You'll need to tear the unit down to the bearings and remove them. All bearings have a manufacturer and number on them. You can get replacement bearings (sometimes) at your dealer. I have had much better luck at Motion Industries or WWGrainger. Look in the phone book for bearings. A shop that sells them will be about 10% of the cost that it would be from Maytag. Sometimes the dealer won't even offer a repair; the will want to sell you an assembly with the bearings already in it. They may also tell you that the bearings can't be replaced. Don't fall for this; if you can get to the bearings, and get them off, you can certainly put the new bearings on. One last thing: the dealer may tell you that you need a special, rubberized bearing. Don't let them fool you...the bearing shop will have them too. If you washer is a front loader with 2 bearings on the spindle, it is wise to replace them both. I have done this on my own wasaher. Maytag dealer's estimate: $250 for the assembly, $250 to install. My cost: ~$55 for the bearings (both of them) and my time. You can do this!

If the washer is making a loud noise the drain pump might be going bad or might have something caught in it. Remove the drain pump from the washer and inspect it carefully. Look for anything that might be caught in it, a piece of wire, plastic, etc. If nothing is wrong with the pump, but it's still noisy it will have to be replaced.

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Tub Bearing If the washer is making a loud noise the tub bearing might be worn out, this is a common problem. The bearing can be replaced.

Clutch If the washer is making a loud noise in the spin cycle, the clutch assembly might be worn out. The clutch assembly makes the connection between the transmission and the inner tub. It is designed to allow the tub to get up to the proper spin speed gradually. As the clutch wears out it may become loud during spin or just after the spin cycle finishes. The clutch is not repairable, if it is loud or not working properly it will need to be replaced.

Drive Belt If the washer is making a loud noise the drive belt might be defective. Over time the drive belt will dry out and start cracking, eventually a piece of the belt can break off resulting in a loud noise whenever the motor is running.

Transmission If the washer is making a loud noise the transmission might be worn out or defective. There are many other more likely causes for noise from a washer. If the noise turns out to be caused by the transmission it may have to be replaced.

Transmission If the washer is making a loud noise the transmission might be worn out or defective. There are many other more likely causes for noise from a washer. If the noise turns out to be caused by the transmission it may have to be replaced.

Drive Motor If the washer is making a loud noise the drive motor bearings may have worn out. Washer motors are normally almost silent when they run. If the motor is run without a belt hooked up to it and it's loud it will have to be replaced.

Water Inlet Valve If the washer is noisy or loud, particularly when the washer is filling, the water inlet valve is at fault. Replace it.

Tub Seal and Bearing Kit If the washer is making a loud noise the tub seal and bearing kit may need to be replaced. This is a common problem and the parts are relatively easy to replace.
Rear Drum with Bearing If the washer is making a loud noise the rear drum with bearing might need to be replace. On this washer the bearing is not sold separately, the entire rear drum will have to be replaced. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. However, the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the drum and bearing will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

Bearing If the washer is making a loud noise the bearing might be worn out. As bearings wear out from friction they gradually get worse and worse until they fail. In the meantime they get louder. If the noise primarily happens during the spin cycle the bearing is likely the problem.
Drive Pulley If the washer is making a loud noise the drive pulley might be worn out, cracked, loose or bent. Remove the drive pulley and inspect it carefully. If it is damaged or defective replace it.

Pulley If the washer is making a loud noise the pump may be worn out, or something might be caught in it. Remove the pump and inspect it for debris. If it is clear and the blades spin freely the problem might be somewhere else.
U-Joint Kit If the washer is making a loud noise the U-Joint may have failed. This is the primary drive mechanism for the agitation motion in this washer. Although this is not a very difficult repair for a DIY'er with some experience, the part is expensive and so it may be worth considering a new washer.

Motor Coupling If the washer is making a loud noise the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and transmission

Indesitw123 front load washing machine making very loud noise when spinning


The noise you can hear is the drum bearings, the seal between the drum and bearings has failed and let water into the bearings which has destroyed the bearings.

When on a fast spin it is extremely loud, too loud...


Water in bearings causes rust, and rust in bearings creates noise...This is the most likely reason for the noisy spin....Check for any slop in inner drum....Bearings and seals and likely the shaft probably need to be replaced....Quite a big and complex job....Good luck....Nomess

Very loud pump. Sounds like a bearing


if it's whining really loud, it's definitely the bearings. If its not spinning and just making a loud humming noise, it may be a bad capacitor or something lodged in the impeller.
