Amana Washer -

Amana washer - ALW780QAW -

Purchased 09/2001 - Many problems, many service calls. Have spent almost as much on service calls as original price.

On the last 2 service calls, the tech greased what he called the thrust washer as it was noisy. I was not here. Don't know what type of grease or how to do this. Do you have a diagram and could you talk/write me through this.

The noise is so loud you can hear it outside the home.

Also, with all the problems with this unit, are you aware of any massive recalls on this model?

Thank you for any direction you can give me.

what kind of a noise is it,and when does it occur?  if it is present during both agitation and spinning,it may have nothing to do with the thrust bearing and may be something like a nail,or bra support wire caught in the pump-this can make quite a dramatic noise.
