Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Depends how good you are with disassembly. It's not that difficult and you need to shut off the water and unplug the machine. The front needs to be removed and on the bottom is where the belts are. Loosening the pump retention screws and pulling the pump towards you while you tighten at least 1 not to hold the tension. Then tighten the other screws on the pump and reverse disassembly order. Too tight on the belt will burn your pump up and of course too loose will allow them to slip. I would look and see why the belts are slipping. Water leaks, worn out? For the proper tension, on the center of the belts, you should be able to press your index finger on it and it will push in about 1/2". Good luck
