SOURCE: "howling" noise during spin cycle (still there after changing burned off belt)

Travioso, there was two service flashes out on this model concerning the seal and bearing which means they had an issue with this washer. The howling noise you are hearing is the bearing and will need the new designed triple seal and bearing kit. This should be covered under your warranty, I believe it is 5 years. The numbers for the service flashes are TDL-0048A-B. Call Maytag and inquire about these service flashes, these should be covered. Catriver.

SOURCE: Barrel will not spin, sounds like motor is running.

check the p-trap for stuck loose items---change,rocks,etc.. I had the same problem and the technician said the placement of the p-trap causes lots of loose items to get stuck, which causes the washer not to go thru its cycles & won't spin.

SOURCE: Machine locked up. Barrel quit spinning.

first you got to empty washer by manual,get a bowl on to the floor then pull the drain pipe out of the pipe that goes outside or from under the sink,empty washer this way then the door will open,as it wont open as a result of it having water in it,when you have done this make sure you check your motor bushes,im sure that they have worn,just replace them at a cost of £10.00,they are easy to replace.rgrds paul

could be motor not rotating under pressure. When you say brushes have you removed them from motor to check them, also check they slide in and out thier holders ok, as they may be sticking

SOURCE: My washing machine washes through

Hi, well, yes well indeed this is some sort of "Connection" problem, it seems that the center "Drive" and the "Tub" aren't connected as they should be.
If you wish to DIY, then you simply MUST obtain a service manual for your exact make and model. This will show you how to troubleshoot and the steps to take to isolate the problem and repair, also those all important spare parts numbers.
However, based on my experience, most likely the best option and the cheapest in the end, would be to contact your local or head office of your manufacturers, and ask for a referral to an authorised service center and then, ask them to call and give you a "Quote" as to the cost and type of repairs needed and then go from there...

Maytag bravos model mvwx500xw0 will not drain and spin properly


This could be a lot of things. One of them is the belt on the bottom that connects the transmission to the motor, of course it could be the transmission/clutch.

Maytag bravos quiet series 300. When input a load of clothes in it will get loud during spin cycle and now won't finish because codes ul. Sounds loud like a bearing


You are spot on. If there is a lot of movement in the drum (>5mm) then it'ds the drum bearings (big job) but check the motor bearings too as much easier to fix.

Maytag MAV 7000 stopped in rinse cycle with water in tub. When turned on, there is a low buz sound. Was making a louder noise prior to stopping.


RepairClinic.com

The top of the washer lifts up like a car hood after two clips between the top and the front panel are pushed with a putty knife. Once the top is flipped open, the screws that hold the front panel in place at the top can be removed and the panel lifted off. The belt may be bad or something may be stopping the belt like a bad pump. Or the transmission drive pulley and bearing may be going bad. If the bearings above the transmission drive pulley fail the brake will not release correctly in the spin cycle causing weak, slow or no spin. The belt & pulley system can be accessed by tipping the washer back. The belt is routed around all three pulleys under the washer and is fairly loose until the motor starts. It is the torque of the motor that gives the belt tension. Leaking or loud "jet engine" sound in spin indicates a bad main tub seal at the outer tub which has caused the spin bearing to fail. This is a complicated repair as the inner and outer tubs need to be removed from the washer to access and replace the seal and bearing components.

Loud noise on spin cycle


How did that answer get an 83% rating? It is absolutely useless. My washer has the exact same problem as described above.During the spin cycle it sounds like a jet engine. It kinda sounds like the belt hitting the drive wheel but may be bearings in the motor.
