I have a maytag top load washer the washer will drain but will not spin


Maytag washers have two belts one for turning the pump and the other for making it spin. Sounds like the belt for the spin needs to be replaced. It is something that you can do. Maytag washer belts are quite easy to change. Hope this helpedd. Thank you for using Fix ya.

Our maytag neptune front load wash machine squeaks right before it changes directions in the wash cycle. what's wrong with it?


Your belt is stretched...........

There is only one belt, you have to access it from the back, removing the center panel. These belts are really tight when you install the new one you have to rotate it on, and you may thing the belt is too small, but it requires force. Some models you can move motor by loosening the lock bolt to gain some play, usually not much if any.

Remember to unplug before service, and watch for sharp metal edges....

I NEED INTO GET INTO THE TOP OF THE WASHER TO REPLACE THE OPEN LID KILL SWITCH


You should be able to remove / open the top control panel (rear top) screws and tip it out forward to gain access to the lid switch. Be careful of the small air line that goes to the pressure switch. If that comes unhooked your machine will over fill.

How di change the belt on a 2000 maytag top load washer?


HI. you may have a defective idler pulley. excessive bearing clearance can cause the belt to slip off at times. A worn belt will slip off as well. i suggest gaining access to the belt to inspect for damage. you can start by pressing in the middle of the longest straight run. It should deflect no more that one inch. also inspect the belt for cracks, frayed edges or other signs of excessive wear. if any damage or excessive looseness is found, replace asap. It could also be stretched.

((You can check the pulley by removing the belt and physically rotating the pulley, if the pulley has excessive wobbling or shifting, replace it))

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
