If its a front load and sounds like a jet plane taking off when in spin cycle,yes its the drun bearing(s) inner and or outer and the lip-water seal on the outer rear drum area,it takes a while if they get stuck bad,be careful driving out the bearings as if you shatter the outer plastic tub they cost about $500.00 to replace so don't hammer on the bearings too hard and use and let sit in penetrating oil before trying to hammer out

My Maytag mah5500b front load washer makes a loud knocking sound when spinning. It sounds like a problem with the drum. Can I fix this myself?


Could be the bearings or the "spider", the mechanism that holds the drum and is attached to the bearings at the back of the drum. If one of the arms snaps or the bearings go then it sounds really noisy. These are replaceable, but can be expensive and difficult to replace. It may be worth weighing up the repair cost with possibly only a 3 month warranty on the work versus a replacement machine and its' warranty.

I have a maytag neptune, model # mah3000aww. Its making a loud howling sound during spin cycle.


It sounds like the drum bearings may need replacing. This is not a small job, so be sure of what you're doing before you attempt to fix it yourself. Please feel free to get back to me for instructions on replacing the seal and bearings.

My Maytag Performa dryer is making a horrible sound...still working though. Wondering if it is a belt?? Can I fix myself?


go to Sears and purchase the belt with an idler pulley with it. It comes as a kit. The pulleys bearing has dried out bearing that went flat in spots which causes this horrible noise
the top and the front of your dryer needs to come off to access these parts

I have an amana Model ALW880QAW Top Loading Washing Machine. It sounds like a bearing is going bad when the washer is in the spin cycle. I am familiar with repairing applicances and I would like to know if...


I have an Amana top loading washing machine.. The machine recently emitted a burning odor and the machine has stopped spinning. when turned to spin cycle there are bumping sounds and it no longer spins. Does this model have a belt which might need replacing or does it have a transmission and does it sound like possibly extensive transmission work. If it is the transmission, is it likely repair costs would be greater than the value of this machine?

I think the driver side rear wheel bearing ..2000 tiburon


Yes it is the rear bearing. It can be a home fix but you will need good tools and some spare time. Log on to the Hyundai Coupe Owners Club in the UK for guidance.
