Maytag Neptune Front Load Washer Model MAH4000AWW low last spin

I have a Maytag Neptune Front Load Washer Model #MAH4000AWW. It seems to work fine, except it has started to sound like a jet engine during the last spin cycle. The clothes spin almost dry. Second problem is when it sits idle overnight, the tub will almost fill with water.

Two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news

Have a Magtag Front Load Model mah5500bww. When we start the
cycle on regular cycle / hot/cold the cold valve opens fro approximately 11
seconds then all of a sudden it sounds like the hot water valve opens but I
hear a bang and nothing. We don't get ant hot water. If I set the washer back
to cold/cold the water comes back on. I just replaced the water valves. What
could be the problem?

Strange growling sounds on rinse and spin cycle


I would check the motor control board located near the floor on the right side for burnt components. The motor is a 3 phase unit and if one of the phases are working the motor will growl and won't be able to supply the proper torque.

See www.neptunehelp.com for disassembly photos and for more info on the faulty door latch wax motor.

Maytag Model # MAH4000AWW Neptune Front Load Washer Problem: Door will not lock. All cycles during wash work except the spin cycle.


Clean out your filter after ref. to user's manual. Try some WD40 on the door mechanism (on machine), lock & unlock door 5 or 6 times while machine is off.

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.
