This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.


If you look at the section for the Agitator and Tub, you should see a part called the Tub Seal. This could be what is disintegrated.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet and Tub Ring in order to get to it.

Sears has part numbers for either the complete tub ring and gasket or just the gasket.

Black debris is coming out of the jets when you start it up. What is this and how do I get rid of it. Thanks Gord


If the tub is more than 5 years old the rubber pump impeller could be disintegration.
If the debris just seems to be dirt then fill the tub above the intake with HOT water ... then add some dish washing detergent to the water ... run the pump about 1/2 to 1 hour

I have a bosch classixx 1200 when i wash a load of whites there is often a small amount of dark spots of deposit on the sheets if this is wiped off when wet it rubs into the material if we wait until dry...


Yes - I get this - you have to wipe the inside of the drum rubber ring - not just throught the groves but sludge seems to collect in between the rubber ring and metal drum; you will need quite a bit of kitchen towel!

MAYTAG Wahing machine model MAV6000AWQ


I believe your machine is equipped with a "snubber plate" under the transmission. A lot of Maytag top-loaders are. This is a white teflon ring that is used as the wash tub and transmission support and assists in dampening vibrations during the spin cycles. It's located on the inside case of the machine under your transmission. When the snubber goes bad they generally start to squeak. They cannot be lubricated and must be replaced. If you try to oil them, they will eventually disintegrate. The snubber costs less than $10 to purchase. I hope this helps.
