Maytag Bravos Washer MTW6700TQ1 grinding sound in spin cycle

3 posts in this topic

Hello and Merry Christmas to all!

I have a Maytag Bravos Washer MTW6700TQ1 and so far it has served me well. I have been noticing this strange sound towards the end of the final spin cycle. Hard to describe but maybe sounds like a rubbing grinding noise. I did some research and from what I had found out is that maybe the Drain Pump assembly had something in it or it was bad. The water was not draining out properly so I had to go on my gut thinking it was the drain pump. I took the back off and took the pump off and sure enough there was one of my wife's nylon stockings caught in the pump. I thought to myself this is awesome and way to easy. Put it all together and ran a load through. Towards the end of the final spin cycle the noise was still there. Not as bad but not a normal sound. I had bought a new pump but have not used it or taken it out of the package which I was told I could return it by my local parts shop. If I spin the drum by hand I don't hear anything abnormal. Wonder if it could still be the drain pump or ....... Thanks for your help and Merry Christmas!

With the rear cover off, run the machine in spin - while it's running and you hear the sound, unplug the pump - can the noise still be heard ?
