hey good for you thats an eazy one .pull the washer out abit and then tip so the top resting on wall behind.be careful dose not slip out from under but ihave done it a hundred times as a repairman.before replacing the belt inspect the motor pulley,its plastic and they do melt.also inspect the pump pulley making sure it turns freely and the spot welds are not broken joinning the pulley to the pump shaft...........other wise just spin the old belt off and spin the new belt on.the belt goes on a total of three pulleys .thats it if you need any other help you can email .

3E has something to do with the motor control. Apparently the design of this machine allows a water leak either from the water intake box or down a rubber hose which runs along with the motor wire harness. The water tracks to the harness and motor and shorts the whole mess out. a.k.a. fried motor.
pull the back plate off (3 screws) and look at the motor where the wire harness plugs into it. Notice a bunch of green stuff- that is corrosion from the electrical short circuit causing your problem. See the rust build up on the side rail below the motor (as there will be none on the side adjacent) this is indicative of a water leak.
Our machine started doing this within the first week and we had the "service" people come out and "fix" it, but it appeared they did nothing. When I opened the machine up I discovered the problem when I ohmed out the rotor contacts in the motor wire harness and found it to be open instead of the factory specs of appx 2.5 ohms.
Maytag (now Whirlpool) does not want to send me a new motor and harness because of their bad design. The machine is a sealed unit only 23 months old. Note to all...do not buy Maytag or Whirlpool. That Maytag repair man is sitting on his bum because the company does not care about their consumers and their cheaply made products (sold at high markups).

I had the same exact problem, called a repairman to take a look..he informed me the motor has burnt out! His first thought was the transmission, and said having the motor burnt out is better since it is less expensive.
