Amana lw6123wm spins during the wash cycle

I've heard that this is a common problem and that the brake pads need to be replaced. Anyone know where they are located and/or how to replace them?

Thanks!

Washing machine will not agitate but it spins.


The brakes are shot,so the tub spins in agitate will also cause it to leak part number R0000014 run about $25.
Look straight up from the bottom pulley you will see the brake assy looks kinda like a clutch plate,look around the outer edge of that you'll see the Pads they have two 3/8 inch bolts in each one,to get the new ones in you'll have to use a screw driver to open the plate.

Screeching noise in maytag topload washer


The following link explains the problem you are having with your Maytag:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r387833-maytag_washer_squeaking_problem

It is common for the brakes on Maytag top loaders to wear and make noise, as well, as the snubber. There is a helpful tip that you can try to quieten the noise if it is the snubber. DO NOT oil it, or lubricate with any petroleum based products! This will ruin the unit and actually make the problem worse. NOTE: If the snubber is excessively worn, it was also cause vibration on the spin cycle.

If the brakes are worn, however, you can put a light film of oil on the brake pad. It is common for the pad to collect moisture in humid and damp climates and start to squeak against the brake stator. The brake pad consists of a rotor with a leather edge (pad). The leather can absorb moisture and begin to squeak against the brake stator. Oiling it slightly will get rid of the noise.

Confused? If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information useful.

NOTE: There is a follow-up comment at the bottom of the link I provided from another user. The method this person used to release the tension on the brake can save you from having to purchase the brake release tool.

NAV6800AWW - noisy


hi there,

Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping/or sound
during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and
redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Noisey during wash cycle


sounds as if your brake pads have broken, try removing the lower acess panel you should see the broken pads lying somewhere under the machine(at least pieces of them), i bet if you spinn the machine the drum doesnt come to a complete sudden stop after lifting the top( it should if the brakes are engaging

Spinning during all cycle


depending on how handy you are, replacement of the brake pads can be a real pain. As an experienced technician I specialized in Amana/Speed Queen for a while. I recommend you call a service man to replace the brakes. Its worth your while and your fingers.
