Hello;
check the belt tension as it could be loose a bit also check its edges for any signs of wear n tear ,, spray some silicone lubricant on it and see if that helps.
cheers.

Maytag maxima washer won't drain


get to the back of the unit and take out the 2 screws on the back of the lid . remove the lid. look at the front electrical panel -remove the screws holding it in place. look inside the unit on the right and left side -- there may be 2 screws holding the front on - about 7 inches down. there may be two screws also at the bottom of the front panel. If the washer won't drain, should check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't drain properly, if at all. If the washer won't drain water check the drain hose. Be sure the hose did not get kinked behind the washer. Also, remove the hose from the pump and check it for obstructions. If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing. Keep in mind that any water in the washer will pour out of the hoses when removed.

Amana washing machine (ALW880QAW). Does not work in spin cycle. Washer works ok in wash cycle, and in draining water, just the new belt is too loose when it switches to spin. It just burns up the belt....


probably the lid switch is faulty,remove screws behind control panel,then pull control panel toward you and lift up and lay back,now remove 2 screws in the lower front panel by the floor and remove the cover,then 2 more screws to remove upper front panel above the lower one,then 2 more screws in front hold the top on then raise top up like a car hood and the lid switch will be under the top cover

How to change a belt on a Whirlpool washer model LA555OXTWO


I am not exactly sure on your machine, several places called it a direct drive unit but here are some directions I have found also.

1) Turn off water. Disconnect electrical supply and water hoses.
2) Remove agitator and cap from machine ( this is not always possible as the agitator gets frozen on the shaft, it just makes the job a little easier )
3) Lay machine on it's front. Protect front of the unit from scratches. Do not leave it over night on it's front as some oil will leak out the breather hole on top of the transmission.
4) Remove rear service panel
5) Loosen both nuts holding the motor mounting bracket in the slotted base plate holes. (see figure 1)

fig1.jpg

6) Rotate the motor to the right to relieve the belt tension and remove belt from motor pulley

7) After belt is removed from motor pulley, rotate motor to the left as far as possible to assure cam bar clearance.

8) The spin cam bar must be advanced to the spin position. Push up on the spin control solenoid plunger and rotate the main drive pulley until the cam bar advances to the spin position.

9) Remove the brake yoke spring from the gear case cover and yok. (see figure 2)

fig2.jpg


10) Remove completely the 3 support braces attached to the gear case and base plate. (see figure 3)

11) Remove the 2 pump mounting bolts. The pump hoses do not have to be disturbed. (see figure 3)

12) Remove the gear case mounting stud which has the spacer. remove spacer (see figure 2). Loosen the remaining 2 gear case mounting studs approximately 7 turns. (see figure 3).

fig3.jpg

13) Remove yoke retainer from yoke support. (see figure 2 for the types of yoke retainer).

14) The gear case can now be pulled down so that the belt can be slipped out between the top of of the clutch shaft and the clutch yoke. (see figure 4) and then through the space beneath the short stud; drop the belt from around the gear case.

fig4.jpg

15) Reverse the procedure in steps 15 & 13 to install the new belt.

16) Replace the pump making certain the pump lever is engaged in the notch in the agitator cam bar before securing the pump to the gear case ( see figure 5).

fig5.jpg

17) Grasp the bottom loop of the yoke spring with a pair of pliers and engage the spring with the hole in the upper gear case cover (see figure 2).

18) Replace spacer in short gear case mounting stud. Tighten the 3 gearcase mounting bolts ( finger tight only ). Next, set the machine upright and tighten the gear case mounting bolts securely. This procedure will allow the superstructure to properly align itself with the center post bearing.

19) Lay the machine on it's front to mount the 3 support braces to the gearcase baseplate. Tighten the bolts securely.

20) To adjust the belt tension properly, position the belt over the pulleys. Insert a hammer handle or some other lever between the motor mounting brackets. Rotate the motor to the left as far as it will go. Tighten the nuts holding the motor mounting bracket. Check the tension of the belt, it should deflect about 1/2 inch. (see figure 1).

21) Set machine upright. Reinstall the agitator, agitator cap, service panel, water hoses and connect electrical supply.

I have a LG washing machine Model # WM2688H*M it has a slight leak that I traced to a small black hose. The hose is in the back of the machine that goes from the bottom of the drum to the top somewhere...


It's not likely the hose is leaking, but rather water is leaking from somewhere else and is running down the outside of that hose. Remove the washer top by taking out the two phillips head screws from the bottom of the plastic clips on the back side of the washer's top. Now, stand in front of the machine and use the palms of you hands to sharply push the top cover back about 2 inches, then lift the cover off. Look for the water leak. The most likely suspect is a water inlet valve.

Maytag washer wont drain hose ok model La105


Good day,
Remove front panel, 2 screws on bottom, lift bottom away and pull out.
Check to see if pump belt is broken, or extremely loose.
If loose, see if motor glide springs are free and pulling back on motor.

Reach under, and turn pulley of pump to see if it is free.
If it will not move. Stop.
Pull off pump to tube hose. Remove other hose on pump and remove.
Remove pump.
This machine is a known sock eater. Check hoses and pump, and if found clear.
Feel up in tube nipple for same.
If nothing, replace pump, or belts as needed.
Note: belts should be replaced as a a pair. Reinstall the pump, and adjust as necessary.

Thank you for using Fixya

Water not draing after wash cycle


No model number... Ok my best guess would be if it is a direct drive machine. The water pump may have locked up. easy to remove and check for free operation. From bottom of machine there are 2 metal clipps that hold the pump assembly on. Some clipps are safety screwed. remove screws and pry clpps out to the side. pull pump off. you may need to remove the hoses. If locked simply replace with new part. If a belt drive you should check the belt tension.

Washer squeeks when drum rotates during wash cycle


The 2 bushings that mount the motor to the body of the washing machine are causing this.

You can get just the updated bushings, or a kit of 2 updated bushings and a replacement belt which is probably a good idea to replace as long as you are in there.

Remove the back cover and inspect the job. It's self explainatory and took me less than 30 minutes to complete.....and it worked on the noise :)

Washing machine belt replacement


I found the exploded parts views for that model number branded as a Maytag. Look to see if the are the same on the link below:
http://www.partselect.com/AdvancedModelSearch.aspx?ModelNum=LWA60AW&mfgModelNum=PLWA60AW&fkMfgID=1
Use the parts diagrams as a reference.
Remove drain hoses, motor
Move motor inward while removing belt from pulley under tub
Three screws with star heads hold pump to motor and careful when removing pump--it could crack if it is frozen to motor shaft.

Squeeking noise from drum when drying


Bit of a long shot, but I once had a machine with a crack at the root of one of the spokes on the big pulley wheel on the end of the drum - made a nasty noise once every turn as the belt tension came on and off that spoke. Good indicator of this would be if you can make the squeak happen when you turn the drum by hand, but this stops when you take the drive belt off. If the noise is still there with the belt off, try removing the hose that leads from the base of the drum to the pump and use the hole that leaves to try and find if anything (stray bra wire?) has got stuck between inner and fixed drums. Check for the same thing between the front edge of the drum and the back of the door seal. On some machines, you can also get a little access where the condenser plugs into the back of the drum. Finally, give the pulley wheel a good shoogle up/down, left/right and back & forth to check the bearings are OK (another long shot). A
