To remove the trans you have to remove the agitator, lift off cap on agitator there will be i believe a 5/16 or 7/16 bolt remove that carefully because dog ears right at top will fall out, slide out agitator and tran should come out.

Maytag centenial won't spin


Your going to check the belt and pulley inside the machine but let me warn you first, this is a knuckle busting nightmare of a machine, and if your not fond of the idea of bleeding, grease and pain, call a repair company. I'll post a few examples to help you make your mind on the topic.
Belt wore out

Had to remove pump-not easy. Nothing wrong with pump, but had to trash it to get it off the motor shaft, so I had to replace it, too.

Pop up top of cabinet and remove front panel. (I leaned unit back against a wall to facilitate internal access once panel was removed.)


Remove motor assy - 4 screws & connector.

Remove 3 pump screws (torx) and 2 hoses. Pry pump off motor shaft (not easy). I used a heat gun to help expand the plastic fitting on the motor shaft.

Remove old belt, put on new belt. (Do not use automotive belt-this belt is designed to slip because it also spins the tub. The tub will not spin when it's full of water, and the pump will not pump the water if the tub is bogging down the pump. Plus, you will probably overheat the motor.)

Press new pump back on motor shaft (advise not to re-use old pump as seals were probably damaged by removal process.)

Caution: Pressing pump onto motor shaft may cause pump rotor to bind in housing. Try to press it on a little too far so you back off slightly.

Replace pump screws.

Replace motor, giving attention to belt alignment.

Replace motor screws and connector.

Re-attach hoses on pump.

Button up cabinet.

Done.

The hardest part was removing the pump. If not for that, it would have been a 15-min, $20 repair.

Because I felt it wise to replace the pump also, it was a $70 repair.

Drive pump leaked

It took some trial and error but overall not a difficult project.

1. Take the front covers off.
2. Undo the pully spring to loosen belt
3. Remove belt off idler pulley wheel and free up belt from the large wheel.
4. Disconect the wiring harness and the hoses.
5. Undo the motor mounting bolts (4)
6. Take motor out of washer and remove the 3 screws holding the pump to the motor.
7. The pump had melted to the shaft and required I chisel the pump off of the shaft.
8. Attach new pump paying attention to where the belt is positioned.
9. Reattach the motor bolts, hoses, and wiring harnes.
10. Attach the belt and test the pump.
11. Put the front back on

How do i remove the air pump assembly off my craftsman 6HP air compressor, Model Number #919.152930. seems like its bolted directly to motor.


It is in fact bolted directly to the motor. You should be able to do any repairs necessary without removing the pump from the motor. I am not sure of the set up of that motor. I'm not sure if undoing that plate will also remove that side of the motor. (Something you probably don't want to do.) If you see other screws or bolts under the plate I would assume that you are safe to remove the pump plate from the motor.

Kenmore 80 series model 110 after wash clothes are left soaking


when empty and off, open the lid and see if you can rotate the inner wash basket by hand. if you can easily, then the clutch is worn. This will prevent the basket from going into a high spin and wringing the clothes out. Replace the clutch by removing the top control panel, removing the clips that hold the cabinet, pull cabinet off, remove drain pump clips and pump, remove motor clips and motor, remove transmission (3 bolts). Now you will have access to the clutch, replace as needed, reverse dissasembly to complete. remember to unplug.

Zanussi FJS1225W won't spin


motor brushes can be replaced in situ but you will find it easier to remove the motor.

take the rear cabinet half off and undo electrical connections to motor. motor is held in by 4 bolts. undo and motor will slip out.

brushes are located towards the end away from the pulley and held in by 2 small bolts. undo, withdraw brushes and see if badly worn

easier way is to check continuity across the brushes with the motor in situ using a multimeter
