How do I adjust the pump belt on Maytag washer ?


Depends on model.
For top load units with two belts under botton panel, tilt empty washer against a wall to allow access to belts and loosen the 3 pump mounting screws. See page: http://www.applianceaid.com/maywash_belt.html

I know the link I provided is for a Whirpool Duet. The newer model Maytags (such as yours) are manufactured by Whirlpool now and have Whirpool parts. These instructions should work for you.

If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Brake Squeal on Maytag MAV5000 AWW


Here's the same advice I gave another person with a similar problem to yours. The squealing can be caused by the brakes, or a worn snubber. It's usually a combination of BOTH. Since you may have to take the to disassemble the unit to repair, it only makes sense to replace the snubber as well. The part costs less than $10 in most cases.

The following link explains the problem you are having with your Maytag:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r387833-maytag_washer_squeaking_problem

It is common for the brakes on Maytag top loaders to wear and make noise, as well, as the snubber. There is a helpful tip that you can try to quieten the noise if it is the snubber by using corn starch. DO NOT oil it, or lubricate with any petroleum based products! This will ruin the unit and actually make the problem worse. NOTE: If the snubber is excessively worn, it was also cause vibration on the spin cycle.

If the brakes are worn, however, you can put a light film of oil on the brake pad. It is common for the pad to collect moisture in humid and damp climates and start to squeak against the brake stator. The brake pad consists of a rotor with a leather edge (pad). The leather can absorb moisture and begin to squeak against the brake stator. Oiling it slightly will get rid of the noise.

Confused? If you have questions, please let me know. I hope you find this information useful.

NOTE: There is a follow-up comment at the bottom of the link I provided from another user. The method this person used to release the tension on the brake can save you from having to purchase the brake release tool.

NOTE: You cannot access the brake pad or snubber by simply removing the front of the washer. You can SEE them, but you won't have full access until you disassemble the washer as outlined in the link I provided.

Receive code "dc"...water will not drain and tub will not spin properly


This is my failure resolution with DC/UC error codes a common problem with this model;

I just did a repair on my FAV6800AAW by lubricating the needle bearings in the clutch pulley hub, the tub displacement sensor checked OK per the service manual check. I was getting dc/uc errors in the spin cycle, washer was purchased in 7/05. I have basic mechanical skills and used a socket wrench to remove clutch pulley hub, just follow the service manual removal steps to remove clutch pulley hub. Pull the plastic cover off the clutch pulley hub and inspect the spring, clean/lube needle bearings and the clutch hub coupler that drives spinner shaft. I used WD40 I may need to re-lube down the road with a good light grease. It took a few tries for me to get the clutch pulley hub to stay on after re-install and power up, getting the clutch pulley seated properly is the trick. I did not remove the washer tub for this fix, I believe I saw a posting where someone did. I just leaned the washer back to get a better reach angle, it is a tight work area. I did not want to junk 3.5 yr old $1k machine with out trying a fix. If you want to work on this model get the service manual, I found it online and I believe you can order it in PDF format from Maytag. Good luck!

I just went thru my 10th load of a mix of light, medium and heavy loads and all work fine no unbalance errors (DC/UC). Doesn’t fix the tangle problem :) Prior to this fix I could only run the washer with no clothes in it to complete a cycle with no dc/uc error codes.

I found a Service repair manual on this site search for this; FAV6800 Manual
