It takes a little time and a special tool you can rent but if your handy and do it yourself it is not very expensive.

This sounds like worn drum bearing unit, could be quite an expensive repair

Maytag Neptune - MAH5500BWW makes loud, loud noise during spin cycle. What parts are necessary to repair the unit? I assume there are bearings and seals needed. Thank you.

I have a maytag neptune washer and the spin cycle is really loud is that normal. Kinda like a jet engine but it is complete level we checked?


you have described the noise from a front load washer in the spin cycle to a "T", it definately does sound like a jet engine. if it ain't broke...don't fix it!!

Maytag Neptune Front Load Washer Model MAH4000AWW low last spin


two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news

Very loud spin cycle


The link below, courtesy of www.repairclinic.com, shows that the rear bearing comes with the outer tub only and is very pricey! I have been unable to find a service agency that offers just the bearing. Very aggravating. www.maytag.com would be a good place to define your issue.

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...
