Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

We bought a Maytag Washer Dec. 07. The machine started to squeak shortly after the purchase. I was hoping it will go away, but it is not. Each time I use the washer we can hear the squeak through the whole wash cycle

The brake pad is squeaking in the brake drum. Like when the brakes on your car get glazed. It's annoying, but it won't affect the operation. Call the store where you purchased it and set up service to have it repaired. If the tech they send doesn't have a brake tool, or seems clueless, have them send a different tech. Be sure they replace the parts - not just scuff up the pads and drum already in there - Maytag's buying!
Unfortunately, there's no guarantee this will permanently take care of the situation. I have noticed that doing larger loads actually helps condition the brake seating surfaces when the parts are new.

Good luck!

Maytag washer squeaks when spin cycle stops


We have a Maytag Performa G3300 that we bought on 8/13/2001. It still works great, but on 2/25/10 it stopped heating. We found that by removing the front panel and vacuuming the accumulated lint on the inside of the dryer and the door, the problem was resolved. There were no parts to replace, just vacuuming.

While drying for short time the dryer starts to squeak


Probably a dry bearing
.You would have to gain access into the dryer to establish which bearing/s it is.
You would then need to see if lubricating the bearing/s, would cure the squeak..
If it does not, then you may have to fit a new bearing/s.\
Hope this helps.

My Electrolux washer is only 6 months old and the drum has started squeaking. What could the problem be?


NOT Solution - I just bought one last week and it squeaked for me today. Sounded like a belt. As the washer added more water to the drum to soak the clothes, the squeak went away. So not sure if belt slightly out of alignment - hence it rubs or perhaps a roller knob needs adjustment is what I am thinking.

Washing machine squeaks when running


I called a local repair service to check machine. Not good news! Pulley broken and transmission leaking. Cost to repair versus purchasing new washer prohibits repair. I sincerely appreciate your service and your response. Your service is a welcomed start to our problems.

Thanks

Screeching noise in maytag topload washer


The following link explains the problem you are having with your Maytag:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r387833-maytag_washer_squeaking_problem

It is common for the brakes on Maytag top loaders to wear and make noise, as well, as the snubber. There is a helpful tip that you can try to quieten the noise if it is the snubber. DO NOT oil it, or lubricate with any petroleum based products! This will ruin the unit and actually make the problem worse. NOTE: If the snubber is excessively worn, it was also cause vibration on the spin cycle.

If the brakes are worn, however, you can put a light film of oil on the brake pad. It is common for the pad to collect moisture in humid and damp climates and start to squeak against the brake stator. The brake pad consists of a rotor with a leather edge (pad). The leather can absorb moisture and begin to squeak against the brake stator. Oiling it slightly will get rid of the noise.

Confused? If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information useful.

NOTE: There is a follow-up comment at the bottom of the link I provided from another user. The method this person used to release the tension on the brake can save you from having to purchase the brake release tool.

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!

MAYTAG Wahing machine model MAV6000AWQ


I believe your machine is equipped with a "snubber plate" under the transmission. A lot of Maytag top-loaders are. This is a white teflon ring that is used as the wash tub and transmission support and assists in dampening vibrations during the spin cycles. It's located on the inside case of the machine under your transmission. When the snubber goes bad they generally start to squeak. They cannot be lubricated and must be replaced. If you try to oil them, they will eventually disintegrate. The snubber costs less than $10 to purchase. I hope this helps.
