My maytag is making and odd noise on the spin cycle.

The is probably a broken suspension part... on front loaders it would be the shock absorbers located underneath the drum.....remove the bottom part of the front panel to access them...on top loaders it will be a broken spring... these are much harder to access and fix.. the top must be removed and then many times the back and/or sides...hopefully you have a front loader and it is just the shocks...very easy fix then.

Need to no how to getr in to the inner part of my washing machine. Is there clips holding? Will it pop open by pulling on it

If you are referring to a Whirlpool manufactured TOP LOADER (such as Kenmore, Estate, Roper, Frigidaire and some later model Maytags), the interior of the washer is accessed by removing the exterior washer case. The following link explains how:

Older Maytag and GE TOP LOADER interiors are commly accessed by locating the two retaining clip along the seam where the top panel meets the front of the washer (about 2 inches in from each side) and pushing in with a putty knife to depress. This releases the top and it can be lifted up. The access screws that hold the front panel in pace are now accessible and can be loosened to remove the front panel for full access to the interior.

If this is a FRONT LOADER, the interior is accessed on MOST models by removing the washer top panel. This is accomplished by removing the retaining screws that hold the top panel in place in the rear of the washer. This will allow access to the controls and dispenser. For access to the drain pump and drive components, you will need to remove the kick panel directly below the door. There are a series of retaining screws along the bottom front edge that hold the panel in place.

If none of these tips help, please post back with a MODEL NUMBER so that I may assist you further.

Kenmore washing machine

Whether this is a TOP LOADER, or a FRONT LOADER, the drain pump is located directly below the wash tub in the front of the washer. Accessing either one takes, different procedures, however.

To access the pump on a TOP LOADER, you must remove the exterior washer casing. Follow the steps provided in this link:

If this is a FRONT LOADER, you must remove the lower toe panel directly below the door. Follow the steps provided in this link:

The Kenmore Oasis is a different configuration from the two I've mentioned. There are two pumps on the Oasis. One is a drain pump, while the other is a recirc pump. Both are accessible by removing the rear panel of the washer.

If you require further assistance, please post back with a complete model number so I can determine how your washer is configured. I hope you find this information helpful.

Water leak under the rotating drum

Have you removed the front panel?

If not remove front panel two screws 5/16 on bottom

Start the washer in a cycle. look with a flash lite and look for leak.

It maybe the rubber boot.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

I will also need model number, because a AWS52NW is a top loader model number not a front loader.

Washing machine is leaking at bottom of tub

This could be alot of things. Can you give a Make, and Model Number? Is this a Top Loader or a Front loader.

If its a top loader, Unplug the unit first and then remove the front panel, is the front panel removable? Some are not removable.

Once you have the front off it could be as simple as a hose has a hole in it, or worse the tub seal is leaking and you need a complete rebuild or replace the machine.

Also check the hoses coming to the machine and see if they are leaking or if the drain hose has a problem? or is the water coming from somewhere else, sink next to machine? or drain is plugged or very slow and water is coming out of the drain during spin. Please advise if you need further help
