Question about Maytag Ensignia 3.3 cu. ft. Top Load Washer
My Maytag Ensignia Washer will spin and drain during the spin cycle but makes an awful racket and will not spin during the wash cycle. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim

The bearings on Maytag Ensignia's are part of the seals that keep the water in. Once you start hearing the bearings begining to go, you likely will have a leak following shortly thereafter as the bearing greased is washed out by your laundry soap. Up front. This is a procedure that requires specialty tools and takes me about 45-60 minutes to complete. The easiest way to tackel this job is to take your model number (just on the back side of the console) and take it to a local appliance parts store. Ask them for a tub seal kit. (I can't give you a part number since there is no model number listed) but they should be able to pull it up for you. When they bring it up to the front, inside the seal kit is not only step-by-step directions, but also the part numbers for the specialized tools required as well. If you opt to go the repairman route, I'll forewarn you, the company I worked for charged around 250-300 for the repair on this. Send me back a message if you have any troubles or other questions.

Its probably you stator plate and rotor. But you need special tools for this repair. There a spring that is under 200 pounds of pressure and if you take the screws off that hold the plate its going to fly into you face if your dont use the special tools to depress the spring. Is it more of a clanking kinda of noise? DOes it olnly happen with heavy loads? Try this out. Fill the washer with water only. and get it into a wash cycle with water only. If there is no noise then put in like a load of towels. A heavy load. Now if you hear the noise now then its for sure you stator plate and rotor..hope this helps, but like i said you need those special tools to do this repair or injury can result from the spring part.

Sounds like it is the bearing on the water pump. Take off back plate and replace and remove 3 screws and two hoses (the one hose is a waste line so make sure you have a bucket to empty our waste water) after removing these remove belt on bottom of pump.
