Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a maytag model

I have a maytag washer model A511 ser# 117859 nc, I have no idea how old it is. It will not pump the wash water out, it will add more water in the rinse cycle and it spins in the spin cycle. some water must go out as it does not run over. Also, when the washing cycle is over the timer does not shut off it simply rolls into the next cycle and keeps on going. Do I fix it or buy a new one? Thank You

Maytag A511 has worked faithfully for 26 years.

Either the engine or the drum bearing are worn out and the rotor/drum is touching the stator/tub. It's normal wear and since replacement parts are no longer fabricated i think it's time to buy a new one.

Model A511 washer Agitator is not moving as vigorously as it used to. Removed front and found excessive oil residue in the bottom. Repair or buy ?

excessive oil . is usualy found under the machine / if inside / on side's of shell this could be water seal leakage . the 511 is a very good machine but its also very old . . agit problem is usualy in the belts and motor roller base . /try cleaning the pulleys and replace belt set / 2011124 and 2011125 / put a roller base set w springs . this will perk it up ,,use info on belt package for belt adjustment. they run loose. ( do not over tighten .)

Maytag A511 washer tub vibration

The tub should not become unbalanced over time. There suspension springs may wear unevenly, however. Replace all of the suspension springs and it should be fine.

How do i open the top on an old maytag A511 washer?

Hi, Remove the two screws holding the front panel to the cabinet. The screws are in the slanted part if the front panel.
After the [anel is removed, locate the two 3/8" screws in the upper corners holding the top to the cabinet. The top will raise up. I hope this helps.
Please let me know if I can assist you further.
