Neptune top loader is making a high pitch whistle sound.
« on: January 21, 2013, 12:49:04 AM »
Maytag Neptune model FAV6800AW top loader is making a high pitch whistle sound during rinse cycle. And really loud during wash cycle.
I really can't tell where the moise is coming from. I am guessing that it is either the water valve or the clutch. Do any of your world renowned techs have any idea as to where I should start? Is there a service manual that I may get for this model?

Thanks in advance!
Richard

Hi,

Service manual sent via PM.

Is it noisy during the whole wash cycle or just when it's filling with water?
Is it noisy at all during the spin cycle?
Hope you find our site helpful.

That manual is for a front loader. I have a top loader.


Thank you AJ!

I just double checked the service manual link I sent you via PM, it sure seems correct to me.

16022808 Maytag Top Load Neptune Washer Service Manual

I have attached a image of the service manual cover that I'm looking at from the link I sent, it's not correct?

It can also be download here.

The whine might something in the impeller of the electric pump. Have you checked that?

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL

Thank you AJ, that second manual is the correct one.
I think after I get my taxes here in a few weeks I will buy that nice DVD manual set you have. That will always come in handy!


Thanks again!
Richard
