Removed the inner basket and outer tub to replace the gasket and rubber seal. just had to remove about a dozen screws to get it out.

Tipped the machine up to replace the belt.
The noise didn't go away at first. I decided to spray all the pulleys with some silicone spray, that did the trick.

THE HARDEST THING ABOUT THE REPAIR WAS MOVING THE WASHER OUT IN ORDER TO REPAIR IT.
ALL I DID WAS REMOVE THE TOP BACK PANNEL BEHIND THE TIMMER .
THRER WAS A TOTAL OF 6 SCREWS TO REMOVE PANNEL.
THEN 1 SCREW TO REMOVE TIMER FROM MOUNT AND UNPLUG OLD TIMER.
THEN I PLUGED IN NEW ONE, THEN PUT ALL THE SCREWS BACK IN REVERSE ORDER THATS ALL !!!!!!!!

I obtained the parts on line and began to install these. I was surprised that the ease of my installation was great. Each part was held by one screw. I used a phillips driver and found the under screws easy to get to by pushing the inside clothes drum to the side. A total of four screws was required for the replacement. This repair was so easy that a normal non-trained person can accomplish it. Thanks Admiral.

My washing machine would be extremley loud when washing clothes then one day it stopped working.

First i unscrewed the bottom latch to check inside the maching, i then disconected the vertical style pump with pulley from its position and i discoverd a huge crack that was made by a loose pulley. After that i ordered another pulley from this web site easaly installed the pulley and now my maching works like new. The part was less than 50 bucks i saved over 200 bucks by not going out and buying a new machine.

Noise from pump

On a scale of 1 to 5 (with 5 being the most difficult), I would rate this a 2 or 3. It is just a matter of knowing how to access the pump. First I unplugged the washer. Then used putty knife to push in clips to lift up top of washer (the clips are located about 1 inch in from each side). Used socket to remove the two screws holding on front panel. Disconnected the two hoses from pump using pliers to squeeze clips (be sure to have cup or bowl handy because water will come out of the hoses). Lifted up washer and removed belt from pump. Used socket wrench to remove pump and replace with new one. Reattached hoses and belt. Reattached front panel and closed the top of the washer. Everything was easy to access.

Removed entire cabinet from base, removed drive belt, removed suspension springs, removed tub and transmission together.
Removed 6 screws from brake housing to access snubber. Didn't have the special tool to compress the spring for reassembly, but used 3 longer screws to pull the brake housing back down...worked fine. Reinstalled transmission / tub and replaced all 6 springs. Reassembled cabinet. Unit spins great now...like new.

lid hinge broken

I'm a 69 year old female. My husband isn't very handy so I decided to order the parts and do it myself. I didn't know how to take the machine apart so I just moved the washer part so I could unscrew the screw. I dropped the screwdriver between the adj. and side of the washer. I guess you won't be telling this story. I did get the parts on and the lid is working and so is the machine. Valerie Guyot

Pulled up the top of the washer and removed the lid hinge with a star tip screw driver. Realized that I also needed the hinge pins and had to reorder those. They should come as a kit.

Front legs came off while moving causing cycle pulley to rub on the floor.

The hardest part was finding the model # on the back. I couldn't move the washer out...so used a mirror! I used a putty knife to pop the 2 fasteners securing the top. Tilted it up & proped with a plastic clothes hanger. Unscrewed the one screw which is easy to get to with the top up. Replaced the hinge with the 1 screw. Closed the top. Gave the broken hinge to my wife as an early Mother's Day present.

Plastic Lid Hinge was broken

Changing the hinge was not difficult, but here's a hint: the top of the washer raises up if you pry it with a big screwdriver- be sure to wrap the screwdriver in a cloth so as not to scratch the appliance. Doing it this way makes it easy to access the retaining screws. You can push the wash tub to one side and reach the screws from underneath, but they're a tight fit and doing it that way is difficult. Overall a pretty easy repair and I'm only moderately handy.

The washing machine timer and knob substained damage from a falling object on the wall. The replacement parts were required and ordered very simply thru the parts list and using the description and pictorial reference, made my repairs very easy and quickly, approximately 15 minutes of time completer

Removed 3 retaining screws of the face plate of the panel.
Compressed the 2 pressure clips of the rear panel, which freed up the timer switch and allowing access to 2 harnessed wired connector for easy removal. The new switch reinstalled in reverse of the removal.

The timer was noisy, indicating gear wear.

I removed the three screws on the top of the control panel and the three screws on the rear shield. This exposed the timer.

Through a hole in the back of the timer, using needle nose pliers, I pulled out the spline securing the timer knob, thereby releasing the timer knob. This is the key to the whole process, because the Maytag manual says that turning the timer knob counterclockwise will release it. That is wrong.

Then I disconected the electrical connector on the timer, and removed the retaining screw on the timer. Next, I pulled the timer out of its snap fit and replaced it. Reversing the steps in described, I replaced the timer and snapped the timer knob on the spline, completing the job.

Hired someone. Note: I purchased two (2) hoses and (2) clamps -- this is the third time I am replacing a cracked hose. The manufacturer needs to use better quality and more flexible material for hoses.
