I had to turn the washer on the side to see the motor pulley was broken. I couldn't find the part locally; they said it was no longer available/manufactured. I went online and ordered it from PartSelect.com I live in Alaska and it arrived 5 days later. I did an easy install and only needed an Allen wrench to remove the old part and put on the new one and 2 new drive belts. The washer works better than it has in several years.

Washer was very noisey on the agitation cycle.

You'll be working on the very bottom of the washer. Remove the Phillips-head screw on the bottom, center pulley, then remove the washer and serrated pulley stop. Turn the pulley to unthread it from the shaft. The brake rotor bearing will be on top of the pulley. Remove it by hand (not a press fit) and reinstall the new bearing in the same orientation. Thread the pulley back onto the shaft to the original depth. Reinstall the serrated pulley stop, washer and screw.

Located leak. Removed part. After entering model and serial numbers located necessary part order number. Received quickly and had everything back in working order immediately! Please note when working with scaled and lime build-up on parts, I completely clean surrounding areas and necessary related parts with "lime-away" prior to new part installation!!!

Cracked Water Inlet Valve

I ordered the part. Watched the video and did the repair. I removed the cover plate on the washer, removing the screws. I then, removed the broken water inlet valve and replaced it with the new one. I placed the cover plate back onto the rear of the washer and "VOILE", it was done. I am a divorced mother of three, who has never attempted to do any type of home repairs, however, the way PartSelect has set up the website, it made it easy to determine what part I needed and provided me with a video which gave me step by step instructions on how to repair it. I even posted my victory on Facebook! Thanks PartSelect.

The repair went well.I had to replace the seal under the tub.The video was the key to my success,I did not have a spanner wrench,I don't think it would have helped anyway,The nut was corroded I had to drill holes and chisel it apart after that it was no problem.

I did an internet search for a leaking washer and came across this web site.I looked under my washer model and it showed the repair parts plus it has a video of a repairman doing the job.The video was none the less the best help I could ever imagine.Tools needed and how to do the job a step at a time.The parts came to my door in two days via regular shipping method.I also purchased the special SPANNER WRENCH on eBay for about 10 bucks and it showed up the same day as my parts.The job took me about a hour and now my washer works like it should with no leaks.Thanks to Parts Select I highly recommend this site and their my new lifesaver. Ciao, Steve M

Water was leaking from the bottom of machine

  • Customer: William from Lusby MD
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours

After watching the repair on the video, I was confident that I could complete this job. The only tool I did not have was the special wrench for the retaining nut. I would recommend changing out the Bearing along with the seal. Due to the proximity of the seal, the bearing will most likely fail about the same time. The inner and outer tubs in my machine needed a thorough cleaning unlike the pre-cleaned demonstration washer in the video. A cheap plastic putty knife was great tool to scrape off the 14 years of detergent and lime sludge on the tubs. Allow yourself additional time to get everything clean as you disassemble the washer. The only snag I ran into was removing the corroded aluminum retaining nut. A cold chisel and hammer cut it off without much problem and a new nut was supplied with the kit. My old Maytag washer is now running like a champ and with no leaks.

First I replaced the drain pump with no positive result so I consulted the adviser and looked at the probability schedule. Ordered the parts and watched the video again and replaced the injector valve and nozzle. Washer no longer leaks.

Worn drive and pump belts

Replacing both belts was very easy. The belts slipped off the pulleys with no tools required. It took less than ten minutes to change them including tilting the washer back for access. The only reason to take the front cover of the cabinet off was to check belt tension and vacuum out the interior.

I followed the directions given me from parts select. I used the instructional YouTube videos. Both gave me the courage to do this project myself. The 35 year old wash machine works perfect !

The hot water solenoid had failed

  • Customer: Gardner from Victor NY
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Because the washer was old, 27 years, I actually ordered a new machine but after doing so was able to get the old washer to pump out the water. It had overfilled and spilled water on the floor. The next time I ran the washer using "warm" setting the hot water inlet solenoid failure was evident. I checked voltage at the solenoid and it was getting power so figured I'd try ordering a $30 part. In a couple of days it showed up and after less than :30 minutes I had the washer running again. It would have taken less time but a screw stripped out and I had to locate a replacement. I'd definitely recommend PartSelect. Oh, we cancelled the replacement washer and figured the Maytag repairman could resume his slumber!

Machine stopped running.

Actuator spring for the lid switch broke. Removed the lid by prying it from the top of the machine. The lid is secured by two plastic balls on either side. Removed the actuator switch screws and slid the actuator assembly out over the washer drum. Replaced the spring and reassembled the actuator to the machine. Put vaseline on each plastic ball to hold them in place while I snapped the lid back on to the machine top.

1) I removed two phillips head screws from the top of the control cover plate and placed the screws into a magnetic tray. 2) I then lifted the control cover from the washer exposing the cycle control mechanism. 3) I then traced the wires leading from the timer motor to there attachment points on the cycle control. 4) I then detached the slide on wires from the cycle control mechanism. 5) I then removed two sloted screws from the timer motor; thereby, detaching the timer motor unit from the cycle control mechanism. I placed the two slotted screws in the magnetic screw holder. 6) I then wove the new timer motor wires threw the cycle control mechanism many other wires and attached them to the leads. 7) I then positioned the new timer motor over the drive slot for the cycle control mechanism and replaced the old screws into the new timer. 8) I then set the timer control mechanism to start a new wash cycle in order to test the timer motor. It worked flawlessly. 9) I then replaced the cover and screwed in the cover screws. Repair complete!!!

washer would not drain

Once i figured out it would not drain i pulled the front panel off and pulled all the drain hoses off to be sure nothing was clogged there or in the pump itself. It was not so then i checked the drive belt and it was ok. Next i pulled off the drain pump and everything looked to be ok, it was not froze up and it would spin just fine. I got a screwdriver and held the splines inside the pump while trying to turn the pulley and thats when i found that the propeller was spinning on the shaft and under a load would only spin the shaft and not the propeller inside the pump. Got online ordered new pump and it works great now.
