    Hey everyone.  I just joined up, I found this message board (luckily) and parts supplier today.  I'm hoping to buy a house next year, so I'm sure at some point soon the tips and knowledge here will become very important to me, more so than right now.  Anyway, I have a problem.
Mom and Dad have a Maytag Neptune MAH4000AWW.  Overall, besides the issues with the non-draining door gasket and bad control board, everything else has been OK.  Now, there's an annoying squeak and thumping that occurs when the washer begins going into the spin cycle.  The thump occurs early when the spin starts to accelerate, but the squeak persists right up until it hits the top speed.
What is causing this and please, how can I fix it??  I love starting loads of laundry late at night, but hate that this has the potential to wake others up!

does the sound come from the rear of the machine,and does it sound like it is associated with the drive, or is there an unbalanced sound with cabinet creaking??

Based on the sound and the fact that it squeaks right up until it reaches top speed, I believe it is the drive.  I just started a load, so I will give you a definite answer shortly.

if you remove the rear panel,a large drive pulley will be exposed- check for any water leakage etc. in the area around the pulley shaft- also inspect belt for damage.
