Maytag Centennial washer makes loud bang and the end of cycle.


I don't think it would be the bearing, as no sounds abnormal occur during it's wash cycle. I think it's at the end of the spin dry cycle, that a "brake" is applied which stops the drum from spin drying, but is being applied overly hard, which causes the drum to "BANG", stop abruptly by the brake. Only a washer repairman could deal with that problem, but, it's NOT dangerous to the washer, IF that's what the problem is. Contact a washer repairman in your area, and they'll probably be able to tell you if it's THAT or something more serious, which I doubt. The reason why the washer moves a bit when at the end of the cycle is probably because the brake which causes the spin dry cycle to come to it's end, does so very fast, which displaces the centrifugal energy abruptly towards lateral motion. Not really dangerous either.

We just moved and the house came with a Maytag Neptune TL which won't spin if there are clothes in the cylinder. It will spin empty. Please help! Thanks.


Washer bangs around in spin cycle and throws a DC or UC unballance code with cloths in the wash basket is that correct?

If so it's a Clutch issue.

This washing machine has self-leveling rear legs. Tilt the machine up on the front legs and you'll hear the back legs drop down to re-level itself. Center the basket and restart.

MAH5500B washer won' spin. LR appears on display.


maytag neptune washers do have a motor problem and they have a kit to replace the motor and motor controller.
when the motor fails, it wont wash or spin. most units have a 5 year parts warranty and should be replaced with a free part, but you will have to pay an authorized servicer to do this.
if it is over 5 years then i would call maytag and see if they will help you with an authorization for repair.
most of the time they will provide the part for free. just call the 800 # and ask for help. they wont send you the part but might give you some help with the parts.

Maytag won't spin


I think the problem may be it is clogged up with lint and stuff or possibly a bad transmission.

To see if it is clogged you need to open the top by using a butter knife to release the 2 latches, remove the agitator and drum. If you see lots of lint or soap scum inside the plastic liner you need to remove that and then re assemble.

If the agitator will turn during the wash but not during the spin (after you clean it out) it likely is a bad transmission. (Tilt the machine up and set a paint can or similar size object under the front and turn the belt either way to verify from under the washer ... but first unplug the washer so it will not start on you and take a finger off).

Good Luck.
