Seems that not only do I have a fridge that freezes food, now my washer is squealing when it goes into spin cycle from the wash cycle. Any Ideas what may cause that? I will get the man, and model when I get home later tonight and post those. The load is really light, only a pair of jeans and some socks and a shirt are in it.

Hi,

**now my washer is squealing when it goes into spin cycle from the wash cycle**

No noise during the agitation mode and the noise starts as soon as the washer goes into spin and stays there the whole spin mode?

** I will get the man, and model when I get home later tonight and post those**

Great! :)

Yes that is exactly what it does. Hopefully tonight when I get home I will get a chance to look up hte model number and get it posted. I cant remember if it is a maytag or not. Its one of those fancy ones that has auto temp control and a few other goodies, but nothing like the electronic ones that can wash a cat without getting it wet. :)

It is a Maytag Atlantis washer. MAV7600AWW. This started right after the wash cycle while it was draining.

Hi,

The most common spot/time on this washer for a squeek noise is when the spinning stops and the brake engages and the wash basket squeeks/squeals to a stop = new brake pad and stator ( which needs a special brake tool to replace! )....very common trouble maker!!

A noise -during- the spin out may be a bad drain pump, something caught in the drain pump, spin/tub bearing ( may see water leak as well ), motor slids sticking.

Some info on this style of an washer...

Actually the sound I am hearing is similiar to the brake squeal, but it starts the moment it goes into the spin cycle and continues on until it ends, then it will clunk and go into the next cycle just fine.

While I haven't heard one do this, it is possible to have the brake stick and not release properly during the spin/drain modes. Large center pulley underneath turns in one direction for agitation and when turned in the other direction the brake is suppose to be release and tub/washer spins.

OK, This weekend I will take a look. Can the parts be seen from underneath, or does the unit need to be taken apart?

All the pulleys and belt can be seen from the bottom of the washer.

I had the same issue, but I had one shirt in a small delicate cycle and while it was washing I heard a sqeal noise and went to check on it. The machine will not do anything now. I have checked the fuse box and all is good and I plugged something else in the outlet and it works fine. I tried all cycles and both spin and rise. There is also about 6 inches of water left in it also.

Ideas?
