Making a sputtering sound on spin cycle

Each time the drum spins, it sounds like someone put a playing card in the spoke of a bicycle.

    It sounds like the tub bearings are going. Same problem in my 6 year old maytag. We are not repairing it and starting a money-pit.

    The 'card in the spoke of the wheel' you describe is more like a grinding sound with us now and the tub will no longer drain and it shuts down in the rinse cycle with a strong acrid electical smell...It is getting replaced.

SOURCE: "howling" noise during spin cycle (still there after changing burned off belt)

Travioso, there was two service flashes out on this model concerning the seal and bearing which means they had an issue with this washer. The howling noise you are hearing is the bearing and will need the new designed triple seal and bearing kit. This should be covered under your warranty, I believe it is 5 years. The numbers for the service flashes are TDL-0048A-B. Call Maytag and inquire about these service flashes, these should be covered. Catriver.

The water pump may be going bad...Yes it probably is a bearing. Take the belt loose and try turning each pully until you find one that makes noise or is hard to turn. Pump and motor should both spin very easily with out noise.

I'm trying to figure this out also. I think its coming from an air vent located on the top right of the machine (facing front.) It was blowing on a tag...still investigating. Also dances on initial spin up. I'm on concrete and travertine and I think the plastic feet are sliding on the marble. Am cleaning dust and putting rubber pad down to see if that fixya. I'll post back.

Sound like something has gone in between the drum and the outertank, usually a bra wire.. unless you can see it poking through a hole in the drum the only other access points for retrieval are through the sump hose at base , or the removal of heating element.. other than that it becomes a strip down job... but usually the 2 access points are sufficient..

With the little bit of information you have given I would assume you have something stuck in one of the baffels ,((or possibly the most common is a Bra wire in one of the drum seals on the drum))

or a more in depth problem would be something in blower wheel (like the old playing card in the spoke of a bicycle)) when we where much younger.
