Why won't my Maytag Washer extract water properly from clothing after going through the complete cycle?


Belt tension spring faulty, belt loose. Pump partly blocked, look for coin caught in hoses. Internal clutch failed in gearbox, replace gearbox. Gearbox pulley wrongly adjusted, remove pulley, re-grease, re-install with correct clearance.

Maytag washer noise


Hello, If its making a loud squeeking/scraping noise, in my maytag that i repaired, the problem was the waterpump. If you turn the washer on it's side, you will see that it has a belt with three pully's on the bottom. One pulley is connected to the waterpump and right where the pulley meets the metal plate it's connected to, there should be a gold2_bing.gif coupling. This coupling sometimes comes loose and scrapes the metal plate on spin cycle (when the pulley is spinning) which causes the scraping/squeeking sound. If this is the case, you will see where the coupling has scraped a groove into the metal plate. The coupling will eventually catch while spinning and break entirely. The cheapest new water pump is $80.

Thanks

I have a maytag washer with a broken belt. Model no.SAV2555 AWW. how do you replace the belt. Thank You


I am not a repair professional. I am a 78 year old man who has been making his own repairs for about 50 years. So the washer or dryer ID doesn't mean much to me. I came to fixya looking for a schematic for an really old AM/FM radio and found that more than 4,700 people were asking for help with a washer repair. I recently had a washer repair of my own and at that time I found an excellent video which showed me how to take my machine apart. This video made it possible for me to do my own repair. If you are repairing a dryer or a front load washer I suggest you
go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good step by step trouble shooting and repair information on both washers and dryers as well as other appliances. If you have a direct drive top load washer and need help taking it apart this video is an early christmas present. I was so impressed with it that when I saw all these people needing help, I wanted to tell them about it. If you look at the back of your washer and the panel is solid (no small inspection plate to remove which would indicate you have a v-belt drive) chances are you have a direct drive and this video is just what you need. You can see it at www.acmehowto.com You will probably still need help in determining what the trouble is and how to fix it. After viewing the video or if you have a v-belt drive rather than a direct drive, I suggest you go to www.applianceaid.com where they have very good
trouble shooting and repair nformation on most
washers and dryers. I think you'll find what you need
there. Don't worry about the timer, they hardly ever
go bad. Good luck with it. If I have helped you, please rate my advice on fixya.

Washer will no longer spin - was making loud noise then started stinking as though a belt was burning and now won't spin at all? Is there a belt I can replace?


usually when the belt burns on a maytag it's a sign that a pump, motor or trans needs replacing. tilt machine back, remove belt from underneath & ck for restrictions in all 3 pulleys. If there's a burnt belt...replacing just the belt is a waste of money

How do you tighten the belt on magtag washer


Hello sunny31,
If you believe the belt is slipping then the belt will need to be removed and replaced. There aren't any belt tensioners in your washer.. Can you provide the specific model # with a response so I can provide you with more information on how to resolve your problem?
Regards,
Rick

Maytag SAV2555 will not spin


it does( withiut looking at it myself), sound like the pulley/helix are just slipping past eachother and not engaging one anoher, does the sloped side of the pulley(wehre it meshes with the helix appear to be rounded over???) thats really the only reason i could see to replace the pulley.. for get trying oto spin the belt can you grab hold of the p[uley and try spinning it directly????. rfeason i askl is that in order to replace the pulley, youll need to rease th springs around the bottom of tub, and remove the entire unit from the cabinet, after removing unit, turn unit upside down, you need to remove the motor,, then unbolt the 3 white legs form the outer tub, and remove the 3 brake pads bolted to underneath uint with 3/8 nuts, the stansion then will lifht up giving you room to remove the pulley. awful alot of work if not needed,

Maytag washer sav2555


the pulley will not remove very easily , it wold require removine the milk stool, motor and some other parts, not the easiest hing to do especially if not needed, the helix you removed, take a look at it , the sloped ends of it should create a pretty sharp angle, then a 90degree drop off, the slopes om the pulley should be the same, they should not apppear to be rounded off,helix is probly 10 bucks if needed and if its at the helix that you see the "slipping" and "clicking noise, before condeming the tranny i would start with tthe helix, if after re-installing it it still clicks up and over pully perhaps try adding another spacer under the bolt before tightening. the idea behind the pulley and helix is that depending on rotation of the transissiion, the helix "pushes against" the pulley adn spreads the brake plate, releasing the brake allowing the tub tospin freely

Wont spin and makes a noise


def needs a pully to add tension in order to spin. reconnect adn watch what it does. where does noise appear to come from??? sometimes the lower most "helix" strips out on machine and sounds as if theres amototr boat in you machine.Its the bottom most item on the centraal shaft of the transmission held o by a 1/2 bolt. if either that or the pulley above it strip it wont dissengage the brake assy and will "motor boat" with no action from transmission

Belt installation


repacing the belt on a neptune is simple. unplug the unit and move it away from the wall.. now remove the 4 screws holding the access panel in place. loop the belt over the end of the motor shaft so that the grooved side of the belt catches the grooves on the shaft. now simply feed it around the tub pulley. if you find the belt keeps coming off you might have a bearing problem tht has caused the tub to shift. look for fine plastic powder, almost dust like, that would be the pulley eating into the back of the tub
