Question about Maytag MHWE300VW Washer

1 Answer

Maytag front loading model MHWE 300VW12 bought from Sears in Oct 09. Spin cycle is like a jet plane taking off. You can hear it all over the house. Even shutting the utility room door isn't effective. Any idea what's going on?

SOUNDS LIKE JET PLANE WHEN IT GETS BY RINSE AN SPIN TIME


I assume you mean it sounds like a jet plane when it spins, if so, I suspect a bad tub bearing. Depending on age of the machine, probably too expensive to repair.

Maytag MHWE 400ww bought 11/08/11. It sounds like a jet fighter when in spin mode, so loud you can hear it outside of house, sounds like a possible dry bearing ( I have millwright experiance) cannot find...


I had a very similiar problem with my new washer about a year ago. I finally adjusted the legs on it, to get it completely level, and it stopped sounding like a jet fighter. It wasn't off by much, in fact, it was so close to being level, I didn't think it was worth adjusting.

During spin cycle washer is making loud noise


If it is making a sound like a loud rumbling sound similar to a jet plane taking off, it probally due to the seal has failed causing water to leak into the bearings. The bearings begin to rust, and no longer round and the noise gets progressively louder. It can be rather expensive to fix. Get a few estimates before deciding whether it is worth fixing.

Sounds like the inside is a jet plane while in spin cycle very lose inside like something is loose ore broken like a belt


If the washer is vibrating a lot, then you could have a bad drum bearing. There are also counter weights and shock absorbers that could be bad. The best thing to do is take off the back panel and look inside. many times the problem can be clearly seen. Usually a loud noise like a jet plane on spin cycle means a bad bearing. This can be costly unless you can do the work yourself. The parts are readily available.

most likely transmission bearings are worn out (sounds like a jet plane taking off) unfortunately this requires replacing the transmission which is a costly job.

It sounds like the high speed of your motor is not functioning which tells me it is either burnt and needs to be replaced, or that the control dial is malfunctioning. Because those motors have two or three speeds, usually one of the speeds of the motor is malfunctioning. Always check connections too, and see if it functions in the spin on another cycle. Best of luck. C
