I think my Maytag MAV6200AWW washer has a bad tub seal and bearing. Also the trasmission knocks. Is this now a pile of junk that will cost more to repair than buying a new one?

If you have had this unit for over 5 years Then it is TOTALLY NOT worth the repair - if it is only a year or 2 old then call MAYTAG and they may offer a parts/labor concession. average life is 5-10 years now as sucky as that is!!

Maytag washer model MAV6200AWW


pop off the front panel and look at the inside of it,if you see black dots on the bottom half and on the other walls like half way up from the bottom you have bad tub seals,the seal is made of metal and rubber,when it leaks and in spin it will shot out water and it will be black from the rubber,also you can fill it as high as it will go,then turn the timer to spin and watch where the tranny.and tub meet,if it sounds like marbles spinning and grinding and water leaks out it's the seals.if so time for new washer

Problems with Maytag washer model MVWB300WQ


The bearing is bad on the outer tub but the bearing only comes with the outer tub assembly. This is a complete kit with the outer tub, seals and bearings. Here is the tub kit if you should decide to order it.

Roars when it spin's..but it spins freely? i think its a roller,but how do i get to them ?


If your Neptune front loader washer is roaring in spin cycle you have a bad drum bearing. This repair requires a bearing and seal overhaul. The bearing comes as an assembly with the outer tub. The seal kit usually comes with tub assy. The basket shaft will need to be changed also. This is a time consuming and expensive repair, best done by expert. If washer is still spin drying clothes ok, you might be able to get by for awhile. Repair is usually not cost effective unless you are under a warranty.

Maytag washer MAV551EEWW top load with loose tub


If the tub seal lets go water will weep into the tub bearing. This will rust the basket shaft and normally wreck the tub bearing. Once the bearings starts to get worn enough it usually gets very noisy. The tub bearing is pressed onto the outer back half of the tub shell assembly. Normally need to replace the inner basket/shaft assembly  and the outer shell with the tub bearing. 
Sometimes the inner basket support will crack, this can give an clicking or banging noise as well.
 
Pictures of this job...
A sure indication was the brown junk/gookus leaking out if the rear bearing area and the belt has spewed it around in the drum that the rear bearing and seal was bad...

The whole outer shell and basket come out to do this repair....what bad bearing and rusted shaft looked like...
Picture1 - Picture2 - Picture3
I had to remove the back panel. Undo the pump hose & water level hose, remove the 2 shocks, remove the motor, undo the front boot from the outer panel and remove the 2 springs to lift the whole assembly out from the back to work on it.

Maytag mav6200aww removing inner tub


I broke a hammer removing the basket on a 6000 series today. These are known to be a real ***** to remove. Once those screws are out there is a seal nut to remove and the basket hub assembly is what it sits on. Look at 5 and 7 below.

Maytag MAV7200 Washer......needs seal and bearing kit


I HAD TO REPLACE THE SPIN BEARING ON MY MAYTAG ATLANTIS WASHER MAV9750,
it was making a loud noise during sin cycle, like a bad bearing would
make, jet engine kind of noise, i did replace the bearing and made a web
site with pictures on how to do it, since it almost takes all the parts
out, it will show you how to get to most of the parts in the machine, and
i also included links for downloading the repair manual, and parts at
appliance parts pros web site
