Question about Washing Machines
My maytag PAV2300AWW is really noisy on spin cycle.
If you are talking about a loud sqeaking noise, this is usually attributed to a worn snubber ring and/or brake assembly. You cannot lubricate the snubber to get rid of the noise. In fact, you may damage the washer if you do. A small amount of corn starch can be sprinkled under the bottom tub support where the snubber ring is to get rid of most noise related problems (this will be the bottom round plate where it meets the casing of the machine). However, if the snubber is worn too much, or if the brake assembly is worn they must be replaced. I would recommend replacing the following parts:
Brake Stator: 1057484 Price: $7.45
Brake Rotor and Lining: 1032674 Price: $16.70
Snubber: 1055142 Price: $4.35
Brake Removal Kit: 997909 Price: $99.40*
*Brake removal tool is required in order to remove the brake assembly and/or to replace the snubber. There is a 200lbs spring located under the Brake Stator that must be compressed PRIOR to removal or you could cause injury to yourself.
You can find all your parts and information at repairclinic.com. I am not affiliated with the website. I am merely recommending them because I have used their service before. Plus, they use the same repair parts as your major appliance repair companies, but at a lower cost.
The parts required to make the repairs aren't very expensive, but the tool required to do it IS. Also, if you've never worked on this type of washer before, this is not a job that I would recommended to the average do-it-yourselfer. Maytag is real good abpout providing the necessary instructions with their parts, but this is a bit involved.
Post back with comments and let me know if this helps you.

Every time I use my washing machine I see some white stuff on my black clothes. I even got a new washing machine but the problem is still there. Today I washed my clothes and all the black clothes had some white stuff on it so I had to rewash is by hand. What can I do for that?

The best thing you can do is just to toss the washer out the door and buy a new one. I think this machine would be around ten years old, or is this a very brand new one?
If it is old, get a new front loader washer, they are cheaper in usage, water and hydro, and your wash will get claener with smaller amounts of washing powder.
