Washer motor for maytag machine

I just installed a motor in my Maytag washing machine. It was not the exact one, however it was similar in size, voltage and amps. So I installed it and it ran fine for a while, and then something was burning. I stopped the washer, inspected it and the belt underneath had been chewed and melted. Is it possible the motor was too fast or did I tighten the motor too much and as a result, there was not enough play for the belt on the pulleys?

Thanks...Wayne

How do I install the agitator in a Maytag Continental washer model:MVWC200XW0


Not sure if it fits your particular case, but lots of good info on YouTube... Just search 'install', 'agitator', and your Model #.

Might not find the exact match, but I'm guessing they are pretty similar installations.

I have a Maytag A9900 washer machine and I'm searching on the net for a repair manuel, not the operator manual which I already have. Thanks Jacques


Hello Jacques,

Here is the link to that manual while it doesn't list your exact model number its going to be VERY similar to just about every Maytag washer that was made from the 1960's until 2005 so while some parts may be slightly different its very close

May tag Neptune showing codes


Error codes appear when there are problems with the door, the inflow and drainage of water and the motor.

Do
Your Maytag Neptune washer displays the "do" help code when the washing machine is trying to start a cycle, but the door is open or not locked properly. If this message is displayed, close the door securely and restart the washing cycle.

FL
The "FL" code indicates that the washing machine was unable to lock the door after you closed it. Open and close the door tightly, then restart the washing cycle.

Sd
The "Sd" code indicates that you have added too much detergent to the washing machine and your laundry has too many suds. The machine will stop displaying this code if it has successfully run the suds recovery cycle, which removes the excess suds from the wash load. If the code remains, reduce the amount of detergent in the load. Use less detergent for similar loads of laundry in the future.

PF
The "PF" code indicates that a power failure has occurred. Restart the wash cycle. If the code still appears, check that the washing machine is still plugged in to the electrical outlet.

Nd
The "nd" code indicates that your Maytag Neptune is not draining as it should. Check that the drain hose isn't kinked and that the stand pipe isn't clogged. If you find either of these problems, fix them before restarting the washing cycle.

LO
The "LO" code appears when the washing machine has finished the selected wash cycle, but cannot unlock the door. Verify that the door is closed properly, push the "Off" button, and wait two minutes. The door should unlock and the error code will disappear. If the error code remains, unplug the washing machine, wait two minutes and plug it back into the electrical outlet.

Lr
The "Lr" code indicates that the washing machine's motor is not running as it should. Have your Maytag Neptune washing machine serviced by a certified Maytag repair professional. Maytag Neptune Priority One Service: (888) 462-9824

NF
The "nF" code appears when the washing machine has tried to fill with water and has failed. Verify that the inlet hoses aren't kinked and that the faucets are fully open.

Od
The "od" code appears when you must open the washer door. The Maytag Neptune washer requires that you open the door between cycles.

Other Codes
* If your Maytag Neptune washing machine displays any codes that are not listed above, contact Maytag Neptune Priority One Service for assistance. Maytag Neptune Priority One Service: (888) 462-9824

I have the kenmore 90 series top load electric washer. Model #110.92291100. I am trying to find out if it's a 3cubic or a 4cubic size. I am replacing it and I want the exact same size. It says Heavy Duty...


I couldn't find the exact size using the model number provided... i would bet that it's a 3.5 - 4 cu.ft. model... My suggestion is to get something other than a GE washing machine... Go with a Kenmore, Whirlpool or Maytag
