    Default [FIXED] Loud spin cycle brown liquid leak

    Model Number: MAH5500BWW
    Brand: Maytag

    I have a model MAH5500BWW washer that gets about 25 loads per week and was purchased in 2002. The washer has been making loud jet engine type noise and vibration during spin for the last few months. When I opened it up These photos show what I found.

    Is this just a bearing replacement or is the damage more sever?

    Yes, it sounds like the rear bearing is bad.

    Now the bearings only come with the outer tub assembly:

    But you can get them locally at a bearings shop in your area, this thread explains all about it: Neptune bearing/seal issues....
