What you want to do is first unplug the machine. With that done have someone tilt the machine backwards while you lay in front of it to look. You'll notice a white foam like bottom, which you want to pull out. Watch as you doing so because the next step. There is a nut that screws onto the bolt that the pulley slides on to. Its a manufacturer defect, and when I was doing first year warranty for whirlpool I'd get about three a week. My solution to it. Get the belt around the pulley, push the pullley all the way up to where its supposed to sit, get some lock-tight and place on the bolt, not too much, and put your nut back on and ratchet it tightly. I've had no recalls using this method.

Maytag bravos washer making a grinding noise. It seems to make this noise when the drum is moving, any suggestions?


Unplug machine and tilt it back. Pull down the white insulation board. remove the two screws holding the white/clear plastic guard in place 5/16 nut driver. and check the gear and belt ours had come off. Now it works just like new you will need a 13mm hex for putting the gear back up.

Hoover washing machine Mod OPH 714D Error E16 in most programmes what dose it mean!


After far more research than I usually have to do, It seems that E16 means "O/C Heater"

Which means that the heating element is open curcuit. Which menas......

Either the heater element has a wire off at the back, or more likely the heater element is burned out.

They are easy to replace. Pull the machine out and remove the rear inspection plate at the bottom of the body (I think this machine has one!, sorry if it doesn't).

At the bottom of the drum, you will see a atainless steel cover, about 4 inches limg and a third of an inch wide, with rounded ends. There will be 2 spade connectors with wires in them (1 either end of the plate) and a 10mm nut in the centre. The nut tightens up a squeeze plate inside that crushes up a rubber seal to hold it in place. Undo the nut fully (you may have to push the little stud bolt that is now exposed in a little to free it off) The element should now withdraw if you grab hold of the spade connectors and tug a little to break the seal before you withdraw it.

Replacement should be the reverse of removal.

Power off the mains. The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. Drain out all the water. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. Inside is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out thoroughly. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip. Check out the pump too before reconnecting.

How to test heating element in kenmore h3 dryer


You can test the element while it is still installed if you like. Just make sure the dryer is UNPLUGGED, first. Dangerous voltage is still present with the dryer turned off. Remove the lower toe panel under the dryer door. This is accomplished by removing the screws under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off.

NOTE: Propping the two front feet of the dryer up can provide better access. Placing the feet on a 2x4 works well for this).

You have to remove the blower fan housing to better access to the heating element. Make sure you reach inside the door and remove the lint screen first. Then, remove the screws holding the assembly in place and remove.

Disconnect the wires from the heating element before taking any measurements. This ensures your readings are accurate and you do not read any parallel resistance paths. Do a resistance check across the heating element terminals making sure you do not ground your leads to the element heater box. A good reading will be between 9 and 13 ohms. If you have any questions, please let me know.

NOTE: This is a good time to clean the dryer interior and blower fan, while you have everything removed.

Heat elament is out


  1. Unplug the dryer from the wall before starting. Find the dryer heating element cabinet. For most dryers this is located in the back, however it can be in the front. Find the compartment on the dryer.

  2. Remove the screws or clips to get into the compartment to expose the heating element and wires. Use a needlenose pliers to carefully remove the element wires.

  3. Detach the can shaped object that may cover the heating element. Tip the can backward to slip it off the hooks holding it in place. Some models place the heating element with the can, while others provide easier access to it.

  4. Unscrew the screws holding the element in place and pull it out.

  5. Put the new element in place, and replace the screws to secure it in the dryer. Put the can back in place and connect the element wires before putting on the cabinet cover.

  6. Run the dryer on fluff with no heat, and go outside to make sure enough air is getting through the vent system.

  7. Break the new heating element in by running your dryer on high heat for 10 minutes without any clothes in the dryer. This cleans oily residue off the element and keep the clothes from getting smoky.

Wont spin out


I had a similar problem, but the precursor to this was a loud squeal when the machine came to a stop at the end of spin cycle. This squeal lasted for a couple of months (since I was afraid to take it apart). The one day there was a leak during the drain cycle, so I looked behind it and found the flex hose that goes between the drum and the pump. I replaced the hose after about a week, and when I tried to use the washer, it did not spin anymore. So I turned the washer upside down, pulled the drum out, and found a big 'caution' tag on the plate, but don't be worried. Out of the 6 screws that hold the plate on, I took out three opposing ones and bought 3 of the same pitch but only that they are 2" long. Then I put a nut on each one, and put them into three opposing holes in the plate. Run the 3 nuts down to the plate, then take the three remaining short screws out. Slowly back off the three nuts equally, and within 1.5" the plate is safely off. Then I lifted the spring out along with the brake drum. The drum had rusted itself in place. This was because of the water hose leak. So I sanded the brake drum lining lightly to remove the glaze, and sanded the place where it was rusted to. Then I put it all back together, and it works like new!
