    Hi my maytag atlantic top loader started making a really loud noise in the wash cycle this morning. I tried the spin cycle and it works fine. Just not the wash cycle. Where should i start? I have taken the top of the machine off.

    Thanks for your response. I have taken off the top and front and also turned it over and checked the drive belt. I have now filled it to the smallest amount so i can run it.

    1.I really do think it is a bearing.

    2. Which direction do i try to turn the spindle in the tub to check if it is hanging up?

    3. Also how do i go about replacing the bearing

    4. How do i remove the spindle and remove the tub to clean it all out?



    Thanks again for your assistance.

Is the machine making a grinding noise? If that is the case, you could have bearings that are dry. Check the seal behind the tub to make sure it is not ripped and losing it's grease.
If the seal is ripped and there is no grease, the bearings will eventually seize up.
If the seal is good and you can spin the tub by hand fairly easily without the tub flopping all over, then check the "dogs" that balance the tub, they may be rubbing. If they look ok, then check the motor and/or tranny

What ever be the reason it is important to take a look into the noise source to confirmt he fault. It can come from the motor when in load conditionas in the wash where there is a heavy loadd with the water inside.
Nextt the spindle drive assmebly, the bearings can be bad, the beltt can be slapping.
Also if the suspension is having an issue then the main tub may be hitting the sides with the wash cycle in motion, check if there was over load speccially if there were blankets inthe wash, if the fault is repeating then check with a good lighting to see the action of the drive BUT TAKE PRECAUTION AND CARE.
Dirt accumulation of the tub spindle can also make it drvie hard with friction, so check after the clothes are removed for the movement of the spindle.
Hope the advice helps.

    The assembly can be acccessed from the rear, place your washerr after drainign , side wise and remove the bottom pulley assmebly to see the fault in the spinle, if there is no water leak, then try to use some good cleaner like WD40 / or light oil to spray into from the botttom pulley end.

    Hope this helps.

The drum has coiled springs to secure the drum in place while it spins. You will need to remove the top and the front panel to see if they are securely attached

Well it is ethier Belt, Cluch ,motor ,Or transmission. But it does sound like your transmission . The loud clunk is the brake in the gear case ( Trans.). It might have broken off.
