Can be done just need PATIENCE!.. youll need ot remove the door assembly, and the 2 screws oppisirethe heing willalow for the front "u" shaped panel to be reomved.. next remove the 4 screws from with in the dispenser area, and then there are perhaps (6) 5/16 screws holding the nextfront bulkead and maintop assy down.. after removing theese screrws youll be able to lift eh main top back wards( prop it with something, a few more screws will release te hlatch assembly.. from here you can probably install the new bellow, remove the spring and wire, and the work the new bellow around the tub lip. a third hand will come in handy, after working it around , youll needto reconnect the tension spring..HARDEST PART OF JOB>>> REQUIRES PATIENCE!!!!!. sometimes this goes on for me with out issue in 5 min, other times 25 min and im PISSED AT IT!!!!!!!,, wrap the wirer around bottom of lip and your going to hold one end of spring, needlenose vice grips work perfectly. then with another set of needle nose. stretchthe spring togethr to lock the wire around.. whern you finally get this reassemble the latch and drop the top back down replace all teh screws, and finally you need to retuck the bellow into the front bulkhead( tabbs line it up nicley.. good luck!!!

Washer rocks violently, how can I identify bad shock absorbers?


A washing machine with shock absorbers? Is this a front or top loader? Top loaders you pull the machine forward by grabbing the top of the back. This adjusts the self adjusters. Thanks

Water leaks from weap hole in bottom of the plastic housing


The Maytag's have always had problems with those front door boots leaking and not draining thus leaving a bad mildew smell. What the problem probably is is that the hose that connects to the weap hole is cracked and needs replacing. I would suggest just replacing the entire boot along with the hose. The boot is a pain to replace though, it might take a tech to get it done for you. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this information was helpful. Good luck.

Tub fills with water


replace water valve in the washer. Serial number is needed to find the correct part number. It's likely 22003834, but call any parts supplier with model/serial numbers to verify.

Good luck,
