Why does my washer (maytag mah5500bww front loader) make noise during the wash/rinse cycles but not during the spin.?

The noise could be from a loose wire harness, plastic purse-lock wire harness retainer on the upper hose hitting the top cover ir a plastic injector mold standoff on the outer tub bearing housing, also a flat spot in the belt could cause a tapping noise. Something between the outer tub and wash basket. I have had to remove items lodged in the drain tube between the pump and tub, like bra under wires. Sometimes you can squeeze the tube and feel objects the ate lodged. I always take the tube off the tub side and run my finger all the way down to the pump impeller to make sure. I also check the I can spin the impeller and the nothing is in the pump. Hard to say with out being there. Where do you think the noise is coming from top , bottom , left , or right side?

I have an front loading he 2t washing machine and I am getting the f21 error code. Also, the door is locked, The add garment, wash, and spin lights are on as well.

Hi, you have to unplug the washer from power source. Then remove front lower panel (3 sheet metal screw with 1/4" drive head located on the lower lop of the panel), open pump strainer (looks like a large stove knob, Turn it counter clockwise, lookout because lots of water will gush out. Back flush the pump by filling the outet of the drain hose ( this may dislodge debris that may jam your pump), re-assemble, plug to power, and turn-on. In my case, there was a piece of a metal lodge in the pump impeller.

My Fisher and Paykel Ecosmart topload washer is not emptying or spinning out. I have tried running it back through the whole cycle but it quits at the draining point and starts beeping. Thanks

There is a service summary with error codes under the control panel in a zip lock bag. My pump was being blocked by a bobby pin. removing the basket allowed access to the pump and I was able to clean out the suction. I was amazed by the scum build up under the basket. I will now remove the basket yearly to clean under it.

My maytag topload washer overfilled,

It isn't a sensor problem, it sounds more like your water level tube has pulled loose. This is attached to the outer drum itself. You can see it when you remove your front cover to the right of the outer tub. This tube uses the pressure generated from your tub water level to push air up to your water level selector, which has a rubber membrane that flexes and closes 2 contacts as the water level makes the rubber expand. If that tube is off, the water will just keep running.

Loud and Grinding during spin cycle

More often than not, something get sucked down into the pump. The pump is located in the lower left of the unit (typically) and can be accessed by removing the front panel. You may need to lift the top section to release the front panel. An example - I recently repaired a washer that had a bobby pin lodged in the fins of the pump and prevented it from spinning so that it couldn't drain. I removed the pin and re-assembled the machine and it has worked perfectly.
Hope this helps! Rate my solution!

I have a maytag legacy series, toploading washer. It does fine, until it spins...a very loud screaching sound. Could this be a belt?

most likely your problem is in the pump either the pump itself is bad or there is something jammed in it, remove and inspect pump replace with new one if necessary.
