Maytag washer

3 posts in this topic

I have replaced belts on this wonderful Maytag top load washer but they seem loose. The old belts were glazed and I thought maybe it might be ok. I put through quite a heavy load and they came out wonderful and I thought I had it but not so. After the  machine has done more than one load it leaves water in the tub. I removed front panel to watch.... and it was spinning.... slowly and motor seemed hot although that may be normal. Anyway being a samurai at heart  and while machine was spinning slowly I summed up my courage  and pushed the motor back as it is on a slide and lo and behold the thing sped up and away it went. How can I adjust that slide is there a a spring to replace of maybe the motor is shot:yikes:. Help. Thanks

The pump belt is slipping. Tighten it by loosening the three pump retaining screws and sliding the pump to the right to tighten the belt. Good to go, buddy-row.

also the motor sits on a slide kit make sure to lubricate that also or it will never tension the belt correctly
