Question about Maytag Legacy Series Top Load Washer

1 Answer

I have a Maytag wash machine where the main seal just went out again for the second time in (3) years. This is getting too expensive to keep fixing. Should I get a new one?

If you seal keeps failing maybe the shaft is pitted and worn causing it to wear prematurely as far as buying a new machine you will have to make that decision if you do fix again check shaft you may be able to restore it with some emery cloth hope this has helped

Make certain that these items are not covered within your warranty before venturing into actual repair or a new purchase. If out of warranty, this can be an expensive endeavor (e.g.: typically $300 or more total)

Hello,
It would seem to me that the heating element needs replacing from the information you have supplied especially as it performs most of the other functions like filling and spin and drain.
Good luck

MAYTAG NEPTUNE FRONT LOAD WASHER MAH5500BWW


Central bearing and seal are damaged. Very expensive repair and very expensive parts. Maytag does not sell bearings separately, they're only available with the outer tub, which is $400-$500; Repair itself is another 2-3 hours of hard work. Do the math...

Maytag fav6800aww wont spin


I have a 3 year old neptune top load and have experienced the same problems you all have had here. Problem: Washer was leaking 1/2 gallon of water every load and sounded like a freight train on spin cycle. I usually do my own repairs but didn't have time so I called A&E by the recommendation of Maytag. Diagnosis! The tech said the tob o-ring seal was bad as well as the transmission. I had no reason to dought this professional right. I did after he told me the price... $450 to fix it!!!! I reluctantly gave him his $65 service call fee and said goodbye..
I called maytag and they said the transmission should have been covered by warranty (10 years). The tech was either an idiot or just plain trying to rip me off. I called Maytag back and they sent me the supposed bad tranmission and seals. I replaced them in 1/2 an hour. Guess what.... This did not fix the leaking or the loud spin cycle noise. What is the problem with this neptune model? The problem for every owner including myself has at minimum been the main seal inside the outer tub. This leaking for months took out the bearings causing the noisy spin cycle. I replaced both 6207-2rs bearings compliments of ebay for $6ea. After reassembly it was like new for the first load. On the second load it would stop on the spin cycle.... It would cycle between the agitators and trying to spin but never engaging into spin. After 5-6 minutes it gave me the code that stated an unbalanced load. What the problem was is the leaking had made its way into the clutch as well. I pulled the clutch/pulley back of and cleaned and lubed it. Problem solved! She now goes into spin and has no problems whatsoever. I'll never call A&E again...Mechanically this washer is a piece of cake to work on. Electronically it could be a bear... The bearing replacement took approx. 2 hours total from start to finish. Next time I'm buying Kenmore and the extended warranty. I'm tired of screwing with this junk... Good luck guys.... Jos Roach... CA.

Transmission Dead, Rusty Water, Broken Seal and Loud Noises


This has the notorious triple lip seal. This will happen again and again. Do yourself a favor and get a different machine. Labor will be from 1 hour for just the seal, to 2 hours if transmission too.
