Question about Maytag MAH2400A Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Squeaky, noisy washing machine

My front-loading washing machine is making some nasty squeaking (and slight grinding) noises whenever it starts to spin. Does something need to be oiled? Is this a belt problem? Do I need to call a repairman? And my washer will soon break if I do not? I'm pretty handy, but not very familiar with washing machines, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I found something online that suggested that this might be a belt problem. If so, how do I change the belts on a front-loading Maytag model? Should I just call a repairperson? Help! I've got two young kids and don't want them to be wearing dirty clothes if the washer goes kaput!

Belts are an easy change. You access from the back of the machine. 3 or 4 screws take off the plate whihc will expose the belt. BE SURE TO UNPLUG 1st! so you don't get scocked

The machine won't pump water or spin and makes nasty noise. When I turn the drum by hand there is no noise and feels normal.

Squeaking/grinding/rattle noise during wash and spin


That sounds like a clutch problem - probably just worn and need replacement. Will definitely need to pull to find exact fault.

Does it sound like a bearing noise or more a grinding noise. Could something maybe be stuck in the drain pump. When does it actually make the noise?

Grinding noise when drum rotates


may be a foreign object trapped in between the inner and outer tub. Major Disassembly required to split the outer tub. May also be the rear bearing in which case back half will have to be replaced.
