Need to install new motor on Maytag PAVT454EWW


The old motor locked up (at least I think it did...the belt was melted, there was carbon dust all over the floor and nothing happened when you turned on the washer). It is about 11 years old.

I was going to buy a new one, but I found a new motor for just 80 bucks, so I thought, what the heck, I can fix this!

When I took the old motor out, there were a zillion little rubber washers, plastic fittings, etc., that I unfortunately did NOT pay attention to since I thought the new motor would have them. Wrong. I need to use them, but it's now like a puzzle trying to figure out what piece goes where and which go above the frame holding the motor and which go below. I tried my best, but now when I turn on the washer, the motor slides all around -- not good!

I've looked, but I cannot find a schematic that will show me exactly what order all these washers and footings go in that are used to attach the new motor to the frame. Can anyone help me please? thanks!

I have a maytag washer, toploader which was working fine until recently. Now when it starts rotating, there is a burning smell all in the area. What causes it?


Your washer uses a belt to transfer the power to the tub from the motor. If the belt slips, stretches, or breaks, it can cause friction and a burning smell, most likely a burning “rubber” smell. The belt is located either from the back access panel or from the underside of the washer. The solution is to replace the belt with a new one. To replace the belt you can open the back lid of the washer.
Remove the old belt & remove the bolt holding motor. Now remove the motor, remove & replace the plastic isolators with the new ones supplied with the belt on the motor spindles. After re-installing the motor & bolt adjust the new belt.

Please post back for any further assistance.

I have a Maytag Atlantis MAVT754EWW machine and there is a black soot like substance being left on the floor under the washer. It smells like rubber - do I need to replace the belt and if so, how do I do...

this black soot like substance is the motor carbon brush dust. i would get the motor brushes replaced and clean off all the dust from the pulleys and also replace the belt as it has been slipping on the dust.

Drum Does not Rotate

the carbon dust that you mention ? on the drivebelt will//may have come from the electric motor carbon brushes especially as you sy machine is 4 yrs old you can diy inspect the brushes by removing the rear panel to access motor unplug the socket from motor then slacken belt and remove belt from pully remove the motor you will see location f brushes x2 opposit each other and normally held in position ont armature of motor by coiled pressure clip like watch spring and brush has wire embedded in it and other end a push on terminal? when these brushes wear down normally the fist indication is fast spin slows then eventually no rotation of drum? over a period of time? SO easy diy to renew brushes if as above worne down /not contacting armature? cost approx £5 here in n/west uk worth investigating and diy saving ££££s $$$$s? and i hope you have good luck hope this helps/inspires you?

New belt

First put the belt around the small pulley, shd be the motor pulley i think. Then ease the belt around the big pulley & gently move clockwise if the pulley is on the left side; anti clockwise if you are inserting on the right side. The belt will fall into place. Actually it is very simple.
