    making noise at spin cycle, like a metalic squawling sound. belts were burned a little in places so went ahead and replaced them them. noise seems to be around motor area or possibly in the middle below transmission. very loud and do not want to keep on to long

    after letting it run, it's coming from the center pulley that drives the transmission. Sounds like I need to get a new washer !

It was manufactured in May 1993. However, depending on the problem, you may seriously consider a repair. The reason I say this is because this is a GOOD Maytag, before they started going downhill, and will probably last another 10 or more years. If you consider fixing it, post the actual problem it's having and I'll let you know what I think.

    It may be the drain pump making noise, or the transmission. It's hard for me to tell without hearing it myself. If the gears break off inside the transmission, it will sound like grinding. If it is the transmission, you will not want to have it repaired.

How do i fing out if my washer is still under Warr.? I have a Maytag centennial washer


The standard warranty is 1 year from date of purchase for all parts and labor. I believe the Centennial Series has a 10 year warranty on the wash tub (basket) and motor, parts only. So if your washer is over 1 year old, the pump would not be covered. If I may ask, why do you think the pump is defective? Can you provide the model number of your washer?

Yes, the Neptune is a great washer, arguably. :-> You just may have a clogged pump. Pull the back panel and the rest is evident. Pull baffles, remove gookus, pull pump, clean, etc. ...just like a plumber. Be sure to pull the rubber baffe directly from the bottom of the outer tub. You may need a wet/dry vac to assist you. It's a bear of a job but I do it all the time.

Washer doesn't stay running. filled with water, then shut down then filled some more and now stuck doing nothing. If push start button if runs for about 5 seconds then shuts off. 10 years old.


For being 10 years old...I'd say R.I.P Neptune. A 10-year-old dryer is going to cost you more in repairs than the cost of a new machine! And even if it is cheap enough to fix, the parts may be no longer available. I used to work at the Harrisburg PA Sears Parts/Service Center...trust me...I know.

I think my Maytag MAV6200AWW washer has a bad tub seal & bearing


if you have had this unit for over 5 years Then it is TOTALLY NOT worth the repair - if it is only a year or 2 old then call MAYTAG and they may offer a parts/labor concession. average life is 5-10 years now as sucky as that is!!

Maytag LAT8240 leaking water


Irene, I would get a quote on replacing the tub seal. There is a kit that costs about $75.00 and that is probably the problem. These are good machines and I just replaced the same part in our maytag recently.

The locking collar on the hub is left hand thread. This may help with the replacement.
