Re: Squelling noise

Check the water pump. Remove the belt and turn the pump by hand in both directions. If there is a problem you will feel the pump try to grab. A lot of times some small objects that get in the washer and end up in the pump and causes everything from clicking noises to full stop.

I have a maytag atlantis washer that will completely fill at the beginning of the cycle, stop, then make a very loud squeeling noise, stop, and now will not advance through any cycle...even manually. We...


The not completly filling and squeeling makes me want to look at the screen on the water valve that the hoses attach to on the rear of the machine for blockage preventing water flow,to me the squeeling is the solonoids on the water valve calling for water yet no water coming in. IF you manually fill the washer using buckets of water/a hose what will happen? perhaps try that!!
Also if you have the "aquaflow flood stop" hoses the internal stopper in the hose is bad,replace hoses using standard hoses

Good luck,i hope this helps you to fix your washer,

It sounds like it may be a bad pump and you will probably need a new belt. I would recommended calling a service tech this is a fairly difficult job to fix and there may be other things going on that you cannot see. Do not attempt to use the machine until it is checked out.If I can do anything else to help please let me know.

I have a Maytag washer that the agitator is not working , I makes a squealing noise, How do I repair this? Thanks

Your problem may be a seized water pump with the motor turning the drive belt on a water pump pulley that is not turning (belt squealing). Or the noise could be originating from a water pump that has a noisy/bad bearing. If the pump pulley is turning and making the noise, you may be able to lubricate the pump shaft with some quality shaft lubicant (no guarantee that the noise will cease)! If other problem, contact an appliance service company.

im guessing this is a performa? if so you may have something cought in your pump. remove the obstruction and check to make sure the pump is free, then replace the belt. the belt should seem a little loose as it needs to slip to get the machine up to speed in the spin

Kenmore washer (model # 110 24872300) won't agitate.

Your machine has no belt. It has a direct drive coupling. The direct drive coupling between the motor and transmission must be replaced.
