I think normally the problem is caused by the Brake Rotor Lining Assy (item #50 on the diagram). It has a brake lining facing down that makes contact with item # 51. It turned out that I had grease & grime on these parts, thus the brake is not taking grip & causing squeaky noise. All I had to do was to clean the parts & put them back. I bought the part (#50) - P/N 2347192, but it was a whirlpool part that didn't fit my Magic Chef. Some parts fit both brands, but this 1 didn't. Here is the procedure:1. Unplug washer.2. Move unit away from wall.3. Tilt it back far enough to work underneath. Support the front with lumber.4. Pull out cap (#58)5. Remove ring clip (#57)6. slide out everything from #53 down. Keep them in same order for re-installation.7. There are 6 ea screws (#53) that hold item #52 to item #45. It is spring loaded by item #47. Item #53 has a 5/16" hex head. Use 3 ea. #10-24 hex head screw, at least 1.25" long to assist in compress/decompress the spring tension. You can buy them from a hardware store.8. Take out every other screw (#53) & replace them with these 3 longer screws for remove/re-installation of item #52. 9. Take out the remaining 3 ea #52 screws.10. Go around & back off each of the 3 longer screws to decompress the spring.11. Remove item #52, & everything from #48 down will come out.12. Clean or replace what you need.13. Do the reverse to put everything back.14. There is an item within #59 that looks like a miniature bearing. I would put some grease on that & on item #55.
