Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a 10 yr old Maytag which seems on the surface to be working fine. However I have noticed that when I take the clothes out they are all twisted and wrung around themselves and consequently bye the time I get them untwisted they are full of wrinkles. It sounds like a strange problem but it is to the point I cannot hang dry any of my clothes because they are full of massive wrinkles! What could be causeing this?? It has nothing to do with useing fabric softener because I use a downy ball in the wash.

I would make sure your agitator is tight. On top of the agitator is a cap that usually screws down make sure it is on tight. Sometimes there is a screw under it as well. If the agitator is loose it can cause the clotheing to tangle on a spin cycle.

Do the cloths seem like they are more than just damp when you take them out? At that age it may be in need of a new drive belt as the machine ages the belt stretches. You might also try washing smaller loads. Let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Spin doesn't seem to work - clothes are dripping

Sounds like the belt is slipping. I would check that first. You don't say what model, or how old it is.

Old Maytag a207 seems to run well, but gives poor rince.

Change out the pump belt and drive belt underneath the washer.
Remove the center filter from the agitator and clean it. It will twist out and pull up.

Fridge running hot!

One you can to try and extend the life of the fridge is to vacuum off the compressor and coils. They can be located either behind the toe grill on the bottom front or through an opening on the back of the fridge. It is natural for a fridge to blow warm air.

Have a 7 yr old maytag dryer it seems to heat up fine and everything but we have to redry clothes 2 or three times and dryer vent is not plugged

You possibly have a stripped blower wheel . On Maytags , either blower or clogged vent is the problem when too long to dry . Suggest removing vent hose and feel if you have good exhaust air . If not , blower wheel bad , if so , vent problem . Try drying a load without vent hose connected to dryer .

Black mark on clothes after washed in Maytag top load washer.

Check and make sure the seal at the bottom of the washer is not wore out. Alot of times you will get grease from the bearins and drum assembly if this wears out.
