Question about Maytag MAH6700AWW Neptune Front-Load Washer

1 Answer

Older model - drain cycle does not work.

Good evening.

We have an older model Neptune (8 yrs). I recently replaced the bearings on the tub, beyond that, solid performer. My lovely bride recently washed a rug that ultimately disintegrated inside the machine - leaving her to pick out pieces of rug from the drain holes inside the tub. Although the machine still runs, it will not drain prior to launching into its' spin cycle. It basically hums for a while during what I beleive would normally be the drain cycle. I've run it through several cycles, as well, unplugged the machine (HOPING TO RESET SOMETHING). But to no avail, it's still full of water. Is this a repairable item? is it possibly a circuit/signal issue on the circuit board? Something a DIY can repair? Please help me before she drives me to drink heavily?

It souds as if the pump is out on it, they are fairly easy to replace. Just go down to your local appliance repair shop and supply them with the model number and tell em that you need the pump. Also check the pump and make sure the other half of the rug isn't stopping it up.

I have a older model washer,a 96 or,97 top loading type...8 cycle Frigidaire., it does not want to agitate ,the water is slowly draining in the floor,I noticed it is coming out of the bottom top around...


Hello Ruth Walker - From what you are describing it sounds like the tub seal is leaking. Typically, if so, the tub bearing is more than likely also bad or faulty. Repairing the seal and/or bearing may be a costly repair. I would strongly recommend contacting a local professional to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause. You can often locate a qualified tech through the manufacturer website.

I have a maytag neptune, model # mah3000aww. Its making a loud howling sound during spin cycle.


It sounds like the drum bearings may need replacing. This is not a small job, so be sure of what you're doing before you attempt to fix it yourself. Please feel free to get back to me for instructions on replacing the seal and bearings.

Stops at 11 minutes left in cycle. will not spin or drain


Google ""Maytag Neptune load unbalance""


Read thru the post. I feel you have a Clutch malfunction even though you may not be see DC ot UC unbalance errors to the Console.


I'm seeing that around the 5 to 6 yr mark it's time for a Tub Seal replacement and possible Outer Tub and Spinner Support bearings should be replaced on the FAV6800A and FAV9800A machines. It's not too bad for most DIY owners.

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.

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.

My wash spins SO loudly


Had the same problem with my Neptune and is was not the bearing (there's only one). I replaced my washer with a new tub and bearing which was factory pressed in the tub (couldn't just by the bearing) after all this I found that the spinner support (which has three arms holding the tub) on the back of the tub had one of the three bolts broke and was throwing the washer out of balance and creating a loud knocking sound when it would spin. Replaced the stainless bolt and everything was fine. The repair man told me what he thought was wrong with my machine so I did the repair myself and found out after the fact that I wouldn't have had to spend all the money on the new parts if I would have just investigated the problem further.
