Belt adjusting of wore out motor pulley

I have a maytag performa pavt920aww washing machine. I've had to replace the belt. Is there a way to adjust the slack out of the belt? The pulley that is attached to the motor has some wear and may need to be replaced, if I can't adjust the slack in the belt out. I was wondering can the motor pulley be ordered separate, or do I have to get the whole motor assembly?

Maytag performa pavt244aww washer burnt rubebr and black pieces


Check with the belt off that the bowl will turn freely, if not check drum bearings or something caught between inner & outer bowl. Make sure when you fit new belt it is adjusted to the right tension or it will slip & burn.

My maytag performa top loading washer will not spin or drain, what could be the problem and how do i fix it?


HELLO THERE
If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows: If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt. If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Maytag Performa PAVT920AWW washer makes a squealing sound


i am sorry but i had this problem happen before with my customer maytag performa, what i found out is that the brakes become crystallized, causeing a squeaking noise, remember in agitation, the brakes stops the the drum from spinning, what i advise you to do is change out the breaks or take the brake pads and rub them with sand paper

thanks

A screeching sound during agitation cycle only.


sounds like a bad clutch. check the transmission out for ware and inspect the clutch as well. make sure the brake is not dragging as well.

Think belt is bad. Can't get front panel off


most maytags have belt on bottom (underneath) tilt back and check, drain pump pulley is in one corner, motor in other. pump has bearing that usually freezes up. take belt off and check rotation of pump. (motor is adjustable, pump fixed)

Maytag Performa PAVT920AWW noise in wash cycle no agitation. Belt is not broken but in the wash cycle there is no agitation only a bad bearing sound.


Your main tub bearings need replacing at least a 200.00 repair. The parts alone are about 80.00 and a few hours labor.

Your Belt still needs replacing or to be scuffed up with sand paper. If thes fails you need either new tub bearings or a transmission. either a 250-300.00 repair so tr the belt and rotate drain pump rotation while the belt is off

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.
