Question about Maytag Performa PAV2200
Upon the end of the spin cycle (at the end of the wash) the washer makes a loud screeching noise. Something needed to be lubricated? Thank you, in advance, for the assistance.
I just made this repair and was able to clean lining and drum and coat with silicone spray, did not have tool for brake spring. the spring and gravity took care of removal (BE CAREFUL), and for re-installation I used longer screws of same thread size and pitch(10-24x1-1/2",I believe) and was able to pull brake drum back into place. suggest pulling from 3 screws evenly spaced around drum,a little at a time(2-3 turns each). on my machine,the extra length of screw was on no concern, but check yours. after tightening, you can re-install origional screws one at a time, they may be better suited for it(locking head). If you have the machine leaning on it's side as I did, it will help to remove front panel and support the wash tub on the side to keep it from sliding off center, I used a wad of rags. It works fine, if it will last(silicone). If parts and money are not an issue, I would probably use new stuff.GOOD LUCK

Flip, the screeching is probably coming from the brake rotor lining. I've seen this a lot on Maytag top loaders. It's not the easiest job to do. You have to remove the pulley, thrust bearing assy. then you need a special tool to take the tension off the brake spring, remove the stator and snubber to replace the brake rotor lining assy. You could take it apart and see if it will clean up, but usually the brake has to be changed. Check out the picture...Catriver..post back.
