Honestly, I would either call Maytag once you get the estimate and see if they will do anything for you (ie-cover the cost of the parts and/or labor) even though it is out of warranty. This is costly repair, and that machine was not Maytag's best. When Maytag took over Amana, they built the SAV series on the old Amana platform, and unfortuately it was not able to live up to the Maytag "Old Dependable" name. The new Maytags, however, which are built on the Whirlpool platform, are very dependable and we have had very few issues with the models starting in "MTW...", and we own a Maytag Home Appliance Center so we deal with these issues on a daily basis.

Maytag Performa is walking and banging with even loaded lightweight tub (no towels or heavy items). It is so loud it is about to explode. Hear could be a snubber ring. Service fee is enormous and part is...


Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Look to make sure none of the springs around the base broke and make sure the milk stool (tub support) Is not cracked.I have only had to change maybe one snubber in fifteen years.See more broken springs and cracked milk stools.When you grab the tub support at the bottom it should glide around on the center snubber,not real loose firm but moving.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

Does this machine have a coupling or a belt? We had a repair man come out and he said a plastic part cracked on the bottom and would cost more to repair and suggested a new washer/


This washer is a belt driven machine. I'm not sure what part or problem you are having, so it is hard to say whether the part is worth more than the machine.
If he showed you the part or told you the part, you can check the price here and see if it is worth it to you.

Loud spin cycle - leaks water


No boot on a top loader, the tub seal and bearing are gone, water leaked from the tub seal, rusted the bearing and quite possibly the milk stool and transmission. Check your warranty, the transmission may have a 5 year limited warranty, usually it will include the tub seal and bearing with the kit.

This problem is normally attributed to a combination of two things: A worn out snubber ring, and a worn brake assembly.

The snubber ring assembly is a white teflon ring that sits under the wash tub at the base (called the milk stool, because it looks like an upside down milk stool).  The entire wash tub assembly will rest on the snubber as it helps get rid of vibration while the tub agitates and spins.  When the snubber starts to wear down, you will notice an increase in tub vibration during the spin cycle and it will sometimes begin to squeak. NOTE: YOU CANNOT OIL THE SNUBBER! DOING SO CAN CAUSE MORE DAMAGE.

The brake assembly is mounted between the pulley wheel and transmission under the washer.  As the brake assembly ages, the pad (which is mounted along the rim of a metal disc) begins to glaze over.  As it glazes, it will also squeak and cause the sudden "slamming" to a stop.  The glazing, coupled with humidity in the air can make this condition worse.

Both problems occur normally with this model washer and can be attributed to normal wear and tear.  I recommend replacing the brake assembly and snubber at the same time.  You will need, however, a special Maytag brake removal tool and spring removal tool if you decide to attempt this repair yourself (it is possible to accomplish this without the aid of a repairman).  Let me know if you need further assistance.  CAUTION: THERE IS A 200 LB COMPRESSED SPRING UNDER THE BRAKE HOUSING.  ATTEMPTING TO REMOVE THE COVER WITHOUT THE BRAKE REMOVAL TOOL CAN BE DANGEROUS.
