Possible that the grinding noise comes from the drum, irregular movement or broken paddles. You can try and attempt only if equipped with a fundamental understanding of the working . I shall give you some tips to this click 1..: Washing Machine
Check the bearings. They may be worn out. If you put too much clothes into the washer at a time it causes the washer not to be able to wash/move/rinse/spin correctly due to the weight and due to this it wears out the bearings. My washer makes a funky grinding type of sound too when its washing and I heard from a friend that it may be the bearings.
My washing machine fills up fine, but then when its time to start aggitating and spin's it makes like a metal on plastic grinding noise, We would like to try to fix it ourself but have no idea which part it is. Could you please HELP?
You'll very likely have something caught in your drain pump. First set the washer to drain and spin. If you hear a hum or grinding noise and the water in the tub isn't draining or it's draining slowly you have something in the pump. If you take the rear panel off you'll reveal the drain pump at the right front corner or maybe middle on this model. if you empty all the water from your machine you can take off the spring clamp (this can be tricky) attaching the thick rubber hose from your tub to your drain pump. (you may want to have some old towels ready) With this off you can feel around for what's blocking the drain pump's impeller. You may want to take the screws out that secure the drain pump to the base and the other spring clamp that attaches the drain hose to the drain pump. Good luck!
The leaks in a washing machine could be coming from many different places in the washer.
The first place you need to check is behind the washer, check the two fill hoses and the water mixing valve.
The next thing to do is to remove the front panel, set the washer on the regular cycle and turn it on to start filling.
Use a drop light and check all the hoses under the washer as the washer is filling. Make sure to keep your hands away from any moving parts.
If the hoses are ok, check the pump for leaks. When the bearings in the pump wear out, that is when the pump will get noisy and that could cause your Maytag top load washing machine water leaks.
Another place that the washer could leak water from, is the stem & seal on the holding tank. When washer leaks water from the stem & seal, the water leaks down the center of the transmission.
When the stem & seal need to be replace, the tub bearing has to be replace at the same time. This is an expensive repair if you have to pay someone to do it. If you do it yourself it will cost you about $110
