Maytag MAH4000AWW front-load Neptune Washer (1999). Have service manual but it has no info re: increasingly very loud "roaring" noise during high-speed extraction spin. Sounds like, but much louder than, approaching old-fashioned subway rushing into station. Noise has become louder and louder over last few months. Machine is well balanced and does not hop around or vibrate excessively. What other repair/maintenace options are there to fix this than replacing outer tub bearing, which manual indicates requires whole outer tub assy and is prohibitively expensive; better investment would be to buy new washer.

Second issue: cold water wash: Starts cold but then switches to warm/hot initial fill. I think this may be related to fill valve thermistor (which is exactly where?). I noted from searches this is issue with a different top-load washer with what sounds like a similar board logic control system in regard to water fill. Please confirm.
