Newbie Question How do I take the front panel and top off of my Maytag LAT2500AAE Washing Machine?

    Thank you.  That suggestion worked great.  I took the panel off to see where the machine was leaking from.  It is leaking at the base of the tub where the washer tub stem seal is.  I believe that this is probably too complicated for a lay person to attempt and that I need to call a repair person.  Is that your assessment too?

Look carefully under the front panel. there is a clip on either underside of the front panel. Insert a putty knife or screw driver in the clips to release. Pull the panel upward until the top clips are released. This is one of the best machines Maytag ever made.

    This machine may be worth repairing but that will be up to you. The tub seal has failed and is not that hard to replace as long as the sleeve bearings come off easily...problem is, Maytag made sure that a lay person would not take their repair business away because every model of Maytag requires at least 2 expensive, special tools to disassemble the machine. If you spend the money to repair, it wouldn't be a bad idea to replace the bearing at the base of the transmission.

it sounds like the shocks on the drum maybe failing. on this model the washing machine mother board is close to the outer drum. the out drum may have made contact with it. and not turning on the pump to let the water out.

I have a Maytag LAT2500AAE top load washer. The


check the balance ring on the tub just below the tub cover and tub cover gasket which can be done from the top of the machine by removing the top cover,while doing this pull and push tub from side to side and see if it moves easier in certain directions, if it does you may have a tub spring broken on the tub leading to an un balance condition cause the springs stabilize the tub like a shock absorber on an auto, if this is it then you need to access the lower unit area by removing the front cover of the unit there are screws at the toe kick panel to remove this panel

How do I change the washer belt on a Maytag Washer #LAT2500AAE


I figured out that the belt went on the bottom of the dryer. It was actually very easy to fix once I realized where the belt went. I made the mistake of opening the front cover of the washer first, which is why I did not see where to put the belt. Apparently, if the washer is not level (since I had too much for a load and it caused the washer to pull out from the wall), the belt shook itself loose.

I have Maytag LAT2500AAE. I took off the front cover and I see water leaking from the tub bearing during the rinse cycle. I think I need the Tub Bearing Repair Kit PS60151. Is this a difficult...


Tub bearing replacement on ANY Maytag can be difficult. Even for experienced technicians, it can take 1 to 2 hours as long as there are no surprises (corrosion, stubborn bolt etc). Also, all Maytag washers require specialized tools for removing certain components of the machine.

Maytag LAT2500AAE- unbalanced


see if it has 4 adjustable feet on each corner on the bottom
get a bubble level from a hardware store and turn the feet to raise or lower OR you could use something else to raise the sides until it is leveled by looking at the bubble level.

hope this helps
thanks for your rating
