    On a Maytag Neptune front loader... usually the groaning noise is the motor control board failing. This board located near the floor on the right side provides 3 phase power to drive the motor and if one of the phases fail then the motor will groan and it will not develop the proper torque either so it may not spin the clothes very well. See www.12002039.com for information on diagnosing the motor control board.

Sounds like the main bearing on the back of the drum assembly has gone and needs replacing, the drum has moved out of alignment or the electric motor has burnt out. Best to have a Maytag repair tech or someone who is qualified to look at it.

LG Washing Machine makes a groaning sound.


Its most propably bearings on the drum,normally the seal in front of the bearings is leaking ,allowing water into the bearings, which destructs them..
It is bigger job to take the drum apart but do'able with basic tools.
If possible, source the seal and bearings beforehand.

Another factor can be overloading,try lightening the loads first..
