Question about Magic Chef CAV2000 Top Load Washer
Went down to check on the wash and could smell a rubbery burning type smell..looked int he washer and it stopped right in mid of wash cycle..all water still in tub. Move the dial and it will not come on in any cycle? Also when you open the lid (this is the rest of the time when its actually working!) the drum stops spinning and makes the loudest annoying squeak... ! Washer is 6 years old....
suspect noisy brake not a major concern but not a pleasant noise to listen to..best not try repairing yourself ..believe that may be a maytag version if so brake spring can be dangerous to release without proper tools

.I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man
who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the washer or dryer ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and found that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video made it possible for me to do my own repair. If you are repairing a dryer or a front load washer I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on both washers and dryers as well as other appliances. If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart this video is an early christmas present. I was so impressed with it that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about it. If you look at the back of your washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video is just what you need. You can see it at www.acmehowto.com You will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. After viewing the video or if you have a v-belt drive rather than a direct drive, I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good
trouble shooting and repair nformation on most
washers and dryers. I think you'll find what you need
there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever
go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.
