    admiral washer starts to fill with water and then stops with a humming sound. Our basement had flooded somewhat, prior to this occuring. Could you help with fixing this? It fills with water and then will not drain or begin agitating. thanks

Pump or bearing problem?

If this is a top load maytag, the pump bearing sleeve will rub the pump pulley and make a grinding noise. Replace the pump.

Grinding noise during rinse cycles

This is what I would recommend doing. With the machine empty of water and clothes, and someone nearby to help, follow these steps.
1) Unplug the machine
2) Pull the machine away from the wall a good bit.
3) Lean the machine back, enough where you can lay down in front of it and have room to get underneath a little ways.Have the person standing by to hold the machine that way it doesn't have any possibility of falling on you.
4) With tha machine back, you can now see the three pulleys underneath, transmission ( located in the center, the biggest one), The motor ( located in the front right) and the pump located in the back.
5) Take the belt off by rolling it off.
6) Once you have the belt off turn each pulley. There should be minimum resistance when doing so. You may feel a little tug from the transmission pulley, but not from the motor and pump pulleys
I'm willing to bet the pump grinds or is hard to spin. If any of them pulleys are hard to turn, grind or anything like that the part is bad

We have a Maytag washing machine, model #HAV2460AWW, rev.10, serial #10359656CR. Just recently it started making a grinding noise that reminds me of a piece of wood jumping up and down against a bandsaw...

we just had the same problem and it was the bearing on the bottom of the pump, then it seized and we could possibly have to replace the motor to because of the load the bad pump put on it, I wish you luck with yours.

Need to replace the main belt on the bottom of the washer. The belt goes around the drive pulley directly below the electric motor which is accessible from the front bottom access panel. The belt goes...

Unplug the motor wiring, remove the bolts holding the motor bracket (4 I think) remove the hoses from the pump and lift the motor and pump out. Remove the 3 screws on the pump and separate from the motor. Put the belt on the pulley and replace the pump. Slide the motor and pump back in with the belt attached, but don't put the 4 bolts on until you put the belt over the tub pulley. Then put them in and plug the wiring back onto the motor. That should do it!

Washer wont spin

You may have some small piece of clothing stuck in the water pump. Pull clothes out, empty water out, turn over and remove pump and check for obstructions. If nothing in there see if it is frozen from moving, if not belt may be loose by being streched. Replace belt if needed.

Washing Machine staring making a grinding noise now it broken!

No, not the motor. The pump has a steel sleeve that has come up out of the pulley and has locked down the pump. Replace the pump and you will be fine.

Makes gringing noise when agitating does nat spin


The unit grinds and doesn't spin right ? Does it drain all the water out ?

The reason I ask about the spin is this. If hypothetically the pump had stones in it, or the bearings were worn, it would be grinding while washing (since it turns continuously, but only drains when the motor reverses) and could prevent the unit from draining sufficiently and hence, it will not spin.

**Unplug the unit from the wall**

Check the pump for obstructions, or worn bearing in the pump, you can check the pump fairly easy with the aid of a trouble light/flashlight on those, as the housing is usually transparent.

Remove the belt at the bottom. Lean the machine back against a wall or have someone steady it for you to do this. examine the pump pulley, it's the one in the rear right corner, when observing from the front. Turn it by hand and get a "feel" for if it's loose, grinding, or generally hard to turn. If you see the obstruction, pull off a hose from either the back access panel or remove the front panel, (the rear is easiest, the front gives more room) and remove the article/debris.

If that isn't the issue, let me know and we can follow up from there.

Good Luck

Makes grinding sound during wash cycle

Everything that grinds is saying.........stop using me and find out whats wrong before you use me again.

Could be gearbox or something stuck inside the machine.

Maytag washer makes loud grinding noise during the spin cycle

if it's making a noise then either your drain pump bearing is going out or your thrust bearing is going out (assuming the noise happens in both spin and wash). Tip the washer backwards so that you can get underneath of it. Take the belt off and spin the pump pulley on the right side. This should spin effortlessly.

The middle pulley is the trustbearing pulley. Spin this--- one direction it should have a little bit of resistance--- the other should have more resistance
