Question about Maytag MAH2400A Front Load Washer
My machine started to make a horrible grinding noise when trying to execute the spin cycle.
Also, when my machine tries to empty it makes very loud sucking and gurgling noises. The machine started making this noise first, then started grinding on the spin cycle after that. I've read the solution to the problem of noises when the machine tries to empty water and it sounds like the hoses may be blocked by coins or something else. I'll give it a try.
It makes me wonder whether the two noise problems stem from the same problem - coins gumming up the works maybe. Can anyone tell me if there is anything in common here? Possibly getting some foreign object stuck in the machine that affects both draining and spinning. Could it be that coins were blocking the draining and then moved to another area that would cause the grinding noise when trying to spin? Thanks for any help!
It is probably the same problem because it is trying to drain during the spin cycle. My machine sounded as though a chain wis clanking, the solution was removing a coin caught in the drain pump. Access the pump from the bottom of the machine. 4 screws hold the mounting bracket on undo those, the electrical connection and two hose to the pump. Undo three screws holding impeller to motor and coin can fall out. Examine for damage if it is not too tore up, put back together. Keep in mind that when you unclamp the hoses that water will come out.
