Maytag MAV7600 - loud noise on spin cycle

I have a maytag mav7600 that I purchased in 2001 that suddenly started making a very loud grinding noise when it starts in the spin cycle. I did remove all the clothes and just ran it empty to see if the tub would spin at all and it does but the noise continues. I assume it is something with the transmission but hopefully it is not the entire unit. Could it be the thrust washer assembly?

Also, if you would please explain how to get the front cover off that would be helpful!

Thanks in advance, Tod.

    Sagacious, thank you for the help. You were correct. I pulled the hose from the tub and a piece of wire was stuck in the pump. I will still have to replace the pump due to the blades being damaged but it works good enough now to allow us to continue to have clean clothes.

It's more likely something caught in the pump or bad pump. Remove the belt under the machine and check the pump pulley for noise.

The washing machine started making a grinding noise during wash cycle (minor) and a much louder grinding noise during the spin cycle. Is this a bearing? and is it replacable? Maytag MAV7600

sounds like a bearing... although it could be the water pump... water pump is an easy fix... bearing is not an easy fix... take the belt off the bottom of the pump (under the machine) and see if it spins freely by turning it w/ your hand... or if it seems really stiff... if it looks good then it's def. your bearing...

The screeching sound could be the drain pump or something stuck between the bowls. Try turning the inner bowl by hand and listen for the noise. There should be a position on the timer, just before the spin, that allows the machine to drain before it starts to spin. Try to find the right spot and listen for the noise when only the drain pump is running. Good Luck.
