Washing machine screeches

My maytag top loader A512 -- 20 yrs old -- screeches when it comes to a stop. I live in West Indies and our only machine repair person has no idea how to resolve or spare parts. Wondering if it might be brakes. Will be visiting Canada soon and wondering what parts I should purchase

Brown stains/lines on my washing


If it's a front loader it may be coming from the rubber door boot. Take a rag and rub the boot and see if it discolors the rag. If so replace the boot. 12 year old rubber (although awesome) is probably breaking down structurally.
If it's a top loader it could be oil from the transmission. I'm not that familiar with F&P machines but i have top loaders in my laundromat that can do this and i suspect most are capable. Likely you could identify them as oil spots though. They do not leave lines. Hope this helps. I could probably tell you more if i had the full model number that is on the machine (usually on the inside of the lid or door or the back along the top.)

When washing machine not being used the water drips into the washer tub, it is top loader about 12 yrs old


if the washer is filling up on it's own the water valve is bad,sediment gets inside it doesn't close all the way allowing water to leak through. they show two different valves,when you talk to your parts guy bive him the full model number off of the washer and they are asking for a series number either 83 or 87 so you get the correct valve
