Machine is operating normally, but after water is in and begins to agitate, it make a loud banging like noise as it agitates. Any ideas? Sometimes it squeals loudly when it stops too.

A.j.c. for Model Number Maytag MAV5000AWW

ANSWER Hello A.J.C., These are notorious for brake noise, and I believe this is what you are hearing in this case. You can spray a small amount of WD-40 into the brake assembly to quieten it down or replace the brake rotor and lining assembly 35-6714 and the brake stator 35-6918. If you replace the brake parts, you can expect the noise to return shortly. If you spray the brake with WD-40, you can expect the tub to take a long time to stop after a spin.
