Washer squeals during wash & rinse cycles.


It sounds like you're brake stator & rotor is worn and merit replacement, it would also be prudent to replace the thrust bearing as well since you'll be in the same area for the repair. The way to verify is to place the unit in spin & allow it to reach speed then open the lid. If it squeals then the repair would need to performed, if it does not then further troubleshooting would be needed. Hope this helps... Bill

Washer squeals in rinse or spin


When the washer is in the final spin cycle and starts to sqeal, just pour a little water through the drawer about half of a glass full usually does the trick. What apparantly happens is that the connection/seal between the big grey rubber seal and the stainless steel drum has dried out due to the centrifugal effect of the spin cycle and it needs to be wetted to keep the sealed area lubricated and cool. The squealing is a result of the dry rubbing of these parts during the spin cycle.

Load squeal when it in the agitation cycle.


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.

Loud squeal during wash and spin cycles, maytag atlantis washer


Squealing normal occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks. Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment, normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the belt.

If part of a belt gets torn and it is long enough, it will hit any part of the washing machine within range and make a clicking noise at every revolution of the motor.

I am pretty sure you need new belts. You should be able to remove a few screws and open the back cover. Between the pulleys there is a tensioner...loosen that so you can remove the belt easily. replace it with a new belt and adjust the tension.

hope this helps
