I followed the instructions posted on the partselect.com website. 1. Turned off the water. 2. Unscrewed the fill hoses, and drain hose. There was a bit of water to drain from each, so I used a bucket. 3. Next I lifted the top of the washer and used a 5/16 nutdriver to take out the two screws holding on the front panel. 4. I then separtated the tub-to-pump hose, and the fill level tube. 5. I then took out all six of the suspension springs. 6. I then tipped the washer back, (with a helper) and removed the drive belt. 7. Then I took out the tub, through the top and set it upside down on the floor. 8. I loosened the six screws around the drive pulley, to release the Snubber ring. **VERY IMPORTANT** DO NOT TAKE THE SIX SCREW ALL THE WAY OUT!! 9. I walked the Snubber ring out and put the new one on, making sure it stayed even all the way around. 10. I tightened the six screws back up and put the tub back into the washer cabinet, being careful not to damage the plastic pulley on the bottom of the tub. 11. I installed the new (6) suspension springs. 12. I re-attached the tub-to-pump hose, and the fill level tube. 13. I re-attached the drain hose and the fill hoses. 14. Turn on the washer, check for leaks and you should be good to go. The washer works as good as new, I am very pleased.

The old worn belt came off with little difficulty, using the screw driver to coax it over the wheel. And the new one went on just as easy.

i pulled the casing from machine....undid motor bracket bolts....disconnected electrical connector and removed motor w mounting bracket still attached. i switched out springs....very simple...returned motor back to machine and attached....then leaned washer back and put new belt on. machine would work for 2 min and the shut off due to motor over heating...once again i tilted machine and was able to tighten bolts where motor attaches to pivot bracket keeping pulley from pivoting to far and causing strain on the motor and thus making it overheat and stop...several loads run without any trouble.....$28.00 washer repair is much better than having to buy a new one...especially in economic times like these... your website was very helpful, fair priced, and delivered my parts in a timely fashion.....ty

After some quick internet research I figured the snubber ring needed replacing. I watched a couple of videos on how to replace which was very helpful and I basically followed them to remove the tub and internals. A couple of notes- 1. to get to all of the springs really requires accesss from the back of the machine. 2. there is only one snubber ring, the schematics make it seem like there are two. 3. most importantly, the videos made the spring removal and installation seem difficult. Have someone tip the tub in the direction of the spring you are working on to relax it some. Also if you use your pliers with a fulcrum to pull tension on the spring you don't need the special tool or run the risk of slipping and driving the pliers into the tub. I used my free hand under my gripping hand, a small block would work too. If the pliers slip it only moves a short distance until the plier grips hit the floor - no damage. 4. don't forget the cornstarch on the cone for the snubber ring. 5. the drive assembly has a warning on it about 200 lbs of tension, don't let the screws to loosen the snubber ring come free from the ring they are screwed into - always keep the screws engaged.

Leak under barrel drum+ loud during spins

I saw that it was leaking under barrel after removing front panel .So I ordered tub seal and bearing kit plus basket and tub gaskets , not knowing that the seal and bearing kit comes with both gaskets, so do not order extra gaskets . So if the leak is above the transmission , I would recommend the seal and bearing kit!!+++ it is smooth and quiet now !

At first, we ordered the drive belt, which was a little worn down. But it did not resolve the problem. Looking deeper we noticed the metal inside the water pump pulley was torn a little. So we ordered it. Received it a couple of days later, and replaced. It took about 30 mins. Now it's working like new.

Tilted the machine to remove the belt. The removed the rear access panel, disconnected the hoses and using the socket set with an extension removed the existing water pump. Put the new one in, reconnected the hoses and put the access panel back on. Much easier than I thought it would be! Now the machine is as quiet as the day we bought it!

Broken hinge on the lid

  • Customer: Hazel from Copley OH
  • Difficulty: Really easy

Exactly like the video told me to! Seriously, I watched once when I ordered the parts, watched it again just before I started the job, and played each step as I completed that step. It simply could not have been easier. Without the video, I doubt I could have located and released the latches on the top of the washer, but seeing not only where he put the knife but the motion he used to spring them made that step so much easier than I thought it would be. With your help, I only paid a quarter of what the repairman wanted to make this simple fix -- Thank you!

Burning Rubber and Metal on Metal Sound

Rubber belt was getting shredded. I replaced the motor and motor pulley (because the are one piece), but the metal on metal sound was still there. I then did some research and found out the water pump pulley could be the issue. I took it out and felt the grinding. Decided to try and tighten the screws on it, but the sounds was still there. Ordered the water pump and it was so simple to replace. (talking with my Maytag store this would have cost me over $400 to fix. With PartsSelect.com the total cost was $225.

I followed the instructions on your video - it was very helpful! I would have never figured out how to take the top off without the video instructions. I released the top latches using the putty knife, removed the broken lid hinge & pin and installed the new ones.
