My washing machine doesn't spin all the water out of my clothes. I can still squeeze the water out of them. The washer spins but I don't think it's spinning fast enough. when it's done spinning it makes a loud noise when it shuts off
Answer Hello Heather,
You will want to check to make sure that the pump is not clogged or damaged. When you pull the belt of the pump it should spin freely. If not spinning freely then pull the pump and make sure that nothing has gotten into the pump clogging it. If not then the bearings on pump are bad. Also you want to make sure that the thrust bearing is fully engaging the brake and lifting it properly with no drag.
I don't understand the response I got for:
"This unit squeals when it stops. Without the agitator being in it does not squeal. The agitator appears to have a bearing in it that feels like it's missing a ball, but I cannot figure out how to get it out or if it comes out (pressed in).
The washer stops as it should and runs properly though all cycles, but you recommended, "You will need to order and replace the brake 35-6714, stator 35-6918, and snubber 21002026 on the unit." However, the picture associated with the answer is the complete agitator.
In the top of this agitator, where the bolt goes through, is what I think is a bearing that feels like it is missing a ball. It appears to be a pressed-fit bearing which is why I thought I might have to replace the complete agitator assembly.
Please help me understand why I would replace the brake, stator and snubber when everything works properly except for a "squeal" that disappears when the agitator is removed.
Answer Hello Buddy. There is no ball bearing used in the agitator. If you remove the cap and then remove the bolt and remove the agitator from the unit, the two sections of the agitator will unsnap from each other. As for the noise you were having, it is very common for the Performa models to have the noise you described and it is associated with the parts recommended. When you remove the agitator, you remove the stress on the brake and rotor, and the noise will go away. Keep in mind, Agitator is on one end of the shaft and brake is on the other.
I have replaced both the belt and the thrust bearing and pully my machine still will not spin out. I can hold the switch with the lid open and stop the spin by hand if it is spinning at all.
Answer Hello Kevin,
When you replaced the thrust bearing there was 2 washers in the kit. You may have installed the smaller one which may not allow the brake to lift enough to spin properly. You could have put the larger one in which could cause the same problem. It may be necessary to put both on in order to lift the brake rotor high enough to allow unit to spin properly.
Have a maytag washer need to know how I can tell if the brake is gone on , model Mac7650a
Answer Thomas, We presume you have a MAV7650AWW, MTG automatic washer. The easiest way to test the brake is to start the unit in the regular cycle at the final spin / drain portion. Aloow the washer to "ramp up" to the high speed spin( 60 to 90 seconds) then raise the lid and listen,for a squealing or rumbling noise, this would indicate excess wear to the brake rotor pad. When you raise the lid, the washer spin basket should "stop" in 3 to 5 revolutions, if the brake is engaging properly.If there is a noise, or the spin tub coasts to a stop, you'll need to dismantle the thrust bearing assembly 12002213 and check, clean and lube the brake rotor splines 35-6714 to insure proper rotor operation.
Washer agitates, but will not spin. The water pumps out and motor and pullies run but transmission/tub won't turn. Is the brake bad or something else?
Answer Jeff, The most likely issue is the thrust bearing assembly 12002213. This component, locks and unlocks the brake rotor, which in turn causes the transmission gears to lock for the spin cycle. You also want to check the drive belt for excessive wear, and the motor and slide plate for free movement. Thanks
Hi, my washing machine on spin cycle shake. Perhaps the problem will be the transmission?. Thank you very much for the attention.
Answer Hello Cesar. If the unit is getting of balance and shaking bad during spin cycle, you will need to order and replace the snubber 21002026 in the unit.
My washer was not spinning the water out, it would spin, stop, start over again. I replaced the thrust bearing, it seems a little better but now the tub wants to spin during the wash cycle. When I turn the pulley counterclock wise the brake doesnt release, and the shaft spins freely. Any more suggestions?
Answer Weasel, a new brake rotor 35-6714 may be a good idea, you also want to clean up the internal surface of the stator 35-6918 with emory cloth and wash out the assembly with rubbing alcohol. You also want to clean and lubricate the splines on the rotor, so it moves freely on the transmission case. You also want to order additional washers 35-2082 and 35-2132 to achieve the proper tolerances when you re install the thrust bearing kit ( you may need to add or swap) thick vs thin washers,etc. In order to remove the brake stator, you will need to purchase a brake removal tool 12002012 , or take one of the screws out of the stator assembly and take it to a hardware store and purchase two screws the same size and thread pattern, but 2 to 3 inches long, so you can remove the stator safely.
