There could be a couple of reasons for this. When this occurs, look to see if the load is evenly distributed around the circumference of the tub. If not, redistribute and continue with spin cycle. The machine may not be level. Check to ensure that the machine's leveling legs are making contact with the floor and that there is no movement when you attempt to rock the machine. If the unit is sitting on a soft floor, this could happen from time to time.

I have a HotPoint washing machine, and it is leaking water bad. It leaks whenever the spin cycle starts, and the washing machine shakes pretty bad in that cycle. It's my ex girlfriends washing


The leaking could be coming from the exit port on the washing machine. Check the hoses leading from the washer to the drainage port in the wall. As for the shaking, check that the level adjustments at the bottom of the machine are level.

I suggest changing the belt for a new one, in fact if this model has 2 belts, replace them both.
I ran 2 laundromats... this occured frequently due to over loading the machine and then the belt would get damaged just enough to foul up the proper agitation and the spin/drain cycle.
Just change the belts and i'll bet that will get you back into service!

Let me know.

Shakes on spin cycle


yes bad struts can cause this problem also if you have it on carpet you would be better off cutting a piece of plywood for it to sit on as it will shake when sitting on carpet most of the time

Maytag Neptune Series MAH5500BW loud noise during spin cycle.


very loud in spin cycle can mean a bad rear bearing, not something a homeowner would want to try to replace, parts would exceed 6-7 hundered dollars. you may have some extended part warr through the manufacture. still probly gonna be a 5 hundred when the labor is added in
