Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Is it feasible to take apart the transmission on a Maytag Peforma and tryto fix the transmission? I already have everything apart, but can't get the top plastic and other items off of the shaft, so I can access the top of the transmission. (The transmission won't rotate CW to let the drum spin, but works fine CCW for agitation.)

We have a Maytag Peforma Model PBB2255GES Maytag Refrigerator. It has a bottom freezer drawer. We have water pooling under the right front leg of the freezer.


The drain in the freezer behind back lower panel
needs opening. You can see it at the bottom of the back panel
underneath the evaporator coils. (The cold coils)
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
When the defrost melts the water it goes down the drain
If the drain is clogged with Ice or ? The defrost water
overflows into the ref. or freezer or on floor
Run Hot water in the drain until it clears or use a hairdryer.
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

Need to take out passager drive axle to get alternator our


If you have everything already apart then the drive shaft should pull right out. Some times they pull out hard. Try turning it back and forth and give it a good ****. Make sure the transmission is in natural.

Maytag dryer thermostat


Not 100% about this model, but the stat is located next to the fan.
Remove the front cover - insert a flat blade between the lid and front panel approx 4" in from each side to release the clips, lift the lid, remove the front panel (2 screws) fan and stat at the bottom, rest is straight forward.

Maytag washer is leaking


There are special tool designed to dissassemble this unit although it can be broken down without them if care is taken.

Having the model and serial number would help but be assured that the threading is standard (Rightie tighty, lefty loosy)

Maytag used different designs. Repair depends on the model/serial number. With this information I may be able to step you through the repair.

Knowing the age of your machine would be a plus in determining if repair is economically feasible.
