I took the front off by removing the two Phillips head screws at the bottom. I leaned the washer backwards and blocked the front up about 6 - 8 inches. Next I loosened the three screws that hold the pump on. Then remove the belt. Now it is time to get the hoses off by taking the clamps loose. Wiggle the hose and pull them off. You need a small bowel and towels to collect the water in the hoses. The final step is to take out the three screws that you already loosened that hold the pump on. The pump can now be lifted up and removed. Replace the pump with the new one and reverse the procedure.

I first thought I would buy a new washer, however, after seeing the complaints that purchasers were having with the new models, I decided to repair my old 'trusty' Maytag. I first watched the video that showed the replacement of the parts and followed the directions in the video. Since the washer was old I also cleaned all of the pullies to remove any debris and grease that had accumulated on them over the years. After replacing the pump and belts I ran the washer and it sounded like a new one! I saved myself over $600 by repairing my old washer rather than buying a new one. They don't make washers like they used to.

I watched a utube video showing how to do the job. It was simple considering I am not mechanically gifted. The whole job took about 20 minutes. The hardest part of the job was moving the dryer out of the way first.

Just followed the video posted on the Parts Select web site. The actual repair took just a few minutes, the total repair time included getting all the plunder out of the way in order to move the washer out from the wall and then cleaning under the washer, dryer and utility sink after the repair was complete.

I removed 2 Philips head screws from bottom of front cover and removed cover. Tilted washer back and installed a 6' wooden block under washer. removed 3 hex head screws from pump base using my flex shaft nut driver and a 5/16" socket. Removed the 2 hose clamps from pump and lifted pump out. Pump appeared to be ok but checking by turning the pulley I found the impeller did not turn, shaft key must be sheared. The new pump came the next day at 2:00 PM and it was an exact replacement. Installed and up and running in about 15 min. Working fine.

I watched the repair video twice even though the repair was very easy. Just like the video, I unplugged my machine, unscrewed the front cover screws and removed the front cover, moved it forward and leaned it back to expose the bottom and replaced the belts. wow! Simple and back to a quiet washer. It took me longer to clean the floor and inside of the washer then it did to replace the belts! Thank you so much

First off I would like to say how suprised I was that parts are still available for a 23 year old machine and that partselect not only had the parts but a video for the repair. The video really shortened up the time it took to get to the motor and pump as I thought going in from the back would be how to access them. I did have to tighten the pump belt as per included instructions. The drive belt went on easy. I buttoned it up and tried it out and the machine worked great but a few loads later the burning rubber smell came back and the machine wouldnt agitate. I could go through the cycles a few times and it would then start agitating but that is only a temporary fix so I took the front cover off and looked the drive system. I noticed two drive motor tension springs side buy side and what looked to me like holes for a third tension spring. I added a third spring and so far so good but I will keep an eye on the machine for a while to see if the third spring does the trick.
