    My Maytag Performa washing machine also tends to whistle... but only in the wash cycle. It's pretty loud and annoying because I timer-set our laundry for 3 AM! Other than that the baby runs perfectly.

    My Maytag Performa washer model PAVT454EWW ser# 23335475GL has started making a horrible loud noise. The noise is coming from the pulley near the water pump and sounds like something metal is caught behind the pulley next to the water pump. I don't know if the pulley has gone bad or some sort of spacer maybe. I'm not sure all the names of the parts. I read something about the series 22 having noise problems and was wondering if that might be my problem. If so what do I need to do?

    Thank You!!!!

Side ways movement is normal, possible dry bearing seal, try running through on hottest wash, this should resolve the problem. Regards Engineer
