Question about Maytag Legacy Series Top Load Washer
About 3 weeks ago my maytag washer stopped working. I checked it and the belt burned up. So I went ahead replaced the belt and the pulley. Belt started to spin sort of slowly and then it burned again during the first wash. Not only did the belt burn but water was on the ground since it was not draining.
I decided to remove the brakes and replaced the belt again. Now the machine is spinning extremely fast but obviously will not brake which is fine for now but the machine will still not drain.
Yes I checked the drain hose since when I first took the motor and belt out I had to remove the hose and water came gushing from there. There are no kinks in the back of the machine.
So I called the repair man and asked him for his suggestion and he said the machine needs its brakes in order to drain. So I went ahead and ordered the brakes and they should be here by tuesday. Now I hope that is it but I do not know I am hoping that any of you experts could help me with other suggestions.
Well, turn the water off, install the old brakes (or wait for the new), and run the unit through a cycle (without clothes) to pump all the water out.
With the new brakes installed, and the drum empty of water, turn the water back on, run the unit through a cycle to confirm all works properly. If not, make the additional needed repairs before proceeding. If it works fine, then your good to go and start washing clothes again.
