Question about Maytag Washing Machines

The bearings in the Maytag Neptune MAH4000AWW washer are wearing badly. Sounds like a jet in my house when it spins. Can the bearings be replaced without replacing the outer tub?

If you think that there is no shake or play in the bearings a good wash with kerosene or diesel will take away all the dirt that causes the noise. The use light grease/heavy oil (90) to fill into the bearings.
Tip: repeat the washing with the diesel, use a good small brush and hold a tray under to pour the diesel and collect on to the tray till the noise subsides.
However if the bearings are still noisy then I think you need not replace the drum .
If Helpful credit me for the tip.

I have a Maytag Neptune front load washer that the tub is rubbing and is loud.


Could be the bearings . But it could also be the springs that center and hold tub in place. They weaken over time and it is not uncommon for a tub to be scraping because one of the springs is shot. When you replace one, you replace all at same time and eat your wheaties because they are hard to replace.

On my maytag neptune model # mah4000aww the spin cycle is extremely loud and I recently noticed that midway thru the cylce there must be a leak as a small amount of water is on the floor under the front...


Hello, it sounds like your Neptune's bearings and seal need replaced... See NeptuneBearing for more info on replacing your bearings and renting the special tool kit to save you time.

I see that you have a MAH4000 Neptune. Did you know that your machine shipped with a faulty door latch wax motor that will eventually damage the control board? See NeptuneHelpSong for a video that explains what happens when it fails. You can proactively upgrade your wax motor before it fails and prevent the failure to the control board.

I hope this helps...

Loud noise on spin cycle only clothes dry good


Sounds like your bearings and seal need replaced... See Neptune Bearing for information on the Maytag Neptune bearing and 12002022 seal kit. You can also rent a special tool kit that includes the bearings, 12002022 seal kit, bearing spacer, step by step DVD, etc.

I would not run neptune with bad bearings too prevent more damage to the Neptune spinner support, Motor drive system...

I hope this helps you...

I have a maytag neptune washer mah9700aww which sounds like a jet during the spin cycle can someone please tell me what this is?


The main bearing in the tub has gone out, usually happens form the water seal going out first and the bearing getting rusted. The bearing comes as an assembly with the rear half of the tub. Both the rear half of the tub, and the drum will need to be replaced.

I have a maytag neptune washer model# mah300aww.


Your tub seal leaked water into the tub bearings causing them to fail. Maytag only offers the bearings as part of the outer tub assembly and the repair can be pricey. A little research may turn up a service company in your area that has the tool to replace only the tub bearing. The repair becomes more affordable that way.

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

Maytag neptune MAH4000AWW Very loud noise when spinning


I found this on line ... 6/15/09 . Does your Maytag Neptune front loader sound like a runaway freight train when it is in high speed spin cycle? 2. Is your Neptune getting so loud that you cannot be in the same room while it is spinning your clothes? It sounds like your bearings may need some attention if you answered YES to the questions See www.neptunebearing.com ... Frank frankbusch@comcast.net
