Maytag Washer SAV3655AWW Brake Pads Broken Apart

The below link are the brake pads that have broken apart......

The attached photo is the shot I took of one of the disintegrated brake pad.

I am hoping to get some advice on how to replace these brake pads. It does not appear to look all that easy.

Tips and advice are greatly appreciated.

Not hard at all to replace.

First run the belt off the main pulley and loosen all the brake pad bolts.

Turn the transmission pulley in the spin direction while holding the transmission from turning and you can usually get the transmission pulley helix all the way up the ramp and it should stick to keep the brakes released.

Than remove the bolts from one pad, stick the new pad in and put the bolts in. Do this with all three pads.

If the transmission pulley won't lock and stay in one place with the brake released then get a helper to hold the transmission and pulley so the brake will stay released, (I've never had to have a helper, usually if you hold the transmission in place while you turn the pulley as far as it will go it will go to the top of the helix ramp and stick).

Just kind of a reach around to the rear pad bolts, you could remove the motor and pump assembly and it makes it easier but I've never had to do that.

Thank you for your advice and technique to replace the brake pads. I ordered the pads and installed them per your description and everything went great! The brakes are stopping the basket on a dime. Many thanks.
