I was just at my uncle's the other day, and his washer sounds like a plane taking off during the spin cycle. I think it may be like a plastic on plastic kind or sound. Maybe a bad bearing, or something needs to be lubed ?
The machine is only a couple of years old. I told him I'd look into fixing it for him.
I've done a few repairs on my old washer before. (Also a Maytag) I'm very knowledgeable in automotive technology. I figure If I can replace an engine in my Camry, I can fix his washer.
Let me know what you think.
