During spin makes a loud roaring noise. Sounds like it is coming from the back side of the tub. If you spin the tub by hand you can hear the noise as well but on a softer note. Have changed the water pump but it too still makes more noise than I believe it should. Repairman suggested changing the boot but admitted he really didn't know what was wrong. Hate to put more money into a machine when I could have practically bought a new one as it is. Machine is only three years old.

Re: Roaring noise during spin cycle
The roaring noise is from the drum bearing and it will only get worse with time until it fails completely. You will need to replace the rear tub assembly which is about $300 for the part. The rear tub assembly part number is 285984. It will take about 2 hours in labor. Make sure you are using HE (high efficiency) detergent and only about 2 tablespoons per load.

Reach into the drum (on a front-loader)and push upward to see if it moves at all, you should feel no play where the drum support shaft passes through the bearings... The bearings will "roar" loudly during spin if the main seal has leaked water into them... Top-load washers will exhibit the same roaring if the seal fails in them also.

Roaring noise must also come during the spin cycle I suppose...it seems your bearing and or drive belt/gear is causing you this noise. To fix this, you would need to completely disassemble the washer and inspect the bearing and or drive box that activates the turning motion. It is a large job.
Very likely the main bearing and drum shaft-inner tub will need replace. Not worth repairing, easily can cost more than the washer. Buy a new whirlpool front load duet, super capacity or the top load whirlpool with and agitator. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists
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.
A loud banging sound in the pipes is usually caused by a water hammer effect. Water hammer sounds are caused by a valve closing in the system, and yet the water in the pipe is still flowing because of its kinetic energy. The banging happens as the water hits the valve that prevents it from going any further. If the kinetic energy is great enough, it can actually cause a pipe to burst or explode at the end. If a valve is closed near the beginning or in the middle of a system, the water keeps flowing after that point, and it can actually create a vacuum. This vacuum can cause a pipe to implode if the stress is too great.
Roaring type noises may be coming from a spin bearing. This bearing probably had the grease washed from it because of a tub seal leak.
Squeaking sounds in a new washer are usually caused by the new parts getting broken in, and will usually go away after several washes.
The sounds of water gurgling, slurping, or sloshing during a spin cycle are usually caused by the drain pump pushing the water out of the washer tub.
Too much water pressure can cause a whistling or squealing sound. Adjust the hot and cold intake water valves to relieve this sound.
Metallic clinking sounds during spin or agitation may be the result of drive train components meshing during speed changes or after a pause.
Swishing or swooshing type of sounds may be caused by water and suds trapped between the tub and basket during a spin cycle, and will usually clear up as the water is drained from the washer
Did it make this noise just when it stopped spinning. Just for a couple seconds? If so, it's only brake noise and not a concern. If it does this all during spin you probably have a bad tub bearing. Is it a roaring noise? This is what the bearing will sound like.
