Question about Maytag Washing Machines
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!
