Customer Question
I have a Maytag...

I have a Maytag Bravos washer. I really like it although I have a problem with sheets. It diesn’t Matter how I load them ,one in the bottom,other clothes next, and then the other sheet. Or sheets first, or only sheets in the load. One sheet always wraps itself around everything else in the washer. It looks like a mushroom from the top. It’s reall tight and hard to separate. I took pictures but I don’t see anyplace to include them. What can I do? Marilyn Reid

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Bravos quiet series 300. About 5 yeRs but it has always done it. I just don’t think the clothes inside are getting clean. I did have someone come fromOwes when it was new but they had no idea what to do.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I could

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Can’t think of anything. We took it all apart a year ago as it kept saying Overload. When there was nothing in it. Turned out to be a stuck bushing

These photos of the sheets hoe many sheets are in the washer when you took the photos?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Two atop and a fitted sheet. I never put more than that many sheets in a load
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 6 months ago

And do you have this issue with pant or anything else other then sheets?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No other issues. Other than I’m never sure there is enough water in the washer. But U guess that’s what makes it HE. Also sometimes it’s the top sheet and sometimes it’s the bottom sheet that dies that. But it always does it
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 6 months ago

And has it always done this or did it just start doing this?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Alwas. I had. Tech from Lowe’s come and look at it when it was new. And he didn’t have a clue. I think he was new and clueless anyways
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 6 months ago

Lowes does not have appliance repair techs. he was probably just an installer for Lowes.

and this unit is now 5 years old?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 6 months ago

ok have you ever called Maytag and complained about it or had anyone else look at the unit?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
N. Didn’t think about that
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 6 months ago

ok I suspect the inner tub is not locking in during a spin mode and the agitator is moving separate from the tub.

And you either have a bad inner tub or the hub assembly under the tub is bad not allowing the agitator to lock in place during a spin mode.

The inner tub will need to be removed and then look at the hub assembly to see if it is stripped .

Is this something you feel you can do?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
it’s something we can do. We had it all apart last winter for a bad bushing and still have the jry rigged tool Dave made to get the tub out
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 6 months ago

ok ok so let`s pull the tub and look at the hub assembly to see if the hub is worn or something is not allowing the inner basket to drop down and mesh with the hub .

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Sorry. Can’t do it right now as I have to go to work and Dave is in bed with the flu. I’lllet you know when we do it

ok no problem!
