Maytag Centennial SS# C51534247 Model# MVWC415EWO we

Customer Question
Maytag Centennial SS# *****...

Maytag Centennial SS# ***** Model# ***** we purchased this washer from Lowes in Lake Wales FL. It was returned to the store by a customer because it made too much noise

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

We bought it some time in Nov 2015. We don't have the receipt. Lowes said there was nothing wrong with washer. When the washer is agitating it cause the lights to pulse. This has been going on for some time. We finally had a election come this last Tuesday & he couldn't find anything wrong with our wiring. He thought it sounded like the motor was dragging. So we need to know how much the cost would be. We sure hate to buy a new washing machine. Hope you can help!

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

We don't thank so. We could probably get some one else if it will save us money.

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

No we think that is it.

How do we know that is the problem? Of course we will need the link. How much will it cost to have a technician come to our house & if that is the problem what would the labor cost be?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 2 months ago

We do not know if that is the issue .

I`m only going off of what information you have given me .

That $163.20 motor if you call a servicer in to order it and replace it the part will cost you approx $300.00 and as for the labor that will depend upon what the average labor rate is in your area .

I`m in Michigan and the labor rate is $125.00 for the first hour and $100. 00 for every hour after that .

The link below is to the part you will need from a highly recommended company rated A+ with the Better Business Bureau.
They offer a 100% money back guarantee, EVEN ON INSTALLED ELECTRICAL PARTS, for an entire year!
They are the only company to allow returns on installed parts for a refund and offer a FULL ONE YEAR WARRANTY!

And here is a YouTube video showing how to replace the part .
