Question about Maytag MAV7200 Top Load Washer

Loud noise -- water pump??

Maytag mav7257 aww. It started smelling like burnt rubber then shut down and wouldn't come back on. I waited a couple of hours and now it runs ok but there's a loud grinding noise. I checked the belt and although it's still intact I can see where it was burning. I turned it on without the belt and the motor ran without any noise. I turned the pulley for the water pump by hand (without the belt on) and it sounds awful noise and turns like it's grinding. It also catches sometimes and I have to give it a good turn to free it. I think I need another water pump. What say you? Also how much does one cost?

Yes you definately need a new pump assembly part number 21001906 $59.95. That is a maytag part number and it is a very common repair. The new pump is a revised design and will look different but will mount the same. Axcess through front panel.

Washer stopped at begin of wash cycle

The problem seems to lie in the rubber backed mat. If the rubber has begun to peel of the mat it often-times get stuck in the drain pump. The best thing to do at this point is to disconnect the electrical cord, open up the machine, drain out the water as best as possible disconnect the power cord to the drain and the hoses. Clean out the drain pump. reassemble. You should be good to go., Unless the drain pump is burned out (left running plugged up too long) if thats the case, replacement of the pump may be neccessary.... Hope this helps...Good luck!....

Washing machine was making noise when agitating & spinning

This sure sounds like a bad transmission. Turn the transmission by hand to feel and listen to it. It should be smooth and quiet.

The washing machine will do this if the load is unbalanced. Usually due to either an excessively heavy and/or large load. The burning rubber smell is just the drive belt dealing with the imbalance. Often the washing machine will self-balance itself, but it's a good idea to open the lid and re-distribute the load. Or remove some stuff if it seems too heavy.
