Is it a front loader? If so the rear bearing is bad. This is very expensive to replace.

Maytag FAV6800 AWW transmission?


the noise is more than likely coming from the clutch as you correctly surmised that the transmission only functions the paddles. As far as the airplane sound during the spin cycle well that is a bearing issue also called the "spinner support". I would be very careful attempting to replace this part yourself as doing it wrong results in a very leaky washer. The clutch runs about $150 while the spinner support runs about $250 so even though the diagnosis of the tech was clearly wrong (transmissions are relatively cheap and are fairly easy to put into these machine) it still might not be worth the money. Maytag did extend warranties on clutches for very specific models but it only covered the part and not the labor so you may still wind up with an expensive bill. I hope this helped.

Whirlpool washer WTW6400SW very loud spin cycle, sounds like airplane taking off


Most likely it is the spin tube bearing worn. Reguires some know how and special tools. Requires a major dismantle of the machine and usally I did these repairs in the shop. Bearing will eventually sieze over use and time. Labor will probably exceed the value of the machine.

Maytag Neptuen Washer makes loud noise when spinning. Sounds like an airplane taking off.


The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle.Get the spin bearing and motor checked.Replace the faulty. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

On spinning cycle machine has whirring sound and does not spin


This has to be a front loader right? if yes i have baaaaad news. you say it sounds whirlly kind of like and airplane taking off or a train going through your house? If yes YOU HAVE A BAD BEARING!!!!!!! not good news. you are better off replaceing the unit because this repair will cost more than buying a new washer. Now if it is a top loader this would be a different issue. please clarify if it is a top loader or a front loader?

Roars when spin cycle


You are right it is the bearing also called a tripple lip seal and there are special tool to do that job if it has a metal outer tub I would not repair it. If it has a plastic outer tub the repair will fix it
