Question about Maytag Neptune MAH5500B Front Load Washer
Loud noise during washing/rinsing/spinning cycles.
I just replaced the bearings on my Front loader Maytag MAH5500B, as it sounded like a freight train during the spin cycle. The bearing replacement fixed the train problem.
NEW PROBLEM NOW: It's been about a month now since the bearing job and now something is clicking/binding when you spin the back belt wheel. I have taken the belt off and carefully move the wheel and I still get this clicking noise. It sounds as if someone is hitting the plastic drum that the tub is surrounded by. I really doubt it's the bearings this soon, as the sound is not the same! No leaks or metal shavings to speak of or rubbing of the belt wheel.
Seems like it's more noticeable during the wash/rinse cycles then the spin.
Can anyone help.???

Remove the front panel and check the drain tube in the upper left rear section of the plastic tub liner. If this tube works loose from the insert, it will make a loud banging sound and your first thought will be a bad bearing or seal. Five second job to reinsert tube, $80 saved on repair call.

Most likely the problem with your washer is a bad bearing on the drain pump. The pump has to be replaced.
- The part number for the drain pump is AP3447809

The load is out of balance. Open the lid and redistribute the contents. When it's empty, grab the basket and give it a slight push sideways. It should move a little but, not free swing. If it doesn't have much resistance, the "snubber" has dried out and should be replaced. It is simply a piece of rubber in a metal bracket, that rests on the tub. When the basket spins,the snubber keeps it from jumping around.
