I have a whirlpool top-load washer, model wtw4800xq1, it is making a loud noise when its in the middle of a cycle. The agitator is spinning, what is causing this? Ive read about a drum bearing bad, does this sound correct and do you sell that bearing?
Answer J., It doesn't sound like a tub bearing issue. It would make noise in the spin cycle, where that the issue. In your style washer, the issue is more likely to the actuator/shifter W10006355 loosing it's position or the "splutch" cam kit W10315818 slipping and trying to drive the gear case and spin basket at the same time.
I have a 2 Year Old Maytag Centennial Topload Washer that makes a loud grinding noise during Agitation & Spin. Therefore, what part's should I check.
Answer Hello Rockinrobin,
You will want to check the motor coupling 285852A and clutch 8299642 to make sure that they are good. If they both check ok then you will need to replace the transmission W10140307.
Washer makes loud continuous grinding noise on agitation cycle only?
Answer Hello Joe. Make sure nothing is stuck in between the tubs. If not, and the noise comes from the motor, you will need to replace the motor W10249628 in the unit.
