    Maytag Legacy SAV515DAWW Top Loader, about 2 months ago it leaked from the laundry room on the third to the landing over the open stair case on the 2nd floor. I have been using it occassionally with a pan under the drain pipe during each use. Last week it popped the belt, and low and be hold, we went to install another belt today, had no manual, as it came with house when we purchased it 2 years ago, so we ended up here searching for help to install the belt. Thanks to you and your postings, we stopped, pulled the motor out to find... it is rusted inside, had a ton of water inside of it. I have never owned a Maytag appliance, as I have always been faithful to Hot Point... (I beleive now it is GE).... and my last washer and dryer I had for 19 years and sold them as a pair for 175.00 just 2 years ago. Boy am I regretting that. This washer has never leveled, even though we have leveled it 100 times and now this..... I will never buy another Maytag product, now that I have read your comments and found that Maytag is just sitting back and acting like it isn't their problem. It is no wonder the Maytag man is so bored, they won't let him go out and do his job!! I am thinking that I should junk this thing.... any one have another suggestions.... what do you reccommend I replace it with?

    Belt broke and I need to replace it. How can I remove the pump from the motor

  • eeemd Jun 17, 2008

    washer stopped spinning.  I was happy at first that it was "just" the belt. but now it seems rediculous that you have to take the whole motor apart in order to put a new belt on.

    Belt broke on the Legacy. I tipped it back to replace the belt, but there is a panel on the baottom covering the belts. It has major spring anchors in it. What's the procedure to remove the springs to remove the plate to replace the belt?
    Isn't it a good precaution to replace both belts instead of just one?

  • willy chee Mar 29, 2009

    Mave Maytag Legacy Washer.

    Access to replace bottom belts is hindered by plate covering base and used as an anchor for stabilizing springs.

    How do you remove the plate to change thje belts?

    Must the motot be removed to change the belts?

    Isn't it wise to change both belts while you are at it?

    The spin belt broke.

This is specifically for a Maytag Legacy SAV515DAWW, but may apply to the whole Legacy line.
There is only one drive belt on this washer and it is not accessible directly from the bottom as a pan forms the bottom of the case. All work can be performed through the bottom front panel, once it is removed.

Before one starts, an overview is helpful. The motor for the washer is bounted just behind the access panel. Attached to the shaft at the motor bottom is the drive pully for the drum belt, along with the belt tensioning pully and spring. Below that is the pump assembly attached by three screws in the shafts, which are accessible only from the bottom. What you must do, is remove the pump by unfastening four hex-head bolts, then rotate the motor and pump assembly bottom upwards to the front, so the bottom of the shafts containing the torx head screws fastening the pump are accessible.
While everything is all together it is helpful to notice that the far support for the pump is in almost a direct line with the motor shaft and the tum pully shaft. When you reassemble the components, this vertical pump support must go between the belt. As you face the washer, the tensioning pully will ride on the outside of the right side of the belt.

1. Unplug the washer.
2. Pull it out from the wall, so it may be tilted back at about a 45 degree angle and will not fall foreward.
3 Remove the two hex head screws on the right and left bottom front of the washer. The panel should lift out from the bottom, Two pins hold the top of the panel in.
4. Examine the mechanism as described above.
5. Detach (Unhook) the tensioning pulley spring from the front of the bracket above the pump..
It is not necessary to remove any of the hoses. There is adequate flexibility and slack for replacing the belt.
6. Remove the four hex bolts attaching the galvanized motor bracket to the frame.
7. Rotate the motor back, so the pump bottom faces the front.
8. Remove the three torx head screws in the pump support arms.
9. Detach the pump from the motor. Gently pry it off or gently strike the body of the pump away from the motor with a soft faced mallet.
10. Place the new belt on the motor pully and reinstall the pump, so the leg closes to the tub pulley is inside the two sides of the belt. Reinstall the pump screws in the plastic shafts.
11. Reinstall the motor and fasten the bolts.
12. Make sure the tensioning pulley is to your right of the belt and then side your hands to the rear and slip the belt under the drum pulley and completely around it.
13 Feed the belt onto the drum pulley. I did this by reaching back with my left hand and feeding the belt, coming from the motor pulley, into the drum pulley, then slowly rotating the right side of the drum to me with my right hand.
14 Check to ensure the tensioning pulley is to the right of the belts, then reattach the spring, so the pulley forces the righthand belt to the left.
15. Set the washer upright, open the lid and rotate the drum around twice using your hands. This will help seat the belt on the pulleys and ensure the drum is not stuck.
16. Make sure the cycle switch is pulled out (set to off) and plug the power in.
17. Set on a wash cycle and looking in the bottom , check for proper operation. If the motor appears to be stalling, immediately turn the unit off. Rotate to tub some more by hand and test for operation. If it still doesn't work, see help, your problem is more than just a belt!
18. If everything seems to work, toss in a test load of laundry and pat yourself on the back for being able to save some money!

