SOURCE: Maytag washer loud sqeal when

The loud squealing can be caused by a couple of things. The following link explains this to you:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r387833-maytag_washer_squeaking_problem

This is a problem that can be accomplished by the "do-it-yourselfer" if you are mechanically inclined. In addition, a special is required (and recommended) to compress the large spring located under the Brake Stator. If you go to searspartdirect.com and type in your model number, look under the "Transmission" heading and refer to the drawing. There's an excellent illustration of the parts I discuss in the link and how they are assembled.

The spring that you must compress is item number 20.
The brake rotor is item 23.
The snubber is item 24.
The brake stator is item 25.

This can be a challenging repair is you've never worked on a washer before. Now, if you wish to pursue this repairclinic.com is another reputable website that offers some additional assistance that I need not see on the previous website. They offer a service manual (item #1094741) that provides step-by-step instructions on repairs. Maytag provides excellent instructions with their replacement parts, but this manual may come in handy. Additional tools that I would recommend are:

Spring Removal Tool (item #455570) - makes it easier to remove the wash tub suspension springs.
Brake/Bearing/Seal Removal Tool (item #997909) - this tool is required to compress the brake spring.

The following link shows an illustration of tools mentioned:

http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx?searchText=maytag+washer+tools

I know this may seem overwhelming, so I would recommend trying to use the recommendations in the first link I provided you on how to quieten the problem first. In some cases, this is all it takes to quieten the problem. It sounds like to me that your brake rotor is glazed over and needs replacement. I hope you find some of this information helpful. Let me know if you have any questions.

ur counter balance weights or damper rods damaged

If your washer has a loud banging noise during spin the balance weight may be loose. This weight is to counter act the weight of the motor so you will find the weight directly behind the motor. Sometimes simply tightening the bolts will fix your issue but if the bolts are stripped out get some bolts slightly longer than the original bolt to allow you to put a locking nut on the bottom side of the mounting plate. If the weight is broken replace it.

Another noise issue can arise from a worn SNUBBER RING on some washers that have a snubber like some Maytags, if u notice tiny pc's of white/grey shavings on the floor or around the bottom washer area? A sign of bad snubber. When removing to replace be careful as the spring underneath is pressure loaded.

A very similiar sound can be produced when the belt is worn but the difference is that a snubber noise can be produced during the spin cycle or when the cycle has finished and the spin tub is coasting to a stop. A worn belt noise can only be produced while the motor is actively engaged in spinning the spin tub. If it is discovered that the belt is worn and the base has black, shredded belt residue then it may not necessary to clean it out (belt residue generally will not cause a problem with the snubber). It will be necessary however, to find the cause of the belt failure.


Lastly Washer vibration can be caused by a broken counter balance spring. Ur washer may be equipped with one or more counter balance springs which help to absorb the natural movement of the spinning tub. If a counter balance spring fails the tub might lean in one direction more than another and it will shake and cause vibration.
By the way my advice is free cuz God is good!

GRINDING NOISES:

The plastic drive is known as a splutch (splined clutch). One problem with these washers has been loosening of the nut that locks the pulley to the agitator input shaft. If it gets loose, the pulley drops and the teeth no longer have good contact with the teeth of the splutch basket drive gear in spin mode. The solution is application of blue locktite to the threads of the input shaft. There have also been a lot of failures of the actuator that operates the cam ring of the splutch which raises and lowers the basket drive gear. It is raised for agitate mode and lowered for spin. There is a spring between the basket drive gear and the gearcase housing that maintains pressure on the basket drive gear. There are cams on the cam ring that ride up and down on cams in the splutch cam (housing) as it is rotated by the actuator thus raising and lowering the basket drive gear. The gearcase has a planetary gear set in it.

The admiral washing machine works fine except on the spin cycle it wabbles wildly, like the clothes are loaded on one side. but does it even while washer is empty


At its best this washer is a beast in the spin cycle. The machine must be mounted on a cement floor. It is written in the unpacking instructions. Check all springs, machine must be level. If all checks out replace snubber ring or adjust by centering snubber ring Mounted unde the transmission base.

Off balance spin/poor wringing


CHECK TO MAKE SURE ALL THE SUSPENSION SPRINGS ARE CONNECTED INSIDE THE WASHER. IF SO, THERE IS A SNUBBER UNDER THE WASHER MILKSTOOL THAT IS MADE OUT OF PLASTIC THAT CAN WEAR AND NOT ALLOW THE SUSPENSION TO GLIDE LIKE IT IS SUPPOSED TO. NOT THE EASIEST FIX DUE TO THE BRAKE BEING UNDER HEAVY SPRING PRESSURE. USE CAUTION

My maytag washer won't turn or spin..


This advice is for certain Maytag TOP LOADING washers equipped with a vertical transmission and drive belt system.

