Maytag Neptune front load washer ??? Is there a filter ???

I have a Maytag front loader MAH6700AWW. I just pulled the pump lastnight because it had a quarter stuck in it and was making a terrible grinding noise. I was shocked to discover that there is absolutely no filter trap on this machine. If anything gets past the rubber boot, and coins can and do... you need to wish for luck in that you do not wipe out your pump. I was shocked that this machine had not filter trap between the pump impeller and the tub drain. All newer machines have these. The LG and most have a trap door on the front you open to access the trap. Some of the earlier front loaders required that the bottom front panel be removed. No such animal on this Maytag. Probably yours as well.

Door is locked but won't agitate/spin and the latch assembly clicks a few times then give error code FL -

That is Failed Lock. If the door is not completely shut and the lock can not engage after several attempt you will get this code.

Neptune washer bearing problem Tony tool seems to over simplify

I rented the tool and it worked fine. The replacement steel washer had an extra rubber insert that took me a few assemble/test/disassemble cycles to find. That cost me time and the $90 late surcharge on the rental. All told though, it went as described online and in the dvd that came with the rental. Just see that the replacement parts fully match what you are replacing.

My question is whether someone else has done this and had the new bearings last more than a couple months. Two and a half months in, the washer is winding up as when the first bearings went bad. This is not a good sign, and I question the quality of the bearings.

Any feedback?

I would check the balance of machine by using a leveler and checking the bottom leg adjustment on all 4 legs then check the suspension springs, counter weights, dampning straps etc. washer-moves-violently-gives-lr-code-dn3wi03dqy3vjnwbm4uf5us1-3-0.jpg washer-moves-violently-gives-lr-code-dn3wi03dqy3vjnwbm4uf5us1-3-2.jpg washer-moves-violently-gives-lr-code-dn3wi03dqy3vjnwbm4uf5us1-3-5.jpg washer-moves-violently-gives-lr-code-dn3wi03dqy3vjnwbm4uf5us1-3-9.jpg washer-moves-violently-gives-lr-code-dn3wi03dqy3vjnwbm4uf5us1-3-14.jpg washer-moves-violently-gives-lr-code-dn3wi03dqy3vjnwbm4uf5us1-3-20.jpg washer-moves-violently-gives-lr-code-dn3wi03dqy3vjnwbm4uf5us1-3-27.jpg

Makes loud noise in spin cycle

The problem is that the seals are leaking and allowing water to attack the tub bearings. You need new tub seals and bearings.....not as difficult as it may seem. see u tube video on replacing maytag seals and bearings Cheers Stan
