Out of the blue, our Maytag Neptune front loader starting making a combination grinding/rattling noice during the spin cycle. It almost sounds like something is lose and rattling inside somewhere. The noises only occur when the tub is spinning at what I call 'medium speed.' When the tub is spinning at full speed, the noise just goes away. The noise only occurs when the tub is spinning at that particular speed. I removed the access cover and peeked inside to see where the noise is coming from however I cannot locate it. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Keary

Hi,

I would first check your water pump for a foreign object inside of it, this link will help you:

If that seems ok, with no water in it, try running it through a spin cycle with the water pump unplugged. If the noise is still present, then its possible you have something in between the outer tub and the inner tub, or the bearings are going bad.
