Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer

Loud noise on spin cycle


I found your email online I hope you can answer my question.

I have an Admiral Capacity Plus washing machine Model number LNC6760B71.

During the spin cycle it makes a very load hum almost like an airplane engine getting ready for take off. I suspect it is the bearing in the transmission going out. If this is the case it looks like a major pain to change out. A couple of things how hard is it to just replace the whole transmission? Two the machine is about 4 ½ years old. It looked like some of this maybe covered under a warranty, do you know if this could be?

Thanks a bunch in advance.

    It is not a thumping sound and the cloths are nto out of balance. It is a loud hum.

    Maytag Altantis sound likes it is ready for take-off. The hum becomes progressively louder and it seems as though the spin cycle is really cranking up. I've nursed the machine through the spin cycle by opening the lid, thus stopping the spin, and then closing the lid to finish out the load. When the unit is empty I can pull and push the tub from side to side quite easily. Any ideas on what I should look for when I open tear apart the machine? Thx

    My Atlantis makes a sound during the spin cycle too and also during the wash cycle. it is about 6 years old. I d ont want to hear to re adjust the clothes. If it is a bearing, can a hack maechani like me fix it. If it is a belt, again can I repair it. Where can I get a schematic of the machine?

How did that answer get an 83% rating? It is absolutely useless. My washer has the exact same problem as described above.During the spin cycle it sounds like a jet engine. It kinda sounds like the belt hitting the drive wheel but may be bearings in the motor.

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

I have a Admiral Capacity Plus washer LNC6267B71. Washer makes loud grinding noise when agitating & spin cycles. Machine does fill, drain, agitate & spin. Only noise is concern.

Hello. Your symptom describes damaged bearings and/or a damaged transmission. This is a MAJOR, INVOLVED repair requiring special tools to prevent serious injury during dis-assembly and re-assembly. I strongly suggest acquiring outside service to repair this machine if cost effective. There are many parts that have to be removed and then replaced--if you've never done this--don't attempt it. There is a brake spring with 200lbs of torque on it that has to have a special tool mounted to relieve the tension during removal and then re-compress it during replacement for example. Sorry to be so dramatic but I don't want you to get hurt needlessly. I hope I helped you!

Admiral capacity plus too loud during spin cycle. This is not a normal sound EXTREMELY LOUD!! What could cause this??

If its older then 10 years then its probably the tub bearing and seal.If you can do this tilt the machine back look under the bottom and turn the belt by hand and if you can isolate if the noise is not the water pump bearing. rate this !!

My Capacity Plus Admiral Washer will spin and agitate, but it makes a loud grinding noise.

Well, Sounds to me like the Bearings are going out, but it could make that noise a good while, before it goes completely out.. Replacement would possably be more cost effective, Kinda hard to beleive !!!!!!

Admiral Designer Series Super Capacity Washing Machine

This machine will rotate the motor to agitate in one direction and then reverse to activate the pump and the clutch for spin. I would remove the inspection plate and watch the motor and pump in action in both wash and spin, go to and dig around you will find parts and a wire schematic on this machine.
