do you have a video on how to replace the lower bearing on this maytag washer #mav208daww and do you sell the spanner wrench for this model, thank you.
Answer Hello John! Unfortunately the spanner wrench for this model number is not available. You can try finding a big enough pipe wrench to go around the nut and tap it off. I've sent you a copy of the service manual for reference on how to remove and install the part. Thanks!
My washer is making a loud grinding noise during the spin cycle.
The washer is a Maytag Legacy bought in 2007.
Would it be bearing? If so, what part number, and do other parts need to be replaced at the same time?
With a loud grinding noise you will first want to check the drain pump to make sure that it is not turning hard and that the bearings are not coming out of it. If this checks ok then you will want to replace the tub bearing W10219156.
This machine was making a loud noise while spinning and then stopped spinning all together.
Answer Hello Jim. Check and see if the belt is burnt into. If so, you will need to order and replace the tub seal W10219156 in the unit and the belt. It sounds like the bearing is bad.
I have and intermittent squeal during the agitation cycle only. I have replaced both the agitator and bearing but no success in stopping the squeal. Do you think it is the transmission or something else?
Answer Bruce, It's most likely something else, like the thrust bearing assembly 12002213 if the cam or bearing is worn or distorted, and out of tolerance, the brake rotor will remain partially engaged and make a squeak noise in the agitate cycle. Also check the belt 22003483 for a worn or burnt spot, and the motor pulley for the same as well.
My washer is making a loud noise during the wash and spin cycle. It sounds like a loud humming or very fast clicking noise. Is my lower bearing going out or something different, and if it is, would I need to buy a spanner wrench to replace it?
Answer Hello Sergio,
The pump 35-6780 requires no spanner wrench to replace. I believe a 5/16 inch socket and a 3/8 inch socket are needed in addition to the 5/16 for the drain hose clamp removals. Some of these may require a pair of pliers to remove the drain hoses from the pump, but I can't remember but a few that has the pinch type clamps on them. Most have the automotive style hose clamps on them which are much easier to work with. Be sure to unplug the unit before beginning!
