    I have a problem with screeching noise when it stops washing or spinning. Maybe related. Machine is also about 3 years old and lightly used. In my opinion it's a piece of junk.

    The squeeling suddenly stopped and has not reqppeared. I suspect that the Solution #1, (object stuck in the water pump) could very well be the solution.



    Thanks for the help.

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.

    keeuqs There is still a possibilty that the pump has been damaged. If the sound comes back, check the pump.

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...


Hello,

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,
Gene

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.

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.

94 nissan maxima se, Squeeling loud when car is started.


Hello,
I can't tell exactly what it is since I cannot hear it, but in most cases it's a belt. Check that first, or have a friend help you - one of you can start the car and the other one can look under a hood to search for the squeeling part.

Check the lid switch. Some units use a safety lock out. If it is not working then the unit will not drain or spin.
