To open the front panel there are 2 green clips between the top of the unit and the front panel. (you can use a flash light to find them easier). Push on the with a putty knife or small flat head
screw driver while lifting on the top. Once the top is open, you will find 2 5/16 screws that hold the front panel on at the top on the right and left hand sides. Once these are removed, you can tilt the front panel forward and remove it.
However, the most common source for this squeek is a bad brake. You would need a specialty tool to remove it. If you go down to your local appliance parts store, bring your model number (located on the back top of the console). Ask them for a brake, stator, spring for that model and a maytag spring compressor. To replace it, first pull the unit forward and lean the top backwards to about a 45 degree angle (or until it will stay leaning against the wall behind it). Now pull your belt off from the bottom. It will come off the pulleys fairly easily. Next remove the cap on the bottom of the large pulley. Underneath you will see a clip on the very bottom. Work it off with a small flat head screw driver. Now place another screw driver on the bottom of the haft in the middle and let the parts fall down on top of it so they will stay in the proper order. Make sure to use your small flat head to make sure all of the washers have come off. Now, install your brake tool. (the directions come with it) but basically, you remove the pin, loosen the nut, slide the tool over the shaft, re-install the clip and tighten the nut back down until the tub turns freely. Next remove the 6 black 5/16" screws that are on the brake. Once you remove those, loosen the nut once more on your brake tool. Once it is loose enough, remove the clip on your brake tool. Reach up and tilt your tub slightly towards the front. This will let your stator, brake and spring all come out. Remove the cap from the top of the spring you just took out. Add it to the new brake spring and stator and reverse the process. The squeek goes away. Still having troubles? Drop me a note back

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 Neptune makes loud drums like sound 5 min before it stops.


its probably because of the way the clothes are in it. you have to make sure the clothes arent leaning to one side and that they are evenly set up. otherwise when it goes into the spin cycle itll lean and hit the side of the washers inside and make it shake and do what you said it was doing.

Rattling noise during spin cycle


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

I had this same problem. I think its the upper spray arm vibrating during wash cycle. To verify; prevent the upper arm from rotating by putting a long spatula through the top rack or zip tie the arm so it don't rotate. If the noise goes away you found your problem.
