You could flip the washer upside down and pour a little motor oil around the Brake package and turn the pulley to release the brake so that oil can get in the brake liner and that would stop the squeak.

i don't think you can put oil in that brake package.  Thats a dry brake, and the washer relies on it to hold tight in agitate.

When you gonna learn about JW and some of his suggestions? His philosophy is if you don't know do it anyway and see what happens. Someone will do some damage one day if they  pay attention...

never loan out $100 tools either...bad juju

Dang It I have read somewhere in maytag lit that you oil those brake packages when they are squeaky but I caint find it as usual. I used that tool to revive a bunch of drowned maytag washer after hurricane Katrina.

Way back during the Dependable Care days, you could get by with oiling the brake package. It was not the same design as the Herrin platform machines (Performa, Atlantis, or anything with 1 belt)

As schaffer said, oil will allow the stator to slip, causing the tub to spin during agitate. The solution is to :
1. Spend money on a new stator
2. Take the stator off and sand the inner ring till it does not shine any more.

p.s. The stator is the outside cover with the 6 black screws. Unfortunately, it's under 200# pressure.

If you ain't got the tool, you ain;t fixin either one.
