Maytag 3000 series front load washer noisy - video included
Posted 22 May 2011 - 11:42 AM
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.

1) not using HE Detergent ?
... Why did they fail in only 2+ years??? If you do not have the service manual yet
... go to the "manual request " section .........
2) grasshoppers aren't allowed into that section

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?
