Question about Washing Machines
It looks to me that the pump that is supposed to pump the water though the discharge line is not working and all the water is going down through it onto the floor. The model no. is MAV7650AWW. The tub itself seems to be okay and not leaking. Where would a find a replacement part or should washer be replaced?
Sounds like you might need a new pump belt. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. Unplug the washer and with the water out tilt it back so that you can see the bottom. You have a main drive belt that goes from the motor to the big pulley in the middle. There should be a second belt that goes from the motor to a smaller pulley which is the pump. Make sure that this pulley turns freely in both directions. One direction is agitate and the other is discharge. If it does and your belt is loose a new belt might do the trick.
If the pulley does not move freely take off the front panel, two philip screws about 3 inches up from the bottom of the front panel. Inspect the pump. One time I found a scouring pad in the pump!! If after inspection the pump still does not move freely you may need to purchase a new pump. Find the part number and check out prices on-line. The pump is relatively easy to replace. Good Luck
