Ok look at the front of washer see the pannel on bottom there are 4 screws under that pannel take that pannel off when off you will see a large cap facing you on right side have a bucket ready but take that off you will get alot of water and **** like pennys lint anything that got past the pump. Infact you need to do that once a month to keep clean and to make sure the water don't start to smell. Whilpool don't want you to know that so they make more money off you. Hope this helps

see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Tub Bearing If the washer is making a loud noise the tub bearing might be worn out, this is a common problem. The bearing can be replaced.

Clutch If the washer is making a loud noise in the spin cycle, the clutch assembly might be worn out. The clutch assembly makes the connection between the transmission and the inner tub. It is designed to allow the tub to get up to the proper spin speed gradually. As the clutch wears out it may become loud during spin or just after the spin cycle finishes. The clutch is not repairable, if it is loud or not working properly it will need to be replaced.

Drive Belt If the washer is making a loud noise the drive belt might be defective. Over time the drive belt will dry out and start cracking, eventually a piece of the belt can break off resulting in a loud noise whenever the motor is running.

Transmission If the washer is making a loud noise the transmission might be worn out or defective. There are many other more likely causes for noise from a washer. If the noise turns out to be caused by the transmission it may have to be replaced.

Transmission If the washer is making a loud noise the transmission might be worn out or defective. There are many other more likely causes for noise from a washer. If the noise turns out to be caused by the transmission it may have to be replaced.

Drive Motor If the washer is making a loud noise the drive motor bearings may have worn out. Washer motors are normally almost silent when they run. If the motor is run without a belt hooked up to it and it's loud it will have to be replaced.

Water Inlet Valve If the washer is noisy or loud, particularly when the washer is filling, the water inlet valve is at fault. Replace it.

Tub Seal and Bearing Kit If the washer is making a loud noise the tub seal and bearing kit may need to be replaced. This is a common problem and the parts are relatively easy to replace.
Rear Drum with Bearing If the washer is making a loud noise the rear drum with bearing might need to be replace. On this washer the bearing is not sold separately, the entire rear drum will have to be replaced. This is a very involved repair and will require disassembling most of the washer. However, the problem is going to get worse very quickly and so either the drum and bearing will need to be replaced or the washing machine.

Bearing If the washer is making a loud noise the bearing might be worn out. As bearings wear out from friction they gradually get worse and worse until they fail. In the meantime they get louder. If the noise primarily happens during the spin cycle the bearing is likely the problem.
Drive Pulley If the washer is making a loud noise the drive pulley might be worn out, cracked, loose or bent. Remove the drive pulley and inspect it carefully. If it is damaged or defective replace it.

Pulley If the washer is making a loud noise the pump may be worn out, or something might be caught in it. Remove the pump and inspect it for debris. If it is clear and the blades spin freely the problem might be somewhere else.
U-Joint Kit If the washer is making a loud noise the U-Joint may have failed. This is the primary drive mechanism for the agitation motion in this washer. Although this is not a very difficult repair for a DIY'er with some experience, the part is expensive and so it may be worth considering a new washer.

Motor Coupling If the washer is making a loud noise the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and transmission

My dishwasher is just three years old. The other night my wife said it made a loud noise while it was running and now it is full of water at the end of the cycle. Any ideas?


The pump attached to the end of the motor shaft inside the tub may have broken. If it doesn't spin the water wont pump out but usually the water wont spray on the dishes either. Watch it run a second with the door open and the door switch make to see if it's spraying.

Tub makes loud thumping noise when spinning


Good morning! It's common to hear a loud thumping noise during spinning because the load (clothes) are not properly place in the tub. Please try to put the load in order & compress it down. best regards.

Fisher-Paykel washer pump noise & some water left in tub


Lube the brass bearings on the motor. For some reason the bearing on the bottom nearest to the cooling fan will start to whine. I would guess because it's kicking dust up around the unit. I used a lube that will hold in place. Lube between the bracket that holds the motor together and by the fan. The noise should stop. I also suggest you lube the top bearing as well. The lube I recommend is a Silicone paste type.

There's no reset switch that I know of. This particular model has a belt driven pump with no electrical connection. Changing the timer is not going to do anything. It cost about $50 to $60 if you find it to be bad and need to replace it. You can find parts for your washer at repairclinic.com. Just type in your model number and you will be provided a pictorial parts listing. This is a bit premature, you may just have a broken drive belt. But...you have that full tub of water. If you just need to drain the tub in order to make repairs, here's a couple of suggestions that I have used:

1. If you own a small submersible pump, you can drain the tub quickly by placing the pump in the bottom of the tub and run a garden hose outside or into a deep sink (if available). Ensure you have removed all wet clothing to make sure you don't clog the pump.

2. Another method is to remove the drain line from the standpipe and use a wet/dry shop vac to pull a vacuum. This will work if the pump isn't lodged with anything. This method is going to be slower if you don't have a vacuum of large capacity. These wash tubs generally hold about 35 gallons of water. So...if you have a 10 gallon capacity shop vac, you may have to empty it 3 or 4 times before you get all the water out. If the pump is clogged, you can still drain directly from the tub.

If you don't own either, I would recommend that you obtain one or the other somehow. Unless, you wish to try to bail all that water by hand. You will need to empty the washer of all this weight in order to check the drive belt as most Maytags have their drive belts system UNDER the washer. I wouldn't try tipping the washer back with a full tub of water. I hope this helps you. Post back with comments if you need further assistance.

Washer will not complete cycle


Sounds like your pump is once again not working. Best thing to do is get a wet vac and get the water out so you can clear the pump. I would also check the rubber gasket around the bottom of the tub and make sure its not worn and makes a good seal all around. If it is not sealing the tub any small item has a good chance of going down and into the pump. Good Luck

Loud Clicking noise only for the first 30-40 seconds of spin cycle.


You may have something caught in the pump impeller. I have found nails, screws, drill bits, paper clips and other small items that some how make their way past the wash tub and into the drain line. I would inspect the drain pump. Remove as much water as you can. Using a wet/dry shop vac to pull water through the drain hose is the best way to drain all residual water from the pump and drain lines. Remove the inlet line first and inspect the pump impeller. Chances are, you have something stuck causing the impeller to rub against it. If this has gone on too long, you may have some damage to the pump. I hope this is helpful to you.
