I have a Maytag MVWC565FW washer with an agitator. It is only 6 months old. Recently, a noise started in the washer. This noise happens ONLY during agitation, and does not happen with every load. It is a loud rubbing/squeaking/grinding noise. It is not a long-lasting sound, just a short sound, like rubber on painted metal or something. You hear it as the agitator goes back and forth, so it only lasts as long as its turning in one direction. Some squeaks are louder than others. Sometimes it will start during the wash cycle, then stop later on. Cant find any pattern (load size or composition).

Ideas?

Hi,

Can you please update your thread from Oct. of 2018: LSWS305ST LG Wall oven Thermostat AND thermal fuse Thanks.

For your washer, you'll need to make a video of the noise with your Apple or Android phone, then upload the video to Youtube and post the Youtube link here. Or share your video per Google Drive, Dropbox, or Microsoft OneDrive and post the share link here.
