Maytag MHWE450WW01 sounds like jet engine taking off during spin cycle. I'm sure it's a bearing but not sure which part to order. Any videos on repair would be helpful too! Thank you!​

Yes, its the rear outer tub bearings have worn out, they don't sell the bearings separately, they only come pre-installed when you order the rear outer tub assembly.

Here's the rear outer tub assembly for your model:

You can see its very expensive and out-of-stock most everywhere.

Tub Gasket
Part Number: WP8181673

There is a HOW TO video in the Tub Gasket part that shows you how to.

Jet airplane noise mean bad bearings. Although Whirlpool/Maytag doesn't offer the bearings and seal separately, you can purchase them in a kit from ebay. Find the bearing kit by putting W10772619 in the ebay search box.

If you're handy enough to remove the guts of the washer, then you're handy enough to go one step further and knock out the old bearing. In fact that's the easy part. Getting the washer apart is the hard part.
