Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
Suddenly my maytag neptune washer is SO loud when it is in the spin cycle. Nothing else seems to be a problem in that it is completing the cycles, cleaning the clothes,etc. It is just extremely loud during the spin cycles.
Had the same problem with my Neptune and is was not the bearing (there's only one). I replaced my washer with a new tub and bearing which was factory pressed in the tub (couldn't just by the bearing) after all this I found that the spinner support (which has three arms holding the tub) on the back of the tub had one of the three bolts broke and was throwing the washer out of balance and creating a loud knocking sound when it would spin. Replaced the stainless bolt and everything was fine. The repair man told me what he thought was wrong with my machine so I did the repair myself and found out after the fact that I wouldn't have had to spend all the money on the new parts if I would have just investigated the problem further.

I found out that is the front bearing that cause the loud in the spin cycle. Replacing will fix the problem, but I can,t still find the part!!
Maytag wants 460.00 and repairclinic 450.00

I agree that it's the bearing. Unfortunately the easiest way to replace it is to replace the entire outer tub. I've tried to replace just the bearing and it's much much easier to replace the entire thing. That's what Maytag recommends anyway. Unfortunately it costs about 6 times more in parts to do that.

Sounds like the rear bearing is worn out which is part of the outer tub take the back off the washer and see if the noise is comming from the center of the tub let me know if this works

Try some anti-squeek on the belt, after plug off the wall & removing the rear panel. Or you could even try some soap from a soap cake.
