http://www.ehow.com/how_5649680_change-belt-maytag-neptune.html Remove the back plate of the the washer. Loosen the 1/2" bolt that holds the motor to provide a little "play" in the motor shaft. Loop the belt under the motor shaft onto the pulley. Now pull the belt up onto the large pulley as far up as you can go and start rotating the belt and the pulley together until the entire belt is fed onto the pulley. This will be very tight and not easy. Retighten the 1/2" bolt. Manually rotate the belt and pulley around a few times both ways (clockwise and counterclockwise) to be sure it has seated on the motor pulley and large pulley. If the belt keeps coming off no matter how you reseat it you have a bigger problem.
The code means locked rotor. Disconnect power to the washer and remove the rear access panel. Remove the rear access panel securing screws and pull the panel off the cabinet.
Turn the drum pulley by hand to determine if there's a restriction that caused the locked rotor error. If there's a restriction, remove the drive belt. Pull the belt from one side of the drum pulley then turn the pulley in such a way that the belt unwraps from it.
Turn the drum pulley and the motor pulley to determine whether the drum or the rotor is being restricted.
The outer tub bearing is damaged if there's restriction in the drum pulley. Specify the model of your washer for the specific replacement part/s and installation guide.
Try to free the rotor if it is stuck by forcibly turning it back and forth. Replace the drive motor if the rotor cannot be unstuck. Specify the model of your washer for the specific replacement part and installation guide.
I suspect that you have a leveling bracket come loose. Many of the Maytag washers also use a large concrete block fastened underneath to help balance things. Look to see if yours is this type. If so then the steel rod holding thinge that holds it in place may have come loose...should be easy to put back correctly but will require some muscle. Most of the Sears Kenmore units have springs that can come loos from their connections and require re hooking but I do not think you have this type of unit for a Maytag. Hope this helped.
That is a tough one, especially since you indicate that the bearings are okay. The belt not wanting to stay on a Maytag Neptune washer usually does not bode well. It is usually an indication that the drum bearings are shot. Look for brown splatter on the back of the drum and the inside bottom of the washer. The presence of any brown discoloration is a pretty good indicator that the bearings are going. Anyway, hope this helped, sorry for your problem, and best wishes.
