Bobby pin stuck in washing machine - high pitch noise during spin

I know it's this problem because i paid 150 bucks to find out last time. the guy came and took off the front of the machine undid the tubing and pulled a couple bobby pins out. I'd like to try it myself but i can't figure out how to get the front of the machine off. i can open the top but the front seems to be screwed in several places and i don't even know how to get to some of the screws. is there an easier way. my machine is a maytag atlantis.

I just had this exact issue and was able to solve it myself. I thought I was in for a $300-400 fix. It sounded like the bearings or transmission was going out it was so loud.

My first clue was from the bobby pins **** in the stainless wash tub. The first thing I would do is put a 2x4 underneath the front to prop it up and pull the belt off. Spin the three wheels down there and see if they're all smooth. In my case the water pump did not spin smooth, something was wrong.

To get to the water pump, you need to take a putty knife to push the clips in the top, one on either side and the whole top will prop open. Next there are two bolts you need to unscrew and the front will slide out. The water pump will be on the front right. You need to take a large plyers or vice grips and squeeze the clamps to pull the two hoses off (keep a towel handy because there's probably water in them yet too). Pull the hoses off and now you should be able to have access to the 3 x 10mm bolts the hold on the water pump. Pull the pump out and inspect that there isn't any thing obstructing the impeller blades. In my case two bobby pins were wedged in there making the racket. I was able to take a real long needle nose plyers and pull them out.

Putting it all back together is reverse of what is above.

Whew! thought I was going to be out some bucks for the repair tech coming out! Hopefully someone else finds this usefull!

Once you open the top, push the tub back and there are two small screws on top. The front will then fold out and lift off.

It drains very slowly and it makes a high pitch sound when it does spin...sometimes you hear something tapping or slapping, likesomething is stuck.


To me it sounds like you have something stuck in your pump. I would check that first. I had the high pitched sound during the spin cycle on my machine and it turned out to be the drum bearings. That part used to be covered by a 10 year warranty but not anymore. My machine was less than ten years old and it cost me around 300.00 to fix it. I have paid for my machine 3 times over in repairs. My next washer will NOT be HE and probably an old school Speed Queen

I have had water leaking from underneath my dishwasher and have found that on filling, water overflows top of the water inlet unit


My Miele 828 dishwasher started to leak at the front left corner. The leak became worse. I tipped the machine on its side and removed the rubber moulding connecting the base of the drum to the pump. I cleaned it out and refitted it finding two small coins inside. The leak persisted. I took off the top of the machine by unscrewing the two screws on either side and pushing the lid backwards. I switched the machine on and, with a torch could see that the detergent dispenser had detached from the delivery pipe under it. Using advice elsewhere on Fixya I undid the three bolts around the door and the three screws around the detergent dispenser; one is deeply recessed and easily missed. Than I unclipped the drain pipe behind the little door at the bottom left hand corner at the front. The front then hinges out from the left with hinges at the right side making the leaking connection easily accessible. Make sure you get the rubber flange well up the plastic tube as there is no flange on the tube to secure it. A possible design fault but the unit has functioned for ten years before the connection failed.

If your truck is old enough, it could be what is called grandfathered in, meaning it doesn't have to pass emitions. Try getting a 2nd opinion.

The machine showed error code E 20. It just shut off and made a beeping noise during a load we were washing. The lights work but the machine just buzzes when turned on.


Mine was too doing the same thing every now and then it would work depending if i changed the cycles around. I finnally pulled it out to where i could work on it. pulled off the back plate bottom was still partly full of water so tiped it on its side. undid the black hose going from the bottom of the drum. Undid the screw that tightens the clamp this is the fatter part of the black hose , inside this hose is a tube u can slip out it was right full, im gussing it was the filter. Put it back together and works fine now.

Error code 0e


Hi, it is the pressure switch aka water level sensor. OE is overflow error. Pressure switch is located under top cover on front right hand side. It is round and has a rubber tube leading down to the drum and a electrical connection to the board. Paid maytag man to diagnose/install cost me about $150.

There is a recall on the circuit board for certain Maytag Neptune washers. See the link below:

Carb fuel tee is leaking


when mine leaked on my 87 cbr, i just went to a salvage yard looked at three sets of carb banks, i asked the guy were they all off of working bikes at the time and he said yes, so i picked the best of the bunch took it home and took the bowls out there was a lot of varnish in it and spray cleaned everything else up, and i also readjusted the pilot screws because when i took those out they were really dirty. i gave it a 1/4 turn more than factory and boy it runs great now. $200 bucks and about 5 hours to install..the reason it took so long is not hooking up the throttle cables its getting the carbs into those old harddened rubber manifold tube.

LG front leader washing machine;high pitch vibration during spin, the house is vibrating with it, we can feel it at the other end of the house, any fix?


You can buy rubber pads at the home center that damper the vibrations.
The high pitch noise could be an object stuck between tubs.

High pitched buzz/whine during wash cycle only, spin fine


1) Make sure valve is open all the way 2) some machines have a screen inside of the hose hook up which could be clogged. 3) last check to see if it is the hot or cold by switch your selector switch on your machine to hot then cold. If one of these positions eliminate the noise then the valve in the machine is bad.
