Question about Maytag LAT2300 Top Load Washer
I have a model LAT9206BAE. It goes through all steps but it won't drain all of the water out. I have checked the drain hoses, no kinks or clogs.
Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. Gently tip the unit to the rear and block it up on something solid so that the front of the machine is high enough up that you can reach under the the front of the machine. I use THREE 2x4" blocks nailed together with blocks under BOTH front legs. The pump is in the right front corner of the base. Grasp the pump pulley and see that it turns freely. You will also be turning the motor but that is fine. If it turns freely start the fill cycle and let it fill until there is about 8 inches of water in the tub. Have someone select spin and then WATCH the pump pulley. Make sure it is not intermittently stopping or that the pump drive belt is not slipping. If all of this checks good the next step is to drop the drain hose and see if the water in the tub will drain by gravity at a pretty good rate. If it does not drain rapidly with the drain hose below the wash tub with water in it then there is something in the bottom of the Tub blocking the drain hole. <br /> You will have to remove the front panel by remove the 2 phillips head screws near the bottom front corners. Then pull the front cover toward you for a little over 30 degress and remove the panel. There are spring 2 clips at the top of the panel your disengaging. <br /> Remove the TUB drain hose from the bottom of the wash tub and check in the hole for any obstructions. Next remove the hose from the top of the pump and check the pump impeller. Using both hands... one on the pump pulley and one finger in the pump top hole hold the impeller and turn the pump drive pulley. It should NOT slip. If it is slipping you will have to change the pump. <br /> That is pretty much it for trouble shooting a drain problem other than making sure the drive belt is ok. If you can not clear an obstruction then the top of the machine has to be opened and the inner wash tub has to be removed. I wil help you with that IF you end up with somehing between the inner and outer wash tub blocking the drain hole. Just respond here and I will get back to you. <br /> <br /> Parts diagram for pump Item 28 and washing machine: <a rel='nofollow' href="http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=45823">http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=45823</a><br /> <br /> Thanks for choosing FixYa.<br /> <br /> Kelly <br /> <br /> <br />
