To replace the snubber and brake assembly on your Maytag washer, just follow these steps:

1. Remove the front case of the washer to access the washer interior.
2. Tilt the washer towards the back and remove the drive belt. Slide the drive motor towards the center pulley to relieve belt tension.
3. Remove the drive pulley by removing the center cap and retaining ring from the drive shaft. Remember how these components go back together. There should be a couple of plastic drive bearing pieces and some metal washers above the pulley on the shaft.
3. Lower washer and remove hoses from the wash tub.
4. Remove the suspension springs. NOTE: Pulling the wash tub towards the spring you are removing will release some of the tension on it.
5. I usually remove the entire wash tub with transmission still installed at this point and place it upside down outside the washer for ease of accessing everything. (There are other methods, but I find this one easier).
6. This is where a brake compression tool will be required to remove the brake rotor, stator and snubber ring. (Instructions come with the tool). Basically, it involves compressing the spring by turning the compression tool CW with a wrench, loosening all the bolts on the brake stator housing, and then slowly turning the compression tool CCW.
7. The brake compression tool is removed at this point and the snubber, brake rotor, brake stator and brake spring can be accessed.
8. Replace any worn parts, and reassemble the brake assembly. DO NOT forget to place the brake spring back in place before putting the brake rotor back on.
9. Place the tub assembly right side up and lower back into washer.
10. Reconnect all hoses back to wash tub.
11. Reinstall all tub suspension springs. NOTE: It’s easier to start in the back of the washer and work your way towards the front.
12. Tilt washer back and reinstall drive pulley. NOTE: When placing drive pulley back on shaft turn pulley slightly to ensure it is seated all the way on the shaft. NOTE: If the shaft had multiple metal washers, you may only need ONE after replacing the snubber ring. Retain the extra washer for later use if needed. If the drive pulley is reinstalled correctly, a groove will be visible at the end of the drive shaft for the retaining ring to go back in place.
13. Reinstall drive belt.

NOTE: The following link lists the recommended tools to complete this repair:

Spring Removal Tool (item #455570)
Brake/Bearing/Seal Removal Tool Kit (item #997909)

http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SmartSearch.aspx

However, I had a suggestion from someone I had helped in the past that provided this brilliant idea to save money instead of purchasing the brake release tool:

"I removed the 6 10-24 machine bolts, that hold the brake stator housing, one at a time and replaced them with 10-24 x 2" machine bolts. Once all the original bolts were removed, I backed out the 2" machine bolts evenly, keeping the brake stator housing aligned but slowly releasing the pressure from the 200 lb spring.

After replacing the snubber ring, the break and the break stator housing, I again use the 2" long machine screws to pull the unit together. Once all assembled, I replaced the 2" bolts with the original 10-24 X 1/2" machine bolts." Tip courtesy of rrdumas53.

If you have questions about this repair, please let me know. I hope you find these instructions helpful.

Maytag mah55flbwq not draining


Perfectly normal..
What you are actually hearing is a balance ring on the inner tub that has liquid inside to help keep washing loads balanced.
The balance ring is filled with a calcium chloride solution and baffles within the ring allow the fluid to disperse within the ring evenly
By rotating the spin basket you can hear the fluid dispersing within the baffles of the balance ring.

Thebalanceringisfilledwithacelciurnchloridesolutionandbaffles,withintheringallowthefluidtodispersewithinthe:ring,evenly
I also thought ours was not draining properly but discovered otherwise when I had to take the inner tub out for a bearing repair job..
Hope this puts your mind at rest..

Hi I have a Maytag Neptune model MAH5500BWW Serial B4585662GA. When I turn the drum, I can still hear water inside/behind the drum. Thank you


This is normal. There is a balance ring filled with water attached to the inner drum. The balance ring is sealed and is not supposed to be empty. When you turn the inner drum by hand, you're hearing the water settling down from the now upper chambers of the balance ring.

I have a Maytag Neptune front loading washer, After a complete wash cycle I hear water sloshing in the machine when I open the door and turn the durm. Is water supposed to be in the machine after the cycle...


Yes. The tan/gray colored inner ring attatched to the inner wash tub actually has a calcium chloride solution in it to aid in balancing the machine out during spin. Clothes go to one side, liquid to the other. It's all good. It is sealed so it cannot leak out or create odors.
Hope this answers your question!

Bell rings in Maytag Dryer


Many newer models have a wrinkle guard setting. They will buzz or ring or chirp with some sound to let you know to remove the clothes before the wrinkles can set in. Usually for 5 min or so near the end of the cycle.

How to change rollers on an older maytag dryer


I have inserted a link that shows an expolded view of a Maytag dryer. This may aid you as you progress through the disassembly of the dryer.
http://www.repairclinic.com/0100_18.asp
1. Disconnect the power from the dryer.
2. Remove the front panel.
3. Remove the drum bulkhead
4. Remove the drum belt by releasing the tension on the idler pulley.
5. Remove the drum.
6. Remove the TRU-ARC snap ring clipped to the front of the roller shaft. It looks like a C with 2 small holes in each end.
These rings require a special TRU-ARC plier, or use a butter knife or a putty knife, instead to pry the rings off.
DO NOT misplace the snap rings.
7. Remove the rollers, clean the shafts, or replace if too badly scored, lubricate with poly-lube, and reassemble.

Tip: Always provide the complete information provided on the manufacturers product information data tag, located on the unit, and not in the user’s manual. This will help you acquire a more accurate and expeditious response to your complaint.

If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.

Maytag washing machine #mav6260aw


I found the crazy sound where comes from, it was an aluminum ring in the drain pump.
First of all, I took out the belt under the bottom, checked moter to run itself, it was fine, so, I suspected some waste in somewhere, it was lucky I disassembled the drain pump first, no waste in the drain pump, but I saw a ring that was cut under the pump (seems should be connected), when I try to spin the pump wheel by hand it is broken because of the ring.
I ordered the entire drain pump on the website, the cost $74 + delivery fee, I recognized Maytag re-designed the drain pump due to the ring ( new pump does not have the ring anymore). Now the washer works fine like new.
