Question about Maytag SAV5701A Top Load Washer
I have a 2.5 yr old Maytag SAV5701AWW wash machine that recently started to make a loud howling noise during the spin cycle. The belt burned off recently (on the motor pulley was where the burning occurred) during a spin cycle. I replaced the belt and also spun the drum and agitator to see if something was 'locked up'. Both seemed to move freely. After changing the belt, the machine still makes a loud howling noise on spin cycle (can not hear a person talk 5 feet from you!!!). Some other observations: the drum seems to stop abruptly when the spin cycle stops, the drum/motor/pump assembly move back and forth a great deal when the spin cycle begins.... Any thoughts? Thanks!!!
Travioso, there was two service flashes out on this model concerning the seal and bearing which means they had an issue with this washer. The howling noise you are hearing is the bearing and will need the new designed triple seal and bearing kit. This should be covered under your warranty, I believe it is 5 years. The numbers for the service flashes are TDL-0048A-B. Call Maytag and inquire about these service flashes, these should be covered. Catriver.
