Question about Maytag MVWB800V Washer
This is usually an issue with a worn drum bearing or a motor problem. Unplug the machine and turn off the water supply. Disconnect the hot and cold water hoses from the rear of the washer, and remove the end of the drain hose from the standpipe or laundry tub. Tape the washer lid closed then carefully lay the washer on its front panel. Place padding on the floor to protect the surfaces.
Use a 1/4˝ Allen wrench and loosen the rotor mounting screw as far as it will go. The screw is captive and cannot be removed from the rotor. The rotor is seated on the splined tub shaft. Rock the rotor back and forth and pull it off the shaft so it contacts the screw washer-head, then further loosen the screw. Do this until the rotor is removed from the shaft.
Check the rotor and the stator for any sign of metal-to-metal contact. The bearing is definitely worn if there's no issue found with the stator and rotor assembly. The bad news is, the bearing is molded into the outer drum and it requires the replacement of the complete outer drum assembly which includes the bearing. The outer drum assembly is part number W10157673 and it costs about $170 to $200.
