Default Loud noise during spin cycle
Model Number: MAV5920EWW   Brand: Maytag   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Recently our washer has gotten VERY noisy during the spin cycle. Sounds like a jet taking off. My first thought was that it's a bad bearing. I've removed the front cover, and run the washer. The sound is definitely coming from the transmission. My question is, does the whole transmission have to be replaced or just the bearing(s)?

The price of a new transmission is around $220.00. Even if I do the work myself, seems like I would almost be better off just getting a new washer.

What do you think?

Yes, For a little more money you can get a new, no frills top loader and that is what I think you should do.

Hi Chet

To get that large a unit you will probably have to go with a front loader with all sorts of electronics. I can only suggest in that case tha you purchase the extended warranty.

The basic top loaders are 3.2 cu ft and up, but I don't know that you can get one as large as you need.

I am not that conversant with current models, (they haven't had time to break yet) so I can only say if you can find a top loader in that size made by any one of the top manufacturers (GE, Whirlpool/Maytag or Frigidaire) without electronics I would go for it.

That is probably as close as you are going to come to what you want. It has some electronics, here is what the control unit is

Part number: AP4695588

Part number: AP4695588


and I have not worked on that drive train and don't expect to for a couple of years to come. Whirlpool is going to eliminate their basic direct drive machine and I imagine something like this is what they will go with.
