Maytag Performa Washer

We have a minimum 5 year old Maytag Performa washer, not sure of the model. For quite a while now whenever the washer came off spin cycle, it made a high pitched squeal. It doesn't do it anymore, but we have noticed that there is a good quantity of grease under the washer. It still seems to be functioning pretty well but I was wondering if you can give us a clue what could be causing the leak and how we can go about fixing it.

Thanks

Hi brawn253

The oil is comming from the transmission. The only way to fix it is to have it replaced. alot of the orlder machiens have this happen and keep working for many years after. as for the squeal its normal. its just the break some of the oils have got in there and the squealing is a resault of that. I wouldnt be to worried about it.

Soap dispenser doesn't open


My recommendation is to switch over to a tablet and merely put the tablet on the floor of the dishwasher bypassing the soap holder all together. It should work just fine that way. good luck.

Agitator noise in maytag performa machine


The noise in your washer tub could be caused by some object lodged under the agetator. Lift off agetator and check. Or somthing could have gotten into the sump tub. this could be a major job as you would have to remove the complete inner tub assy. One other problem I can think of it could be worn tub bearings. If the washer is 10 or 15 years old I would replace it,

This washer is JUNK!!!!!! We have the same washer (2 1/2 years old) and same problem. Tried to replace the bearing myself, no luck. So I called a repair man to come out and look at it.

Maytag washing machine


Hiya .. would suggest you having a look at the balance around the drum, ( normally heavy concrete blocks)... locate the fixing bolts and tighten them up ....should sort your prob.
Also make sure that the washer is fairly even and tight on its legs.. this is what usually causes the problem in the first place..
