Maytag Neptune washer start making a loud noise like a bearing go out

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It is about 3 years old and model MAH5500BWW Serial # 71769102ZM

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If it is an easy fix I can do it

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

OK Thank you

ok this unit was manufactures in June of 2001 so it is older then 3 years old .

And most likely it is a rear bearing .

These maytag Neptune where well known for that .

How mechanical are you? to repair this the entire unit will need to be disassembled .

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I am mechanical but may not have the time. Would it be cheaper to buy a new machine than to have a repairmen come out and fix it?

To have a service company come out and replace the outer rear tub will run you well over $500.00 and possibly closer to $800.00

Yes With the age of the unit I would just buy a new washer.

OK that is what I was thinking. Do you have an opinion of what model to buy? I know that is not a repair question but you hear and see problems with the different machines.

Whirlpool or Frigidaire/ Electrolux are good brands .
