    The squeaking noise only happens on the wash cycle, not on the rinse or spin

  • tirebill Feb 08, 2008

    The washer also makes a intermittent squeaking noise on the wash cycle. I agree the squeaking noise only happens on the wash cycle, not on the rinse or spin. (This was posted by dpgdc on Feb 08, 2008).

    I have the exact same situation. I don't belive it's a leveling problem.

    I also have this problem and it is level as it should be. it squeeks when the

    washer reverses directions not normal

    our Maytag Neptune had those same squeeks, just before the circuit blew and we had to spend 400 dollars to get it running again.  Now it works, but still squeeks!!

Your machine may be out of balance. It could be that your loads are not well dispersed (such as mixing a load of socks with a bedspread...). Or it could be that your machine is not level on the floor it is sitting on. Sometimes that will be an issue. I have had squeaking sounds before and those helped me, that said, I also tried to find your manual and look in the "trouble shooting" section, but the link was broken.

I hope this helped at least a little!

MAV-3 top load washer makes loud squeaky noise during the wash cycle.


Is it a constant squeak or does it go squeak-squeak - squeak as it agitates? It is a squeak that is intermittant then usually your brake is losing its hold. You will need a technician to do this job. It requires special tools that they should have. I repeat a technician should do this job. You can seriously hurt yourself attempting this repair. Also see if the inner tup is turning as it agitates, if it is then it i definately the brake. But one more time do not try this repair it is a dangerous repair that should be left to technicians. There is a spring that is under heavy compression that requires a tool to release it.

There is 2 possible problems. 1. Pump will make noise as soon as the drain and spin starts. 2. Rear bearing this noise usually starts later in cycle as the drum gets up to final speed. The rear bearing of coarse is the most expensive of the two as it is part of the outer tub.

Extremely loud noise during spin cycle of my Neptune dryer--just started happening in the last month. The dryer is probably 7-8 years old, so it's not the newer Neptune model.

My machine make too much noise


does it sound like a 747 about to crash in your house? if so you might as well through your washer away because you have a bad bearing and the cost to repair that is about the same for a new one. let me know if this helps

My MAH 5500B washer has a squeak when fully loaded at the start of rotation in both directions.


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

if still the problem then ,Motor is kicking on and off making that noise....so far for us this has been a motor issue 9.5 times out of 10.
