Question about Maytag EPIC MFW9600S

2 Answers

I have a Maytag front load Mod. # MFW9600SQ1 and It is making a grinding sound when the drum is rotating. I took off the back and belt to see if it was the motor but it is still making the sound. Is there any parts inside the drum area that can come loose? Is there and easy way to remove the bearing at the rear of the drum to check if that is the problem? If you could provide me with a link or a DL for the Manual that would help as well. Thanks

    Ya i was able to access the belt and the drum from behind. I took the belt off the motor and rear Tub and turned the tub by hand from the inside to see if the noise was still there. It was so I figure it is ether the rear bearing or something is in between the inner part of the tub and the tub housing. I had my son turn the drum as i listened to the rear bearing and it seemed to me the noise was coming from somewhere on top, not from the bearing. I am hoping it is not the bearing because it looks like it is all part of the rear tub assembly with is very expensive to replace.

    Thanks for the comment

Is it making the noise with the belt removed ?? If so it is the pump has an obstruction in it most likely. As for the bearing it is not an easy job . The whole drum assembly must be removed from the case and separated.

    The bearing and seal come as part of the rear tub assembly.

I have the older model , but shouldnt be much difference .
Change the belt ,.
access to drum is from the front , you need to take the door off and than the front pannel .
You can check motor for the noise . you can access it from the back and drop the beld , secure aside of wheel and turn it on .The noise could come also from the tensioning wheel . Otherwise there is nothing else . there are also two wheels supporting drum from the back .
And thats it ..hope it helps ivan

I had my son turn the drum while i was listening at the rear to check the drum bearing. The sound seemed to be coming from inside the drum, something in between the drum and the outer tub housing. I hope it is not the bearing because that is all part of the rear housing and is rather expensive to replace.

Maytag Dryer- Drum not rotating (belt and motor both work)


I surely do hope this fixes it all.
The pulley that fell apart is supposed to. Well, not quite. It is not fastened inside the machine, and comes off easily. It is the belt tensioner. It fits into 2 slots on the bottom steel panel of the machine (The base)
You will be finding it is a pain in the neck to put back on, but you can do so. The belt goes with the grooves toward the drum, not away from it. The belt goes in a S shape around the motor pulley and the tensioner pulley. One you put the tensioner back in it's place nin the two slots, you will push (or pull) on it against the spring arm to "bend" it so as to get the belt back on.
Be blessed.

When dryer is drying clothes it is making a loud grinding noise. Is this the belt or is the motor going bad? Maytag Centennial


the maytag has a bearing made if a cloth material that is at the front of the drum. when this wears down drum is grating off the metal drum support, hence the grinding sound. the bearing is fairly straight forward to replace.

Dryer is making a grinding sound once ever rotation.


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
Your problem sounds like drum rollers is in need of lubrication.
If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

I have a Maytag front load Mod. # MFW9600SQ1. When


This is actually a fill error, it appears when the tub should be filling and is not being sensed. Make sure that both hot and cold water is turned on. Since you do see water coming into the tub this is an issue related to your pressure switch. It sounds odd but this can also be caused by a siphoning drain so check to make sure your washers drain hose has only a little over a foot into the drain otherwise this may cause it to siphon and throw up the same error. If the water is on and the drain hose checks fine then I would guess your gonna have to replace the pressure switch but right now my money is on the drain hose being shoved to far down in the drain pipe. Hope this helps.

Dryer making noise and quits running


You may need to replace the drum rollers and front drum glides. The motor definitely is bad and should be replaced.
A Maytag dryer is worth investing the repair cost.

I HAVE DRYER GE MOD #DWSR488EB2WW SER#ZG743601A ***HAVE GRINDING NOISE. RELPACED THE BEARING IN THE BACK. BELT SEEMS OK. PUT BACK TOGETHER NOISE CONTINUED. THE NOISE HAS A SLIGHT GRIND/SCRAPE IN ONLY PART...


The most likely cause is the front drum supports. There are 3 or 4 teflon strips (about a half inch wide and 2 inches long) on the top of the front panel that the dryer drum glides on. When these wear down, the drum can scrape on the plastic that holds them or on the metal frame around the door frame. Another possibility is if the drum touches the dryer exhaust vent pipe, most often only if the dryer is vented out the bottom of the dryer and the vent pipe has shifted up just a bit, allowing it to contact a spot on the drum with each revolution.
