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.

I have a Maytag MAV6300AWQ top load washer that is making a LOUD noise during ALL cycles. We lifted it up in front and looked underneath; the belts look okay; the large one had some slack in it; maybe...

If the belts are old they will allow the motor too much outward room, so that the motor shaft can rub against the bottom of the machine. Also make sure the motor rollers are not cracked, which they have a tendency to do.

Maytag washing mchine makes a loud noise when on spin.

It sounds like your main bearing has gone out. It's quite an expense to fix and generally isn't worth fixing even if you do the repair yourself as the parts run about $600 by themselves and it takes about 1/2 a day to replace them. You can't replace the bearing itself so you have to replace the rear half of the outter tub and the inner tub.

Neptune MAH5500 Neptune has progressively gotten louder on spin. Very loud noise sound like bearing going. Continues to get worse. Can it be fixed or too expensive to justify?


If you get a very loud noise coming from the machine, and this noise is louder when it spins faster, then it is often because of a problem with the drum bearing.

The drum bearing is bad, Check if the drum has excessive play.

To replace the part you take apart machine, undo the belt and depending on the model you may need to remove more parts.

To get a quote on repair call Maytag at the number listed on the owner manual, the machine may still be worth repairing.

You can find parts and diagrams for most models here.

Maytag Performa - Loud Noises during Spin Cycle

This washer is JUNK!!!!!! We have the same washer (2 1/2 years old) and same problem. Tried to replace the bearing myself, no luck. So I called a repair man to come out and look at it. As soon as i told him the model number, they would'nt even come out. Very common problem for this washer. We are on our way to Sears to purchase a Kenmore.....GOOD LUCK