First comment: mrton
There are four bolts holding the motor to the chassis. Remove the four bolts, slide you hand back along the belt and released the belt from the transmission pulley. Once this is done, turn the motor and pump upside down and you will see the three star screws that hold the pump on. Remove the screws and slide the pump off. If the pump is stuck you will have no choice but to break the pump off and replace it.

Second comment:Guest
I'm sorry you have had such a hard time with your Maytag washer. The problem may very well be a cracked pump or leaking tub seal.
As to a replacement ? All machines have pros and cons and can be difficult to choose. I'd look at a Whirlpool for two reasons. Price and ease of repair. Most whirlpools do suffer minor problems as time goes on but very few have major breakdowns.

Trying To set up yahoo mail in my HTC phone need details


Hi,

You will need adjust the mail application's POP settings to get your Yahoo! Mail messages into it.

POP access is a service for owners of one of the following:


Yahoo! Mail Pop Access & Forwarding

Yahoo! Mail
Plus Premium Services
A Broadband account
A Small Business account

Please note that access to IMAP servers is not available.


To use an email client or application to send and receive Yahoo! Mail messages, you may need to designate a new incoming (POP) mail server and a new outgoing (SMTP) mail server. Consult your owner's manual for instructions on designating servers in the email application.


If you can't add new POP or
SMTP servers, you will need to change your current server settings.

Before you make any changes, write down your current settings. You might need to revert to your original settings later if you decide to send and receive messages from your other email addresses.


The following steps will help you find the POP settings for your Yahoo! Mail account and configure it:


Log onto your Yahoo! Mail account from a PC.

Click Options > Mail Options.
Click POP & Forwarding.
Click Set up or edit POP & Forwarding.
Click POP Settings.

Note your Server Setting information. Your phone email client or application will ask for these settings:


Incoming Mail Server (POP3)- for example, pop.mail.yahoo.com.

Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP)- for example, smtp.mail.yahoo.com.
Account Name/Username, your Yahoo! Member ID- for example, myuserID.
Email address, your Yahoo! Mail address- for example, myuserID@yahoo.com.
Password, your Yahoo! Mail password- for example, l0ngitudin*l

Notes:


POP server settings may change from time to time and you should confirm the current POP server settings in Yahoo! Mail if it is not working.


When using
Microsoft Outlook, replace the "@" in your address with "%".

As an alternative to configuring Yahoo! Mail POP mail configurations, go to:


http://mobile.yahoo.com/mail

http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mobile/...

Enter your phone number and send a link to your phone; the best Yahoo! Mail experience will be suggested to you.
Have a nice day

I need a replacement belt for Hoover Elite upright vaccum ,model no. U5043-930. What belt do I get?


Hello,

Your vacuum cleaner originally came with Hoover belt part number 38528027, however Hoover has now discontinued this part number, and replaced this belt with the new belt which is part number 38528040.

The new belt is a little bit smaller then your old one, but unfortunately this is the only belt that Hoover currently makes that will fit your model.

Here's a direct link to our website if you still need to purchase one:
http://www.govacuum.com/agbelhoovpar7.html

I have also uploaded the parts diagram and instruction manual for you. The parts diagram gives you every single part number for all parts on your vacuum should ever need to know another part number. The owners manual will give you step by step instructions on how to change the belt, as well as other maintenance instructions.

Part Diagram for Hoover U5227-930:
http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/vacuumcleanerbacgs/Part-diagram-hoover-u5043-930.pdf

Owners manual is actually for the commercial version of your vacuum, but this will be identical to your instruction manual which Hoover doesn't have available for free:
http://www.hoover.com/pdfs/manuals/C1414900.pdf

I hope that this information was helpful to you. If it was, please be so kind and rate my repair helpful by clicking the thumbs up icons in the top corner of the repair.

Thank you very much,

Chris J.
