That would depend on where the noise is coming from if you remove the top cover and diagnose that the noise is coming more along the area of the center back wall then that would be the bearing although when a motor starts to go you could also have motor noise which would be towards the bottom of the unit if the noise is starting mainly during the spin option and sounds like a grinding noise this could also be a bearing as well.three screws located in the rear of the machine that hold down the top panel remove these three and slide the top panel towards the rear. This will allow you to see where your noise is coming from if you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick
p.s if you can turn the drum by hand and still hear a grinding or a type of scrapeing noise alot of the time it is a bearing issue but you would need to inspect the unit further to make sure that it is please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to help others in similar situations in the future Thanks

Loud noise during washing/rinsing cycles


I just replaced the bearings on my Front loader Maytag MAH5500B, as it sounded like a freight train during the spin cycle. The bearing replacement fixed the train problem.

NEW PROBLEM NOW: It's been about a month now since the bearing job and now something is clicking/binding when you spin the back belt wheel. I have taken the belt off and carefully move the wheel and I still get this clicking noise. It sounds as if someone is hitting the plastic drum that the tub is surrounded by. I really doubt it's the bearings this soon, as the sound is not the same! No leaks or metal shavings to speak of or rubbing of the belt wheel.

Seems like it's more noticeable during the wash/rinse cycles then the spin.

Can anyone help.???

Maytag washer makes loud grinding noise during the spin cycle


if it's making a noise then either your drain pump bearing is going out or your thrust bearing is going out (assuming the noise happens in both spin and wash). Tip the washer backwards so that you can get underneath of it. Take the belt off and spin the pump pulley on the right side. This should spin effortlessly.

The middle pulley is the trustbearing pulley. Spin this--- one direction it should have a little bit of resistance--- the other should have more resistance

You won't get near the life of your old maytags out of any machine you buy now days (average life is about 5-7 years). Your description, likely sounds like a bad tub bearing. The easiest way to verify this is pull the washer forward and crawl back behind it. Remove the screws (1/4" or 5/16", I forget which) on the access panel located in the middle back of the unit. Once you take that off, you will see a large silver pulley. Severe bearing you will see orange discolloration from where water has been leaking. Of course if yours is noise only and the leak is coming from an un-related area, you can also test by putting the machine in a spin and listening by the back pulley. BE VERY CAREFUL, THIS IS SPINNING EXTREMELY FAST AND IS VERY DANGEROUS IF YOU GET TOO CLOSE. If I am correct and the back bearing is bad, it takes 2 trained techs about 1 1/2 - 2 hours to replace the tub (which the bearing is molded into) So cost wise you'd be looking typically from the 300-500 range for replacement. The part itself is usually 150-250 of the price depending on where it is purchased from. I'm sorry I know this isn't the answer you hoped to hear, and I do hope that I am off target, but this will save you a service call fee by doing a simple check. If I am right and you want to keep using your unit until you can afford a new one, there are plastic pans availible a local appliance parts stores and even some harware stores you can set the unit in to keep it from leaking on the floor. This is an inexpensive alternative while saving up and still getting your laundry done.

"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.
