回答“washer sounds like it wants to take off during spin cycle”My Maytag top load started making a loud sound during the spin cycle back in the winter. I kept getting earaches after doing laundry for a day. It would take a week for my ears to recover. Went to a ENT specialist who asked me if I had been exposed to loud sounds. I told him about the Maytag washer. After having an MRI of my head with and without dye, he said I have permanent nerve damage in my ears and constant tintinnus. I had a Lowes four year warranty. They sent a repairman from Sears to repair it. He saw d it might be months to find parts that was a month ago. Lowes Customer Care is supposed to be trying to help. I just want rid of it and hope the ENT specialist was wrong that my hearing is permanently damaged and that the tintinnus will gradually improve. Not as long as I own this Maytag washer!
