Removing and replacing the pump was a very easy process. Once the belt was removed on the bottom of the machine, I removed the back plate to gain access to the pump. Three screws and a couple of clamps holding the hoses on the pump. There was a little more water in the pump during removal than anticipated. Other than that, it was an easy fix.

remove the cable under the washer, open the back small opening/access panel, unplug two hoses, remove and replace the pump, put everything back including the cable under the washer. then test and it washes like new and quiet. Installation video is very helpful.

Washer made squealing and grinding noises at the end of a wash cycle

I followed the very useful videos for replacing the water pump and drive belt. My machine has the water pump located in the back (different than the video) so removing the front of the washer was not necessary. However, by doing so, I noticed some interior rust from bleach-tray spills which I easily fixed with a wire brush and some spray paint. The pump was easily removed by loosening 3 bolts (per the video) but through an access plate in the back. The only surprise was that there was considerable water in the pump hoses and I needed a bigger catch tray to collect the water than I expected.

Hinges for the lid were broken

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.

Machine out of balance; banging; hopping.

  • Difficulty: Difficult

Followed very detailed instructions posted on the website. Made a difficult job possible; without instructions would not have been to do repair. Thanks to those who posted step-by-step process. Suspension springs most difficult part of job, followed by C clamp. Lots of sharp edges to cut and scrape your arms and hands. After seeing how this machine is built, I am done with Maytag appliances.

Washer was off balance

Cause:The main problem was the snubber ring got destroyed from continuously overloading the washer. That lead to the unit becoming off balance which in turn broke the belt pully off of the water pump and wore out the tub springs. Solution: Procedure 1: Make sure to turn off the water going to the machine, unplug the hoses and the power cord and if you have room take it out away from the wall. even after it is drained there will still be some water in the unit so keep a good size towel on hand. The pump is the easiest part to replace; simply lay the machine forward so that you can get to the back panel and the bottom at the same time. Remove the panel and the pump is just inside. remove the belt from the bottom of the unit then remove the black hoses from the pump taking note how they are situated and the size difference. Remove the bolts that attach the pump to the housing then lift the pump out through the opening; unless you have purchased new bolts you are going to want the old ones for the reinstall since the new pump probably doesn't come with any. Also, the replacement pump may not have the same mounting bracket but it will mount just fine without it. now simply install your new pump in the same position as the old, secure it to the housing and reattach the belt. Procedure 2: Now for the springs; this is a little more difficult and it is going to take some muscle and patience. Do not remove all of the springs at once, trust me! lol! The easiest way to do this is to remove one spring at a time and replace it with a new one; just make sure to mark them as you go or at least remember where you started. Only a few of them are accessible from the panel in the rear but if you tilt the machine back upright the whole front of the machine can be removed very easily. First you must remove the top; to do this there are two brackets on the back at the top behind the instrument panel that can be removed with a Phillips head screw driver. after they are removed pry the front of the whole top panel up, there are only two brackets holding it down. Remove the two screws that you have uncovered at the front and remove the front panel by lifting up slightly and pulling forward. you can now get to the rest of the springs. Take note how everything was removed and reverse process to put it all back together. Thanks and goodluck!

loud noise when spinning

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

The video is really helpful. The clamps on one of the hoses slowed me down. It took some contorting to get the clamps compressed and at the right angle to secure the hose. My lack of patience was probably the culprit. FYI: My failed pump made no grinding sounds. Nor was there any resistance when turning the pulley. But the problem was indeed the pump. Working well now.

Loud noise during wash and spin cycles

I used the Instant-Repairman tool on the site to help identify the problem. It said I needed a new Drain Pump, I purchased it and a new belt which was not recommended but I figured couldn't hurt. Then I removed the belt from 3 pulleys on bottom of machine. Next I removed the access panel from back of machine. Then I disconnected both hoses from drain pump and removed it from washer by loosening the 3 machine screws. I installed the new drain pump with the 3 machine screws and reattached both hoses to new drain pump. I re installed the access panel and re installed the belt over 3 pulleys on bottom of machine. Presto - no loud noises.

All that had to be done was pull the washer out from the wall, tilt it back and roll the belt off one of the three pulleys and it fell right off of the other two. To install the new belt place it around two of the pulleys and roll it over the edge of the last one. Actually took 15 seconds to change it. Getting the washer out and ready took the most time. Now there is NO noises when it agitates or spins. LOVE IT!
