My washer has started making a loud roaring noise during the spin cycle, increasing in frequency and noise level as the speed increases. Sounds like a bearing going bad. I looked through the tub assembly diagram but did not see any separate bearings. Is this part of a higher level assembly?
You would want to replace the tub assembly for your unit. The bearings are available separately but would need to get a tool that can only be used for bearing replacement and would be around the same cost. The part number for the tub is W10193886. If you want the bearing, the part number is W10435302 and the tool is part number W10447783.
Have error code f 51. Have unplugged machine and was able to cancel the cycle but as soon as a cycle begins the same code comes up.
Answer Hello Paige. F then 51 flashes when there is a motor rotor
position sensor (RPS) failure or lower harness
problem. You will need to replace the sensor W10178988 and harness W10137697 on the unit.
Does not agitate.
Answer Hello John. You need to check the agitate cam 280161 and see if it is bad and needs to be replaced.
My washer makes a funny noise when its washing and it also keeps going to ul when it starts to spin. What could this be?
Answer Hello Mar,
This sounds like a dropped phase in the motor. This is most commonly caused by a poor electrical connections between the control and the motor and/or RPS. Many require the harness W10137697 to correct the issue. The units' self-diagnostic mode can be used to diagnose the issue but most of the fault codes will basically state a poor electrical connection between these parts. Of course, the RPS W10178988 is another common failure as is the control board W10372181.
I can not balance the washer no matter what I try.
Answer Hello Art. Based on the information you provided, you will need to replace the suspension W10189077 on the unit.
Hello; My maytag bravos top load washer is not happy while in the spin cycle. It makes a loud noise. Slow at first then gets louder, then lower, and higher. The bad is getting worse, and worse. What do you recommend? Thank you have a nice day....
If the noise that you are hearing is a loud grinding/ roaring type noise then the issue would most likely be in the tub bearings in which you would want to replace the outer tub of the unit which is part number W10193886. The other thing that you would want to check is the stator and rotor to make sure that there is no damaged to them.
