Making Noises 
Maytag 2 belts top load washers


What to check when your washer is making noises 

If your Maytag top load washer is making noises in every one of the cycles that you tried it on.

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.

Taking apart: The first thing that you need to learn to be able to fix your Maytag top load washer, is how to remove any panel to get access to the parts inside of the washer. Once you learn this, it will be very easy to do most repair in the washer. 

The motor: The most common cause for the motor to make noises is worn out bearings. This motors are what is called throw away motors, in other words they are not repairable. If the bearings are bad, you will need to replace the motor.

The water pump: Same thing that the motor, if the impeller bearings wear out, the impeller will rub against the pump body and will get noisy.

The radial bearing: If the washer leaks water through stem & seal, the water will end up on top of the radial bearing and the bearing will get rusted and it will sound like an helicopter taking off. In this case you will need to replace the stem & seal kit, the tub bearing and the radial bearing too. 

The transmission: The internal parts of the transmission sometimes wear out causing the transmission to run noisy. The solution to this problem is replacing the transmission. There is a link to a video below that will show you how to remove and replace the transmission.

The damper pads: When the damper pads get unglued and fall out of place the complete tub assembly stars to ride metal to metal and the washer starts to shake all over the place. The solution to this problem is installing new damper pads.

The brake assembly: With time and usage the brake assembly may get noisy when the washer stops spinning and may need to be replace.
