Hi my 3 year old Bravos washer died last week and by the help of this site I found out it was a bad Shift Actuator. So I got one and replaced it last night then when I started a load all hell broke loose. Anytime is agitates it sounds like an horrible grinding or chainsaw starting up. I took the guard off and the pulley bolt is on tight so its not that, and again its a brand new Actuator on there so I am at a loss. Maytag of course wont help me without charging $100 to come look at it, at that price I can buy a new one for a $450. Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi,

Does it sound like this video:


If so, you will need a new Splutch Cam Kit.

Here's the Splutch Cam Kit for your model:

Video included in part link.

Let us know how it goes.

That did the trick! Thank you so much for the help you are truly doing Gods work haha. All in all it took me about 10 minutes to replace and hook the machine back up and saved me hundreds of dollars on repair men. Love this site and team.
