SOURCE: Maytag Neptune washer, model MAH5500BWW, not spinning up to speed

Open the lid. take one hand and push the tub back toward a back corner. Take your other hand and fill in the gap on the opposite corner. There should be a black round rubber strap going from the outside top of the tub to the cabinet. Once you find it check all four corners. I feel sure that you will find more than one broken. These help to keep the load balanced. It is very important that you change these as soon as possible due to after these break these machines are bad about the tub banging into the sides and cracking the outer tub. To replace the tub will run ( in my area) around $240 - $300. These straps are not hard to replace and don't cost very much. I would rate replacing them a 2 on a hardness scale from 1 to 10. 10 being the hardest.
Please rate this solution if helpful.

I have a maytag model A312 washer that has worked fine for almost 30 years. Wash cycle works with water pouring in but the barrel will not spin. I cannot even force it to spin around. Any suggestions...


Hello, Awesome Maytag washing machine. Sound like that wonderful Maytag transmission has finally gone to transmission retirement center. I think they might have rebuilt transmission for your Maytag washing machine. Check with your local Appliance Repair Shop---Maytag---. Ask them if they have a transmission but I am thinking here, it could be belt driven. If it is belt driven, empty the washing machine and be careful when turn over your washing machine. There is two concrete block that hangs on a self leveler to keep you washing balanced during the spin cycle.


Also, check for oil under your washing machine and if there oil then your washing machine has a transmission and it is leaking. Well, Tracy you can try the few thing that I mentioned here. But remember I am only suggesting you try these thing and if you don't fell like you can't handle it. Then get your neighbors and friends to help you, please. GB...stewbison

Maytag MAH4000AWW no longer does the high speed spin cycle. Other than that motor runs fine. Seems like a controller issue but don't have a repair manual to know for sure.

It could be the motor control board not telling the motor to switch to its highest speed, but it could also be control board not telling the motor control board to activate, but it could also be in the timing circuit. What other indications are you getting? Take a look at the wiring diagrams for this machine on the referenced site.

Maytag Washer LA712 spin cycle question


Remove the front panel (2 screws bottom front) and then put the machine into the spin cycle. Be VERY carefful as the transmission also spins and can really injure you if you get to close. Observe the speed in the spin cycle. Then grab the plastic motor cover and gently pull the motor toward the outside corner. If the spin speed increases then you have a problem with either the 2 springs or 4 rollers inside the floating motor mount. See this link http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspxmodel_id=28967 The Matag part number that would be the ideal fix is 2-5000. To change the rollers you must remove the pulley and motor mount.

The springs are Item 18. You may have to explain to any parts center what rollers you want.

Wet clothes after final spin cycle


There are two speed (or three) on most washer motors and what happens is that a motor speed will stop functioning--it will wash the clothes, but the high speed will not function. This also could be the controller, but more likely it is centered at the motor. It the motor is functioning, it coulfd be in the transmission of the machine--which may be the problenm since you heard a loud noise. I am not familiar with your machine, there could be an electronic switch for the transmission to go into high speed as well that has gone bad. I wish I had more direct knowledge of your machine.

Knocking sound in the spin cycle off balance.


The motor switch that is mounted on the motor may need replacing. The knocking could mean that the "run" winding is cutting off momentarily, and running on the "start" winding of the motor. I dont know about a 22 year old model, but in most "near modern" machines, the switch has a plastic actuator that is pushed when the motor obtains near-run speed, that plastic may be worn or the actuator part on the motor may be at fault. If you replace the motor, you usually get this switch as part of the deal.
