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

On my washer the belt come off


You will need to use a socket set to loosen the belt tension bolt. Then place the belt over the drive wheels.

Now tighten the belt tensioning bolt, while applying force to the belt to tighten it around the drive wheels.

take care!

Maytag stacked washer/dryer fills with water, makes noise like it's working, but won't agitate, but at the end of it's cycle pumps out but won't spin either. Is this a belt problem? If so how hard is it to...


Definately sounds like the belt is off. Not too big of a problem for small hands mechanics. Usual problem lately with Maytag is the spindle pulley. For some reason they haven't been tightened properly and the pulley and belts are falling off. Pull it out from the wall remove the panel and see what you've got, really simple on the bottom end. Complicated stuff is up in the control panel. Make sure you get the pulleys lined up as close to level as you can or the belt will jump off on you during spin cycles. Good Luck!

Hello sunny31,
If you believe the belt is slipping then the belt will need to be removed and replaced. There aren't any belt tensioners in your washer.. Can you provide the specific model # with a response so I can provide you with more information on how to resolve your problem?
