Question about Maytag Legacy Series Top Load Washer
I also have a Maytag Legacy series TL washer and I'm experiencing all of the same signs and symptoms as many others seem to be (leaking water and grinding during spin cycles). I like to fix things myself because I'm cheap, a student, and broke, therefore I'm simply looking for any advice on repairing this thing. I have the machine apart and have found the rusty water splash line on the inside of the unit and I have removed the aggitator as well. Now I've gotten to the point where I need the special tool to go further. So, my questions are: 1)Is this problem worth fixing? 2)Can it be fixed. 3) Can I stop the noise problem when it's spinning and how if so? 4) Where do I find this magical removal tool and how much do they cost. 5) What parts would be recommended that I purchase? (new seal, bearings, etc. ...)
I thank you for any information you can provide me and I appreciate your response.
We too had this problem. Called out the appliance repair man....He took away our machine. Had to fix the Seal, Bearing, and belt. Brought it back after having it a few days and Now SMELLS like rubber burning. After spending almost 300 dollars my husband had to get under it and found a spring stretched to the hilt. We are replacing the spring and we hope no more fire stinky rubbery smell. BUT it doesn't leak nor does it sound like a plane taking off anymore. IF I could do it again??? I would have bought a new washer without all the frills just because I have done some looking and see that this is a "normal" problem for this washer. AND it may happen AGAIN. Wish us luck but that is what we had done. As far as the appliance repair man?? THEY do not know what is wrong with it and why it "STINKS". Should have just had the hubby fix it.
