Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6000 Top Load Washer
Makes a loud squeak every time it stops spinning?
The loud squeak at the end of the spin cycle 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). A worn snubber will also cause some vibration or out of balance problems. The brake tends to glaze over after it has become worn and will squeak or cause sudden jerking (causing movement of the washer) went the spin cycle stops. 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. NOTE: There should be a warning label explaining this
You can find all your parts and information at repairclinic.com. Just type in your model number in the search menu.
The parts required to make the repairs aren't very expensive, but the tool required to do it can be a bit pricey. 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 about providing the necessary instructions with their parts, however.
In summary this job involves the following steps:
1. Removal of the front case to access the washer interior.
2. Removal of the drive belt and pulley from underneath the washer.
3. Removal of the drain hoses from the wash tub.
4. I usually remove the entire wash tub with transmission still installed at this point and place it upside down outside the washer for ease of accessing everything. (There are other methods, but I find this one easier).
5. This is where the brake compression tool will be required to remove the brake rotor, stator and snubber ring.
Now, I am summarizing this job quite a bit. If this is something you wish to try to repair yourself, and you need more instructions, let me know. I hope this helps you.
