Re: maytag washer repair

I had the repair guys out 3 months ago maytag paid for labor I paid $150 for seal and bearings, tub froze and belt broke. the tub now is making the loud screams that others complain about I contacted maytag and reapir servce and talked with the tech. this machine is a piece of S$%^ the seal fails on a regular basis and bearings get water in them. I just missed my 3 month waranty and will not pay for that repair again. people at home depot agree that this machine is trouble. the machine must be taken completely down from the top to replace the bearings and or the belt. the tub must be removed. If you call maytag they will pay for the labor but not the parts.

Cant get the belt on

If you have a tensioner, the pump will be bolted to it.
If not, thread the belt round the wheel on the drum and hold it as though you are going to put it on the small motor pulley wheel.
Spin the drum slowly by hand and let the belt feed onto the motor pulley wheel.
It`s just like putting a bicycle chain on when it`s come off.
Hope this helps you

This calls for some dis-assembly of the washer. Are you still looking for assistance ?
