Default Grinding noise and burnt electrical
Model Number: Mav6000aww   Brand: Maytag   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have been hearing a lound grinding noise the last couple of times I used my washer. The next time I used it ,it made the same noise and the water wouldn't drain. Tried running it one more time so it would drain and istarted to smell burnt electrical. I immediately turned it off and have been trying to fix it. The belt seems fine and all of the pulleys turn with ease. Any thoughts?

Hello,

Tilt the washer back and remove the belt. Check how freely the pump pulley is moving in both directions. If it does not move freely, replace the pump.

- The drain pump Part number: 35-6465

Part number: 35-6465



Here are the breakdown diagrams and Parts for Maytag MAV6000AWW Washer - AppliancePartsPros.com

I have checked all of the pulleys. They all move freely in both directions.

Remove the hose connecting the drain pump to the tub and check for a foreign objects inside the hose and pump.

Remove the front panel and run the washer to pinpoint the noise.
