    Why won't my Maytag washer A48t drain? Replaced belts when it also wouldn't spin. Now it spins, but does not drain.

    If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing. Keep in mind that any water in the washer will pour out of the hoses when removed. Also check drain hose.

    Whirlpool ite6234d thin twin could someone tell me in detail where the belt is located in the washer?

    I can not find your model number that you posted.
    I can tell you that all whirpool thin twins up to last year were direct drive with no belt except for the dryer section. Whirlpool stackers from the early eighties did have a washer belt if yours is this old replace the entire machine.

    Washer fills but won't agitate or spin

    Try making sure the belts are actually on the drum, probably have to turn upside down. Sounds silly but a lot of simple things are missed.

    I am getting an F1 error right after the lid locks on all wash cycles. what does this mean?

    oh god no you poor person there is a huge argument and an even bigger world wide lawsuite against whirlpool for the famous f1 problem its a fault in the pcb board. in some cases though more so now days if you contact whirlpool they will arrange for a tech to come to your home and fix it for you free of charge. its an expensive repair and is common to happen again but after 3 yrs of fighting the company is in most cases happy to fix free of charge in order to stay there reputation . so give them a call in the mean time press cancell 3 times then re start wash and it should go all the way through wash till its fixed

    best of luck to you be tuff on them

    Diagram with replacement belt doesn't seem to match old manual

    I haven't worked on a belt drive but here is the Sears parts site for your washer with diagrams of the console, drive system etc. You may get a better idea of how to replace the belt from these.

    Here also is the Whirlpool / Amana installation and maintenance document for Amana belt drive washers. It may look similar to yours.$FILE/Amana_Searcy_TL_Washer.pdf

    The other thing I'd check is Whirlpools list of documentation for their laundry products. Check some of the washers that they make for one that looks like yours and you should get a better idea.

    I have an older model Kenmore washer - stopped spinning and aggitating - I took the control panel off, how do I reach the belt?

    Your problem may not be a belt some Whirlpool built Kenmore washers are direct drive and have a coupler instead of a belt. The coupler is located on top of the motor. It consists of three parts two with prongs and one with holes for each of the prongs. If this is broken or badly worn the washer will not agitate or spin. Good luck. Oh the drive coupler part number is 285753A.
