Question about Washing Machines
The spin brake is slipping during agitation, causing a squeaking noise. the brake assy is the cause of the squeak.the cost of this part is near to $40 and you can get it from
This problem is normally attributed to a combination of two things: A worn out snubber ring, and a worn brake assembly.
The snubber ring assembly is a white teflon ring that sits under the wash tub at the base (called the milk stool, because it looks like an upside down milk stool). The entire wash tub assembly will rest on the snubber as it helps get rid of vibration while the tub agitates and spins. When the snubber starts to wear down, you will notice an increase in tub vibration during the spin cycle and it will sometimes begin to squeak. NOTE: YOU CANNOT OIL THE SNUBBER! DOING SO CAN CAUSE MORE DAMAGE.
The brake assembly is mounted between the pulley wheel and transmission under the washer. As the brake assembly ages, the pad (which is mounted along the rim of a metal disc) begins to glaze over. As it glazes, it will also squeak and cause the sudden "slamming" to a stop. The glazing, coupled with humidity in the air can make this condition worse.
this problem occur normally with this model washer and can be attributed to normal wear and tear. I recommend replacing the brake assembly and snubber at the same time. You will need, however, a special Maytag brake removal tool and spring removal tool if you decide to attempt this repair yourself other wise a local repair technician is adsvisable.
