Noisy spin cycle

When the washer is on spin cycle it is very noisy. I have taken the bottom front pannel off to inspect when the machine is spinning and found a small amount of water leaking above the transmission and also the transmission is slinging a brown in color substance all over and around the inside pannels. The washer is only 2 years old. This is a Maytag Washer Model SAV 5710 AWW. I appreciate and Thank You for any help you can offer.

Re: Noisy spin cycle

Hey ****, what you are hearing is the spin bearing. Maytag redesigned the bearing kit on this washer, there must of been a lot of leaks causing the bearing to go bad. They put out a service flash...TDL-0060-B. New seal and bearing kit, part number12002470. You may want to contact Maytag on this for it could be covered. I know you have 5 years warranty on the transmission and If they change that, they have to use a new seal and bearing. back.

Re: Noisy spin cycle

We have had all the problems each of you have mentioned above. Our repairman has also stated it is a common problem. Seems like a design flaw that somebody should be responsible for. Don't buy Maytag!

Water has been leaking out of the bottom of my washer, and it has been making a horrible grinding sound. It finally stopped spinning last night, though it makes noises and tries to run.

Hi just read your posting.Now when is the machine noisy?Is it when the machine pumps out the water or when the bowl spins.Sorry to ask you this but please be accurate when you reply to this question.The reason being is that if it is noisy when it pumps the water it could be your pump but if it is noisy when the bowl turns for the spin then the problem will be your bearings and seals.Select a spin cycle and push start,is it noisy as soon as you push the start button?Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure I can help you.Looking forward to your reply.

Machine making loud noise on spins cycle

Well, the only time the washer (speedqueen) is noisy on spin is if one or both the bearings are faulty. Normally when you get a leak, it means the hub/flange and seal kit need replacement and this also includes the top bearing because when soap suds leak past the seal assembly it drips directly onto the bearing. The acidic properties in the soap suds eats the grease in the bearing which ends up becoming defective. One can also get an anoying squeek if a bottom base gasket is worn or removed. This would be audible even on wash cycle.Conclusion, check the bearing on top of gearbox.

Very noisy and loud vibrations on spin cycle of Frigidaire FTF2140FS front load washing machine

Is it just during the spin cycle that it machine is noisy or the noise is less during the wash cycle? Also is the noise a thumping type of noise or is it more of a whining or steady noise? If is a whining noise, it probally means that water has seeped past the seal and corroded the bearing of the washer. The noise is the failing bearing.

We heard a large BANG and now it is so noisy

The rear bearing in most front loaders lasts an average of 5 years under normal usage. Spin the drum manually with your hand and seee if it is nice and smooth and quiet. If the bearing is ok it is probable that 1 of the shocks is broken on the bottom.

Very noisy on spin cycle only

Hi, please describe the type of noise you are hearing. If it is a grinding type noise, it is likely to be the drum bearing.

Noisy spin cycle

It would be noisier than normal if it was not level.
Best way to tell if it is noisier than normal is to spin the drum by hand, there should be little or no noise from it.
If it is noisy or rumbling, or feels rough, then I would suspect that the drum bearings are worn and noisy.
An hour to complete a wash cycle is not abnormal, and they do do several rinses.

Plz rate my solution.
