACE THE OUTER TUB.
