   My Maytag washer model LAT9605 makes a tremendous hammering sound in the spin cycle.   Clothes are not out of balance.   Washer is level and on concrete basement floor.   Sound does not seem to be coming from pump.   Most likely causes??     Thanks,   melvin

hammering sound?? see if something is caught either through holes in tub or at top of basket. lift top and remove clothes guard so you can see between tubs, put light in basket to help. you may also have bad trans. but would throughly exhaust first option before getting rid of washer. this was the last of the old dependables

Does it make the noise with no clothes in it?  If it does, remove the agitator and try it.  Could be hearing the ratcheting agitator clanking around.  Another thing to check if it only does it with clothes (or it is at least louder with clothes) is take the front off the unit.  You will see three arms that attach to the tub and then travel down to the damper, or base of the machine.  They are held onto the damper by two bolts.  Make sure they are tight, you can not tell with a nut driver, you will have to put a socket on them to turn them.  See if they are loose at the bottom, usually the one I find is the rear right one for some reason.  DO NOT TOUCH THE ONES INTO THE TUB.  Try those and we will take it from there.  ASSUMING the unit is level and not rocking!!

Check that the tub top has not worked its way down making contact with the inner tub causing it to hit in one spot during spin.

  Thanks for your responses.   I had to stop washer project because of emergency call to work.  Also my wife has me hanging drapes.   I'd rather be working on washer.  Will get back on washer as soon as possible and will check in with results.  Thanks again to all of you.

  I looked for obstructions between tubs and found none.  but thanks for the tip Jacques.     Read advice from "Trying to help".    Agitator seemed to be ok.   I then tighten two bolts on the each of the three arms which support the outer tub where they attach to the damper.  They did not seem loose but I was able to tighten them, especially the front one.   I was skeptical of this cure but have run four loads of wash (8 spin cycles).    Quiet as a mouse.     Probably a little early to declare "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED"  but this is very encouraging.    Thanks "Trying"    I really haven't gotten to Couching Tiger's idea but since it's not making noise I better quit while I am ahead.   I've used this site before and it never fails.     Thanks for the help everybody.    I'll be back if it acts up or when something else goes bad.

:soapbox:  I was repairing these things 20 years ago young man!  Granted I was only 20 at the time, only slightly better then average tech and probably got so tanked up that night I wouldn't of remembered what I found and still would wind up having to spend an hour poking and prodding around to find it the next time it stared me in the face.  Not a lot of retention in those days.  But over the years I sharpened the skills, switched over to Gin and tonics mostly and remembered a few things about the LAT washer. Know them like the back of my hand now!  Just remember to preheat that bad boy to 350 next time you wash, keep the freezer t-stat at the midway point,  clean the condenser once a year and your dishes should be spot free!  What the heck are we working on again??  All kidding aside, great fix, saved some serious coin and can purchase a few more Mich Ultra's now!  Make mine a Sapphire and Tonic extra lime!!

  Well, things went pretty well with this machine after the December problems.  However,   recently it has on occasion started making noise during the spin cycle.   Last night I noticed water under the machine.  As the machine fills, water seeps out of the outer tub above the transmission.  I took the front panel, top and agitator off and notice that there seems to be play between the inner and outer tubs.  When I wiggle the inner tub around it sounds like it might be  hitting the outer one.  Perhaps this accounts for noise during spin cycle?    With all this  in mind.....      1.  does this mean I need to install a "washer tub stem & hub assembly with nut"  ($70.95 plus S&H)    2.  Does it also mean I need to replace the "tub bearing"  ($55.15 plus S&H)    3.  I see a "tub spin bearing above brake assembly"  for about $20,  have no idea what it is or if I need one.   4.  I need to get a spanner wrench and wonder if I should dare get the univeral type (rather than Maytag specific) since I also have an old Kenmore and relatives with Kenmores.   Thanks for any advice you can give me.
