contacted Justanswer.com with description. Expert defined problem, identified part need and gave us link to your website. Rapid arrival of part, but we took a couple of weeks to get around to it as the washer was operational, just noisy. Website video of how to do repair was invaluable. Watched prior to starting the job and checked video again during repair to verify understanding. Wonderful to be independent of the vagaries of appliance repair. I would recommend Justanswer and PartSelect to anyone!

Leaking water through middle of tub down over transmission

Exactly as shown in your provided video from You Tube. What a life saver. The description of needed tools, and the fact that the main nuts securing the tub were REVERSE thread! I would not have suspected that and probably would still be beating on them, tightening them rather than loosening them!It is worth the price to purchase the spanner wrench (correct style), used to remove those tub nuts. Thanks for the great service and the video. Well done!

Replace motor pulley and belts

  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 30 - 60 mins
  • Tools Required: Wrench (Adjustable)

I had to turn the washer on the side to see the motor pulley was broken. I couldn't find the part locally; they said it was no longer available/manufactured. I went online and ordered it from PartSelect.com I live in Alaska and it arrived 5 days later. I did an easy install and only needed an Allen wrench to remove the old part and put on the new one and 2 new drive belts. The washer works better than it has in several years.

Washer was very noisey on the agitation cycle.

You'll be working on the very bottom of the washer. Remove the Phillips-head screw on the bottom, center pulley, then remove the washer and serrated pulley stop. Turn the pulley to unthread it from the shaft. The brake rotor bearing will be on top of the pulley. Remove it by hand (not a press fit) and reinstall the new bearing in the same orientation. Thread the pulley back onto the shaft to the original depth. Reinstall the serrated pulley stop, washer and screw.

The repair went well.I had to replace the seal under the tub.The video was the key to my success,I did not have a spanner wrench,I don't think it would have helped anyway,The nut was corroded I had to drill holes and chisel it apart after that it was no problem.

I did an internet search for a leaking washer and came across this web site.I looked under my washer model and it showed the repair parts plus it has a video of a repairman doing the job.The video was none the less the best help I could ever imagine.Tools needed and how to do the job a step at a time.The parts came to my door in two days via regular shipping method.I also purchased the special SPANNER WRENCH on eBay for about 10 bucks and it showed up the same day as my parts.The job took me about a hour and now my washer works like it should with no leaks.Thanks to Parts Select I highly recommend this site and their my new lifesaver. Ciao, Steve M

Water was leaking from the bottom of machine

  • Customer: William from Lusby, MD

After watching the repair on the video, I was confident that I could complete this job. The only tool I did not have was the special wrench for the retaining nut. I would recommend changing out the Bearing along with the seal. Due to the proximity of the seal, the bearing will most likely fail about the same time. The inner and outer tubs in my machine needed a thorough cleaning unlike the pre-cleaned demonstration washer in the video. A cheap plastic putty knife was great tool to scrape off the 14 years of detergent and lime sludge on the tubs. Allow yourself additional time to get everything clean as you disassemble the washer. The only snag I ran into was removing the corroded aluminum retaining nut. A cold chisel and hammer cut it off without much problem and a new nut was supplied with the kit. My old Maytag washer is now running like a champ and with no leaks.

Worn drive and pump belts

  • Customer: Michael from Streamwood, IL
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers

Replacing both belts was very easy. The belts slipped off the pulleys with no tools required. It took less than ten minutes to change them including tilting the washer back for access. The only reason to take the front cover of the cabinet off was to check belt tension and vacuum out the interior.

washer would not drain

  • Customer: Brian from Lima, OH
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

Once i figured out it would not drain i pulled the front panel off and pulled all the drain hoses off to be sure nothing was clogged there or in the pump itself. It was not so then i checked the drive belt and it was ok. Next i pulled off the drain pump and everything looked to be ok, it was not froze up and it would spin just fine. I got a screwdriver and held the splines inside the pump while trying to turn the pulley and thats when i found that the propeller was spinning on the shaft and under a load would only spin the shaft and not the propeller inside the pump. Got online ordered new pump and it works great now.

Belts were slipping during wash and spin cycles.

The first time I only replaced the belts and that was a big mistake. Always replace the drive pulley when replacing belts on an older washer. The front panel is easily removed with a screw driver once you get the machine rocked back toward the wall and supported. Then just roll the belts off, loosen the allen set screw on the drive pulley and install a new drive pulley. Roll the new belts on, snap the front panel on and wash quietly again. $68 was much better than the cost of a new washer.
