My Maytag Commercial Technology washer model #MVWB865GW0, type 589-02 makes an awful screeching noise each time the agitator reverses direction. When I tilt the machine back and manually spin the stator, it is whisper quiet. Please see attached videos. The screeching sound happens each time the agitator is working. It's getting louder and louder over time. We bought it in May 2018 and it is out of warranty. Any feedback is appreciated.

That sounds like a bad transmission bearing.

On this model the bearing is integrated in the transmission.

Here's the transmission for your model you can order:
Transmission W11455453


This video shows you how to get access to it to verify that's the problem and replace it:


Let us know how it goes.
