Your problem is a bearing of inner tub may also need spider assembly caused by overloading using non HE detergent 0r to much soap if noise gets worst it will take out seal and will start leaking thru-back side under stater motor that you call generator Remove stater drum by holding inner drum and taking rear nut of stater drum after removing drum UN plug wire connections remove 4 bolts holding coil . then remove front of washer remove all counter waits remove all bolts from outer tub remove shocks remove springs and drain and vent hoses pull out the whole basket from unit pull tub in half remove inner tube Pop out both bearings back and front replace with new bearing and seal reverse back together same way you take apart may take 2 people heavy stuff
you need to replance the drum bearings and water lip-seal behind the inner drum,it requires you to completely dis-assemble the machinesfront cover,then remove pulley from drum in rear,drum boot seal,then knockout bearings and seal and replace these then re-assemble the machine in reverse order
if its a neptune front load washer you need new tub lip seal and bearings for the drum as the seal is leaking water into the bearings that hold the inner drum,it will only get worse,you need to remove the inner drumto replace the seals and bearing it takes from 2 to 6 hours depending how hard the old bearings come out of the race
its probebly the main bearing. disconect the power and remove the back. then slide the belt off the big pulley. if you see alot of brown splatter you know its the bearing.if not with the belt removed go to the front and open the door spin the drum fast, if it makes the same noise its the rear bearing.
You have a bad rear drum bearing ( unfortunantly , so do I ) . This involves removing the inner drum and outer drum . The complete rear of the outer drum , has to be replaced , due to the bearing is already installed in the new one . Very expensive to have done and very time consuming to do yourself . You probably should invest in a different washer . Front load washer manufacturers , have not come up with a way to support the front of an inner drum as well as supporting the rear also . Until this happens , rear bearing problems and excess expense for repair , will continue to be the downfall of front loading washers .
I do know there is a set of bearings on the drum drive shaft. There is an inner and an outer. Some places mention that these bearings are no longer available. However, I found on ebay a gentlemen who sells these bearing and the seals in a kit for about $80.00. It comes with instructions on how to repair and will save a lot of money. I have done this once already to the same washer, now I am doing it again. If you search on ebay maytag neptune parts you will find his listing for a bearing kit. He also describes the jet engine noise.