Loud squeaking noises during the wash cycle or, at the end of the spin cycle, can be attributed to a worn snubber ring and/or brake assembly. The snubber is a plastic ring located under the tub support. It helps to reduce vibration as the tub agitates and spins. You cannot lubricate the snubber to get rid of the noise. In fact, you may damage the washer if you do. A small amount of corn starch can be sprinkled under the bottom tub support where the snubber ring is located to get rid of some noise related problems (this will be the round metal plate where the tub support meets the bottom casing of the machine). A worn snubber will also cause some vibration or out of balance problems. The brake tends to glaze over after it has become worn and will squeak or cause sudden jerking of the washer when the spin cycle stops. If the corn starch tip does not get rid of the squeaks, I would recommend replacing the following parts:

Brake Stator
Brake Rotor and Lining
Snubber:


You will need: Brake Removal Kit*

*Brake removal tool is required in order to remove the brake assembly and/or to replace the snubber. There is a 200lbs brake spring located under the Brake Stator that must be compressed PRIOR to removal or you could cause injury to yourself.

The parts required to make the repairs aren't very expensive, but the tool required to do it can cost about $100. This repair I would rate as DIFFICULT for the average do-it-yourselfer. If you've never worked on this type of washer before, this is not a job that I would recommend. However, Maytag DOES provide informative how-to instructions with all their parts.

To replace the snubber and brake assembly:

1. Remove the front case of the washer to access the washer interior.
2. Tilt the washer towards the back and remove the drive belt. Slide the drive motor towards the center pulley to relieve belt tension.
3. Remove the drive pulley by removing the center cap and retaining ring from the drive shaft. Remember how these components go back together. There should be a couple of plastic drive bearing pieces and some metal washers above the pulley on the shaft.
3. Lower washer and remove hoses from the wash tub.
4. Remove the suspension springs. NOTE: Pulling the wash tub towards the spring you are removing will release some of the tension on it.
5. I usually remove the entire wash tub with transmission still installed at this point and place it upside down outside the washer for ease of accessing everything. (There are other methods, but I find this one easier).
6. This is where the brake compression tool will be required to remove the brake rotor, stator and snubber ring. (Instructions come with the tool). Basically, it involves compressing the spring by turning the compression tool CW with a wrench, loosening all the bolts on the brake stator housing, and then slowly turning the compression tool CCW.
7. The brake compression tool is removed at this point and the snubber, brake rotor, brake stator and brake spring can be accessed.
8. Replace any worn parts, and reassemble the brake assembly. DO NOT forget to place the brake spring back in place before putting the brake rotor back on.
9. Place the tub assembly right side up and lower back into washer.
10. Reconnect all hoses back to wash tub.
11. Reinstall all tub suspension springs. NOTE: It’s easier to start in the back of the washer and work your way towards the front.
12. Tilt washer back and reinstall drive pulley. NOTE: When placing drive pulley back on shaft turn pulley slightly to ensure it is seated all the way on the shaft. NOTE: If the shaft had multiple metal washers, you may only need ONE after replacing the snubber ring. Retain the extra washer for later use if needed. If the drive pulley is reinstalled correctly, a groove will be visible at the end of the drive shaft for the retaining ring to go back in place.
13. Reinstall drive belt.

NOTE: The following link lists the recommended tools to complete this repair:

Spring Removal Tool (item #455570)
Brake/Bearing/Seal Removal Tool Kit (item #997909)

Try leveling the washer. Check for play along the diagonal corners of the washer cabinet by applying downward pressure. If there is any play at all, the washer will shake during spin and the legs must be leveled.

You have br put your heavy washer on a floor that would be condemned for structural weakness if a building inspector saw it. Try placing reinforcing pads or pieces of plywood on the floor under the washer.
On Maytag top loaders: worn damper pads.
On Whirlpool/Kenmore direct-drive machines: worn snubber pad

You could replace the snubber ring and springs,, if you love the machine, and make sure no grease is leaking. It's a lot of labor. These are not the real Maytags of the past.

Banging during spin cycle


Its possible that a spring has broken, become overstretched, or otherwise failed. Also there is a delrin ring called a snubber that the tub moves on (between the base of the machine and the frame of the tub) it wears out and causes this complaint. I also recommend new springs with a snubber. However replacing a snubber is quite tricky and you will probably need a Tech for that.

Off balance during spin cycle


I have a Performa Model PAV3200AWW that would go unbalanced every time it would go into a spin cycle. I found the problem to be a worn out snubber. This is a plastic ring that is at the pivot point for the whole tub. It separates the metal to metal contact at the bottom of the washer pivot point. The part is less than ten dollars, but it is a quit a job to replace. I had to remove the whole tub to replace mine, but it did solve the problem. If you see a lot of plastic shavings around the pivot point, then this could be your problem.
