How do I change the washer belt on a Maytag Washer #LAT2500AAE

The belt to my washer was lying on the ground and the washer does not drain. I removed the front panel and do not see where the belt would go. I also do not have an owner's manual.

I figured out that the belt went on the bottom of the dryer. It was actually very easy to fix once I realized where the belt went. I made the mistake of opening the front cover of the washer first, which is why I did not see where to put the belt. Apparently, if the washer is not level (since I had too much for a load and it caused the washer to pull out from the wall), the belt shook itself loose.

Maytag maxima washer won't drain


get to the back of the unit and take out the 2 screws on the back of the lid . remove the lid. look at the front electrical panel -remove the screws holding it in place. look inside the unit on the right and left side -- there may be 2 screws holding the front on - about 7 inches down. there may be two screws also at the bottom of the front panel. If the washer won't drain, should check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't drain properly, if at all. If the washer won't drain water check the drain hose. Be sure the hose did not get kinked behind the washer. Also, remove the hose from the pump and check it for obstructions. If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing. Keep in mind that any water in the washer will pour out of the hoses when removed.

Appliance Repair Eagle - Maytag Washer Won't Drain


Maytag Washer Won't Drain Maytag washers are notorious for drain pump failures. The most common complaint is that it won't spin, agitate, or mainly won't do anything. The pump bearing locks up and stops the washer belt from turning. Tilt washer up against the wall, remove belt, and turn each pulley by hand. If it doesn't move, then it's locked up. Remove the front panel and replace pump. Rich Western Appliance Repair

Maytag washers have two belts one for turning the pump and the other for making it spin. Sounds like the belt for the spin needs to be replaced. It is something that you can do. Maytag washer belts are quite easy to change. Hope this helpedd. Thank you for using Fix ya.

My washer is not draining. I used to be able to reset it and it would work but now it wont start on any setting and is full of water. Is there anything i can try.


Hi,
If your Maytag washer is not draining, follow these procedures to find out what is the problem.Set the timer in the spin cycle and pull the knob to turn the washer on. If the washer motor doesn't run, check the following parts.



The wall outlet: Make sure that there are about 120 volts present at the wall outlet. Connect a good working hair dryer to see if it works.If the hair dryer works ok, then the problem has to be in the washer. If the hair dryer doesn't work, then look for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker.


The lid or door switch : The lid switch is a safety device use to stop the motor from running if the washer door is opened during the agitation or spin cycles. A bad lid switch could be the reason for your washer not draining.

The pump : Check for obstructions inside of the pump and inside of the tub.
Check the pump impeller, the pump belt, check the drain hose for any kinks. Any problems in these parts could be the cause for the Maytag washer not draining.
Lower the drain hose to a bucket to see if the water drains out. If the water won’t drain or just trickles out, most likely there is an obstruction on the pump or inside of the tub and that could cause the washer not draining.
To check the pump, remove the front panel, lean the washer against the wall and bail the water out with a plastic container.
To check the pump, remove the pump belt and turn the pump pulley to make sure that the pulley is turning freely.
Put a couple towels near the pump to catch any water from the pump. Remove the tub to pump hose at and check inside of the pump for any obstruction. If you find an obstruction remove it.
If you don’t find anything, reinstall the hose and remove the hose at the tub, and check for obstructions.
A Maytag washer not draining could be cause simply by a kink drain hose.
You need to make sure that when you replace the pump, you adjust the belts properly.

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

Our maytag neptune mah8700aww front loader will not drain and unlock the door. what do i do.


The drain pump os obviously either blocked or gone. Lie the drain hose on the ground to drain by gravity. Then have a look at the pump. This may need to be taken out as I'm not sure if there is a pump filter on this particular model. The door is designed to not open with water in the drum.

I have a Maytag LAT2500AAE top load washer. The


check the balance ring on the tub just below the tub cover and tub cover gasket which can be done from the top of the machine by removing the top cover,while doing this pull and push tub from side to side and see if it moves easier in certain directions, if it does you may have a tub spring broken on the tub leading to an un balance condition cause the springs stabilize the tub like a shock absorber on an auto, if this is it then you need to access the lower unit area by removing the front cover of the unit there are screws at the toe kick panel to remove this panel
