Question about Maytag MAT13MN Top Load Washer

1 Answer

The washer is making loud squealing noises. I took the front panel off to take a close look and notice the motor is able to be moved back and forth. Is this normal? I tried tightening the mounts and it still moves since the mounts appear to be made of nylon. There is a faint smell of burned rubber and the belt feels loose enough to easily remove by hand.

Set the drive belt over the drum, loosen the motor slightly, because I think you are cross treading the belt. check the belt before fitting to see if there is any damage to the belt. With your hand put the belt on to the drum, back onto the motor, turn very slowly until the belt finds it's own parallel (the grooves line up), then tighten the motor exactly where it is in place. If there is NO damage to the belt, set the machine onto a fast spin, empty. That should tell you it's a belt problem. But you may have to spend 10 bucks on a new belt. Cheaper than a new machine. Hope all goes go well for you, let me know! Dave

FLC271W2 washer squeal during wash cycle


LOUD NOISES IN washing MACHINE;

LOT OF THINGS TO CHECK, THE BELT LOOSE OR WORN, THE CLUTCH, THE TRANNY, THE BEARINGS BOTH TUB SEAL AND BEARING, THE REAR DRUM BEARING,
THE DRIVE PULLEY- If the washer is making a loud noise the drive pulley might be worn out, cracked, loose or bent. Remove the drive pulley and inspect it carefully. If it is damaged or defective replace it.
THE TRANSMISSION, THE MOTOR COUPLER, THE MOTOR DRIVE BEARINGS,
THE DRIVE MOTOR- If the washer is making a loud noise the drive motor bearings may have worn out. Washer motors are normally almost silent when they run. If the motor is run without a belt hooked up to it and it's loud it will have to be replaced.


If the washer is making a loud noise the drain pump might be going bad or might have something caught in it. Remove the drain pump from the washer and inspect it carefully. Look for anything that might be caught in it, a piece of wire, plastic, etc. If nothing is wrong with the pump, but it's still noisy it will have to be replaced.

My front load washer is making a loud noise and think it is the motor, i took the front bottom panel off and the sound was coming from the what looks like motor i guess not sure what to do


Remove the rear panel . remove belt . turn drum pully if you hear any noise it is the rear drum bearing and seal . Reach inside drum from front and lift up on inner drum. If this drum moves up and down or side to side you will also need to replace the inner drum. If turning the drum is silent try turning the motor if it makes a noise replace the motor

Maytag Performa, Noisey spin cycle, now does not work


the belt may be old and stretched/slipping...if it is stretched and slipping it will cause the squealing .............otherwise, check the pulley for the belt/motor to see if it is okay and the motor itself copuld be worn out if the belt looks ok............be careful, you can get zapped if you touch a wire and also if the motor is burned up it can cause a fire so watch carefully and you should be able to see which of these possibilities are the problem..............

During the spin cycle, the machine shakes violently and dances across the floor. It has a loud squealing noise during this. My Performa is only about 14 months old. This is very disappointing for a Maytag.


Look in owners manual. I think these washers have a 1/2 hp. variable speed motor. make sure the washer is level from front to back and side to side, if its not that could be the problem. The motor has a lot of force, the squealing could be a bad bearing not sure.

Dryer makes a loud squeaking/squealing noise while drying.


If the dryer model number begins with 417, the drum is supported by a ball bearing in back, and a seal and glides up front. Often, the bearing will become very dry, either from years of use, or from excessive lint blowing up into the bearing. If the bearing isn't cracked or otherwise noticeably bad, you can usually solve the issue simply by lubing the bearing with a high temp grease. While the machine is apart...(a major pain in the butt), make sure to check the condition of the seal and glides on the front panel, and replace the belt if it looks at all cracked or frayed.
If this dryer is not a 417 and/or does not have a rear bearing, it's best to get a maintainance kit (belt, idler pulley and drum rollers) and install all the aforementioned parts, as they are the most likely source of screech. Also, check the motor by spinning the shaft manually with the belt off....if that is squeeking, it's motor
time.

Squealing noise during spin cycle


The spin cycle activates the fast mode on the motor, squealing normal occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks. Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment, normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the belt.

Terrible scraping noise from drum,what is it?


more likely there is a bra wire caught between the inner drum and outer tub, possibly wrapping itself around the element in the bottom.
