Please, I bought this machine about 3 years ago. Washing for 1 person and light use.
Water leaks into the tub after the machine has turned off.
The machine makes a very loud noise when it spins and sometimes it quits spinning.
I hired a service company to repair the machine and they charged me $91.00 just to troubleshoot and advise me the following:
1. Top and bottom bearings
2. Water Valve
How is this possible when iit is only 3 years old and very little use?
Service Company will charge me another $290.00 to make the the repairs that they feel is needed.
Please advise me.

1) drain hose on back of washer is coming off / splitting / getting loose
2) water pump is leaking (cracked?) or has a gasket that has deteriorated.
3) hose between tub and water pump has come off / split / became loose.
Since your washer isn't able to hold water, it makes it easy to remove the clothes, and lean the washer forward to see what is going on. Most washers' mechanicals can be acessed from either the bottom, or from the back via access panel. The water leaks are generally a pretty easy repair.
* Inspect the water supply connections
* Inspect the drain hose
* Inspect the water pump
* Inspect outer tub for cracks or corrosion
* Inspect the tub seal
* Inspect the tub bearing
Pls rate my solution...
Remove the control console cover. Find the water level switch.
It has a small tube attached to it.
Remove the tube and blow air through it. It is probably stopped up. Reattach it to the water level switch.
Look over the length of the tube and may sure it is not pinched.
Set the washer to spin and run spin for about 1 minute.
Then run water on a lower level and see if it shuts off.
If not replace the water level switch.
That is because the water level switch get stuck when water level reaches that particular point.
The water level switch is activated either by a floater sensor or by a membrane sensor that detects water pressure/volume, depending on the model. On washing machines it is usually a membrane switch, and that is faulty on your machine.
there are several drive belts for this model... check here to see if the one you are fitting is the correct one... also,is the tensioner siezed? causing the tension to be too slack therefore allowing the belt to shred at speed?
sounds like the thrust bearing is worn causing an imbalance on the shaft. check herehttp://www.partselect.com/AdvancedModelSearch.aspx?ModelNum=AAV7000AWW&mfgModelNum=&fkMfgID=1:- for a schematic on this machine and parts as listed.. hope this is of some help
