How do I open up my maytag washer (MAVT734EWW)

How do I open up my maytag washer so I can change out the motor? I'm pretty sure the motor is burnt up. I took the belt off, and the motor only runs for a few seconds before freezing up.

SOURCE: maytag washer repair

I had the repair guys out 3 months ago maytag paid for labor I paid $150 for seal and bearings, tub froze and belt broke. the tub now is making the loud screams that others complain about I contacted maytag and reapir servce and talked with the tech. this machine is a piece of S$%^ the seal fails on a regular basis and bearings get water in them. I just missed my 3 month waranty and will not pay for that repair again. people at home depot agree that this machine is trouble. the machine must be taken completely down from the top to replace the bearings and or the belt. the tub must be removed. If you call maytag they will pay for the labor but not the parts.

SOURCE: Top Loading Maytag washer will not rinse/drain and spin.

you may have a locked up pump causing the motor to not run, check to see if you can turn the belts under the unit, if so then you might have a timer with a burnt contact.
hope its the pump as it is cheaper then the timer to replace.

SOURCE: drum isn't spinning but motor is

check inner tub fastens, if they check ok, replace the transmission. note: you will need special tools to change this, if you have them great, if not, you would be better off calling a&e factory service for the repair, 18009059505.

My maytag performa top loading washer will not spin or drain, what could be the problem and how do i fix it?


HELLO THERE
If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows: If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt. If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

My dryer has power but the drum will not turn


Belt, Motor, motor start capacitor or Door switch. you going to have to open the back cover off and see what is taking place. check belt making sure good and tight, idler pulley may be worn also. If motor only making a hums sound when you press start it may be burnt out. you can check if the motor is good or bad by removing the belt and manually rotate the shaft motor pulley, if the motor is stiff and impossible to rotate manually, it also a sign the motor burnt out. if the motor turn and run freely without the belt, the problems maybe with the pulley or the drum, try to rotate the drum and making sure it rotate freely using very little effort. if door switch faulty, the unit will not work.

Belt squeek during rinse cycle


Mine the same concern, I took it apart and found the thermo fuse in the motor had a bad terminal. Maytag parts man said you must get a new motor even though the fuse has a part # on it and is easy to change. I made temporary repairs until I find a fuse from a used parts machine. Scott

Loud squeal during wash and spin cycles, maytag atlantis washer


Squealing normal occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks. Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment, normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the belt.

If part of a belt gets torn and it is long enough, it will hit any part of the washing machine within range and make a clicking noise at every revolution of the motor.

I am pretty sure you need new belts. You should be able to remove a few screws and open the back cover. Between the pulleys there is a tensioner...loosen that so you can remove the belt easily. replace it with a new belt and adjust the tension.

hope this helps
