Question about Maytag Washing Machines

1 Answer

I own a Maytag Performa 4 Speed/24 cycle Washing machine. it is 4 years old. Problem: A very LOUD grinding sound when washer engages into wash, rinse, spin cycles. The Tub does agitate - but I don't know that it agitates to it's capacity - also - rinse and spin do not completly drain the water, I have to run the spin a second time.

    Clean washer cycle previously has run ok for six years. Suddenly skips from wash with 55 minutes remaining to spin with 2 minutes remaining. It doesn't rinse at all and misses all of the time in between.

    Wash cycles are "off", meaning at start of the cycle when just water should be going in, the agitator is already moving. Machine skips the rinse cycle and spins out

Sounds like you have a tub seal problem, which took out the bearings, I take it one buzy mom does lots of laundry! Maybe time for a new washer.

SOURCE: Maytag MAV 9600 grinding noise/no agitation. Tub

I had a problem similar to this. There was a bobbie (?) pin stuck in the pump. Google how to take the front off and then disassemble the pump. (It will be on the bottom right side in the front of the machine). Pretty simple. Took about an hour and a half.

Maytag performa washer during spin cycle tub is making loud banging noise and continues even when clothes are evenly distributed


This sounds like the transmission is going. Better get another washing machine other than a Performa.

It appears Maytag no longer produces the type of quality product we have purchased since 1970... we've owned three Maytag Washers - our last "performa" is a piece of ****!

Maytag Performa top loader is making grinding noises


The agitators are a pop-on fit. Make sure that the agitator is firmly seated on the shaft. Lift it up and if it moves easily adjust it to the splines on the shaft and press it back into place.

Maytag performa washer grinding noise


Sounds like the water pump is going out on it. The part runs about $80 and should only take about 45 minutes to install.

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

Whirlpool is good but Speed Queen is the best with the best warranty in the industry!
Tested to wash 8 loads a week for 25 years!
3 years parts and labor compared to all others with only 1 year! And 10 years for the transmission not 1 year like all the rest!
only 34 gallons of water used in the top loader and 13.9 gallons in the front loader.
I'm 53 and I'm not buying another washer again!
YES I SELL THEM AND EVERYONE WORKING IN MY STORE HAS ONE! There are plenty of more features!
Speed queen is used in laundry mats all over the world!

So now that I reallllly saved you, GIVE ME THE BEST RATING SCORE HERE AT FIXYA!!


If its 10 years old or more don't put money into it!
The new ones are much more energy efficient!
