Sounds ok with the belt off. With front off it seems to be noisy in spin cycle. If I push in gently on tub during rinse cycle the noise stops. Of course if I push to hard it shuts down to the imbalance switch..

If it sounds ok with the belt off then I would try a new set of belt and a water pump.

Here are the belts and pump for your washer.

If it's ten years old or older and you have never replaced the belts it's time for a new set anyway.

Hope you find our website helpful.

This part still makes it sounds like a noisy tub bearing.

Any chance you have a digital camera that does video clips?

Would be great if you could shoot a little clip of how it was acting.

 Yeah, we all end up sounding like our dads sooner or later.. :)


It not all to hard to replace the bearing. If you decide to do a bearing job you will also need to put a new tub seal kit in it so it does not leak when your done.

These at the parts for that model washer that you would need.

You are doing a great job on this site.

Thanks, we want to get a lot of photos and video's put on.
It would be great if I had a video right now of what a bad maytag bearing sounds like. I could then just point you to the video and say does it sound like this?

The video camera goes with me everyplace now, so over time video's and photos will be added.

Glad I found it.

Me too,
