Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I have a homemaker hmw60501G, its only 14 months old. Just recently it won't spin anymore. It makes a loud sound but won't spin at all. I've looked underneath but all looks good. The belt seems to be tightened but nothing.

    I also have the same model with the same problem. I've had a look at the machine and I think that something is stuck between the inner and outer tubs, preventing it from spinning freely.

SOURCE: "howling" noise during spin cycle (still there after changing burned off belt)

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.

SOURCE: Slow to spin and making a loud noise.

Control boards don't growl, the fry out and die. Sounds like a drive train problem to me. If it's a front load machine, the spindle/bearing assy. has gone to washer heaven. If it's a top load machine... could be the transmission, brake/clutch assy. or the tub bearings. In either case, if it's less than 5 years old, the drive system will be warrantied through the manufacturer. If you could provide a make and model number, I could narrow this down to a fine point.

the pump hose is knocking if you can unplug the machine and tilt the machine on its back you can see the hose get a cable tie big one you can cable tie it down that would stop it from moving that's why its knocking if the pump is not on that side then your suspension leg is on its way out meaning you will have to call your local second hand shop to have a look but be for you do have a loo your self save money

No, I'll tell you before forking out $ $ for some bad news.The noise is your bearing. You have to replace the outer tub .Its not going to be repaired any other way.The idiots who designed this washer made this a non servicable bearing.The labor is high not to mention the outer tub is also.REPLACE THE OUTER TUB.

I have an Amama NAV5800AW washer machine and about a month ago every time the washer is on spin cycle it makes a VERY loud sound, and lately has been leaking water during the spin. Any thoughts.


Hello,

The noise you are hearing is the main tub bearing. Water has been leaking past the seal and into the bearing causing it to rust.There is no lubrication on the bearing anymore and you are hearing the metal on metal grinding. You are looking at a costly repair of about $350. I hope this helps you out.

During the spin cycle, the machine shakes violently and dances across the floor. It has a loud squealing noise during this. My Performa is only about 14 months old. This is very disappointing for a Maytag.


Look in owners manual. I think these washers have a 1/2 hp. variable speed motor. make sure the washer is level from front to back and side to side, if its not that could be the problem. The motor has a lot of force, the squealing could be a bad bearing not sure.

Frigidaire front loader makes banging noises in spin cycle


hi there.......if this problem has just recently appeared...its quite possible that 1 of the tub suspension springs has broken resulting in the tub lying at an angle and causing this unbalance....you can check this by tilting the machine and looking at the tub susension points

That is a characteristic of bearings gone bad. You should look into replacing the bearings.
