Looks like you need to replace the main DRIVE BELT , first open the panel to access inside the washer , give it a test wash and look at the bottom where the belt is , check if belt is tight , if you still hear the squeak try lubricate spray to the pulleys and avoid spaying the MAIN BELT . hope this info works

During the spin cycle it has started to squeak? it sounds like rubber, maybe the seal or the fan belt?


If it squeaks or spins slower than when it was new, and/or you smell something like burning rubber, it is probably the belt. You can replace it yourself if you look up the make and model number on the internet. There are free sites that will walk you though the process. free.

Burning smell + Screeching sound but Belt is not the cause, then WHAT is?


A lot of people may be searching for help with horrible sounds and burned belts for Maytag and Admiral washers only a few years old from Home Depot etc. They used a cheap pump that has a corrugated sheetmetal ring that holds the bearings. Well as it runs the vibration and friction cause it to slip down and grind on the pulley as well as not turn easily. If you put the washer on it's back and turn the small pulley and it turns with a gritty feel or you can actually see a loose metal collar type ring thing that looks like a cookie cutte; then you have a bad pump.

There is a small access panel on the back of the washer. Three screws and two spring clips on the hoses and you're done (use big pliers on the hoses). Put the belt back on (just push motor to one side, it's not tight), then check for leaks and reinstall the cover. VOILA! You can find the pump on ebay for $25 or your local GE parts dealers for $50.
