Hi above is a place to obtain for free your service and repair manual, here there are troubleshooting steps to be performed to isolate the problem(s)

http://www.do-it-yourself-washing-machine-and-dryer-repair-help.com/

Above is a great DIY washer site to assist you to isolate and repair your problem.

Any grinding noises are NOT good, and if the belt is OK, then we must suspect something maybe caught in the pump, or a bad pump or gearbox? It's pretty hard to tell just from a description, well unless the description is unique, but noise can mean many things.

Now, if you don't wish to DIY then simply call in a Maytag serviceman, and then when he arrives ask for a "Quote" before allowing any work to be undertaken. This way you can make an informed decision as to what to do, repair or replace, depending on costings.

That means the pump is doing its job so the direct drive coupler has sheared off between the transmission and the motor

My hotpoint washer will spin but will not wash or rinse, the agitator makes a noise as it attempts to wash and then rinse. the spin seems to work fine


The agitator shaft has splines at its top which fit inside a splined area inside the agitator. Sometimes the splines in the agitator strip; then you would need a new agitator. If that is not the case the problem is within the mechanism. There is a repair kit available for that, but you need to take the mechanism out of the machine. I am assuming that you have the "direct drive" machine, recognizable by the pump sitting at the front, in the middle, under the tub. If you have the older, belt driven washer, please get back and I will explain.

I have a Kenmore top loading large capacity washer model 1028882791. It began washing as usual then began to making a loud humming sound. The agitation stopped. It only makes a loud humming sound. I...


The humming sound is coming from the drive motor running but unable to drive the agitator nor the basket to spin. The drive motor is definitely running as the drain function works because of the fact that drain pump is directly coupled with the rear spline of the motor. The drain pump works in either direction as long as the motor runs. The problem is obviously a broken motor coupler which transfers the mechanical energy of the motor to the transmission. The solution then is to replace the broken coupler. Click on the link below for the detailed step-by-step procedure in replacing the motor coupler.

Loud banging noise during washing cycle. Sounds like agitator is slipping,then banging. No noise during spinning cycles.


Grab the agitator at the base and attempt to rotate it clockwise and counter clock wise. It should remain firmly in place. If there is movement the agitator spline is worn.

This is your Agitator:

http://www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-WBSR3140DW-%3d%3dc201

It does not come with the fabric dispenser. It has to be ordered seperately. You should be able to transfer you old one to the new one if you do have to replace the agitator.

Besides the agitator the drive bell can also be the source of the noise. It is located under the agitator.

http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-WBSR3140DW-%3d%3dc239i1195917&PartID=1195917

This part is the most likely cause of the noise.

Thanks for using FixYa.

GE profile washing machine won't agitate it spins out, drains,


Pull the agitator out and check the drive collar splines.If you have the model I think you have just pull straight up on the agitator. Once removed you will see the drive collar with a 7/16 head bolt,remove it and pull off the collar.First before pulling it off spin it if splines are stripped it will spin freely.

The inside of your agitator became worn, and possible strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. The loud noise mustly occurs during the spin cycle. If you hear this loud noise your load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it.
