Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer

My wash spins SO loudly

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.

    We have a 7-year old Maytag Neptune with the same problem - incredibly noisy during the spin cycle. We had a Maytag repairman take a look at it and he said that it was the bearings. And that the problem with the bearings was the result of using too much detergent or the wrong kind of detergent. These machines apparently need "HE" (high efficiency - low sudsing detergent.The repairman explained
    that excess soap suds is the most likely cause of bearing failure and
    extra suds can get forced through the back into the bearing housing and
    rust them. Repairable, but expensive - around $500 Cdn.

    We have only used HE soap in our washer, we have the same problem, with no help from Maytag on the cost of the repair. The repair man said that it could be from dirt / sand not being fully removed from items washed. I am very frustrated with this situation.

    I have a Maytag Neptune MAH3000AWW front loader. It is very loud during the spin cycle. Can this be fixed by someone with little to no experience in repair work

  • linnyhawk Apr 17, 2009

    I have the same problem but with a GE washer. Model number WHRE5260E1WW. It sounds like it is going to launch into outer space when it is spinning. It sounds like it is spinning too fast as well. I imagine that could be because of the loudness and the fact that now we can hear it spinning unlike before?

    My husband thinks we need to replace the transmission. Will this fix the problem?

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 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.

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.

Very loud spin cycle

It sounds like the bearings have gone out in the tub. The major cause of this is using powder soap. There is nothing you can do but replace the rear outer tub. This is a costly fix but maybe worth it for a stack unit.

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.

Loud noise

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

Hope it may help you;

Maytag Neptune Series MAH5500BW loud noise during spin cycle.

very loud in spin cycle can mean a bad rear bearing, not something a homeowner would want to try to replace, parts would exceed 6-7 hundered dollars. you may have some extended part warr through the manufacture. still probly gonna be a 5 hundred when the labor is added in

Excessive wobble

If there's a loud thumping noise during the spin cycle, the load of clothes has probably gotten unbalanced. Open the lid, redistribute the clothes in the washer, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
