Maytag Bravos 300 Quiet Series MVWB700VQ0 - Banging Drum
Posted 01 January 2012 - 03:12 PM
Above series of washer is less than three years old and has been running great. The other day developed a banging sound in the front left corner between what seems to be the drum and outside metal case. It did this with a very small load and it was not out of balance. I did open the washer and redistribute the clothes so to eliminate that as a cause.
Also, any one have a manual/schematic or other document showing how I should take this thing apart to investigate?

Again, the banging sound seemed to come from the front left area. I don't see any signs of it actually hitting there and the suspension rods and bushing look fine all the way around.
The only thing I did find was the "padding" on the inside of the metal container had about a 1" worn spot where I could tell the drum had been hitting. It essentially is the same area the noise was coming from. Does anyone else think that could be the culprit? What do I replace that with? Can I use anything a little thicker?
Aside from loads being unbalanced, what else could cause the drum to say enough to wear out that padding?
