    Default Maytag with sqeak

    Opinion on this Maytag model MAV208DAWW
    Did not make a noise with a small load of just water. I sold it then got a complaint about a noise. I had tried the machine outside the shop with a large or super load of just water Cannot say for sure I tried it with a load of laundry.


    Anyway opinions on what the problem is? Only does this in agitate cycle not in spin.
    It does seem to be indexing. What would make this noise? Scrub Total loss? Snubber ring? Have a feeling I have a parts machine.
    Would the pivot spring being missing cause this? Would it evene agitate with this spring. I did not see one on it.

    Brb, have to put it on YouTube first

    Lube the brake pad as a test. -Suppose- to be a dry brake but it sounds like it is slipping a bit during the agitation.
    Lube the motor pivots also. Lube the brake spline and the pad and see what happens.

    Uh, got pictures of the brake pads?? Not familiar with them on a Maytag built Maytag. I have seen what is called a brake assembly I think down on the bottom with the thrust bearing?

    Talking about on the brake rotor on thjis one?

    I did wonder if the brake might have something to do with it indexing a little. Did you notice it indexing, Jeff?

    Thanks

    P.S Lubing these will make it quit slipping??

    This is an Admiral/Norge/MagicChef built Maytag.

    #13 is the brake pad
    #14 is the snubber ( keep that clean and oil/dust/lube free )
    #15 is the brake stator.


    We are just hoping to stop the noise or at least to see if that is where it is coming from.

    All is done from the bottom, lay the washer back and access from below.

    Hmm, so do I now. Not sure what happened.

    Anyway, I was asking if I can do this by just laying the machine back, or do I need to remove the basket and evreything, turn it upside down, remove the thrust washer, brake sping and and all that.

    No brake tool here. I will have to look that up. I have removed the snubber on these before. That is the extent of my experience in this area with these machines.

    ?? Is it necessary?

    I guess I should have asked is it necessary on this model.
