Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6451 Top Load Washer
I would imagine that this would be a top load washer is that correct? Yep sure is. I would imagine that the brake package on the bottom of the unit is probably faulty. It could be the stator, the brake pad, or possibly the snubber. The only problem is without a special tool, you wont be able to remove the stator (please do not try to remove without this tool, you can be seriously injured or killed for sure). Unplug the unit, then tilt it back against the wall. Place something under-neith to be sure it doesnt fall on you, then remove the belt off the pump/motor/main pulley. Twist the thrust pulley (center pulley at the trans) back and forth and see if you can hear the squeeking from down below. If you can hear it right there, it could be the brake/pulley/or snubber assm. Let me know what you find out, and if the squeeking is not coming from there, fill me in on if you can see or hear where its coming from. Thanks!!!! Jim

It is so common that the washing machine can make terrible noise in many ways and is a common fault. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that machine is vibrating when it is running then the motor /drum suspension has to be inspected. Since these fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for the noise with a good inspection lamp. Manually turn the motor and drum and listen for the noise, if so the motor bearings, the drum agitator shaft and fittings must be checked. Also the suspensions which include the shock absorbers and springs, the body clamps must be checked to be in correct alignment and not changed in position. Tightening of the mounting is also very important. Finally in most cases a drop of OIL or smear of grease on the moving parts cane solve most issues.
