My husband was washing a load of clothes and as our front load maytag washing machine started to spin, a shirt wrapped itself around the rubber part that is at the front of the washer and pulled it out and the circular metal piece came out also...how do we fix this?

You will have to take off the front off washer to put it back correctly.

remove the top panel 3 screws in top rear
remove the bottom panel 3 screw in bottom front
remove the top led control panel 3 screw or more along front lip
if you disconnect any wiring mark it well .
now the front of washer can be removed with or without the door (your choice)
careful with the door lock wiring.
be sure to unplug the washer.
while you are in the innards its a good time to wipe around the drum any buildup of soap etc..
and to clean the filter trap in the bottom access tube below drum.

On final spin cycle there is a smell of burning rubber and smoke coming from the back of the machine.


Hello, If you remove the rear panel you can check the condition of the belt. The belt may be breaking apart and wrapping around the motor or pulley. I would start there. If you find a damaged belt the part number is 34001411.. Hope this helps and please dont forget to rate me if this helps :)

My Whirlpool Duet front loader is ripping my clothing. It looks like it is being pulled, the area they are ripped looks like they are being pulled! I checked inside the machine to see if there was anything...


My washer ruined 2 king sheets 3 shirts and brand new jogging suit, so I know what you mean! The rubber gasket ...it had 2 metal bands..one on the inside which is a wide one and a small thin one on the outside of the gasket. You really can't see the wide one unless it has started to slipped off or break. or by taking the ting one off,..my wide band came loose which caused the screw to be exposed just enough for something to catch on it, tearing the material, it kept wrapping around and around untili eventually the band came completely off. I hope this helps.

Maytag Neptune 9700 series


IT SOUNDS LIKE THE OUTER BAND TO HOLD ON THE DOOR BOOT/SEAL. WHAT I HAVE SEEN IS THAT AN ARTICLE OF CLOTHES WAS NOT ALL THE WAY INTO THE WASHER AND IT WAS STARTED, PULLING THE DOOR BOOT INTO THE WASHER. THE ONLY OTHER THING I HAVE NOTICED WITH THIS NEW BREED OF SUPER CAPACITY WASHERS IS THAT THEY LIKE BIGGER LOADS TO HELP BALANCE THEMSELVES. IT MAY BE POSSIBLE THAT IT WAS SO SEVERLY OUT OF BALANCE THAT IT PULLED THE BOOT INTO THE TUB AS THE MAYTAGS OF THAT MODEL LINE WERE KNOWN TO NOT BE THE MOST SENSITIVE TO OUT OF BALANCE CONDITIONS. THERE IS A CONTROL BOARD KIT THAT COMES WITH A MOTION SENSOR NOW FOR THEM AS AN UPGRADE.

I am getting an error code "DC". What does that mean?


DC means: Unbalanced load prevented the washer from
spinning.

This happened to me when i was washing a single shirt (red shirt, first time washing so i did it seperately so it wouldnt bleed into other clothes)

So i set the washer to "drain", waited for the door to open, and wrung the shirt out by hand. Next load it worked properly.

We have the same problem. Look at the agitators inside the washer. We found strings and material there. Not sure what or if there is a fix bout I just saw the problem 2 days ago.
