Our washing machine makes a lot of noise when it is spinning. it sounds like a bearing or something is going bad.
Answer You can remove the access panel on the back of the washer, and inspect the tub bearing from there. Look for signs of a leak around it, also rotate the tub by hand, and see if there is dragging with the tub.

Loud thumping coming from machine during spin cycle. Machine is level and does not move when I try to rock it by hand. But when the thumping starts the machine starts to rock. I replaced the tub bearings a year ago. Is it the struts on the bottom or is it the support?
You will want to check the spinner support which may have broken and would cause the thumping noise. Check for lateral movement of the tub by pushing up and down on the inner tub. You can also remove the baffles and check to make sure that the bolts for the spinner support are not broken.
My Stacked Maytag Neptune sounds like something serious is broken inside during the spin cycle. It bangs like there's someone inside beating on it with a hammer. It appears to be perfectly level and plum.
You will want to remove the baffles inside the drum and check to make sure that you do not have a broken bolt or loose bolt that holds the tub to the spinner assembly. If broken then the spinner support would need to be replaced.
Does the inner drum and support come as one assy. because on my washer the support is riveted in not bolted. I just want to make sure that I have all the parts that I need with out ordering anything extra or not enough.
Answer Ron, Are you sure you need the drum support W10181639 ? You didn't mention an issue. The MTG "Neptune" washer has always had a "two piece" drum system. The spinner support W10181639 and the spin basket 6-2717080 . The spinner mounting bolts are located inside the three (3) rear baffles 22001985 remove the two Phillips head screws at the front center and rear center of the baffle and remove the assembly, you'll see the 1/2 inch nut that holds the basket to the support. If yours has Rivets, someone has modified your washer, you will need to replace both parts, or re use the basket and shaft.
Knocking on front right of machine during spin cycle (standing in front). Opened the top and the tub is not sitting level. It may be supposed to be this way. Have looked at your answers already and think maybe the shocks are bad due to it not being level. However, also looking at the 3 arm tub support too. Any suggestions as to what else it might be? Wife is getting up set at the nosie and tired of holding it down. It is level as it is sitting on a concrete slab. Thanks in advance for your help. Lee
Answer Lee, There are also springs 34001274 that hold the tub up, They attach to the outer tub and mount to the cabinet flange on each side. You'll want to check and make sure the cabinet flange isn't bent or deformed and the springs aren't stretched or broken,etc. If the spinner support was defective, you would normally hear a knocking noise,during the high spin speed(especially) but the tub position wouldn't be affected. You also want to check and make sure the washer is levelled in both directions and all four feet are on the floor solidly and the leg locking nuts are tight.
