Question about Maytag MAV4755 Top Load Washer

2 Answers

My MAV7256aww is making a horrible noise. Replaced water pump and belt after appliance tech came out and said that was the problem. There was also a white fibrous powder under the washer and also inside around the part that the springs attach to.

    is this an easy part to replace? I have heard horror stories about taking the transmission apart due to the spring.

    Would the brake make noise even when the washer is in the spin cycle?

Hello. It sounds like the transmission has gone bad on your machine. This is a big and expensive repair. If your machine is over 3 years old you may want to stop repairing and replace it. J.

This water pump is making funny noise how can i solve this


A water pump on any auto making noise is a sign of bearing failure on the water pump drive stem. The only remedy is to have the water pump replaced or replace it yourself. The bearing gets water intrusion or dries out and the bearing fails. The water pump is not expensive but labor costs can be substantial depending upon the location of the water pump. Many water pumps are driven by the timing belt on smaller cars. Gaining access to the water pump often involves removing the timing belt cover and the timing belt. Failure to reinstall the timing belt in the exact same position as it was removed can cause catastrophic engine failure. Without your vehicle make and model this response is generic most vehicles.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

2004 gmc envoy. has a 6cyl and a serp belt. the center pully off set to the left (i think its a water pump) has a bad wobble and making a horrible noise. Not over heating and no leaks. should i just change...


If the fan is attached to it than it is the water pump making the noise and it will need to be replaced. If the fan clutch is not attached to it than it is either the idler pulley or the tensioner pulley. The tensioner is on the passenger side (left) of the front of the motor.

I have a Maytag washer that the agitator is not working , I makes a squealing noise, How do I repair this? Thanks


Your problem may be a seized water pump with the motor turning the drive belt on a water pump pulley that is not turning (belt squealing). Or the noise could be originating from a water pump that has a noisy/bad bearing. If the pump pulley is turning and making the noise, you may be able to lubricate the pump shaft with some quality shaft lubicant (no guarantee that the noise will cease)! If other problem, contact an appliance service company.
