Question about Maytag Ensignia MAV4758AWW Top Load Washer
My Maytag Ensignia makes a very loud noise during the agitation cycle. It is coming from under and inside the cabinet. The noise is in time with the movement of the drum, and the drum seems to struggle to move back and forth. Any ideas?

Travioso, there was two service flashes out on this model concerning the seal and bearing which means they had an issue with this washer. The howling noise you are hearing is the bearing and will need the new designed triple seal and bearing kit. This should be covered under your warranty, I believe it is 5 years. The numbers for the service flashes are TDL-0048A-B. Call Maytag and inquire about these service flashes, these should be covered. Catriver.

The bearings on Maytag Ensignia's are part of the seals that keep the water in. Once you start hearing the bearings begining to go, you likely will have a leak following shortly thereafter as the bearing greased is washed out by your laundry soap. Up front. This is a procedure that requires specialty tools and takes me about 45-60 minutes to complete. The easiest way to tackel this job is to take your model number (just on the back side of the console) and take it to a local appliance parts store. Ask them for a tub seal kit. (I can't give you a part number since there is no model number listed) but they should be able to pull it up for you. When they bring it up to the front, inside the seal kit is not only step-by-step directions, but also the part numbers for the specialized tools required as well. If you opt to go the repairman route, I'll forewarn you, the company I worked for charged around 250-300 for the repair on this. Send me back a message if you have any troubles or other questions.

Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,
this is a very common happening and it means
This usually means that a seal is degrading or dissolving.
This washer is a top loader, Right!
I believe it calls for HE ( High Efficient) laundry detergent.
If we use to much of either it will cause this !
This usually happens due to using to much detergent or bleach.
You said, Black oil like residue discharged from washer during use. Stain clothes, almost impossible to remove. Loosened nut on agitator but it will not budge, and am afraid of damage if I try to pry between agitator and bottom of drum.
Please remember to leave a rating before you go!
