The belt fell off, looked worn so purchased a new one and put it on (very tight!) Started machine, and belt new belt fell off. Pls help.


Can you confirm your model number? FAV6800A or FAV9800A?

If it's one of those models with 120VAC power cord removed from the service outlet and the front cover removed. See if you can rotate the Clutch Pulley CW the wash agitate direction and then CCW the Spin direction. The Clutch Pulley is the large pulley in the center of the washer. We are looking to see if the drive system is seized.

After the drive belt replacement was there any belt screech when you powered up the machine and selected a Wash or Spin Only Cycle?

Your Belt still needs replacing or to be scuffed up with sand paper. If thes fails you need either new tub bearings or a transmission. either a 250-300.00 repair so tr the belt and rotate drain pump rotation while the belt is off

Loud squeal during wash and spin cycles, maytag atlantis washer


Squealing normal occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks. Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment, normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the belt.

If part of a belt gets torn and it is long enough, it will hit any part of the washing machine within range and make a clicking noise at every revolution of the motor.

I am pretty sure you need new belts. You should be able to remove a few screws and open the back cover. Between the pulleys there is a tensioner...loosen that so you can remove the belt easily. replace it with a new belt and adjust the tension.

hope this helps
