    how can i fix my maytag washer pavt244aww while spinning it maks a loud grinding sound and i smell wires burning whats up should i bye a new washer

  • Anonymous Mar 19, 2009

    My washer just started making a disturbing sound during the agitation cycle. It's a constant noise, and sounds pretty bad, although the machine still funcitons at this point.

    The machine is about 3.5 years old, so I'm trying to decide what to do with it. Any ideas about what it might take to fix this?

    Thanks!

Sounds like the motor is going bad. It will only get louder before it finally stops. There is a device that assists the agitation motion that may be bad or is going bad.

Kenmore 90 plus series washer won't spin, barely agitates, will drain - but makes loud noise


It sounds like the transmission is done. Can't pinpoint what it is exactly, but I would start there.

Maytag washer will not agitate. model pavt244aww


TURN THE PULLEY ON THE BOTTOM. ONE DIRECTION WILL CAUSE THE PULLEY TO TRAVEL UP AND RELEASE THE BRAKE, CAUSING THE TUB TO SPIN. TURN IT THE OTHER WAY AND THAT SHOULD BE YOUR AGITATION. YOU SHOULD HEAR THE TRANSMISSION CLUNK AS THE GEARING CHANGES DIRECTION TO GE THE AGITATION ARC. IF NO NOISE IS HEARD, YOU HAVE AN INTERNAL PROBLEM WITH THE TRANSMISSION.

My Capacity Plus Admiral Washer will spin and agitate, but it makes a loud grinding noise.


Well, Sounds to me like the Bearings are going out, but it could make that noise a good while, before it goes completely out.. Replacement would possably be more cost effective, Kinda hard to beleive !!!!!!

Agitation issues. Everything else appears/works normally.


I just encountered the same problem. I think the operation of the machine is such that the motor turns one direction for the spin cycle, and the other direction for the agitate cycle. I am replacing my motor, as I think i have a bad winding on the reverse. I will let you know.

Grinding niose from agitator.


If the fill and drain functions correctly, AND the spin cycle works correctly, AND the cycle itself starts and completes correctly, the problem being that the back and forth motion of the agitator starts the loud grinding noise, it will likley be broken gears in the transmission. The single most expensive part in the washing machine.

Loud noise while agitating in wash cycle


If you begin dissassembly from the tub down, you wil come to the transmission with the spindle sticking out of it. If you undo the bendable tabs all around the transmission it comes apart in two halves. Careful, its full of oil. The spindle has a plastic gear bolted to the bottom of it. It meshes with other gears in the tranny. It has sheered teath and is making the noise.
