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.
My washing machine makes a loud noise during the spin cycle . What would cause this and what should I look for to repair?
Loud noise during the spin cycle will most likely be caused by a faulty spin bearing. With your unit there are 2 options to repair this. The first option is to replace the outer tub which comes with the bearing and the shaft and is part number W10193886. The other option is to replace the bearing and shaft assembly. The part numbers for the bearing kit is part number W10435302 and the bearing tool needed is part number W10447783.
The washer makes a LOUD noise when spinning and goes out of balance unless it is a tiny load. Towels and jeans are impossible... Is it a bearing issue? If so, what part(s) do I need?
Answer Mamawee, The loud noise in the spin cycle would indicate a tub bearing issue. Because of the "drag" created by the worn bearings, it could also explain the "UL" and "DC" error codes in the display. At present you have the option of replacing the outer tub assembly W10193886 which will have the bearings, seal and shaft included. Your other option is to order the Bearing and Seal kit W10435302 and the tool W10447783 to remove and install the bearings in the original outer tub.
