Sounds like the main bearing on the back of the drum assembly has gone and needs replacing, the drum has moved out of alignment or the electric motor has burnt out. Best to have a Maytag repair tech or someone who is qualified to look at it.

SOURCE: Loud clicking noise at spin cycle

It sounds like you have a motor coupling that has gone bad. Most of the Kenmore top loaders that I'm familiar with are direct drive machines. Which means, they use a motor coupling between the electric drive motor and transmission to run. If you are in the habit of doing heavy loads like comforters, blankets and jeans this can put a heavy burden on the motor coupler and wear it out faster. The coupler is designed to take the burden of the punishment in order to protect the transmission and drive motor and it is common for them to wear out. The coupler is fairly easy to replace and usually runs about $15. It is located inside the machine between the drive motor and transmission under the wash tub. You would have to remove the outside machine casing, the water pump and drive motor to get to it, though. Make sure the machine is unplugged before attempting any repairs involving removal of the drive motor. If you are not mechanically inclined, you may want to seek the aid of a repairman. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: My Maytag Neptune MAH4000AWW will not finish a full cycle.

I had the same problem. I called customer support and they gave me these instructions:
Shut off the water supply to the machine, disconnect the hoses from the back of the machine. Pull out the hose and pull out the little screens and clean them with water or soak in vinegar. I was skeptical but did this and the results were amazing. Apparently if the screens get even a little "gunked" up (my screens really didn't look that bad) the machine senses the change in water pressure coming in and shuts it off. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: GE washer (wjsr4160gww) makes loud noise during spin cycle

Remove the front panel and you will see two metal guides attached to the front of the frame. One of them will probably be bent and the transmission assembly will have jumped over one or the other of the guides. You need to manually pull it back to center then straighten the bent guide. May have been caused by load being out of balance or machine not properly leveled. Good luck.

Inspect the outer drum to see if one of your springs has popped off. You can also inspect the lower drum area to see if your vibration dampener has worn out or broken free. Also you may need to check your rear bearing just between the large pulley and the drom to make sure is hasn't separated from it's mount.

My washing machine started as usual, but after going to empty the machine it seems to be stuck in the spin cycle. Any ideas? Can the machine be reset?


Have you tried unplugging the power and leaving it unplugged for a few minutes to try and reset itself? If that doesn't help then please provide the model number - should be located on the door somewhere.

Loud Bearing Noise During Spin Cycle- MAH4000AWW


I don't know these front loaders so well but, here's a couple of things to look for.
1) If belt driven, look for the spring loaded tensioner. Once tension is released, check the pully & see if it has excessive play.
2) Check the gasket on front panel & see if drum has rubbed thru it in order to make metal to metal contact.
3) There is alot of pressure on that rear bearing...make sure it's not egg shaped or scored on the inside.

If all else fails, shotgun it (in other words, replace those moving parts you suspect:)

Whirpool front load washer model LHW0050PQ4 makes sputtering sound during spin cycle


Power plug off the wall first. Check out the pump which comes after the filter, something shd be clogging there; it shd move freely.
Remove back of machine to see if anything is touching the wheel belt or pulley.


Pl click helped, if helped.

MY NEPTUNE WASHER IS MAKING NOISE DURING SPIN CYCLE WHAT PART DO NEED TO REPLACE? MODEL # MAH4000AWW


If the noise starts before the drum starts to turn it might be the pump is obstructed. If it starts soon as the drum starts to turn then might be the drum bearing. If it is a knocking vibrating sound open the door and grasp inner drum try moving up and down and side to side . If there is any movement aside from the whole mechanism then the spider that holds the shaft to the drum is broken . Need a tech

Maytag Neptune Front Load Washer Model MAH4000AWW low last spin


two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news

Loud noise during spin cycle


is it more like a roar or a train going by? if so your rear tub bearing is going out. very expensive have to replace the tub, basket, spinner ring and shaft and seals about 4 hrs for an exprienced tech to do took me 7 hrs to do for the first time. but it will be very close to $1000 to have done not much less to do it yourself.

Grinding Noise when Washer Attempts to Spin


It is probably the same problem because it is trying to drain during the spin cycle. My machine sounded as though a chain wis clanking, the solution was removing a coin caught in the drain pump. Access the pump from the bottom of the machine. 4 screws hold the mounting bracket on undo those, the electrical connection and two hose to the pump. Undo three screws holding impeller to motor and coin can fall out. Examine for damage if it is not too tore up, put back together. Keep in mind that when you unclamp the hoses that water will come out.
