Ay-to-day wear and tear can damage your washer's drain hose after a few years. This hose is made out of rubber, so simply the force of the water gushing through could damage it. In this situation, the best thing to do is to get a replacement. It's not a complicated process and can be done at home without the help of a professional. Read on to find out the steps involved so your project can be a success.
Step 1 - Record Specifications Carefully read your owner's manual to find the specifications for the washing machine drain hose. If you are unable to locate it, look at the steel tab at the back of the washing machine, and write down the model and serial number instead.
Step 2 - Purchase New Hose Head to your hardware store and show this information to a representative to get help in finding an appropriate replacement drain hose.
Step 3 - Cut the Power and Water Before you start replacing the washing machine drain hose, make sure to pull the power cord out the wall socket. Better yet, turn off the power supply to the washing machine at the circuit breaker.
Similarly, turn the knob on the water supply line to the washer. If you cannot locate it then temporarily turn off the water altogether. Afterward, lift and shift the drain tube into a bucket, so that any accumulated fluid in the hose will fill this instead of spilling out all over the floor. Step 4 - Remove the Old Drain Hose Your drain hose will be held in place by clamps attached at the back of the washing machine. Hold the clamp with pliers and unscrew it out of its position with a screwdriver. After removing the clamp, inspect it. If it is not damaged or corroded by rust it can be used again, but if not toss it away and install a new clamp after the replacement hose is in place.
Step 5 - Secure the New Drain Hose Take the new hose and slide the clamp on; it should go through the straight end. Now, place the hose onto the connector located at the back of the washing machine, and slide the clamp to where the hose rests on the connector. With a wrench, make the hold of the clamp tight. Make sure it is fit in properly so that you will have no problems with leakage.
Step 6 - Put the Machine Back and Test Place the washing machine back in position, and reconnect the drain tube to the pipe. Then, turn on the power supply and open the water supply so you can test that everything is working as it should.

Dryer tub replacement...i need to replace the dryer tub. when dryer is on it makes a scrubbing noise


there may be something stuck in between the tub and the outer wall, have you tried to make sure this area is clear first. Make sure you unplug the dryer first before removing the back panel, then use a flashlight to check the tub and surrounding area. id do this first before i go to the expense of replace the tub section

Looking for replacement bearings for the outer tub to inner tub on our Maytag FAV6800AWW, S/N 13389034ET. Don't want to replace the whole outer tub assy.


It sounds like you may have to replace the Outer Tub to replace the Outer Tub bearing .....ain't that just peachy.....good job Maytag design team.

If you are the original owner I would press Maytag hard to replace the Outer Tub based on the Outer tub Bearing failure. Their warranty states third thru tenth year Drive Motor, Outer Tub and Sealed Transmission. I’m sure you will need to have a certified Maytag repair service tech certify the failure and fix action required. Why should an Outer Tub bearing replacement cost you $430. Another poor design issue of this machine.

Tub bangs and seems to be spinning out of round


One of the support arms on the back of the spin basket (stainless steel tub) is broken and causing it to spin in the fashion you describe. The only fix is to replace the spin basket. Using it in its current condition will cause serious damge to the outer tub shell. Let me know if you decide to replace it or need assistance locating a replacement tub. I can assist you in how to disassemble the washer and how to reinstall a new tub. Sorry...I wish this was better news.
