    On a Maytag Neptune front loader... usually the groaning noise is the motor control board failing. This board located near the floor on the right side provides 3 phase power to drive the motor and if one of the phases fail then the motor will groan and it will not develop the proper torque either so it may not spin the clothes very well. See www.12002039.com for information on diagnosing the motor control board.

Sounds like the main bearing on the back of the drum assembly has gone and needs replacing, the drum has moved out of alignment or the electric motor has burnt out. Best to have a Maytag repair tech or someone who is qualified to look at it.

Wash machine model mav 7600, started making tremendous noise, first in spin cycle only and then in wash cycle also. After running a few loads with the noise the machine just stoped running....


This sounds like collapsed/broken drum bearings. Check for movement between inner and outer drum. Also rotating the drum by hand will be hard (or immpossible), and noisy. It could be the motor and belt, but most times it is bearings.

I have a neptune washer that makes a buzzing type noise when I hit the start button? from motor area. The belt and pulley into the unit turns freely. I did get it to start and the barrel did rotate then...


The buzzing noise is probably an electrical relay that controls the motor. They have a spring assembly on an arm. When you energize it it creates a magnetic field and pull the arm down into contact and starts the current flow to the motor. If it's buzzing, the relay is probably bad and need replaced.

My MAH 5500B washer has a squeak when fully loaded at the start of rotation in both directions.


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

if still the problem then ,Motor is kicking on and off making that noise....so far for us this has been a motor issue 9.5 times out of 10.

Maytag washing machine


When the washer fills up, first thing that actuates is the diaphragm switch under the control header. This is directly connected into the timer. The diaphragm switch starts the timer motor listed on the diagram as TM. Check the timer motor. If its working you can see something rotating in a little window on the motor. The motor operates all the internal cam switches.
