MT washer MAV6200AWW squeak and shake at stop
Posted 14 September 2012 - 08:22 AM
I went out on this customer's dryer; to service the vent, I had to go over the top of the washer. I inadvertently kneeled in the middle of the lid. Because of my kneeling, I had to lengthen the lid switch plug. Now, the customer claims this MT Atlantis didn't squeak and seize up the tub when the washer is stopped. This situation reminds me strongly of a WP direct-drive washer with dry pads on the spin tube. Does anyone have any experience with MT washers seizing like this; would my "over the top" on the lid have caused this? I'll take what you've got.
Thanks in advance,

only way I know to abate this is to remove and replace the rotor/stator ...I have had some luck cleaning the brake pad on the rotor and the mating surface on the stator with emory cloth, but it is a pain in the ass to access these ...may as well replace the snubber while yer in there...

This story is a perfect example of one of the reasons I stopped doing dryer vent installations. I'm too old and stiff to be climbing over appliances like a limbo dancer and, besides, it's not very interesting work and you can't charge enough for it to make it more interesting! If there's a weird dryer connection situation where I need to reconnect a dryer vent in a tight laundry closet as part of servicing the dryer itself, that's one thing-- gotta do whatcha gotta do. But installing or replacing dryer vents as stand-alone jobs? Those days are over.
