Barrel ? The inner spin basket or the outer tub ? Both require a lot of work. But everything has be removed, disconnected and or replaced. Front panel, door, rear panel, pulley, belt, flip up the top, all hoses and harnesses, top and bottom, front tub cover, bellows, un lip from the outer tub, cement block for weight, shocks on bottom and springs on top !

Loud Bearing Noise During Spin Cycle- MAH4000AWW

I don't know these front loaders so well but, here's a couple of things to look for.
1) If belt driven, look for the spring loaded tensioner. Once tension is released, check the pully & see if it has excessive play.
2) Check the gasket on front panel & see if drum has rubbed thru it in order to make metal to metal contact.
3) There is alot of pressure on that rear bearing...make sure it's not egg shaped or scored on the inside.

If all else fails, shotgun it (in other words, replace those moving parts you suspect:)

Where can I get drum bearing for MAH5500bww?

Hi, Unfortunately you can' itself, or at least that is the short answer. If you have the means of matching that bearing up with a bearing making company then hypathetically you can get it. However, through appliance part sources you have to purchase the entire rear wall/outer tub assembly ( #22004465) and if the bearing is gone, likely the spinner support as well. ( # W10181639)I did quite a few year's ago on the first generation MAH3000's under Maytag warranty, it's quite a big job. If you'd like to check it out go to searspartsdirect, ap wagner, or any number of on-line parts supplier's. You should then witness what I mean, as soon as you identify the bearing as a individual part and click on that number you'll automatocally be directed to the complete outer tub rear wall component's. Sadly it is the way thing's are done these day's. I sound old, but I remember being able to rebuild anything ad long as it was built in north america. Such is modern life with a "global economy" I guess. Hope that answer's your question or help's in some way. If so please remember to leave a rating of the answer I provided here at fixya. Thanks for visiting fixya and good luck with whatever you decide.

MAH4000AWW Bearing Noise When Spinning

12002022 is a seal kit only. The outer tub replacement is the correct fix, The part number for your unit is 22002907 and crosses over to 22004465. BTW. the replacement tub includes the seal kit and for the price I usually change the spinner assy at the same time..There are two part numbers for that.. It depends on your washer series which is determined by the first 2 numbers of your serial number... Hope this helps... Bill

Maytag neptune MAH4000AWW Very loud noise when spinning

I found this on line ... 6/15/09 . Does your Maytag Neptune front loader sound like a runaway freight train when it is in high speed spin cycle? 2. Is your Neptune getting so loud that you cannot be in the same room while it is spinning your clothes? It sounds like your bearings may need some attention if you answered YES to the questions See ... Frank [email protected]

Neptune washer

Why?Do you understand that the bearings are locked into the outer tub and you have to replace that,the outer tub.Very expensive repair that will most likely be almost half the price you had paid for the machine new.My advise is DONT FIX this if you have a bearing problem ,because I honestly believe in letting the customer know the truth.Sorry, but a 15 year old re- conditioned Maytag will out last any Neptune ever made.
