Customer Question

My Maytag Bravos top loading washer growls loudly when in spin cycle. Sounds like it could a bearing noise. If so is this expensive to repair? Washer is almost 8 years old.

So unfortunately it is a rather expensive repair. If you're really handy you can do it yourself for about $150 with parts, otherwise you'd need to call a technician to replace the parts which will cost about $300-350 with parts, trip and labor. Below is a video that shows you how to replace the parts and this unit is actually made by Whirlpool since Maytag was bought out in 2006 so don't be confused by the video.
