Question about Maytag Washing Machines

My Maytag Bravo series 300 washing machine sounds like it's ready for lift off when ever it goes to the spin cycle. It seems to be in warp drive and is very loud. How can I fix this?

Hi JR,you have a bad tub bearing. Replacing the tub bearing is a complex job as it requires dismantling the whole tub assembly and replacing the tub bearings and tub seal. I would recommend calling a local repair company to get an estimate for the repair. It may be more than the cost of a new machine. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: loud squeal during wash and spin cycles, maytag atlantis washer

Squealing normal occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks. Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment, normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the belt.

If part of a belt gets torn and it is long enough, it will hit any part of the washing machine within range and make a clicking noise at every revolution of the motor.

I am pretty sure you need new belts. You should be able to remove a few screws and open the back cover. Between the pulleys there is a tensioner...loosen that so you can remove the belt easily. replace it with a new belt and adjust the tension.

hope this helps

very loud in spin cycle can mean a bad rear bearing, not something a homeowner would want to try to replace, parts would exceed 6-7 hundered dollars. you may have some extended part warr through the manufacture. still probly gonna be a 5 hundred when the labor is added in

SOURCE: Squeaking washing Machine during spin cycle

Hi
Loks that your machine is pretty old and hence the belt has hardened making a squeaking noise.
Good fix is get a new drive belt.
OR
Quick fix is you could put some oil on the drive belt..... it will work for now but not a permenant solution.

SOURCE: maytag bravo quiet series 300: Stopped at spin:

We have a Maytag Bravo Quiet Series 300 washing machine, the door latch is broken. I have the replacement part ( the locking mechanism) but I need can not figure out how to get the top of the washer to flip up to give me access to top front of the machine to remove the old part and replace it with the new.

How do I flip back the top (not the door) of this machine?

How can i rest my maytag bravo quiet series 300 washing machine?


There is a button to the left of your selector dial. I believe it's the PAUSE/CANCEL button. Press this button and this should reset your machine. You should have this info in your manual under troubleshooting. Please let me know how you make out. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

What will cause the washing machine to not spin fast enough to spin the clothes dry or not spin the fabric softener out of the agitator cup?


If your towels are coming out the dryest it is probably a problem with it being off balance. Did you make sure that the clothes are even placed in the washer. If you have a bunch of heavy stuff on one side and light stuff on the other side it could cause the same problem.

I have a Maytag Quiet Series 200. In the beginning of the cycle, it makes a weird 'whirrrring' noise that goes away right after the first wash cycle. It's getting water. It's very noticable and I worry...


I have a quiet series 300 and it does that, too. I think it just balances the load before washing and is normal. I found this in the manual:
Normal Sounds
Your new washer may make sounds your old one didn

NOISY DURING SPIN CYCLE


If this sound starts slow and gets faster till its helicopter sounding you probly have a verry worn spot on the drive belt when that spot goes around the pully it will thump the faster ti spins the more frequent the sound If you tilt the washer back you should be able to see the belt to examine it if this the problem
replace the belt
Hope this helps
