    thats strang. is it really hard to put the belt on? make sure all the grooves for the belt are completly on the motor shaft. if not it will fly off. also you can adjust the tension on that belt. by moving the motor down. you will see a bolt i believe it is 1/2 " socket. looses with belt off down just a little the belt will be really hard to put on. but if you do it right this should help.

I hear the belt floping around in my front loader washier,how do i fix it??

Get the service panel off. Then remove 4 large bolts and the washer motor and pump will come out. Put that on a work table and remove the pump.
Then you can replace the belt.97a7db3.jpg

I have a neptune front loader and I have to pretreat every item before washing. My clothes do not come clean..I have contacted Maytag several times but no one has ever replied. Can you help The repairman...

Look up the model unit and compare it to the models appear on countless Google search pages. I had a set that bought new after the introduction and what became a PR nighmare for Maytag as they tried to ignore the problem. I was unaware of any problems since there was never a recall just at the very end when they offered to take the nice looking front loader in exchange for a new regular top loader. Mistake number 2. My washer started to get a bad smell and being single and doing maybe three loads a week. Then the washer drum started retaining water, not inside, but surrounding. The only way I discovered is while cleaning I turned the drum. Depending on who you asked, even some Maytag salesmen as well as the folks at the big home improvement stores and it was said to be the "oil" that lubercates the drum, water that was needed to turn the drum and a couple referenced this whole manufacturing defeact that could not be fixed. I decided I would stick with the oil or water concept becasue it made sense. One evening, I Googled. I was sick. It would only get worse and to contact Maytag, was a joke. Instead of waiting for the day to come, I listed the dryer for sale with the washer free. I disclosed everything and I could have sold a100 sets. The lady who bought the set for $650 was putting it to a flip/rehab project. I hope you are not the one who bought her property -- she wasn't planning to go into detail with the future buyer,

Have a front loader the drum will not stay turning for each cycle

sounds like the motor bushes have badly worn just check or replace them,sometimes they just need taking out and give them a flick with your finger to get rid of the carbon dust build up,put them back on if they are long enough as they really should be showing a good quarter of an inch for it to function rite.

Front load washers

This is Joyce
I sell major appliances
I would recommed that you buy a maytag or ge I sell more ge appliances but they are not made as well as the maytag, the lg has made a good name for themselves but you have to first of all find out who works on them. that is the most important thing, and always, always get exstended warranty, you will use it believe me. I have a front loader and I bought a warranty and I have used it in 4 years 4 times. I have not had bad mold because I keep mine cleaned out, you have to clean them more than the others, the front loaders where the tray pulls out you have to take the tray out and spray clorox up in their and get tooth brush and scrub it about once every 3 months to get mold off, if not you will have problems, also if you dont want odors put about 1 cup of clorox in machine and run cycle with no clothes in it. that will clean it. dont let anyone tell you they wont mold, just leave the door cracked open a little so air can get into the machine and it wont smell so bad. but they are awsome I would not trade mine for the world. go for it.
happy shopping

Belt comes off

maybe not, is the belt condition good, if so check for any wobble on the pulley, you may have worn drum bearings, this will cause the large pulley to wobble and throw the belt when it spins, also you can check the belt for being tight, it should be fairly tight but not tight enough to cause it to snap, if loose there should be adjustment at the motor end on the motor housing, all of this is assuming this is not a brand new belt, if so have you bought the right one?
