Maytag washing machine repair

My washing machine makes a loud whining/spinning sound when it is in the spin cycle. But the drum is still spinning normally. It almost sounds like a bearing but I am not sure.

Re: maytag washing machine repair

The water pump may be going bad...Yes it probably is a bearing. Take the belt loose and try turning each pully until you find one that makes noise or is hard to turn. Pump and motor should both spin very easily with out noise.

I have a series 4000 maytag front loading wash machine. The problem is that it makes a loud screeching sound during the spin cycle

You have bad bearings on the drum. This is typical for Maytag and some other machines. A very expensive repair.

Why is my maytag bravos mvwb750wq washer so loud on spin cycle?

Is it moving around? I am guessing not so guess would be the drum is out of balance.

Maytag Neptune MAH6700A Front Load Washer When it spins it makes a whining sound.

It should be making a whirling sound as it speeds up in the spin cycle. But if it getting to the point where it is so loud that you can't have a normal conversation, then the problem is that the bearings are gone and need to be replaced. It is an expensive repair since the mfg does not sell you just the bearings and you must buy a new rear tub. Get a few estimates if this is the case before deciding to repair or replace.

Washing machine making loud roaring sound during spin cycle

Very likely the main bearing and drum shaft-inner tub will need replace. Not worth repairing, easily can cost more than the washer. Buy a new whirlpool front load duet, super capacity or the top load whirlpool with and agitator. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Maytag Neptune makes loud drums like sound 5 min before it stops.

its probably because of the way the clothes are in it. you have to make sure the clothes arent leaning to one side and that they are evenly set up. otherwise when it goes into the spin cycle itll lean and hit the side of the washers inside and make it shake and do what you said it was doing.

Yes, bearing, most definitely. It is a cheap part but difficult to replace.

Whining during spin cycle


Could be a loose belt, or drum bearings,or ( drum rollers if your model is so equiped) In my mind machine would be worth repair when needed.
hope this is helpful
