Question about Maytag Ensignia 3.3 cu. ft. Top Load Washer

Burning smell/noise with my Maytag Ensignia MAV7657EWQ Washer

My washer has started (not all the time) to pause after filling (never did that before). Now during that pause there is also a loud "buzzing" noise. Then the cycle starts and there is a burning smell. It does go through the whole cycle. The buzzing and the burning smell doesn't happen all the time but the pause between filling and starting the cycle is now every load. Can anyone help me pin-point the problem? Any suggestions on repairs for do it yourself-ers? Thank you!

My washing machine is incredibly loud when filling.The water coming in sounds like a jet engine.


Try closing the water valves a little at a time until it is quite enough for you. Do not close it completely.

When i close lid it just makes humming noise and wont start


If washer hums but doesn't fill, water isn't getting to washer check screens where fill hoses connect to washer. Screens may be blocked. If washer fills then hums check to make sure belt is on. Tip machine up to view belt underneath.

You need to observe and check after disconnecting the power , touch the motor, the element area or the control panel or the valves/pump.
If you notice any heat on these , it can be the culprit.
You can proceed to remove the suspected part to discover what was the reason for the burning rubber smell.

Maytag ensignia top load washer will not fill with water at start of the cycle?


The drain hose has to be at least 30 inches above the floor or gravity will drain the machine. Also: If the water hose is jammed into the drain a siphoning affect will occur in some instances.

I have a Maytag A183 top loading washing machine. It recently starting making a loud buzzing noise when you first pull out the knob to start it. If you turn it off and on a couple of times, the sounds...


That loud buzzing noise is your water fill valve. First turn off the water valves to the washer and unscrew the hoses and check that the filters are not corroded or clogged. I had a maytag washer that was doing the same thing and finally the lid switch and timer had to be replaced. I would unplug the washer and remove the screws along the upper rear cover behind the timer assembly and check that all connections are secure. Unplug them then plug back in if neccessary. Then put the cover back on plug back in and try it.

If it still does it you might need the water valve replaced.

My GLTF 2940 makes a buzzing sound like a relay not pulling in all the way, during the rinse cycle. If you shut off the washer, and restart it on the rinse only cycle, it goes away.


its probably your cold water rinse only valves solenoid thats loose on the structure or the coil itself is loose,you may not hear it all the time especially during the initial wash start fill,try this, set the washer for cold water fill only on the washer,but turn off the water valves that supply water and start your machine to a wash cycle as normal,try this and see if it dry buzzes(without water),then try the same on the hot side,then with the water still off open up the machine and you can localize the buzzing noise

Maytag ensignia electric dryer makes alot if


I had a squirrel(?) stuck in mine! I removed the lint pipe and it was really nasty. Something had chewed through the screen and climbed down the pipe to stay warm?? We live in Minnesota and it was cold as heck. Anyway, Have a shop vac ready, I hope this helps. Remove pipe at the dryer, push start a couple of times and see if anything blows out. K.J.
