Re: Drum is stuck
Maybe that a sock or other piece of clothing get between the clothes tub and the outer tub. Open washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then,try to remove the clothing through the port. keep a rag nearby to dry up spillage of water when removing the rubber host.
Good luck !!

The paper is clearly not feeding properly, that's why it's heat damaged when you open up the unit.
The 2 most likely causes are:
1. Paper path and/or printer mechanics are blocked by something foreign - this could be a stray piece of paper (simple fix) or a piece of the printer that has broken off (not so simple).
2. Something has broken/malfunctioned such that the mechanism that feeds the paper is either not feeding any more, or is blocked somehow.
Tough break if the cause is item 2; you'll need to have the printer serviced (if it's worthwhile based on age/condition), or replaced.
To determine if you're lucky and the cause is item 1, unplug the printer from power, remove the toner cartridge(s) and remove the drum (protect the drum from intense direct light). Visually inspect the inside of the printer to ensure every scrap of paper or clump of toner is cleaned out. Also inspect the drum/toner cartridge for damage and to ensure nothing is stuck on either - clean as necessary.
One final thought - if you're using paper that's too thick for the printer to handle, this can also happen. In that case, of course, clean up the printer (as advised above) and use normal paper. Refer to the printer documentation to see what weight of paper is compatible with it.
Sounds like bearing and spider have gone, spider is the support on the drum which goes through the tub. then the wheel fits onto it. Open the door and see if you can lift the drum, if the drum lifts with a clunk or with ease then this will confirm the problem
There are a lot of moving part that can cause noises or vibration when get worn out.
Make sure dryer is level, and on a secure floor, and that nothing is leaning against the dryer.
Check all exposed screws, and make sure they are tight. Loose cabinet screws may cause a squeak.
Check for foreign objects below the lint filter:-Remove lint filter, and look down opening. If you need to stick your hand down the opening to remove an object, be careful because the edges could be sharp. It would be advisable for you to wear a pair of work gloves.
Foreign objects in the drum front seal and worn or loose drum slides can cause a metal scraping noise as the drum rotates.
Check for foreign objects in the drum. (Coins, buttons and zippers will make a rattling sound as they roll around in the drum)
A frayed or damaged belt will make a thumping sound.
It is normal to hear the sound of the drum as it turns.
If your dryer is making unusual noises and the above suggestions do not resolve the situation, discontinue use of the dryer until it has been checked by a qualified servicer. Continued use may cause wear of other parts making the repair more costly.
Firstly, you can carefully run your hand around the inside of the drum. If you're really lucky the object may poke thru one of the holes enough for you to grab with a pair of pliers. Try turning the drum back and forth to catch the object in the holes. If this doesn't work you can take the sump hose off on the bottom of the outer tub. If all else fails you may have to remove the heater element and more than likely that's where the object is stuck. (Please ensure if you do not but a new element in use some petroleum jelly or washing liquid to get the old element back in, or you may solve one problem but create a leak). Also, when refitting element be sure that it is sat under it's internal bracket or the drum will scrape on it when it turns.
Hope this helps
ps I'm betting evens that it's a bra underwire!
I think you have a problem with the arm that is attached from the drum to the drive gear of the drum.It happen sometimes that that arm or the mechanism that retreat and locked to the drum when you open and close the door is faulty.The arm hep to unlock the drum when you open the door to remove the drum unit.Now if you insert the drum unit that machanism do not lock the drum in possition that cause the drum not to rotate and cause the PAPER JAMS.
You have to open the left panel of the fax and inspect the mechanism.
if its squeaking it means that in wants to be grease or lubed
all mechanical devices need some form of maintence to run properly lube the motor the drum the track wheels but not with wd40 use appliance lubericant or call your local maytag man to come out and do routine maintenance on your neptune
also to the guru if there was a foreign object stuck between drum and body it would be like throwing a monkey wrench into a clock towers gears it would slam to a hault so i dont believe in the object stuck theory
It sounds like it's actually stuck between the bottom of the agitator and the basket (assuming you've got an agitator). The top of the agitator is usually for bleach or maybe it's fabric softener. Pop off the top (like the lid off of a can) and that should expose a nut or bolt in the center of the agitator. Remove this bolt (make note of how tight it was just after you've broken it free) and lift to remove the agitator. Remove any foreign objects and feel free to clean up anything else down there. Replace the agitator and tighten the bolt approx as tight as it was when you removed it (be careful not to overtighten). Snap on the top of the agitator and you should be good to go.
