Question about Maytag SAV2555A Top Load Washer
Hi I took the washer apart i layed the washer down and i am spinning the belt by hand it will spin one way the other way it will spin for a second then it makes a click and it becomes hard to spin then it clicks the helix lug nut turns then it cliks like it is striped. could it be the spin pully or the other end of it the plastic helix drive lug? I was able to take the bolt of at the bottom of the and remove the helix drive lug but could not get the spin wheel of , because of the bottom of the washer there is no room to take it of,I was going to replace these parts.do you thing it could be the belt the belt seems oky to me , thanks again for your help
The pulley will not remove very easily , it wold require removine the milk stool, motor and some other parts, not the easiest hing to do especially if not needed, the helix you removed, take a look at it , the sloped ends of it should create a pretty sharp angle, then a 90degree drop off, the slopes om the pulley should be the same, they should not apppear to be rounded off,helix is probly 10 bucks if needed and if its at the helix that you see the "slipping" and "clicking noise, before condeming the tranny i would start with tthe helix, if after re-installing it it still clicks up and over pully perhaps try adding another spacer under the bolt before tightening. the idea behind the pulley and helix is that depending on rotation of the transissiion, the helix "pushes against" the pulley adn spreads the brake plate, releasing the brake allowing the tub tospin freely
