Hi - new to the forums - this looks like an awesome resource - thanks for any help you can provide.

I have a Maytag front load washer (model # MHWE300V11 - it's a 3000 Series washer) that is a little over 2 years old. It has recently started to make a fairly loud roaring type noise that sounds sort of hollow as well if that makes sense. This is only on the spin cycle. It used to be much quieter. It doesn't vibrate much, and appears to be balanced okay.

I suspect it may be a bad bearing. I'm pretty handy with taking stuff apart if I can get my hands on a repair manual etc.

Here's a video - I'd appreciate any thoughts or advice anyone might have.

Thanks!

Yup, it sounds like those rear bearings are failing/failed...the bigger question is, Why did they fail in only 2+ years??? :blink: If you do not have the service manual yet go to the "manual request " section ..........On the "suds-O-meter" I would start off with a sixer and then add a pint of Black Velvet.....

... go to the "manual request " section .........

1) not using HE Detergent ?
2) grasshoppers aren't allowed into that section

Thanks for the replies. We are using HE detergent. I'm happy to sign up and become an apprentice if it will help me fix this on my own.

We have a new puppy and we're washing a lot of rugs that are getting pee'd on - I'm guessing that's what caused it - it never sounded like it was off balance. Can you not wash small rugs - (18" x 36") in a washing machine?

Any idea what I might be looking at cost wise for parts and any special tools to fix this?

A 6 on the suds o meter plus a pint of Black Velvet doesn't sound promising - maybe better to just go buy a new one?

Thanks again.
