Maytag Top Loader Washing Machine Legacy Series

I have a fairly new Maytag washer machine that has a high pitch squeaking noise while agitating. Does anyone have any clue as to what could be wrong? The drum is off center a lot. Is that normal for this washer?

The drum should be on center. It sound like a damper pads issue. The damper pads are located beneath main support housing on base's machine. Check that they are on place and not broken. Good luck !

When my washer was on the spin cycle it was making a very loud high squeaking/buzzing noise, could this be the belt and how do i fix the problem? Thanks Crystil


The belt would probably squeak in the agitate direction also. I suspect a tub or clutch bearing is going out. If you find signs under the washer that it's been leaking, the tub bearing needs to be changed. It's a major disassembly job. The clutch bearing may be easier.

GE Washer Model WJRR4170E4WW squeaks while agitating


There are four suspension rods that the tub hangs on. When the washer is agitating the tub will rock back and forth and the rods will move back and froth as well. To fix this noise, lift up in each rod and put some lubricant in the cup that the rods fit into at the top of the washer.

Note that it is best if you use a lithium-based lubricant rather than silicone based lubricant.

The washing machine makes a high-pitched squeking


No, not if the noise is only when rinsing, if it makes the noise when spinning generally then possibly but if only noisy when rinsing sounds like a filter blockage on the waste pipe. clean out the filter behind the flap on the bottom of the front panel

MAYTAG top loader makes high pitched squeal when agitating/spinni


This is a classic symptom of pulley/motor shafts/bearings in need of lubrication. It's not the agitator. You'll need to take the back off (with power unplugged) to access.
