Part 916708 is the belt I think you should be using, If you still have the belt look at the side for any numbers and compare to your purchase. I know there is a couple of belts and one is bigger.

Clothes do not spin as much as they used to when i use the gentle cycle It seems to spin much more effectively on the main wash cycle but I do not use this cycle much.This machine is 20yrs. and has given...


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

If your washer is a front loader it MIGHT be that the belt is slipping, although I would expect it to slip more on the main wash spin cycle than the gentle spin cycle! Sorry to ask but are you sure that it doesn't spin as much on gentle as it used to?
Just in case it is a belt problem, here are my guidance notes on having it changed ;-0)
-----------------------------------------
Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!
If it turns out to be the motor, it is false economy to just have the brushes changed. Experience of others is that the brushes may only last months unless, that is, the motor is totally refurbished.
Hope this is your problem solved.
Good luck,
John C

My spin cycle doesn't remove all the water from the clothes so I have to run the spin cycle twice. Does this mean its probably the belt?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

It depends on whether you think it is spinning at the right (fast) speed or not. Often if the wash and rinse cycles go OK but the spin does not it is the belt which is slipping.
Now- I do not know your particular machine, whether it is a front or top loader. I normally try and help with front loader problems!
Just in case it IS, what follows is my 'standard' document for the replacement of belts, copied and pasted 'cos it's quicker ;-0)

Belt spins but tub won't somtimes during spin cycle


Worth going at this a bit at a time.

First look at the routing of the belt. What keeps it tight? has anything that ought to be keeping it tight worked loose?

Now take the belt off and spin the tub by hand. Does it move freely? Does it make any funny noises? Does the motion feel lumpy or gritty? This will help you decide whether you have a bearing problem or an old sock that's got where it shouldn't have.

If either of these tests hints at a problem, investigate further and fix it.

Then, regardless of whether you found or fixed anything, fit a new belt. Quite often the problem is just that as they get old, they stretch and then don't grip so tightly - and if it has been slipping because something else was loose or stuck, the heat generated will since have made it stretch anyway.

Maytag Performa PAV2300AWW screaching noise, belt problem, pulley broke


My Maytag Performa was making the loud squealing noise. I changed out the water pump/bearing, took care of the problem.
Putting a new belt on just help burn up the bearing (they needed replacing) and probably ruined the new belt. Probably seized the water pump bearing and the belt jumped and broke the motor pully. A washing machine motor is very strong, when that h20 pump bearing seized (or possibly some bearings jamed up) the motor kept on turning that belt and the plastic pully gave in. You'll need to replace that also. If the h20 pumb bearing is turning freely, likely the bearings jammed up but or now loose. That bearing should be tight, no slack or play in it. You can probably wobble the pully on it all around while turning it. The slightest slack is too much.

My Magtag Performa washer has been shaking in the spin cycle very violently lately. The floor has not changed, so I can't blame an uneven floor. I'm assuming the belt may need to be tighten or replaced. ...


first I would check your drain pump.. you may have something blocking the water flow... this will cause the water not to fully drain and your machine will have a out of balance load...a loose belt will just slip and make noise,,,

there is a panel in the back you can remove to check the drain pump...let me know if this is helpful...

Squeal that sounds like belt spippage


The motor slides back and forth so there is know way to tighten the belt.The new  belt is needed if your old one shows any ware or if has shiny look to it which would mean its been getting hot and slipping.
