Maytag VMW Top Load Washer Model # MVWC300XW0 Serial # C12321403

 

Unit was making a horrible grinding noise in agitation only.  I replaced the gearcase, shift actuator, and the drive pulley/splotch kit. The new gearcase made an even louder grinding noise  during agitation than the old one.  This being a third party warranty call, the so called new gearcase was a reconditioned gearcase.  I thought Whirlpool said these gearcases were non repairable? 

 

What do you think the chance is the so called "reconditioned" gearcase was bad?  I replaced everything in the washer that would cause this grinding noise but the agitator, because I have yet to see a bad agitator make this much noise. Has anyone ever run into this before?

Drive pulley was brand new, unless you mean the gearcase part.

OMG, you are in such trouble now, STW! Just wait till Brother Durham sees this topic with no model number in the title. I pity the fool who's in the topic when that happens. Hiroshima? Nagasaki? Child's play! How 'bout Durham Tsunami? Yeah, that's what I'm talking about. Mmm-hmm.

I did not realize I had to have the model and serial number in the topic heading. It's in my post. Now I can't edit it. I've been a member in good standing, I'm surprised you haven't made me a moderator or given me special priveleges yet.

Damn! Why have y'all forsaken me? I haven't met my thread deletion quota today and here y'all go running interference. And it's a thread started by one of the best techs around. Don't yall realize we get bonus points for deleting an improper thread started by a top-of-the-line tech who has been around here for a long time? And you call yourselves my brothers.. Ha!

Unless I can find another like this one (or how it was before "somebody" edited it) , by my calculations it's gonna take at least 7.5 grasshopper thread deletions just to make up what you guys cost me.

btw, to all you brothers who've had threads deleted, moved, etc by Mods, remember it aint personal, it's points. So, go ahead, keep starting threads without the model in the title, or the model and type of appliance in the manual request forum, especially those big juicy long winded multi-paragraph posts that take forever to write... come on, help a brotha out... gotta build up my score.
