To replace a transmission on a Maytag requires a few manufacture specific tools. When you get your transmission from either your local appliance parts store or on line from the manufacture, inside will be an instruction list on how to replace the transmission. On the front page of the directions, maytag includes the part numbers for thier specialty tools as well. The one you specifcally asker about is called a spring compressor tool. It is basically a long threaded bolt that will take the pressure off the 200 lbs spring underneath. And while I have seen people get them off (at great personal danger to themselves) without this tool, I have yet to see on go back together without one. But again, with most local appliance parts stores, if you ask for a maytag spring comperssor tool, they should know what you are talking about and might even have a tool loaner program. If you still have troubles, drop me a note back.

Kenmore top Load 60 Series, Model 110-28932790 Grinding noise during the spin cycle.


The shaft that attaches to the agitator protrudes out of the top of the transmission. The brake and clutch assy's are mounted on this shaft at the bottom close to the transmission case. These assy's are held in place on the shaft using a spacer and retainer clip. As the appliance ages, the spacer and/or the retaining clip and or the lower portion of the shaft become worn to the point that they will fall off of the shaft and into the clutch assy, and will make a grinding noise.

How can we troubleshhot a Maytag toploader that


You probably have something stuck in the drain pump. You will have to remove the hoses from the pump to extract it.
I can not be more help without a model number. Maytag builds several styles of top load washers. They all access differently.

Trying to replace the motor on my maytag toploader washing machin


Hi There,
On the bottom of the front panel there should a philip head screw right above each fron adjusting leg.
Remove these 2 screws. Open the cover and lift up on the front between the drum & cover there are 2 metal clips holding the top down. Swing the top up and remove the front panel. The motor is right in front on the lower left. Let me know if this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

Transmission problem of a washer Whirlpool model LXR7244JQO


Good morning.
The problem lays in the transmission. From outside when you turn the universal (connector) the bowl with the brakes don't turn with the main shaft. When you open the transmission, remove the clip of the big plastic gear. After you lift up the plastic gear you will notice that one or two of the plastic parts are worn down. By replacing you will solve the problem.

Whirlpool toploader gearbox/clutch removal


Last Night I took the machine apart to find clutch/brake assy ok gearbox was also ok then I noticed shaft coupling was different than new part I had in stock, new part made totally of nylon, old part fitted to machine has steel insert built into nylon. this was not fully located onto motor shaft and the first 1/4" of motor shaft had been stripped back to round ( no flat faces) also inside the steel lined bore of the nylon coupling had been worn to round.I replaced with new coupling of nylon and ensured both nylon parts fully pushed home onto motor shaft and gearbox shaft with any freeplay / gap being allowed in the rubber drive link. This has worked for now but expect trouble in future with worn motor shaft.

No hot water for a Maytag topload washer


Turn the water off and disconnect the hot wat hose from the spigot and the machine. There should be a screen filter in one end. Check to see if the screen is clogged. If it is then replace it. If not then replace the water valve

Maytag washer sav models


If you have the topload maytag as listed, It is possible for a transmission to have both symptoms, but it doesn't usually happen as you describe. If something came apart inside the clutch causing the shaft to pull up and keep the brake released, but also allowed the clutch to slip, this is possible.

I would suspect a brake or thrust bearing or both before a transmission. If you are able to turn the basket easily by hand, the brake is not applying for some reason. The thrust bearing will wear down so that it doesn't completely release the brake causing a slow spin. I find these two parts to cause more trouble than transmissions, but I do find bad transmissions occasionaly also.  Post back if you want to know how to check them.
