    The drum bearing ans seal is at the rear of the outer drum. You need to remove the iner drum first and then press out the bearing and replace it. The complete washing assembly will have to be dismantled. Not a task for a novice . But you might succeed if you are really handy. Electrical wiring has to be disconnected too. The details to describe this procedure are complex and detailed. But what you are trying to achieve is to get the inner drum out of the outer drum. You will need a set of roller bearings and seals. have another look at this and consider whether its worth it. ?

As it spins very slowly back and forth it also makes the grinding squeeking noise.


Hi Robert.
What you describe sound like a distorted drum and/or collapsed bearings. The grinding noise is typical of bearings which are worn out, and the squeaking can come from the drum rubbing on the door seal.
Check if the inner drum is loose and flops up and down. Also spin the drum by hand and see if it's touching the rubber door seal anywhere. If it spins freely but make a growling noise your bearings need to be replaced..
Neither of these situations are good. A serviceman is probably required to know for sure.
Good luck.

Check that drum (2nd below) is not rubbing on this door seal

Indesitw123 front load washing machine making very loud noise when spinning


The noise you can hear is the drum bearings, the seal between the drum and bearings has failed and let water into the bearings which has destroyed the bearings.

I have an LG washing machine Model WM1814CW. It makes a loud clanking sound in the spin cycle and the back of the drum has a thick black greasy substance on it & has leaked onto the floor. What could...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. It sounds like it is your spin bearings. It would explain the grease and the noise also. The spin bearings have to do with the spinning of the washer. Usually, if there are loud noises associated with the washer, it is either the motor drive or the spin bearing.

My whirlpool duet makes an awful banging noise when a load of laundry is in the spin cycle. It is completely level and I cannot figure it out.


reach inside drum that turns and try to move it up and down. If there is any movement the spider at the rear of the drum is broken. Will need inner drum and outer rear tub with bearing and seal.

My maytag model no.mav4755aww makes a whinning sound at the beginning of the spin cycle


Hi
Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.Since you hear whining it means that the bearing is damaged and the seals on bearing are gone too so it rotates without lubricant. It might be possible to hear whining while you rotate empty drum manually...
Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum. When the bearings have gone bad, the noise is constant the entire time the drum is spinning.
Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.Then replacing the bearing is suggested.
Let us know if you want something more else accept the solution.
Thanks for contacting fixya.com

your inner drum bearing lip-seal has gone bad and the inner drum bearings are now water soaked and rusted and need replacement,parts are cheap,but depending how long it takes to remove and clean the bearing races and time/labor you will need to check on in your area

Machine makes awful noise during any movement, spins very slowly, not enough to spin out. Making an awful noise, like stripped gears and won't drain


There are three reasons for such awful noise during spinning. Either the drum or the bearing turning the drum. Check for drum bearing failure if your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings.

Thanks

"howling" noise during spin cycle (still there after changing burned off belt)


Travioso, there was two service flashes out on this model concerning the seal and bearing which means they had an issue with this washer. The howling noise you are hearing is the bearing and will need the new designed triple seal and bearing kit. This should be covered under your warranty, I believe it is 5 years. The numbers for the service flashes are TDL-0048A-B. Call Maytag and inquire about these service flashes, these should be covered. Catriver.
