Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV7000
My Maytag MAV7000 was washing clothes when it made screeching sounds, then it died. I had to remove the clothes and bail out the water. It gave off a burning rubber smell so I unplugged it. I checked underneath the unit and the belt looks great. I think it's the motor. What do u think? How can I remove the front panel to check the motor? There are no screws infront but I do see clips underneath. Thanks Linda
The usual "screeching noise" in these washers is most often from the pump. Tilt the machine up so you can get the belt off (no tools required) and then turn all three of the pulleys. The center pulley is the transmission, the movable one is the motor and the last one is the pump. You will probably be able to feel or hear the noise and take appropriate actions. Good luck. AJ
