This washer was working ok and recently has started to make a LOT of
noise when spinning. Can you help me locate the problem? I had the
front off and the tub spins a little off. There is a yellow material
under the transmission. Is this a bearing?

Re: is this the bearing
The yellow condition usually means the transmission has a leak or crack in it. This fluid could be causing the bearing to make noise or it could actually be the transmission doing it. Also, sometimes that yellowish stuff could be coming from the bearing getting water in it from a leak somewhere. Check everything really good for leaks. Understand though, unless you have two special tools, do not attempt to do this job yourself. You need a spring removal tool to remove the springs, and a special brake removal ool for the bottom brake. Be sure you dont remove that brake assembly without this tool, the plate will come off with a huge amount of force. Let me know if you need further help or information. Jim

. according to your washer problem i m writing solution ,please read and follow it:-
Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
check out this following options one by one to locate the fault in your machine.
1)Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.2)Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. (When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.)3)Look for obvious dents and creases in the drum or look for coins or small objects stuck inside the tub underneath the drum when a horrendous noise is made while clothes are in the tub.4)Clear thewater pumpfrom obstructions like coins or small objects when a noise occurs while the washing machine is emptying water.5)Remove the sump hose and look for bra wires if you hear a light scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand. You can also check to make sure a wire isn't poking out of one of the holes in the drum. In this case, you can pull the wire out easily with pliers.6)Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.
The noise, is it a grinding noisy like worn bearings?
put the washer on drain only - is the pump working ok, take the filter out to see if it is turning ok, does that make a strange noise?
If the pump is fine, its back to that noise, it could be be a faulty tacho on the motor ( regulates the spin speed) or motor bearings - has the motor spindle a lot of play on it?
Let me know how you get on and good look!
time to replace the belt , might need a tub bearing too / tentioner pully might have froze . remove the back panel with the washer unpluged look to see if the tentioner is at its fullest possition if so replace the belt .
I would try to fault isolate the noise area by removing the front cover (watch the belt) and start a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket.It’s a 10 minute cycle so let the wash basket spin up to full RPM.Do you hear the rock crushing sound?If it sounds like the problem area is the clutch pulley area terminate the cycle with the Off Key.Check for any trace of a water or transmission oil in that area. If that’s not the cycle causing the excessive noise I would next do a quick wash with no clothes in the wash basket and see if the grinding/rock crushing sound is coming from the tumblers in wash cycle, maybe some change under the tumblers. When you cleaned/re-lubed the one-way roller clutch bearings how did they look?Did the Spinner Shaft Coupler (I show it in this post) rotate freely CW in both the upper bearing (if used) and the lower bearing?Let me know your findings and if you have additional questions.Rich
washer making a load cluck noise when the spin cycle starts. It only happens when the motor turns slow for the first minute during the spin cycle. Otherwise it works fine. if the motor is proper then the bearings in the motor got rusted and that needs replacement.the beasrings are located on the back of the motor.
This is probably a part of the tank water seal. There is a bearing in there also. Does it leak water from that area? Usually the seal goes bad and it starts to drip water down into the bearing below, which starts to rust and then starts to make noise. If you can locate the bearing, you might try dripping a small amount of oil into it to see if it changes the sound any.
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
