Question about Maytag Bravos Series MVWB850YW 28" Top-Load Washer with 4.6 cu. ft. Capacity, 13 Wash Cycles,
Washer was making a loud "airplane" sound during spin cycle. Started about 2 weeks ago, house continued use. Now halfway through spin cycle unit displays 'uL' code even with an empty basket. I removed agitator and inner basket to see if something was stuck between. I leveled the unit but still same problem. I ca't tell if these are two seperate issues or caused by the same thing.
If it's a roaring noise, the tub bearing is probably wearing out. Spin the tub a little with your hand, if you hear a little of the roar, that's it.

Its probably you stator plate and rotor. But you need special tools for this repair. There a spring that is under 200 pounds of pressure and if you take the screws off that hold the plate its going to fly into you face if your dont use the special tools to depress the spring. Is it more of a clanking kinda of noise? DOes it olnly happen with heavy loads? Try this out. Fill the washer with water only. and get it into a wash cycle with water only. If there is no noise then put in like a load of towels. A heavy load. Now if you hear the noise now then its for sure you stator plate and rotor..hope this helps, but like i said you need those special tools to do this repair or injury can result from the spring part.

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)

The main center bearing is going bad that's why it is not wanting to spin as fast and is also making the loud noise when its spinning i.e. sounding like a jet engine firing up or metal grinding noise. I would not repair this very expensive cost around $300 to $600 to fix I would go buy a good quality used one or a new one sorry for the bad news but that's what it is I see 2 of these a week in my shop same problem but hope this helps.
