Maytag MHWE300 High Speed Knocking Sound

Postby davepeddi » Mon Jun 04, 2018 1:04 pm

It starts to make this sound when hitting high speed spin. Thought it might have been a broken shock. It's not that nor anything I can see. Model MHWE300VW00

Any help appreciated.

Hi,

I will have a listen to this at work as my home computer has no sound.

Hi,

Doesn't sound like bearings or such.
I'd eliminate things like remove the power wire for the drain pump and turn on the spin...noise still there?...put wire back on.

It almost sounds like something is loose and vibrating. Maybe even check the pulley at the back middle for being loose.

Thanks for the suggestions.

It sounds (no pun intended) like it's not a usual problem.

I love getting the "unusual" problems.

The noise definitely is not something I have heard much at all.
