Maytag Performa Washer makes loud squeaking sound
« on: May 14, 2010, 10:46:19 AM »
Hi
This washer makes a loud squeaking sound in agitate cycle. If there is a small load it usually won't make the sound, medium to large loads it will. Is this the hub assymbley wearing out? I checked the belt and the clutch was clean and dry.
Thanks for looking

Model PAVT910A

What is the model number of the washer?

The full model number can be found on the model/serial number tag that is located on the washer.

JW...... I did check the pump turns fine, the sound starts when there are large loads, sounds like something rubbing together makes a high pitch sound.

does it also make the same squeak at the end of the spin cycle? I bet it is your brake slipping.
