Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

My brand new Maxima X Maytag washer which was professionally installed makes several different disturbing noises which I am not sure are normal. The spin cycle squeaks loudly as if rubber is impeding the rotation. A fast spin has clicks and clacks as if there are marbles in the drum with the clothes. The motor when shifting from one procedure to the next is noisy and sounds labored. Are these normal sounds? It's hard to believe are new washer would have such loud and alarming noises. Thanks for the help.

SOURCE: Loud Noise - Spin Cycle

If the washer is making a squealing noise, the problem is more likely to be the basket drive. If it is more like a rattling sound, the centerpost bearings are probably worn out. Open machine's rear panel and spin the basket manually by turning the drive pulley, to find out from where exactly the noise come from. Defective part should be replaced. Good luck !!

SOURCE: Loud Noise - Spin Cycle

It sounds like the bearings are going bad. Try spinning the drum with your hand while it is empty. It should spin nice and smooth. If the rotation feels a little rough and noisy, you might have a problem. You can double check by taking the drive belt off and try shaking the pulley. If there is "play" when shaking the pulley, the bearings are most likely toast. The inner stainless drum rides on two bearings which sit in the rear of the outer plastic drum. The whole plastic drum and bearings come as one piece and go for $150. It would cost about the price of a new maching to have someone come out and repair it for you. It sounds like kenmore has had a bearing problem which is pretty rediculous considering how much these things cost. Sears said, "those tend to go in a few years", which is criminal especially since the warrenty is usually conveniently exopired by the time this problem happens. If you are handy, have a spare day, and can remember how to put a washing machine back together, go for it. I did it and it was not a fun time. There is a lot of sharp metal edges in the machine so wear gloves. good luck

Samsung front load washer, jerks and makes noise when it first starts spinningthen it smooths out, and works fine.


on many machines that is normal, the shaking continues until the load is distributed relative evenly around the spinning drum. It is also possible it is the main bearing but I am not sure. The noise I am talking about would have been there since new. These links may help. Washer has noise during spin cycle Whirlpool Maytag Sears GHW9100LW1 Washer is Making Loud Noise

I have a brand new Maytag Bravos MCT top loaded washer. It makes a squeaky noise when agitator is cleaning. The squeak is getting louder and I've probably only used the washer a dozen times. We checked...


I had this one come up on a washer I had professionally installed for a client. When I looked into it I found there were shipping blocks made of squeaky Styrofoam the installers left in place. Only made the noise when it was full of water and working hard shifting back and forth in agitation. It said right in installation instructions to take the shipping blocks out too.

I have a Maytag Quiet Series 200. In the beginning of the cycle, it makes a weird 'whirrrring' noise that goes away right after the first wash cycle. It's getting water. It's very noticable and I worry...


I have a quiet series 300 and it does that, too. I think it just balances the load before washing and is normal. I found this in the manual:

I have an MDB760 dishwahser making a lot of noise


The pump is not turned on when the what is sloshed around. It is the wash motor which turns the arms around. It is likely something is stuck under the washer arms or the washer motor bearing is faulty.

If the dishwasher is only about 2 years old, I would suggest you call Maytag for warranty service. Depending on the part they will have different warranty time period. Normally 2 years should be a general policy .

I have a maytag washier and it is working but it makes a lot of noise -it sounds like jam Model number is MAV2755AWW Serial number is 27422854JT


Your Maytag washer may vibrate or make some noise during normal operation. If vibration and noise are excessive, however, you'll need to troubleshoot the problem. The two main reasons for such an issue are overloading and nonlevel installation. Overloading can be corrected by putting less clothing into the washer before you run a cycle. It can be corrected mid-cycle by removing clothing articles from the washer mid-cycle. It's also very important that you make sure that your washer is located on a firm, completely level surface. Otherwise it may create severe vibration and noise, possibly even enough to damage the machine or nearby items.

Dishwasher won't clean properly anymore.


sounds like the hose is clogged... i used to fix these.
first check to make sure the drain inside of the dishwasher (located on the bottom usually towards the back) does not have food clogging the drain. if there is nothing there than its more than likely a hose underneath the dishwasher. make sure you turn the water off before trying to fix this.
