I ordered the new part on a Sunday and it arrived at my house on Tuesday. Removed the back cover plate,(only two screws) removed the two hose clamps and hoses. Removed the three screws holding the old pump to the base and took out the bad pump. Put the new pump in place, (a perfect fit) and put everything back together. Even the belt went back on with ease. The washer was back in place and working perfectly in about 15 minutes.

Broken water inlet valve

In our case, the hot water inlet valve was obviously broken. We picked up the washer on the side of the road in our neighborhood. We checked it out in our driveway - hooking it up to the water hose. When we connected to the hot side, water came gushing out the valve, inside the washer. A quick look confirmed it was obvioulsy broken. We connected the cold side and it started to fill the tub. Other checks confirmed the washer timer and other controls worked OK. we ordered the valve part from PartSelect (about $60 total). Took all of about 30 minutes to pull the old valave out and install the new one. Cleaned up the washer (it really needed it BADLY), and the washer is working perfectly now.

After reading several online posts about this problem on appliance forums and following the suggestions about how to determine what was needed (whether the inner tub turned freely (by hand) in spin mode or not. It didn't which apparently indicates the likely need for a new thrust bearing. I purchased the transmission pulley and bearing kit from Parts Select. I got it the next day, without asking for next day delivery! When I took the old parts off (easy: pull off the plastic cover, remove the circlip and everything falls off the shaft (if you are working with the washer just tipped up. Unfortunately, that was where my easy repair ended. The parts were entirely different! After looking and looking and thinking, I called Parts Select. They informed me that Whirpool, who makes Maytag had redesigned the parts. They didn't look like they would work, but I followed the directions which came with the kit and installed the new parts - three times. The last time the pulley stayed on and the washer spun as it ought. The problem was that even with the smaller of the spacer washers the circlip was extremely difficult to get in its slot. Anyway, now the washer works and I am pleased, even though I spent many hours on what ought to have taken perhaps 1/2 hour.

springs were worn out

  • Customer: roger from houston TX
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers

After removing the washers front, I removed the springs that holds the tub upright and in balance. From the video, it decribed the ease of installing the new springs after removing the original springs. The new spring needs a great deal of force to reattach them. I attached a pair of minature vise grips(4") to the springs upper shaft and attached the strap (I used a ratchet strap long end strap with hook) to the vise grips and had a helper pull up until I could attach the spring to it's spring bracket. The back ones were quit difficult so be advised, if your not strong (physical) and have a strong helper, don't attempt this task.

Had no problems taking machine apart following online instructions. At first couldn't find snubber ring because it was completely worn away. Once found it was very easy to replace. Only problem with putting back together was getting the first spring back on, after that it was a breeze. Machine up and running.

washer danced around in spin cycle

I would not recommend trying this without the spring removal & re-install tool. Very difficult to impossible to remove the springs with pliers. Not meant for novice handy persons.

Won't Agitate, Won't Spin, Jumping around, squealing in spin cycle, abrupt stop

  • Customer: Gina from Los Angeles CA
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set

Washer was jumping around in the spin cycle to the point that it disengaged the water fill level hose which in turn caused it to overflow. I fixed the hose but almost immediateley it stopped spiining or agitating. I looked online to find that the jumping around was most likely the snubber ring ... the hard stop and squeal most likely the Brake Stator ... the no agitaion or spin was likeley the thrust bearing. I ordered the parts and were received in a couple of days ... by the time they came I had already torn apart everything and was just waiting on parts for reassembly. The instructions were concise and complete but I did benefit from watching a YouTube video on the repair. All the parts went together just like they were supposed to even with my limited mechanical skills. All I really used was a small socket set, a couple of screw drivers and a pair of pliers. Taking the Brake assembply is dangerous but can be done with no special tools if you buy a couple of 2 inch 10-24 screws to replace two of the short ones and then back them out slowly (look for a youtube video on this procedure EASY!) ... took me a couple of hours but any one who has used a screw driver more than once could probably do it in under an hour. Washer now running like new ... No Jumping!!! People at Parts Select were Great!!! BTW ... So that the springs would be easier to re-install, I stuck about $50 of quarteres between the coils before removing ... worked Great!

When I received the replacement part it did not look exactly the same as the one that came off the washer. After watching the video that was sent with the shipment confirmation I very clearly understood it and was able to do repair in about 10 minutes. It was so easy, I wish that there were more repairs to do to take advantage of your wonderful customer service. You have created a customer for life. Thank you

Washed hubby's overalls with a 6 in screwdriver in his pocket. Flooded the Kitchen and the basement.

We went on line and found the correct part. It arrived in 3 days. said it might take 7. Husband and son dismantled the old plastic outer tub that had been slit by the screwdriver. Put the new one in, and filled the tub up with water to check for leaks. When the water got to the level of the fill line, it started leaking. We pumped the water out and stopped to wait for daylight. Next day we lifted the top of the machine and filled it again...the line that goes to the water level knob...was off. The woman found the leak and put the hose back on. We were semi worried when we read the reviews, but in the daylight, it really wasn't all that difficult to change out the broken tub.

Lots of water on floor

Took access panel off of back saw that hose had pulled off of tub, thus the rinse water was just running on floor, re attached hose when the rinse cycle finished and the brake stopped the spin it jerked the hose off once again. It had a spring clamp holding it on, so I reinstalled it with a worm/screw clamp, no problems since. Ordered a new hose to have on hand in case. Jim
