MVWC425BW model maytag washer makes a sound that it never made before. It sounds like rubbing noise. Fills, spins, empties fine. The only error cod that comes up is F7E1, which says it's the basket speed sensor. Would that explàin the noise?

Hi,

Does it sound like this:

If so, first check your hub underneath the washplate, remove it and see if the teeth have grinded down on it.

Look at post#5 here: FIXED: 110.21302013 Rubbing or grinding type noises during spin cycle He took a photo of that hub where you can clearly see the teeth on the hub grinded down.

Here's the hub for your model, its located underneath the washplate:
W10528947 Hub


To remove the washplate: Watch this video below, wiggle the washplate while pulling it up, some are on tight, use force if it won't pull up easy.
