So unfortunately the only thing that makes a roaring noise during the spin cycle on this washer is a bad bearing seal and shaft. This is quite a project to replace these parts but there is a video that you can watch to see the process if you wanted to see what you're in for. Whirlpool makes the Cabrio washer as well as this Bravos washer with the Maytag brand name on it so don't be confused by the names in the video. The parts used are the same parts since Whirlpool bought out Maytag in 2006.
