It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.

SOURCE: My Maytag PAV2300AWW Performa is noisy on spin cycle

If you are talking about a loud sqeaking noise, this is usually attributed to a worn snubber ring and/or brake assembly. You cannot lubricate the snubber to get rid of the noise. In fact, you may damage the washer if you do. A small amount of corn starch can be sprinkled under the bottom tub support where the snubber ring is to get rid of most noise related problems (this will be the bottom round plate where it meets the casing of the machine). However, if the snubber is worn too much, or if the brake assembly is worn they must be replaced. I would recommend replacing the following parts:

Brake Stator: 1057484 Price: $7.45
Brake Rotor and Lining: 1032674 Price: $16.70
Snubber: 1055142 Price: $4.35
Brake Removal Kit: 997909 Price: $99.40*

*Brake removal tool is required in order to remove the brake assembly and/or to replace the snubber. There is a 200lbs spring located under the Brake Stator that must be compressed PRIOR to removal or you could cause injury to yourself.

You can find all your parts and information at repairclinic.com. I am not affiliated with the website. I am merely recommending them because I have used their service before. Plus, they use the same repair parts as your major appliance repair companies, but at a lower cost.

The parts required to make the repairs aren't very expensive, but the tool required to do it IS. Also, if you've never worked on this type of washer before, this is not a job that I would recommended to the average do-it-yourselfer. Maytag is real good abpout providing the necessary instructions with their parts, but this is a bit involved.

Post back with comments and let me know if this helps you.

SOURCE: Washer noisy in spin cycle

It sounds like your drum bearings are about to go. I am not familiar with this model, but I would assume it is pretty much like all other front-loaders. Bearing kits can be purchased for all models but there is a great variance in cost eg. in europe €25-€75. It is also quite a difficult job to undertake for the sunday diy enthusiast as it involves stripping down the machine and removing the drum. If you are going to repair the machine as opposed to replacing it I would strongly advise doing it asap and continued use will cause the bearings to collapse rendering the machine irrepairable. Hope this helps.

I have a Samsung front loader washer wf419aaw/xaa. 2 days ago it started making a loud knocking sound during the spin cycle. The drum also feels loose. I have researched every site I can find but still...


it is best if you engage the services of a technician. While it could be bearings ( I doubt it ) it is most likely something between the wash drum and the outer case that is hitting during spinning. something like a ( from hosier)y wire, bobby pin, button, coin

How can I find out if there is something stuck in the machine. Things still wet after spin.


It could be two problems. Check the hot and cold water inlet valves, it should be completely close at the final spinning cycle. Another thing is water outlet pump it should be run on the spinning cycle. Something might be stuck in the water pump.

Noisy & will not progress to spin cycle


The tub must pump down before it will go into spin cycle. My pump was making rumbling noises and when I took the basket out (simple process) there were a couple of bobby pins stuck in it. (kids) Cleaned it out and checked the flowpath with a wet and dry vacuum on the drain connection. Still makes the noise. There is a small zip lock bag under the control panel that describes the trouble shooting and error codes. It also says how to go through the diagnostics steps. Hope this helps.

I have a bosch maxx 1000 (wfl2000au/30) machine will not spin. pupm impeller was jammed by a bobby pin. i removed the bobby pin. when machine is on spin cycle only the pump opperates. does not spin at all....


If there is no water in washer, and it will not spin, I suggest you remove the motor, and check the brushes.
If they are less than 3 or 4mm long, they need replacing.
Hope this helps.

Maytag model LAT9604AAE; in regurlar cycle stopped


You should be able to rotate the trans pulley in either direction one way is agitate the other is spin,if the trans turns ok try turning the pump.
 If the trans will not turn in one direction,check the holes in the inner tub to make sure there is nothing dropped through any of the holes(nails,screws,bobby pins)
 If the pump won't turn look for similar things stuck inside it,bail or pump the water out before removing hoses..

My bosch wfk2401 front loader is stuck on spin


Hi
There is a door bottom right of the system which has a screw out (by hand) plug.
Remove this and ensure there are no foreign objects such as coins, bobby pins etc stuck.

I have found this to be a problem with the Bosch systems and cost me $150 the first time.

Ensure you have some towels as when you open the plug, water will escape

Wont spin or drain


The drain pump is jammed or clogged up. Remove the filter cover and check for bobby pins, coins or bra wires. If clean, remove drum to pump hose from the pump and check for any foreign matter. Try to turn the pump impeller by hand. It should turn freely. If pump is not free, replace it.
