My Maytag washer started growling something fierce last night. Everything still works, but I'm scared to be in the same room with it. The noise only comes from the first cycle when the agitator is working. The spin and rinse cycles are trouble free. Could this be some kind of bearing problem or is it a component problem??
I have a PAV2300 and I recently experienced a grinding noise. Turned out to be the pump pully has a sleve between the pully and the bearing that has slid out of position and was grinding against the base of the pump. You could see where it had ground the paint away. I took the pump out and using a small bladed screwdriver, wedged it between the selve and the base of the pump and working my way around it several times, managed to press it back into place. On the PAV2300 the pump is in the back of the unit.
Looking at the picture the sleve is between that pully and the black base.
Hope this helps. Good luck :)

Something caught in pump & belt burning. Motor start capacitor (If fitted) is US & needs replacing. Timer faulty, motor has burning smell, replace timer & or motor. Motor switchgear failed motor sitting there & humming, adjust switchgear or replace motor.
It sounds like it may be a bad pump and you will probably need a new belt. I would recommended calling a service tech this is a fairly difficult job to fix and there may be other things going on that you cannot see. Do not attempt to use the machine until it is checked out.If I can do anything else to help please let me know. Ken
I would check the motor control board located near the floor on the right side for burnt components. The motor is a 3 phase unit and if one of the phases are working the motor will growl and won't be able to supply the proper torque.
See www.neptunehelp.com for disassembly photos and for more info on the faulty door latch wax motor.
I have the 52" version of the Viera model. Mine went out last night and started blinking twice over and over again. I suspected overheating so i just went to bed and tried it in the morning with no luck. Then I unplugged it for more than ten minutes and plugged it back in and everything worked fine. I hope this helps.
