MAyatg MAV7600 BGN Top Load Washer Problem

When the spin cycle starts we hear a screeching sound coming from the machine.  My repairman said I need to replace the pump. After reading this forum, I see that answers to this problem were varied. Is replacing the pump the solution?  If so, where can I buy this part?  Also, is the machine safe to use?

Re: MAyatg MAV7600 BGN Top Load Washer Problem

The screeching sound could be the drain pump or something stuck between the bowls. Try turning the inner bowl by hand and listen for the noise. There should be a position on the timer, just before the spin, that allows the machine to drain before it starts to spin. Try to find the right spot and listen for the noise when only the drain pump is running. Good Luck.

Screeching noise after water starts going in

Hi just read your posting.Now put the machine to a spin cycle and push start,Does the noise happen in this cycle? If the noise doesn't happen then try a cold water fill but turn the hot tap off first.If the noise still doesn't happen then try a hot water fill but turn the cold water off first. This noise sounds like one of your water valves is faulty.Please reply with additional information on the questions and I am sure we can rectify this fault.

The washing machine started making a grinding noise during wash cycle (minor) and a much louder grinding noise during the spin cycle. Is this a bearing? and is it replacable? Maytag MAV7600

sounds like a bearing... although it could be the water pump... water pump is an easy fix... bearing is not an easy fix... take the belt off the bottom of the pump (under the machine) and see if it spins freely by turning it w/ your hand... or if it seems really stiff... if it looks good then it's def. your bearing...

sounds like the carbon brushes need replacing in the motor, they can cause a screeching sound as they wear down.

I have a maytag top load washer model number MAV7757AWQ. It will not spin out ( water just sits ), until I manually move the timer to the spin cycle and restart. Is my timer bad ?

based on your description..the motor for the timer sounds like it is bad or one of the wires powering it came free of the motor terminal.. Does the dial spin after you start any wash setting? If not then I'd say your timer needs replacing.. Hope that helps

Maytag MAV7600 - loud noise on spin cycle

It's more likely something caught in the pump or bad pump. Remove the belt under the machine and check the pump pulley for noise.

Wont complete final spin and drain

Ok you need another repair man this is a simple timer problem since you said dial I take it as timer machine if so it has a dead spot in that cycle. although if it is a electronic control replace the control board and this will be the cure good luck and Merry Christmas

Won't agitate

well, you might have to get a new washer. It sounds like the control circut is going out and the door switch is also gone. it would cost about the same as a new washer. sorry.
