    Yes, unfortunately. It started a few days ago with a winding, bearing-type noise when agitating which tunred into a louder "almost grinding" type noise. It also made a noise in Spin cycle. Yesterday, it completely stopped running in the middle of a cycle and I smelled a burning smell, like a motor..



    I called my local, very trustworthy appliance repair source and they informed me this was a "xommon" problem with Maytag machines and it would cost over $200.00 even if I did the repairs myself, which I planned on. They said it was very involved and advised I just buy a new Washer. They have recommended Whirlpool as the best and most reliable. That's what I'm trying to do today.



    Thanks for NOTHING Maytag..... Your machine is only 5 years old.......

    I am sorry to say my Maytag Performa washer is also making loud screech sounds during the rinse cycle. I have already taken out the pump once and it seemed to help but....the noise is back.

    I thought I could do without my Maytag Performa dryer for a while before I pay a repairman...it is making loud noises and smells like it's burning on low heat. But now I have neither machine working properly. This started when they were only 14 months old right after the warranty ran out! At two years, it looks like I might need new machines...and they definitely will not be Maytag.

    Have had my Maytag Performa washer for about 7 years.  Has been great until now.  When spinning or even agitating, high-pitched squeal/grinding noise.  No rubber smell or black smoke like the others.  Any way to tell if this is the $60 easy-to-fix pump problem or the $200 forget-it problem?

    Thanks,
    Karen

What I found on my Maytag was the water pump went out. There is a metal ring under the pulley that fell and was grinding until it froze. Replacement is easy and can be done by anyone. You can buy a reasonable pump offline. Good luck with your repairs

My maytag performa pav 2300 is making a loud noise while its spinning. Sounds like metal on metal. Its working fine. Its just that noise. We just got a new motor yesterday. What could be the problem ?...


Hello
On this model washer the noise is most likely caused by a worn washer tub seal assembly. remove agitator (nut on the top under cap), spin basket and tub assembly. remove seal and install new one.

Washer is making a grinding noise


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.

Maytag Performa - Loud Noises during Spin Cycle


This washer is JUNK!!!!!! We have the same washer (2 1/2 years old) and same problem. Tried to replace the bearing myself, no luck. So I called a repair man to come out and look at it. As soon as i told him the model number, they would'nt even come out. Very common problem for this washer. We are on our way to Sears to purchase a Kenmore.....GOOD LUCK
