SOURCE: washing machine belt replacement

The repair sounds worse than it is.

2 hose clamps
4 big bolts
3 torx screws
a little wiggling and viola!

hints: take a good look (or digital pix) of the belt before you remove the pump, keep a few large towels around to handle the water in the hoses and to cover the front edge of the machaine to make it more comfortable when you're removing and installing the motor, the connector has a latch you have to press while removing the cable, the mounts for the motor frame/pump assy. need to be sprung out a bit when reinstalling.

Comment: the shaft from the motor is "double-D" shaped and slips into a plastic fitting in the middle of the pump. I don't see how you can break the pump unless you drop the motor assy on it...

Kudos to "sir fixalot" for giving me the courage to rip in to it...

SOURCE: amana tandem 7300 stopped ,door is locked wash

Door won't unlock
Did all of the water drain out of the washer during the spin? Select DRAIN & SPIN to remove any water remaining in the washer. The washer door will unlock at the end of the drain.
Is the door locked and is the "Add Garment" light on? Press START/PAUSE once. The door will unlock.

How to replace the thermistor on lg front loader washer model WM24887HWM.

There are two thermistors. The one most likely the issue is the one one the bottom of the outer drum. Videos on YouTube or repairclinic.com or appliancepartspros.com will show takintop off, taking control panel off, then finally taking front of washer off. Then very easy to replace gat pesky $6 part. If you are slightly dexterous, you can turn washer on it's side(if you don't have a pedestal), and replace the thermistor directly by reaching around a bit. Good luck.

Just purchased a LG 8500HSA Mega Front Load Washer Special Order! What is the Pedestal Model Number?

Please check your model number. 8500HSA does not cross to anything on LG.COM.

Universal pedestals are for sale at Sears, Home Depot, Lowers, and Best Buy. The pedestal and machine will bolt together, that is, a bolt will run upward from the pedestal into threaded bolt holes in the bottom of the washer. If you can measure the distance from bolt hole to bolt hole on the bottom of the washer, you can check to see if the universal pedestal fits before you buy it.

Several months ago I took my front loaders off the pedestals. The pedestals were kind of nice for handling the clothes but about 40% of the time I spilled either detergent, bleach, or softener because the pedestal put the drawer too high for me.

Amana washer, how do you replace belt

front loader from the back, top loader from bottom by laying it on the side

I need to change the belt on front loader amana tandem 7300

The back doesn't come off - the 'shell' (top and sides) come off. Then you should be able to get to belt from the side, you'll need a lot of room to work with it.

My washer jumps around when spinning. this happens intermittently

if it is a front loader and on a pedestal make sure it is level not just front to back but side to side also. Here are some of the reasons a front loader shakes violently.
1-- not level
2-- unbalanced load... washing 1 item or large comforter
3-- Wrong soap.. using reg detergent instead of HE
4-- bolts mounting mach to pedestal are loose. They are located above the drawer. two for front and two for rear.
5-- Faulty shocks.. requires tech to repair
6-- unhooked springs.. requires tech to diag and repair
7-- rear bearing failure. can be checked by pushing up on top front edge of basket and looking for movement independent of outter tub. Sometimes you can feel a clicking of the bearing moving up and down when you do this. This repair usually costs more than the machine is worth if very old. Ignoring this problem can lead to more damage, water leakage, and possibly fire.


Don't...Unless you have a concrete floor you will never be satisfied with the pedestal. Your front loader will shake a lot more. People buy these things then I go to there house with a "shaking" problem and then they get mad at me because I tell them it's because of the pedestal. Front loaders were designed on concrete floors so they're only going to work like they say on concrete floors. Do a little research before you make that decision please. Not to mention they're about 200 dollars or more. Just a heads up I don't mean to bring ya down.
