My washer keeps making a clicking noise just before the spin cycle, when it spins I get a OB code. It sounds like the inner tub is going to fly out of the machine and wobbles really bad. what is this?

The load is out of balance. Stop it, open the lid and evenly redistribute the clothing so it is not bunched up. Restart the spin and you should be fine.

Maytag Top Load Washer MVWB850YW making loud noise in spin cycle.


If it's a roaring noise, the tub bearing is probably wearing out. Spin the tub a little with your hand, if you hear a little of the roar, that's it.

Spinning cycle makes a lot of noise


See if the tub will spin freely by hand. Spin it both ways. It should coast silently to a stop. If you hear a dragging sound or it doesn't spin smoothly look for a sock between the inner and outer tubs. Start looking in the upper left side at about the 10:00 and 11:00 positions. That's where i usually find them.
If it seems to spin ok then see if the inner tub wobbles separately from the outer drum. Push up on inner basket from inside. The outer drum and inner tub should rise and fall as a solid piece. If you feel a separation the bearings need replaced or the spider assembly has broken. Only a complete teardown can tell which. Hope this helps.

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

Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Washer making loud noise and wont spin


Check and see if the inner drum is loose and floppy.if it is, it's likely the bearings have collapsed, and require replacement...If the drum feels stiff and tight, it could be that something is jammed between the inner and outer drums. Both situations could be costly...Get quotes....Good luck...Nomess

Whirpool duet is making a clacking noise on the spin cycle.


Reach inside and see if there is any play to the inner/spin tub (up and down) . Tub may be seperating from mounting and spindle assembly.

Check to be sure inner tub is not spinning freely on spin tube. It can be noisy when this happens. When it's spinning and stops it may continue spinning for a bit when this happens. You usually need to replace spin tube, because the tabs that key into drive block for inner tub break off. Also replace drive block.
