Maytag SAV205DAWN, loud and leaking!!

I have a Maytag SAV205DAWN, which is about 4 years old. For a while now during the spin cycle the waster gets soo loud no matter how large or small the load is. I cant seem to figure out whats causing this. Also just recently I noticed that there was a small amount of water on the floor towards the front of the washer. Can you help?

dsands, if the noise is like a train roaring then it could be the bearing. The fact that you have some water leaking leads me to believe that the tub seal leaked onto the bearing. Now this could be covered under the 5 year warranty, depending on the tech that comes out. Another possiblility is that something is caught in the pump and it is leaking. You would have to open the front panel to get a look. On these Maytags if something gets in that pump like a button etc., they will scream like a raped ape. With out being there my gut feeling tells me the seals leaking and ruined the bearing. Catriver.

SOURCE: leaks water on floor and spin cycle very loud

if it sounds like a boeing jet, you will need a new seal & bearing kit. This is something a technician would have to do. many "special" spanner wrenches and spring tools required

SOURCE: water large amounts on floor of shut off machine

To sufficiently inspect your washer to determine where to leak may be coming from, please review the following link:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576656-washer_leak__front_loader

If there is a huge gush of water coming from the washer as soon as you begin the fill cycle, this is commonly caused by a small air hose on the side of the washer drum that connects to the pressure switch. If this air hose comes loose,the water will pour from the wash tub as it begins to fill. This is an easy fix, if that is the only problem.

Another cause, can be a water inlet valve that is leaking by, or a pressure switch that does not keep the water supply shut off when not in use. This will cause the tub to fill up and spill over. The following link explains how to check for this as well:

Read through the information provided and let me know if you are having problems determining the cause of your problem. Please post back with your MODEL NUMBER so that I may be able to accurately determine how your washer is configured. I hope you find this information helpful.

Maytag washer makes loud grinding noise during the spin cycle


if it's making a noise then either your drain pump bearing is going out or your thrust bearing is going out (assuming the noise happens in both spin and wash). Tip the washer backwards so that you can get underneath of it. Take the belt off and spin the pump pulley on the right side. This should spin effortlessly.

The middle pulley is the trustbearing pulley. Spin this--- one direction it should have a little bit of resistance--- the other should have more resistance

Extremely loud noise during spin cycle of my Neptune dryer--just started happening in the last month. The dryer is probably 7-8 years old, so it's not the newer Neptune model.

very loud in spin cycle can mean a bad rear bearing, not something a homeowner would want to try to replace, parts would exceed 6-7 hundered dollars. you may have some extended part warr through the manufacture. still probly gonna be a 5 hundred when the labor is added in

Leak from maytag top load coin machine during spin drain cycle only


Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim
