The washer works great but the spin cycle is very loud. It was never that loud before but it does the job. The belt is on correctly, it spins fantastic, it doesn't shake or rattle. I just don't know why it is so loud when it spins. It started about 2 months ago. Thank you
My neptune was so loud it sounded like it was taking off, it turned out to be the bearing in the drum, the repair man wanted $1200. to fix it. i called maytag and this part has a lifetime warranty and they sent it to me in 2 days.

Re: spin cycle is very loud but works well
This is joyce
Try to take the back off and tighten the pully on the back shaft where the belt is. it is probl. loose. mine was and this will cause a loud noise. if this is not the problem then it is bearing in drum.

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire washer is making a loud noise during the spin cycle. This could be an issue with your bel, motor, or tub. In order to find the cause of your noise you may need to disassemble your washer. This is not a simple DIY job and I would recommend contacting a technician to come out. This will help prevent any future issues or personal injuries. -Matt
I just replaced the bearings on my Front loader Maytag MAH5500B, as it sounded like a freight train during the spin cycle. The bearing replacement fixed the train problem.
NEW PROBLEM NOW: It's been about a month now since the bearing job and now something is clicking/binding when you spin the back belt wheel. I have taken the belt off and carefully move the wheel and I still get this clicking noise. It sounds as if someone is hitting the plastic drum that the tub is surrounded by. I really doubt it's the bearings this soon, as the sound is not the same! No leaks or metal shavings to speak of or rubbing of the belt wheel.
Seems like it's more noticeable during the wash/rinse cycles then the spin.
Sounds like you have bad bearings. If you use powder soap thats the problem. Powder soap doesnt dissolve all the way and gets into the bearings and eats them away. you will most likely have to have a service technician come out to replace them(Its not just bearings they sell you more than you need and you have to take everything apart... big job). After that use liquid soap.
You may have a bearing problem and it will need to be looked at by a qualified LG technician. That is a big job and will require total disassembly of the tub and drum assembly to get to the bearings. There are 2 of them.
this is my experience repairing the maytag washer Atlantis mav series 9750 aww, I had to replace the spin bearing since it was making a jet engine noise when it was spinning out the water. its not an easy job for my 1st time taking this machine apart, you literally take it all apart to get to this bearing, but now I can show how to do it with pictures making it easier for you to do it. even if you have to replace something other than the spin bearing, this how to tutorial will show you how to get to most of the parts in this machine tutorial located here tutorial located here https://sites.google.com/site/maytagwasherrepair/maytag-washer-repair
