Thank you for your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with your Maytag LAT4915 AAE Top Load Washer.  Notice the two screws on the bottom corners of the front panel.  Remove the screws then out on the bottom of the front panel.  At approximately 45 degrees the clips holding the top panel will release.  With the front panel off you can visually inspect the transmission and suspension springs.  A bad bearing ususlly makes a freight train noise in spin.  I hope this helps.  You can reply with any additional details for further assistance.

Hi Fred: Thanks for your help, which has brought me one-step closer to the solution of the problem. After removing the front cover, I had my first observation of internals of a washing machine. The machine has worked flawlessly for past 7 years and the problem of vibration has been gradually increasing over time, over the past one year. Wouldn�t the root cause may be the components that are undergoing wear and tear. I noticed that there are two springs, under the mounting plate of drive motor. The springs pull away the motor mounting plate in the slide and may be for taking up the slack in the belts. I wonder why the two tension springs are on same side of the motor shaft, instead of one on either side. As I am opening the washing machine for the first time, I will assume that it is part of a well thought out design. Three tub supporting struts and three-tub centering springs, seems to be intact. Again, the vibrations are present only during the spin cycle, doubtful elements may be: 1) Worn out belt driving the transmission 2) Worn out bearing, that carries the weight of basket and securely keeps at the center. 3) Worn out Damper pads. 4) Defective transmission. I would like to have your expert opinion for reaching to the correct diagnosis. Could you suggest how to check the proper functioning of transmission and testing the worn out bearing? I would love to hear from you, with any other suggestions, that you may have. With best regards, Lal

The springs maintain proper tension on the belt. When the washer goes into the spin cycle the belt needs to spip a little so the basket doesn't take off into a full speed spin while full of water. The idea is the water drains out most of the way before the springs pull the motor tighter on the belt to cause spin speed to increase. I would not expect these spings to cause your problem. The suspension spings are not prone to failure. Most likely the snubber that the transmission rides on is the problem. Replacing the snubber is a possible do-it-yourself but you do need to remove the transmission. Check out the following video for more on changing the snubber: Snubber .

Hi Fred: Thanks for your guidance. I will order the belt and snubber tomorrow and let you the results after the replacement. The old belt is showing signs of "glazing" at some points. I am sending you the picture of the springs, under the motor carriage. Please note that two springs are on left side of motor shaft. My concern was, why the two springs are on same side of shaft, rather than on each side of motor shaft. Is it possible to determine, if the bearings in the brake or the tub have worn out? Lal Singh

A:

From the description you give the problem is likely the drain pump. You would want to check the pump belt. The drain pump can be obtained from the following link: Drain Pump . The belt can be accessed by tilting the washer back to access the bottom. Remember to unplug the washer first. The pump can be accessed by removing the front panel. There are two screws on the front panel bottom corners. Remove the screws and pull out and up on the front panel till the two top clips release.
