Question about Maytag Neptune FAV6800AW Top Load Washer
My gilfriends Maytag Neptune TL Washer made a horrible noise last night...i got home tonight and opened it up and found the belt off the motor and the pulley and the darn pulley was laying on the bottom...i found the 'small' bolt that holds the pulley on so i 'did my best' to get my hands under there (only like 2 inches work with...I was able to get a wrench on ti and tighten it down...but during a test spin cycle, it made some noise and came off again...the manual asks for 96lb of torque but i dont have torque wrench (plus i would not be able to fit it anywayy....anyway, i tighted the bolt on tighter the second time...and ran the spin...but the motor would not run....ended up getting a LR value on control panel...if i dont tighten the bolt tight, it comes off..if i tighten it too tight, do you think that is what is causing the motor to freeze up (or at least not pull the belt enough to spin pulley?
