If your Performa top load washer by Maytag is making noises

You will need to check the following parts until you find out the part that needs to be replace to fix the washing machine.

Here I am going to give you a brief description of the parts you need to check, and below you will have the links to the pages with the videos that will show you how the repair is done.

Brake Assembly: If the problem with your Performa washer is that is making a screeching noise when it finishes the spin cycle or the drum is turning when the washer is agitating, the problem could be a worn out brake lining.

Snubber Ring: If the problem with your Performa washer is that the tub assembly goes out of balance no matter how small is the load and it hits the cabinet. The problem could be a worn out snubber ring.

The snubber ring is made of a plastic like Teflon. The purpose of this ring is to keep the drum assembly on the middle when the washer is spinning.

A lot of people replace the drum assembly supporting springs thinking that this will take care of the problem, to find out that the problem is not the springs, but it is the snubber ring.

Pump: If the problem with your Performa washer is that is not draining the water from the tub, is leaking water, or is making noises like metal rubbing against metal, the problem could be a bad pump.

The impeller bearings inside of the pump wear out in a few years of use, and the pump start leaking water and making metal to metal grinding noises.

The Motor: If the problem with your Performa washer is that the motor is not starting to make the washer agitate or spin, the problem could be a bad motor and it has to be replace.
