Maytag Washer
« on: January 10, 2011, 01:02:32 AM »
The washing machine just start making noise only when it washing. Not sure where yet, but it sound a rubbing noise at the moment. Pull the front panel, and trying to narrow down where the sound coming from.

Any suggestion or has anyone ever hear of this before. Not much to go on to track it down.

Model A612

Thanks

Usually from the upper agitator bearing inside the top area of the transmission. It happens during agitation, and sounds like a moaning noise almost, consistent with the  oscillations of the agitator. Does this resemble your situation? If so Maytag makes a Shaft KIt
If not, what part of the cycle do you  hear it?

Thanks for the reply. It start making the noise, as soon as the wash cycle begins. I don't hear the sound when it is in spin. I am trying to trace the sound location, but have not found it yet.

If it is this bear, how is it to replace it? Never pull the transmission on it yet.

Thanks

I was looking at it tonight, it look like the agitator is not turn back and fore very easy like it use too. My question is how hard is it to replace the bearing, and is it better to keep this old machine going or replace it. Have to say that new washer don't seem to hold up as well the older ones.

Unless you are in love with it, replace it. Yes, it was the landmark machine that Maytag made and it  will  never be duplicated, but a new tranny, boot seal and bearing  costs more than a new machine would

I was looking at some diagrams, is their way to tell it something like the tub bearing, and not the transmission.

I notice post shaft kit, but can  I just buy the bearings, and of course gaskets etc... I have been searching, I am not seeing the bearing for it .

Serial number and last 2 letters will tell which transmission you have. That will tell what you can or can't do. The bearings in the transmission are not a serviceable part. Depending on type of transmission will determine if it can be repaired. I have only seen WHOLE transmissions for sale not parts. Remember this company was purchased by Whirlpool after yours was made.

No parts you need for this transmission are available. I prefer Speed Queen for new. Closest to Maytag as far as heavy duty.
