Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Model MAV5000AWW that is about 12yrs old makes a noise that can only be described as a lawn mower with a tree limb stuck under it.
Probably a coin or something in between the 2 drums being thrown around. You will have to remove it somehow if it is as it will damage the drums. First check for any loose parts in the case that may just be knocking around and then try and see if you can see anything in between the drums by useing a light and looking through the holes in the inner drum. If you see anything that should not be there it will need removing. May be possible to get it out by removing the lower drain hose from the outer drum, the door seal if a front loader or the heating element. Start with the easiest to remove first.

Your maytag is really an amana and the bearings are bad. Yes it does cost a lot. If i were you i would buy another washer. Get a whirlpool. (whirlpool now owns maytag)

Usually this is due to either the drum support breaking or the back bearing being bad-neither easy to fix- or worth it. Try lifting the drum up and down, if it moves up and down they are bad. I see this a lot, and the price of repair isn't worth it. Craig

The bearings have collapesd due to the seal going faulty. If bearings can be accessed to from the outside, it is possible you could do the repair. If big bearing and seal is accessed from the inside, suggest tech. do it as it gets dirty and a lot more complex.

SOURCE: loud banging noise during rinse
Most noises from a washing machine occur during the rinse or spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.This will solve your problem.
