Question about Maytag MAV3855A Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Machine only about 2-3 years old and just started making "whirring sound". Took front cover off to see and get a better listen. Can't tell if it is the belt or some kind of a bearing below the tub.

Tilt the washer back and take the belt off. Turn the drain pump pulley and you will probably find the drain pump bearing is bad. You will need to replace the pump. Check your belt also it may need to be replaced from the extra wear from the bearing failing. This is the most likely cause of the whiring.

Whirlpool Cabrio Dryer MOD WED5600XW0 making whirring noise


take the bottom panel off,you'll see a metal duct that the lint filter slides down into,there's a blower wheel behind the duct,if the wheel cracks or gets loose where it connects to the motor shaft it can make this sound,start the dryer and listen to see if the noise comes from there.if you can't tell unplug the dryer,pull out the lint filter and then take out the screws that hold the metal duct in place and remove it,now you can see the blower wheel,spin the drum by hand and see if the blower wheel moves with the drum and belt.if it looks fine stop spinning it and grab the wheel and see if it feels loose,if it is you will be able to tell.also while you have the duct off clean it out,you should take it off at least once a year and clean it out,then vac out the cabinet and blow out your vent line with a leaf blower if it's long,just remove it from the back of the dryer,stick a leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out.go outside first and make sure the outside duct is clear,no cage or anything that will block the lint from blowing outside.if the blower wheel is ok then the noise could be the belt roller or belt pulley,thety sell a kit with all the parts together but usually when someone says it's making a whirring sound it most likely is the blower wheel.hope this helps.

Is the fuel pump a common part to fail on these cars


Having a fuel pump fail is common on any car over 10 years old. A simple test you can do is to turn the key to on, but not to start. You should hear the whir of the fuel pump run for 2 seconds. A second test can be to bump the starter and listen for the 2 second whir again. If you are unsure if you are hearing the whir have someone listen at filler neck, with the gas cap off. If you can't hear anything, the fuel pump isn't running.

The washing machine makes a high-pitched squeking


No, not if the noise is only when rinsing, if it makes the noise when spinning generally then possibly but if only noisy when rinsing sounds like a filter blockage on the waste pipe. clean out the filter behind the flap on the bottom of the front panel

Cloth too wet when washing cycle complete


When a front load washer is not spinning properly (it is very, very hard to overload a properly operating front load washing machine) you have a problem that can not be solved easily. Besides making sure the washer is level and stable (no rocking on its feet), changing the controls on the front or making other adjustments will not fix it.

It will require a service technician to take a close look at it, open up the washer and possibly even listening to the machine as it washes, drains and (attempts to) spin.

I hope this information is helpful. I wish I had better news or more guidance.
