Question about Maytag Neptune Washer
My maytag neptune front loading washing machine starts and then goes off after a few minutes. it's been getting louder the last few weeks, and now it just keeps going off after we start it. the last time it worked for a while it left water in the drum before it shut off, so it got that far in the washing process i guess... any ideas?
I'm not sure which model that you have, but I will venture to guess that it is a Maytag MAH5500BWW. If that is the model you have, I would say that your problem is with the motor/motor control panel, this has been re-engineered with a replacement. You can check all functions of your machine by placing it in service mode.To do this, turn machine on then press the delicates and heavy soil key for 3 seconds, then press spin to do a quick spin test. If it doesn't spin, then you may have that faulty motor design. In your machine behind the touchpanel on top there should be a tech sheet for your machine which tells you how to do this and how to check every operation of the machine. Replacing motor and control board is a very easy fix and if you contact Maytag (now whirlpool) they will give you a very nice price on all replacement parts for your machine. Hope its not the bearing!

You need to check the drain pump and look to see if there is anything that might be caught in the pump.
if there is still water in the pump you can use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose and remove the water.
then remove the hoses from the pump if you do not find anything in the pump look in the hose that comes from the bottom of the tub to the drain hose and look for something there

When you spin the drum by hand does it sound grindy?
can you lift the basket up and down
is there play?
sounds like to me you have a bad bearing
