Tilted washer on its side.Took off old pulley- Allen wrench. Slipped on new pulley and replaced both the drive belt and pump belt. Works like new again- maybe for another 29 years!!! ???

Broken belt

It was as simple as leaning the machine back far enough so I could get to the belts - which were on the bottom. The diagrams that came with the ordered parts were right on. This is the first time I have attempted this myself - my repairman has retired - I'm sure I will do it again.

Dryer suddenly began to vibrate during a drying cycle

After looking up the problem on the PartSelect website, which indicated the problem could be with the tumbler (drum) belt, I watched the instructional video, which was very helpful, as the dryer in the video was exactly the same as mine. After removing the power cord from the wall and separating the exhaust vent pipes from the dryer, I followed the instructions for removing the front panel, the front bulkhead, the drum and the old belt, which was worn and somewhat stretched. I then followed the instructions for installing the new belt, but I found it was easier for me to remove the back access panel in order to complete the installation of the belt around the drive pulley and tension pulley wheels as I wanted to see what I was doing as opposed to just "feeling" the belt to ensure a proper installation (e.g., new belt not twisted). Once I removed the drum, and before I put in the new belt, I also took the opportunity to use my shop vacuum (and you really need a shop vac for its power)to remove 25 years of rubber dust from the old belt, house dust, and packed lint from inside the exhaust fan, cabinet, and the vent pipes (and a dead field mouse that had crawled into the dryer through the outside vent pipe and had gotten trapped in the exhaust fan). I also examined the heater tubes to insure no lint was inside that and spun the fan blades by hand to make sure the motor shaft was not worn. Once I was satisfied that the installation of the belt was done properly, I put the drum back on, reinstalled the front bulkhead (checking to make sure the felt gaskets were in place, as recommended in the video) and reattached the front panel. I also took the opportunity to touch up the accumulated minor nicks and scratches ion the cabinet with refrigerator enamel. Now that the new belt is on, the dryer no longer vibrates, and with the dust, lint and mouse removed, dryer is operating much more efficiently. Remember to re-balance the dryer using a carpenter's level to minimize any latent vibration. Note that the actual removal and replacement of the belt took me about 30 minutes, and the rest of the cleaning, reattaching of the vent pipes, and balancing, etc. took about two hours.

Thumping noise when washer was in spin cycle.

Disconnected the hoses , power cord, and the drain hose. Tipped the washer on it's front panel and removed the old belt and spun the new one on. Tested for tightness as per the instructions and sat the washer up and hooked everything up. Total time---5-10 minutes.
Local appliance dealer insisted this wasn't the belt we needed. Thanks to your website we easily selected the right one. Thanks.

Groaning / squeaking sound from water inlet valve

When the inlet valve closed, after dispensing water, it did so slowly and with a groan or squeak. Same during rinse & spin.

The video was clear on how to get it out from the back and replace with a new unit. Only problem I had was not pushing the outlet hose all the way back down onto the new inlet valve -- it leaked pretty dramatically but was an easy fix.

When pulling the inlet valve, I saw the inlet hoses where starting to slightly leak at their connectors, so I replaced them.

As I had never replaced the belts on this 20+ year old Maytag, I swapped them out at the same time. All I had to do is tilt the washer back and pull off the old belts & replace them in reverse order.

The videos were a great help.

CustomerSteven M. from Fort Luderdale FL

There was a burning rubber smell from the washer

I went to the Internet and saw how to pry the front panel off the washer. This gave me access to the two belts and four pulleys underneath the washer; a pair for the Drive and a pair for the Pump. There was enough slack in the original belts that they came off with minimal effort. The new belts were easy enough to install. It took a mere seconds to install the new Spacers on the Front panel of the cabinet. The most time consuming portion of the project was getting the washer turned out of its tight corner to get access to the clips on the bottom of the front panel.

Washer would not agitate.

Since my missus keeps her appliances like new, it behoves us to buy something of good quality when new. We did that. Now, after almost 20 years, the washer complained it needed new belts, which I complied. Tilted it up against the wall after pulling power cord. Removed both belts and replaced. Adjusted pump belt by loosening pump and then retightening. This is easy to get to by removing front (removing 2 philips screws). Piece of cake.

Burning smell

I viewed and followed the PartSelect Instruction Video. My only problem was reattaching the door after the hinges fell off.Everything fell into place as the video indicated. After I regrouped I was able to put the hinges back and then I was able to reattach the side panel very easily as the vedio indicated. Thanks for everything.
