I believe I can get the parts in Canada but must be certain what I need. Will I require special tools -- spanners, etc?

Screech noise at end of spin cycle

Hello, This sound`s like a common item on these washer`s...the brake rotor 35-6714. It can be quite challenging if one has never changed this item and it requires a special tool to de-compress the brake spring, it`s really dangerous to try and remove the brake rotor without de-compressing the spring so I usually recommend calling in a service tech. Either that or if you choose, You`ll need to first remove the belt and pulley assembly ( make a note how it goes together, take pictures or film it...there`s only one RIGHT way ). Then remove just three of the screws around the brake drum ( leaving the remaining in place ) and install much longer ones, about 3" should do. Once installation of longer screws is complete, then remove the remaining ones and slowly back out the long ones to take off the brake drum. ** DO NOT APPLY ANY OIL OR GREASE TO THE BRAKE OR DRUM OR ANYWHERE. THIS IS A DRY BRAKE, UNLIKE THE OLD MAYTAG ** The brake rotor should be available at most local appliance part supplier`s such as sears, apwagner etc. They may also have the specialty tool and be willing to loan it to you for a deposit or something. You can also get them thru on-line part vendors for around $15 - $20. It should look like the image attached below. Hope that help`s. Let me know if I can assist you further. Please take a moment to rate the info I provided for you and thanks for visiting "fixya". Good luck. macmarkus :)

How do I remove tub from the transmission? I see a nut? with 8 tabs, but it won't turn?

is this a maytag atlantis? you nees a special wrench to take the nut of the transmission shaft. DOes it have the circular plate inside? you might need a special spanner wrench for thos and be carefull tho, becaus if this is the maytag model im thinking about, underneath the transmission there a plate with a bunch of screws holding it down...DO NOT UNSREW ANY OF THEM!!!!! if you do not habe the special tools for it you will get hurt because there is a thick spring tha is under 200 pounds of pressure under that plate(which is the stator plate) and if you start taking it apart it will shoot up and cause damage and even serious injury...i would look into the special tools you need.

Leaks water on floor and spin cycle very loud

if it sounds like a boeing jet, you will need a new seal & bearing kit. This is something a technician would have to do. many "special" spanner wrenches and spring tools required

I have Maytag LAT2500AAE. I took off the front cover and I see water leaking from the tub bearing during the rinse cycle. I think I need the Tub Bearing Repair Kit PS60151. Is this a difficult...

Tub bearing replacement on ANY Maytag can be difficult. Even for experienced technicians, it can take 1 to 2 hours as long as there are no surprises (corrosion, stubborn bolt etc). Also, all Maytag washers require specialized tools for removing certain components of the machine.
