Question about Washing Machines
Model lat2300aae, fills and agitates, and even drains a little in the rinse and spin cycles, but doesn't drain a meaningful amount. I have a clear hose connected to the machine's drain hose, so I can see a little flowing out. I've checked hoses for clogs, and they flow fine. Replaced the main drive belt because it left my fingers black, even though I didn't think that was it. Didn't do it. I've adjusted the tension on the pump belt so that it's actually a little too taut, just to be sure that's not it. The issue seems to be in the drain pump, but I don't know exactly what it is. I'm thinking (hoping?) it's clogged, but I don't know if I can open it without breaking it. I'm thinking of replacing it, but I thought I'd ask here before investing the $60. Any help's appreciated. TIA.
There may be a object in one of the hoses going to and from the pump. be sure have you taken the front panel off yet??? If not it has two clips on the bottom on the two sides than the panels swings towards you to unhinge from top. The pump has a clear body and you can visually see an obstruction. Sometimes i find that a metal object coin, etc can actually chew the fins off the impeller. That would be the only reason for it not to pump anymore. Also release the tension on the belt. Maytag wants some slack for the motor to slide on the motor plate proper.
