Question about Hoover AAA160 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Door Hinge My door hinge has snapped, and I need to replace it. Just wondering how to get the old one off? There are two screws on the front, with 'star' screwholes. I have removed these, but the hinge still seems screwed in. Are there any other screws (eg inside?) I need to find, or do I need to brute force it? Thanks,

The door hinge has snapped is it easy to take off and replace.

Two screws hold the hinge to the frontplate of the machine which goes into a threaded nut welded to the panel (torque to 30/40 foot pounds or relatively snug).. just remove the screws and raise the hinge and pull forward..(keyhole slotted on)... then reverse to attach the new door...

Replace boot gasket

Hello, Remove the door hinges and plastic covers on the unused hinge screw holes on the opposite side of the door opening (door is reversible, so there are places to mount hinges left and right). Front panel will now snap out at top and lift off lower spring clips. One screw on each side will now release top panel and it will hinge up. Prop up with broom handle or something. Now you can get at everything. Rubber gasket is held onto drum with a cable loop and very strong spring. It rolls off the lip easily to disassemble but is VERY difficult to get back on without special tools or at least two people. Door side of rubber gasket is easy in comparison with rubber tabs inserted into slots and working the gasket into a groove. Hose clamp at bottom of rubber gasket to connect drain hose.

I have a maytag front load mah4000aww. i replaced the wax motor and motor board put it back together. when i tried to wash a load water started to come out of the door. any suggestions would be gratefully...

The door is most probably out of alignment with the front shroud. Slightly loosen the door hinge screws and close the door firmly making sure it is fully and evenly seated into the shroud. Retighten the lower hinge screw but not fully tight. Retighten the upper hinge screw but not fully tight. Fully retighten the lower hinge screw then the upper hinge screw.

Door hinge

Firstly if you haven't already done so remove the door and the old Hinge. You can do this by undoing the screws at the back that hold the top of the machine on and remove the top of machine. Now you will see a piece on the inside where the hinge screws into. Hold onto this piece and undo the screws from the outside. Carefully remove the inside piece (because I dropped mine inside and it took me an age to get it out!!). Now undo the screws on the door and pull it apart. Replace the old hinge and screw door back together. Now holding the inside piece back in original position screw the hinge and back onto the machine. (You might need someone to hold the door in place for makes it much easier). Finally screw the top of the machine back on.
