The machine water ceal and bearings must be changed before it spoil the drum.there is small metal under washer drum to give u sine noise if the drum unstable.and if you keep using the the machine,drum get demaged.mostly all front loading machines are like that.the test is,open back cover check if there is rust on the centre shaft,that means leaking throw the ceal and the door and try to list up the inner drum if plays means problem with bearings as above.

Have a Maytag Atlantis model MAVT634AWW- on all cycles it makes a loud noise like bearings grinding- what could it be and how can I fix it-Thankyou

The first place to look is if something has gotten trapped between the agitator and the drum. Typically coins etc can find there way near or under but not cause a problem. If something has caught it would have to be metal or hard plastic. The agitator can be removed.

Second place is to see if something has become stuck in one of the holes of the drum. It would have to be like a wire/nail that is scraping against the tub held in place by the drum.

Last resort! Being a Maytag you may have a longer then expected warranty on the moving parts. If you do it might be about time to get the Maytag Guy off his b---.

Hotpoint Aquarius 1100 - Grinding Noise From Drum

This sounds like the min bearings have gone, open the door and see if there is any play up and down on the drum. if so its the bearing if not it could be something that has fallen from a pocket and got stuck between the metal clothes drum and the oute drum casing. a take apart job i am afraid for both issues.
