Ensignia maytag washer noise

During slow and fat spin cycle, the machine makes terrible loud rumbling noise. Is it the bearing that is worn. If so do you know the part number and how easy is it to repair. Please help. Thank you

    I also have a Maytag Ensignia washer, model MAV7557. Last week it started making an extremely loud rumbling, grinding noise in both wash and spin cycles. This noise is much louder than when wheel bearings went bad on my car. I cannot turn the washer drum by hand. Do you think the problem is the drum bearings or the transmission?

    Same problem with loud noise. Sears repairman says that the engine is shot and a new one is required. Plan to call Maytag tomorrow to inquire about quality of this particular unit.

The bearings on Maytag Ensignia's are part of the seals that keep the water in. Once you start hearing the bearings begining to go, you likely will have a leak following shortly thereafter as the bearing greased is washed out by your laundry soap. Up front. This is a procedure that requires specialty tools and takes me about 45-60 minutes to complete. The easiest way to tackel this job is to take your model number (just on the back side of the console) and take it to a local appliance parts store. Ask them for a tub seal kit. (I can't give you a part number since there is no model number listed) but they should be able to pull it up for you. When they bring it up to the front, inside the seal kit is not only step-by-step directions, but also the part numbers for the specialized tools required as well. If you opt to go the repairman route, I'll forewarn you, the company I worked for charged around 250-300 for the repair on this. Send me back a message if you have any troubles or other questions.

    this is the same thing my maytag Ensignia is doing, its only 4 yrs old. I just cant believe that this wash machine is crapping out on me and will cost so much to repair. Thank you for your help and I have called to check on the repair price and from what I tell them they say the repairs will be between 300-375 , so I feel I might as well just purchase a new washer and this time it wont be a maytag.

Why does the Drum spin erratic even without clothes in it?


might be a warped spin basket or the dampers could need to be replaced. could even be a bad spin bearing. if it was bearing, normally would be associated with a loud noise during the spin cycle though.

Maytag ensignia makes a great deal of noise during rinse cycle


"If you dont have a noisy spin cycle and the noise you hear is only on the rince cycle, dont be worried, as this is totally normal. Water sprays onto the drum while the spin cycle is in progress and rewets the clothes to allow any existing soap to be desolved. This noise is in effect the water hitting the drum during the rince part of the cycle.

During spin cycle washer is making loud noise


If it is making a sound like a loud rumbling sound similar to a jet plane taking off, it probally due to the seal has failed causing water to leak into the bearings. The bearings begin to rust, and no longer round and the noise gets progressively louder. It can be rather expensive to fix. Get a few estimates before deciding whether it is worth fixing.

Maytag Neptuen Washer makes loud noise when spinning. Sounds like an airplane taking off.


The spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle.Get the spin bearing and motor checked.Replace the faulty. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com

Maytag Performa PAV2200 makes a rumbling sound while agetating. Suspect a worn bearing or belt? Could you shed any light on this?


Yes it could be the spin bearing at the base on top of the brake assembly. I would suspect that the brake assembly is the cause of the noise as this engaged when you the washer agitates. If it was the bearing it would make a loud noise in the spin cycle, too.
