Hello, I just replaced the bearing kit for my Maytag Bravos and everything went smooth. Ran the first load of laundry today and all seemed normal. On the second load we noticed a bit of a high-pitched squeal which we had not heard before. (knew the bearing kit was bad based on the "jet engine" sound during spin cycle or even just spinning it by hand it gave a grinding noise). Any idea as to what I should check or adjust given this is a different noise. Assuming it is related to the repair, but asking the experts!

Hi,

If that high-pitched squeal was not there before you replaced it, then its probably something you did or didn't do properly when you installed the new bearing kit, recheck your installation of it.

Here's the tub seal and drive shaft repair kit:

Here's the bearing and seal tool:
