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?

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

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

My maytag washer mav9501eww does not spin, but it drains and it does agitate

Not sure if this will help, but I had the exact same problem on a Maytag top loader. With the machine powered off, spin the wash drum clockwise with your hands. It should be very loose initially and then will tighten up. Unfortunately I don't know the exact mechanism that makes this work, but it did work for mine.

I hope this helps...good luck!
