Question about Maytag Neptune MAH6500A Front Load Washer

Open Question

Maytag FL leaks after bearing replacement

I replaced the bearings on my MAH6500aww and she ran fine for about 3 weeks. Then we started to notice water coming from underneath. I pulled the back off and watched as it ran thru a full cycle. The water is coming out from where the (spline) sticks out/ thru the back of the tub. It ranges from a slow to a fast trickle. Which makes me believe that it has leaked slowly for a little while. Might this be a seal not properly seated, even tho it did not leak for the first 5 loads, as I sat a watched the fills, spins, washings, and drains. I honestly DO NOT want to rip this thing apart, as I believe I could do it blind folded with my hands tied behind my back =) I have done it so many times...ugh. Thanks for any advice.

SOURCE: maytag washer is leaking

There are special tool designed to dissassemble this unit although it can be broken down without them if care is taken.

Having the model and serial number would help but be assured that the threading is standard (Rightie tighty, lefty loosy)

Maytag used different designs. Repair depends on the model/serial number. With this information I may be able to step you through the repair.

Knowing the age of your machine would be a plus in determining if repair is economically feasible.

Hi hindsr

I dont know for sure what it is but i would guess that the tub is going off balance during the spin just befor the rinse and the tub is not centered. so what happens is watter hits the top of the tub and runs down the back (inside) and thats where the water is comming from.

Mike, Sorry to hear that, is there any water around the clutch pulley?  With the front panel removed and you put the washer in a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket.  View the Clutch pulley turning CCW and see if is turning true with no wobble? Mine spun off twice before I got it seated properly, and it was in wobble mode until I got it seated properly.   With the water leak issue maybe you can view with the front panel off and a partial fill the leak source. You can always do a quick tub pump out in service mode. As you know unplug the 120VAC to the machine before you poke around in there.  Do you still have the original clutch?  Did you remove the plastic cover and inspect the roller bearings, clutch spring and coupler? Good luck and let’s see what you find. Rich

Double posting, are you still having the issue, did reseating the clutch clear the issue?

Maytag electric washer model # lat 9406aae is leaking water from its base, had noticed odd sound during spin cycle as well


Odd sound...? Would this be a nasty grinding sound like a worn out bearing. Nasty sounds and water leaks are usually associated with the main drum bearing breaking up and consequentlly the water seal being breached and water leaking from the back of the drum.

Sorry to say that if this is the case, the cost of repair vs the cost of a new machine are going to have to be considered. If you can get to look under tha machine and see where the water is coming from, you will probably see it is originating from the centre of the drive wheel for the drum. If this is the case then the main bearing is shot. You MAY get a local repairer to come out and replace the bearing (But they will probably need to take the machine away to replace the machine pressed bearing). Or they may offer a refurbished drum and take yours away so they can refurb that later.

Whatever the method, if it is the main bearing, the cost is not going to put a smile on your face and you should seriously consider the alternative of investing in a new machine.

I have a MAH6500AWW. I replaced bearings in today and ran a normal cycle with it empty. It ran without a problem. This belongs to a friend so after the test cycle we loaded it into his blazer on its back...


it starts along the pressure switch and follows down along the tub to the middle or bottom of inner drum , should bot be hard to locate but may have to remove cabinet

Maytag Neptune TL clutch problems- Class Action Lawsuit??


I sounds like this is a common problem with the Maytag Neptune TL after about 3-5 years. Mine finally went out yesterday after several months of bearings getting louder all of the time. It looks like the bearings and the controller are gone. What happened to washing machines that last 15 - 20 years?

Water leak


Need to check the supply hose connections. Could be that's where leak is coming from. Make sure there is no clogging of the hose.
