Replacing a belt on a washing machine is a pretty easy process, depending slightly on how easy it is to access the belt. On our Maytag, the belt can be accessed directly underneith the washing machine. So, I lifted the front of the machine and put a few blocks of scrap wood under the legs to hold up the front of the machine. Once that was done, there was nothing else that needed to be removed to access the pullies that the belt had to go around. The motor itself is generally adjustable to allow the belt to be changed. So, I first wrapped the belt around the largest one that spins the washin machine tub, and then wrapped it around the one that spins the water pump. Finally, I loosened the bolt on the motor to allow it to move, wrapped the belt around the motor, pulled the motor back to tighten up the belt, and tightened the bolt that holds the motor in place. It's a pretty straight forward repair that narly anyone could do thmselves.
Piece of cake. Raise up the front of the machine. the belt slips of easy by turning the main drive wheel. put the belt on the two small one and then rotate the big wheel as you slip the belt into the grove. good idea to first clean the wheels of any old belt material that may be worn off. Piece of cake!
pulled the machine out, tilted it backward to expose the bottom. pulled off the old belt. got the new belt started on the three pulleys. pulled the belt to spin it , and...............done !!
after doing some research I found out that a loose or slipping water pump belt could cause the water pump to not pump out the water correctly. Under the washer is the belt. All you do is have someone lift the front of the washer up enough that you can reach under and remove the belt. Then replace the belt back like you took it off.
Pulled that sucker out from the wall and leaned him back just enough to prop a case a beer under it. Slid up under there with the biggest dust bunny I ever seen. Yanked that old belt off and threw it away. Tried to uncoil the new one and it slapped me in the nose! Got it uncoiled and around the two smaller pulleys pulling the adjustable one in to it's limit and walked the belt around the big drum pulley. By the time my wife put down her coffee and came to see if she can lend me a hand I was done!.
Removed top cover, then removed front cover. Put washer on its side and removed belt. Located motor, noted orientation of retainer wire(v shaped wire that clips motor to frame), removed motor, noted wiring diagram on paper before removing wires from termination points, removed wires. installed new motor, installed wiring, installed wire clip. Turned washer on side and installed new belt. Turned machine on and it worked great.
The repair of the four parts, motor, timer, pump and belt only took about 3.5 hours. Simply find the screws or bolts holding the part in place and undo... The place the new part back to match the holes and bolt back down... Match the wiring of the motor by moving one wire at a time. (don't pull the all off at the same time) ... And the price is wonderful... I now have a washer that will last another 10 years or more... Very easy very satisfied.
My husband unhooked the water lines, unplugged the washer and remove the waste water hose, then we tipped it over and easy as pie the belt came off and the new one went right back on. I did not see any tears or breaks in the old belt, but it was stretched out a bit, and the washer is once again quiet. This also gave me an opportunity to clean under the washer, which we all know we don't do unless we have to. Cheap, quick, and easy fix for someone to do there self.
changed drive belt and saved me from buying new washer,,working like bland new again ...many thanks
Removed back access cover and lift top cover looking for leak. Initially thought it may have been the pump housing. I filled some water into the tub and I flexed the hose between the tub and the pump and water sprayed out. It had cracked in about 3 small places (water is present in the hose anytime water is in the tub) Ordered and replaced hose. Also order drive belt and replaced as a preventive maintenance item.
It was easy to replace the water pump
Repair was very easy. I removed the old pulley from the motor shaft by breaking it. And then tapped the new one into place. It works great. DON'T buy a new motor for $120, just replace the pulley $6. This whirlpool pulley fits the Admiral motor perfectly!
diagnosed a loose belt-- ordered and received same -- installed and set to proper tension that was simple.
The pump was easy enough to replace. Access panel in the back and 3 screws and it was off and back on in less than 20 minutes. It was putting the belt on that gave me the most trouble even though one of the pulleys moved to allow for easy replacement it did not move enough. It took me another 30 minutes just to get the belt on. I finally decided to place the belt on the two smaller pulleys and save the larger one for last and it went on with no trouble at all.
