My maytag Bravo XL washing machine has gotten really loud…

Customer Question
My maytag Bravo XL...

My maytag Bravo XL washing machine has gotten really loud when it is in the spin cycle and spinning.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Maybe 3 years old

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Everything else is working fine, and the spin speed is still very fast.

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.
