underneath the agitator is a graphite seal ring and nut that seals the inner tub and the outer tub. a suitable spanner wrench or a 6 inch channel lock plier will remove this locknut. replace the seal.

Hello gwatson01,
Wondering if you could rate my clarification request as a solution? I joined this forum as a owner DIY’er to help other owners. The machine is just too expensive to junk and as you found fairly easy to work on. As a forum member as you I receive no compensation for my support to other owners. Thank you in advance for your support. Rich
My solution;
I’m an owner/DIY’er of the machine. Please take a look at this post and see if your mechanical noise may be coming from underneath the tumblers, maybe some coins grinding around under the tumblers. If you think it is take a look at the service manual link in that post. It will take you thru the tumbler removal process, see if you feel comfortable with the process, the manual does not call out a #20 Torx driver is required to remove the tumbler.
If you think the grinding noise is very metallic and not muffled by a tub of water the grinding noise may be coming from the transmission/clutch area and removing the machine front vertical cover will be necessary to better sound isolate the suspect area of the machine. Do you feel OK to remove the front panel? If so see this post.
The 1st link I sent you to shows that this owner had issues after the coin removal. I would also like you try a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket. Can you let me know if that cycle runs with no noise? We can’t totally rule out an issue with the clutch/transmission components with the info supplied so far. To help you remotely diagnose this issue detail information is needed. Let’s try to sound isolate the grinding noise source location. Follow all safety rules in the Service Manual. If you don’t feel comfortable to proceed I would recommend you call in a qualified FAV6800AWW repair service for support.

My Maytag Top Load Washer was in the beginning of the wash cycle with a large comforter when it began squealing, sounded like from a belt within the machine. I smelled a burning smell and stopped the...


The belt has been ruined. Basically there was to much load on the belt. You will need to replace the belt, maybe a 20 dollar fix and should take no longer then 15 minutes. Just make sure that before you go to the parts house, your remove the old belt and take it with you along with the model and serial number of the machine.

Please rate.

My Maytag Insignia Top Load Washer


Not necessarily, When replacing the transmission the important things to replace is the transmissions and the seals. If i had the model and serial i could adv you of the exact part numbers. The serial contains a special series number for parts. You can visit apdepot.com and put your complete model there to pull up parts list. But tub is not necessary unless damaged. However the seal between the transmission and tub is, which is included in the seal sets, you will see this on the website when you search lists.
