Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have Maytag LAT2500AAE. I took off the front cover and I see water leaking from the tub bearing during the rinse cycle. I think I need the Tub Bearing Repair Kit PS60151. Is this a difficult job? Thanks Greg

    Exact same issue. Same model number, same leak. It was intermittant at first but now is happening on every load. I was looking at trying part number PS60151 and PS65335 just to cover any surprises once I get into it, but time may be a factor in my deciding whether or not to attempt the repair. I'm now going to look for recall info.

Tub bearing replacement on ANY Maytag can be difficult. Even for experienced technicians, it can take 1 to 2 hours as long as there are no surprises (corrosion, stubborn bolt etc). Also, all Maytag washers require specialized tools for removing certain components of the machine.

Why does my washer (maytag mah5500bww front loader) make noise during the wash/rinse cycles but not during the spin.?


The noise could be from a loose wire harness, plastic purse-lock wire harness retainer on the upper hose hitting the top cover ir a plastic injector mold standoff on the outer tub bearing housing, also a flat spot in the belt could cause a tapping noise. Something between the outer tub and wash basket. I have had to remove items lodged in the drain tube between the pump and tub, like bra under wires. Sometimes you can squeeze the tube and feel objects the ate lodged. I always take the tube off the tub side and run my finger all the way down to the pump impeller to make sure. I also check the I can spin the impeller and the nothing is in the pump. Hard to say with out being there. Where do you think the noise is coming from top , bottom , left , or right side?

Check to see if your water pump is spinning. It could be seized up and the burning smell could be the belt spinning on the seized pulley. Good luck Friend.

Do you mean the Boot Seal assembly and Tub bearing were replaced?????
Who did the replacement? Does your machine have a plastic tub cover with some 8 or so tabs that lock it onto the tub?? The gasket may be warped or the tabs are not locked in the right place.
If it has a metal tub cover then probably the rubber gasket is twisted and not seating properly between the tub and the cover.

Leaks water underneath - i think it only does it during the cycles that spin extremly fast to wring the water out


FAV6800A or FAV9800A correct?

If so you need to remove the front cover and try to determine if the water is coming down the Spinner Support shaft or if there is a leak in the drain line system.

I suspect with limitted info this could be a tub seal leak. with water collectig on the Clutch Pulley. Possible Tub Seal issue a big job but can be done by a basic DIY'er. I have helped others on this site replace the tub seal and Outer Tub Bearings.

If you want to DIY the fix we need to troubleshoot further and this is not the forum for that.

If you want to DIY the repair Google this phrase ""Sticky: Neptune TL Washer FAV6800AWW""" post your problem as a new issue not in the sticky and I will try to help.

Loud noise during spin cycle (Bravos washer) was told the bearing is pressed into the tub. Looking at parts list they show the "basket" and the "tub outer". Is the bearing in the "tub outer"?


Similar issue, lot of racket on final spin and was told only option was a $280 whole tub assembly. Dissasembled tub and removed bearings from shaft. Took to local bearing warehouse and got replacements for <$25. The small one was a Nachi Quest 6005-2NSE9 and the large one was 6006-2NSE9. It took me @ 4-6 hrs in total and had to work to get top bearing onto shaft but much more attractive option than replacement or whole tub. Extremely irritated with Maytag and will NOT give them another dime. A appliance less than 1.5 yr old should not have these issues - cheaply made. Is a shame as Maytag used to mean something, it meant quality but not anymore.

I have a Maytag LAT2500AAE top load washer. The


check the balance ring on the tub just below the tub cover and tub cover gasket which can be done from the top of the machine by removing the top cover,while doing this pull and push tub from side to side and see if it moves easier in certain directions, if it does you may have a tub spring broken on the tub leading to an un balance condition cause the springs stabilize the tub like a shock absorber on an auto, if this is it then you need to access the lower unit area by removing the front cover of the unit there are screws at the toe kick panel to remove this panel

Loud noise during washing/rinsing cycles


I just replaced the bearings on my Front loader Maytag MAH5500B, as it sounded like a freight train during the spin cycle. The bearing replacement fixed the train problem.

NEW PROBLEM NOW: It's been about a month now since the bearing job and now something is clicking/binding when you spin the back belt wheel. I have taken the belt off and carefully move the wheel and I still get this clicking noise. It sounds as if someone is hitting the plastic drum that the tub is surrounded by. I really doubt it's the bearings this soon, as the sound is not the same! No leaks or metal shavings to speak of or rubbing of the belt wheel.

Seems like it's more noticeable during the wash/rinse cycles then the spin.

Can anyone help.???

Maytag stack unit Model LSE7806ACE leaks


It is most likely the tub seal. Take the two phillips head screws out of the front cover located low on the cover lift forward and remove. Set the machine two low level and fill with water only no soap or clothes when unit starts agitating look at the bottom center of the clothes tub if water is leaking here then you will need to replace the tub seal and tub bearing assembly.

Maytag washer bangs during spin cycle


chances are you had a blockage in the pump and it tried to spin with the water still in the drum. check the bottom hose and filter for blockages so it does not occur again.
