Re: How do I change the washer belt on a Maytag Washer...
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.

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.
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.

it sounds like the shocks on the drum maybe failing. on this model the washing machine mother board is close to the outer drum. the out drum may have made contact with it. and not turning on the pump to let the water out.
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.
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.
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
