Posted instructions/videos were on the mark.
Some springs are more difficult to reach, so disconnecting the entire cabinet from the base to gain access from different angles helps a lot to connect/disconnect the springs.

Drain hose leaking

Watched videos on how to replace the hose. Armed with the information I started the process. But the videos were wrong. After removing a bunch of screws and not getting to the hose I removed the inspection panel on the rear,three screws and there was the hose.simple. I wished I had not watched the videos.

I remove the necessary panels, hoses and electrical section and removed the tub springs and pulled the tub assembly out of the unit and replace the snubber ring. Was really not hard to do and it worked like a charm. No more problems :)

High pitch screech when rinsing

First thing was to go to PartSelect website to see what others with the same problem did to solve their problem. It was 45% pump and a lot less for the belt. My belt is only a year old so that was out. I ordered my new pump and watched the video on PartSelect a couple of times. I didn't bother to disconnect the water and drain lines. I had my wife hold a plastic 2 quart container under the pump when I pulled the small hose off and didn't spill a drop. Like the man on the video said...the new pump isn't identical but it fits and works fine. Thankx PartSelect!

Took the front panel off the washer with a screwdriver, tilted the washer back and propped it up with a paint can, unscrewed 2 nuts & bolts, disconnected the electric to the motor and lifted out, put the new motor in place & secured it with the nuts & bolts, reconnected the electric and re-installed the front panel of the machine and I was done.

machine spin cycle not working

placed washer on front exposing bottom of machine. removed clip holding pulley in place with needle nose pliers. The old parts slid off transmission shaft easily. I set these aside in order of removal. The replacement parts were not exact matches to OEM parts replacement bearing was heavier duty and thicker there were washers in the kit that would not even slid onto transmission shaft,replacement pulley and cam were exact replacements for OEM. I replaced the bearing and thrust washer and then used a combination of new and old washers to build the assembly back to the original length so the retaining clip would hold assembly firmly in place.The instructions key point was that the final height had to bring the pulley back to the original height for a snug fit with retaining clip. Once I realized this the extra parts in the kit were less worrisome.

Making knocking noise when win wash cycle

I replaced both the belt (PS2018741) and water pump (PS2347193)on my Maytag Washer MAVT446AWW. I replaced the belt and water pump at the same time because my machine was making a pretty loud knocking noise (like a belt was flapping loose -- but the old belt was not broken. I used the instructions in the PartSelect.com video and installation was pretty easy. Both the new belt and water pump work fine. BUT the knocking noise in the wash cycle is still there. Does anyone have a suggestion on what I can check next with regard to this problem? Thanks

water pump stoped working

  • Customer: donald from fillmore, IN
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Socket set

Easy fix. I pulled the washer out from the wall and leaned the top back to the wall. I then removed the belt from the bottom. I set the washer back on all fours and slide it around so I could get to the back water pump access panel. Using a nut driver, I removed the screws from the panel, then I removed the panel. I could now see the water pump. With a pair of pliers I removed the two hose clamps, and removed the end of the hose's from the pump. Then with a socket wrench I removed the three screws holding the pump down and removed the pump. In reverse order I put it back together. It works fine and saved me a lot of money from happened to buy a new washer. Thanks PartSelect.

The repair went smoothly with no issues or problems. The video link sent with the receipt made all the difference in the world. I watched the video on my iPad as I was doing the repair. Also locating the parts I needed on the part select website could not have been simpler.

Lid on washmachine was loose. Found that one of the plastic hinge pins had broken.

Ordered two new hinge pins as well as hinges. (Did not want to have to deal with it again so chose a full change out.) Watched a U-Tube video that described how to change out the hinges. The trick is find out how to lift the top panel on the washer to access the screws that anchor the hinges. Use a putty knife and slide it into the space between the top panel and the front panel. Got the job done today in an hour or so. Chose to also wipe out the top of the wash tub at the same time so it took a bit longer. Works fine now. Just like new.
