Washer motor makes lots of noise as its trying to spin. Hardly spins at all with wet load. Spins slowly and still makes noise when spinning with drum empty. Does this mean the motor is bad or is it the...

If it is a really loud noise that drives you out of the house then probably a bad bearing. If that is the case then time for a new machine. Also check for something caught between the tubs.

As soon as we turn on the dryer it's really loud and vibrates a ton. It just started one day


First make sure that its properly balanced, if the issue remains then it is due to the belt that is bad and its time for belt replacement. Usually loud noise comes when the belt is either worn out or broke. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I've got a Maytag model LD9206. It makes a lot of noise when it first starts up, but the noise goes away. The noise is a loud squeak which I believe is probably related to the belt or pullys. How do I...

My Maytag Atlantis Gas Dryer makes a loud noise when it is running. It works fine except for the noise. I have had the dryer about 5 yrs and this noise just started several days ago.

is it a high pitch noise. Like a noise that sounds similar to a old freddy cruger movie when the little girl on the tricycle passing by. If it sounds like that, then maybe you idler pully needs to be oiled..the idler pully is what keeps tension on the belt and lets the belt rotate smoothly. just like a pully. That maybe needs to be oiled..try doing that and see that works.

Maytag Performa PAV2300AWW screaching noise, belt problem, pulley broke

My Maytag Performa was making the loud squealing noise. I changed out the water pump/bearing, took care of the problem.
Putting a new belt on just help burn up the bearing (they needed replacing) and probably ruined the new belt. Probably seized the water pump bearing and the belt jumped and broke the motor pully. A washing machine motor is very strong, when that h20 pump bearing seized (or possibly some bearings jamed up) the motor kept on turning that belt and the plastic pully gave in. You'll need to replace that also. If the h20 pumb bearing is turning freely, likely the bearings jammed up but or now loose. That bearing should be tight, no slack or play in it. You can probably wobble the pully on it all around while turning it. The slightest slack is too much.

i wold first look to something in the drier drum glides not letting it turn easy enough in my opinion the pully its self is not your culpretits its doing its job real well or it wouldnt be squeeling something is stopping the drum from turning with the drier off check it by turning it by hand feel the resistance thats where the promblem is something jamming your drum

The water pump may be going bad...Yes it probably is a bearing. Take the belt loose and try turning each pully until you find one that makes noise or is hard to turn. Pump and motor should both spin very easily with out noise.
