Question about Maytag MTW6500TQ

Open Question

The washer is actually a Maytag Bravo series. MTW6700TQ1 2yrs old It sounds like there is something pinging around at the rear of the machine towards the floor. Almost like a penny or ball bearing rattling around when the machine draines and spins...It is not a constant noise just when it begins to spin after draining.

SOURCE: Maytag MAV6200AWW does not spin

Be sure to check inside basket very carefully to make sure no loose nails or screws or drill bits etc that were left in a pocket are sticking through a hole in the basket and locking it to tub. This is common. If that is not the problem,one of three things has happened. 1 The thrust bearing that releases the brake has worn out. This is the most common and easiest thing to repair. If you tilt the machine back so you can look under it you will see the pulley that turns the transmission. When the pulley turns one direction it works the agitator, turn it the other direction and you should see it push the brake up that is directly above it. The thrust bearing kit includes the pulley and all bearings and washers to release brake. If you are mechanichal and can follow the directions that come with it, it is a fairly simple repair. 2 The brake lining has come apart and "stacked" itself in the brake housing. Replacing the brake is not hard, but there is about 200lbs of spring force pushing against the brake and housing that must be released slowly. I would recommend you call a technician for this just because I don't want anyone to get hurt trying to follow my directions on this repair. 3 An item of clothing has found its way between the basket and tub and has the basket bound up. This would mean removing agitator and basket. It is not likely this has happened, but I have seen it before.

If you are a good DYI'er you can find the parts here you'll need a couple of hours set aside and maybe a few beers for after. If you are not going to fix it yourself the labor costs and parts would come
to just about the price of a new one. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: will agitate but won't spin

You could have a bad door switch, always make sure your appliance is disconnected from it's power source before performing work on it, if the door switch is defective your washer will do everything but spin in the spin cycle, it's usually located at the door latch, when the door is closed it pushes the door switch in, you can check it by removing the switch and doing a continuity test on it with the switch in the closed position, or it could be a broken drive belt, some washers use two belts instead of one, check to see if your washer has more than one belt, there are other things it could be that are more complicated such as a bad transmission, bearings, motor, or clutch. which could involve calling a repair man.

SOURCE: washer making rattle noise during wash and spin cycle


I would agree with that diagnosis. That is a symptom of a worn thrust bearing for sure and it is a quite common occurrence on your style of washer.

I wouldn't rule out debris in the drain pump as another possibility as well though, i.e. small stones, jewelry, etc. You may want to rule out that possibility before throwing money at a pulley & thrust bearing kit ( it is actually a "transmission pulley kit" which comes with a new thrust bearing as well ). part # 12002213 and retails for about $40-$50 see photo's below.

Hope that answer's your question. Let me know if I can assist you further and thank's for visiting "fixya" for your repair inquiry. Please take a second and rate this info I provided for you here.

Good luck.

The washer ran fine then stopped with water not draining. When I push the on button I get a buzz or humming noise .nothing moves. There is no error code.

Sounds as if you have something doen in the pump preventing it from draining and in doing so shutting the machine off as a safety action. I think you can actually access the pump from the rear of the machine. just unplug the machine, prepare to get wet, take the back of the machine off, take the lines off the pump and check for the blockage.

I Bought a Bravo series 300 Washer and Dryer 18 months ago. They came with a 1 yr. manufacture warranty The first month I had problems with the dryer which was covered under warranty.. It was inconvenient...

usually most areas have a USED appliance store. usually these guys will have a bunch of old fridges and stoves around outside the store. Our town has three or four of them. you may have to ask around but these guys usually have parts for cheap. and they will sometimes make house calls. try googling used appliances in your area. they may also set you up with a cheaper washer with a METAL tub.

good luck

Maytag bravo quiet series 300: Stopped at spin:

We have a Maytag Bravo Quiet Series 300 washing machine, the door latch is broken. I have the replacement part ( the locking mechanism) but I need can not figure out how to get the top of the washer to flip up to give me access to top front of the machine to remove the old part and replace it with the new.

How do I flip back the top (not the door) of this machine?
