Yes. The bearings are starting to go. Mine sounded like a jet plane. Yes it is a pain to replace. But I called Maytag and they said it was under the lawsuit and wouldn't do anything for me. Also they charged me a service call even though they wouldn't fix it for me. A whole tub with bearing cost about $400 if I remember correctly. If you look on ebay or other internet sites there are guys out there that will sell the bearings and a home made puller. I had a little bit of trouble with getting mine out because the bearings were so rusted and broken that I had to borrow a slide hammer that my dad had to get it out. But once out it was a fairly easy replacement. I'd do it again if I had to. It also allowed me to learn how to take the entire thing apart. I had to change the pump out at a later date so it helped knowing the ins and outs of the washer.

My maytag neptune mah3000aww spins slowly then reverses, then spins slowly. will not reach regular spinning speed. What is the problem?


it could be a balance problem. Most machines are programmed to abort fast spin if the drum is unbalanced. This can be caused by too much in there, or possible the contents have clumped together somehow. Try a spin cycle only with an empty machine and see if it reaches full spin

How do i repair a lg washer that makes a grinding noise when slowing down from spin cycle


It sounds as if the tub bearing on your machine is faulty. To replace this bearing one needs to basically strip down the entire machine.
Not a job for a novice.

It sounds like you have a motor coupling that is broken. There are videos on YouTube to show you how to repair this. Search for "motor coupling repair on direct drive".

Making loud noise in the spin cycle and now does not spin at all


Sounds like the tub bearing is gone. Get it checked out though. It could be the pump bearing, a cheaper fix. Or as bad as the tub bearing, a motor bearing.

LG Tromm WM2277HW during high speed spin makes noise


I had exactly the same symptom...grinding noise only during high speed spin cycle.

I took the top and back panels off to see how the drain hoses etc. connected. Not wanting to take it apart further, I eventually just took the washing machine outside (I knew I was going to be dealing with water!), pulled the debris catcher front side bottom, and let rip with a garden hose inside the drum with the catcher out (leaving an open drain that could flow unimpeded).

Water flowed quickly out of the open drain, and lo and behold, a small drill bit came out with the water flow. This bit, presumably had gotten through the drum grating, and was resting on the bottom of the housing, scraping and grinding when the drum was spinning.

My Capacity Plus Admiral Washer will spin and agitate, but it makes a loud grinding noise.


Well, Sounds to me like the Bearings are going out, but it could make that noise a good while, before it goes completely out.. Replacement would possably be more cost effective, Kinda hard to beleive !!!!!!
