My Maytag Atlantis model#MAV6200AWQ, Ser#20125928ZK, is SO loud!  It is loud as soon as it starts spinning and continues until the cycle stops.  Loud is easily 90+ decibels.  It also does leak a little water if the shut-off is left on when the washer is not running, I can hear it dripping inside.  I am not sure if it is a screaming bearing or the motor/transmission.  I am leaning towards bearing because the motor and transmission are still functioning fine, but, what do I know I am an oil technician.  Please help us.

Dave

Pumps can also be a cause for loud noises on this unit.  You can take the belt off and run it.  If the noise is still there, the only thing that is moving is your motor.  Bad motor.  You can also raise the top up (top not the lid) and start the unit in spin while you are holding the tub from turning.  This does not take a lot of pressure and can literally be done with one finger.  Doing this stops your tub from moving and takes the bearings out of play since the only thing that is moving is the input shaft.  The water leaking into the machine when not in use is going to be a valve not seating all the way.  Let us know what you find, I'm off to finish the lawn with my newly refreshed Gin & Tonic with a fresh wedge of lime to make it healthy. :dude:

:crybaby:  I'm sorry, my pump was making so much damn noise I couldn't here you.  Did you say something?  You always want to check everything.  I never tell a consumer I THINK this is bad.  Pop that top and front panel and start checking my Latrobe green bottle drinking friend.

ARE U KIDDING ME?

IT WORKED!!!

New pump and belt, it is quieter than my new dishwasher!!!  It has been soo noisy for soo long I forgot how quiet it should be!  The old pump was noisy just in my hand, so I went a couple of towns over and bought a new one, I am a licensed heating/HVAC so I got a discount and flew home and put it in.  I just finished, sweating my ass off.  You see I have to take the dryer out to take the washer out, they are both in the downstairs bathroom.  If anyone ever has any heating questions, I am here.  I will be contributing to the sudds fund!

Maybe you should negotiate with the Samurai about getting promoted to a master? Then you will have even more credibility when you answer people's questions in the HVAC forum.
