I have a Maytag Neptune stacked washer & dryer. New 1999. A 2000 series electric and gas pair.
The dryer is flawless, but the washer has developed a grinding noise during the spin cycle. Obviously a bearing.
Had the "Maytag man" check it out. He confirms a bad bearing, possibly the shaft, too. Recommends replacement instead of repair (estimate $1100.00!)
He says Maytag, Amana, Hoover, Jen-Air and Magic Chef are now owned by Whirlpool and I should look to Speed Queen, GE or Bosch, And since the Neptune is permanently stacked I can't just replace the Washer. Is this all true? Any suggestions? Thanks!
