Need to install new motor on Maytag PAVT454EWW

Hi

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!

Im trying to replace a fan on a simplicity freedom f3300 vacum. HOW DOES THE OLD FAN COME OFF? It seems to be pressed on but I dont want to brake anything.


Assuming you have the motor out of the fan housings, check to see if you can move the fan around clockwise/counter-clockwise. If the fan is not moveable, the fan has probably melted to the motor housing. Replacing the motor is recommended as the plastic motor housing under the fan is probably damaged/melted. It could still be fixed but there is a possibility of damaging the housing. If after removing the fan following the directions below be sure to remove/trim any melted plastic away from housing before replacing fan. Not trimming the plastic could result in your new fan melting again to the housing when the machine is turned on. If you have an older model pay careful attention to the carbon brush area, if there are plastic posts holding the carbon brush springs, these are easy to break.

If the fan is movable, remove the nut and washers from fan. Use two large flat head screwdrivers and place them opposite of each other under the bottom lip of the fan between the fan and motor housing. (it might be a little easier if you have an extra pair of hands to hold the motor). With the flat heads in place, push the handles of the flatheads toward the side of the motor where the belt shaft is. If the fan does not pop off rotate the position of the screwdrivers and try again. Pay close attention that the fan washer is installed before replacing your new fan. after installing the new fan, rotate it several times making sure it isn't rubbing anywhere.

If you need any further help feel free to contact me.

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?


Hi


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.

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.
