water leak from cold hose nothing to do with other problem. tighten hose connection and fit a new hose washer overfilling probably because air chamber blocked. remove lid. you will see a pressurestat somewhere at the top - usually round with anything from 3 to 7 wires and a small tube underneath. follow hose down and it connects to the air chamber. make sure this is free of gung and check hose for splits and has no blockage. to check the pressure stat itself, attach your own hose to the stat and while machine in fill mode, blow down this hose and you should hear a click and water intake will stop

Jan, if your pump needs to be replaced, I haven't seen a step by step instruction on it so far, so I hope this will do. First Unplug the machine and remove the remaining water from inside of it.(even after the spin cycle, water remains inside the bottom of the tub, the pump and the drain hose) The easiest way to do this is using a wet /dry vac, attaching it to the end of the drain hose that goes into the wall and sucking the remaining water out. Next pull the unit forward and tilt the top of it back about 45 degrees. (when you have it tipped back far enough, the top will rest against the wall behind the machine instead of tipping forward) Remove the belt from the pulleys underneath the machine. Remove the 3 bolts holding the pump to the base of the machine. Use a pair or pliers or channel locks to remove the clamps on the hoses attached to the pump. Install the replacment pump you've purchased from a local appliance parts sttore or bought from the manufactures web site on line by reversing the process. Run a quick fill/ spinto make sure you have no leaks.

SOURCE: Maytag Performa PAV2300AWW screaching noise, belt problem, pulley broke

My Maytag Performa was making the loud squealing noise. I changed out the water pump/bearing, took care of the problem.
Putting a new belt on just help burn up the bearing (they needed replacing) and probably ruined the new belt. Probably seized the water pump bearing and the belt jumped and broke the motor pully. A washing machine motor is very strong, when that h20 pump bearing seized (or possibly some bearings jamed up) the motor kept on turning that belt and the plastic pully gave in. You'll need to replace that also. If the h20 pumb bearing is turning freely, likely the bearings jammed up but or now loose. That bearing should be tight, no slack or play in it. You can probably wobble the pully on it all around while turning it. The slightest slack is too much.

SOURCE: washing machine glws1649aso wont spin on spin

no it will not be the belt more so it will be a bad transmission.or something stuck under the agitator i have seen drill bits and keys get stuck under the agitator and cause the transmission to stop
remover the agitator first and check it is there is nothing there the transmission needs to be replaced

if this is a two piece agitator,it should behave like a ratchet turn freely clockwise and catch counter clockwise if it doesn't catch the agitator "dogs " are shot this is a verry inexpencive repair

Leaking washing machine


It is so common that the drain leaks in many ways andis the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it isimportant that your observation is most important and so is vital to theidentification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water hasleaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on theunderside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here.In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of thehouse and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside.Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be looseon the grip which can all cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning thedrain pump/valve, tightening of the hose is also very important. Also water canleak if there are gaps on the front door gaskets and must be checked but thiswill happen only during the cycle and not on the drain cycle end.Tips for leak: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1461/do-you-have-a-leaky-washing-machine.html Check for tips on the link below to identify parts andremoval:http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7

The tub fills with water and agitates but will not spin. I replaced the belt and no change. It will buzz for a few seconds and then shuts off.


Tip it back and remove the belt:

Check the pump pulley, it might be locking up in spin direction. the motor goes one way for wash and turns the other for spin. The pump bearing fails on a lot of these and is easy to replace.

When in spin cycle machine makes a very loud whining noise


Most common cause for your whining noise is because the seals have failed/worn and allowed water into the bearings..Rusty ball bearings are not smooth...Hence the noise.....Probably needs bearing/seal and probably shaft replacement....Big job..Get quotes....Good luck...Nomess

Amana washer


take the front panel off, two screws at the bottom of the front panel, probably a 5/16 nut driver will work. You will need a flash light. partially fill the washer with water and then turn it to spin.

Look up underneath the tub and see where the water is leaking from. If its coming from above the bearing you need a seal job.

Bearing, seal kit, not cheap, how old is the machine, time to buy a new one?

Amana 2002 top loader washer model AlW880QAW


The overload protector is in the motor. Once it heats up, it trips. You likely have something not moving to cause it to trip. Pull your washer forward and tilt it back to about a 45 degree angle. (it will rest against the wall behind it instead of falling forward) Remove the belt and rotate all 3 pulleys to make sure they are moving freely. If the pump pulley (the one on the right hand side)doesn't rotate, you likely have a forign object in there or just a bad pump. If the transmission pulley (the large one in the middle) doesn't rotate, check for forign objectes between the tub and backet. If the one on the left doesn't rotate, it's time for a new motor.
