Customer Question

Our Maytag Neptune MAH7550 (AGW) washer is making an increasingly loud noise on the spin cycle each time we use it.

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I have been in the home improvement and repair field for 20 years. I will be very glad to help you today. Is the machine balanced? What kind of noise is it making?

We think that the machine is about 10 years old: we inherited it seven years ago. We assume it is balanced.

The washer has not been serviced during the time we have owned it. The noise during the spin cycle is a metallic whirring sound. The spin speed is normally set to 800. However, someone has suggested resetting it to 600, which we did,and it is quite a bit quieter.




Has the problem been resolved? Does the machine itself shake when in use?
