To anyone with experience,

Using the Samurai's posts about E3 codes for the Maytag Neptune (http://appliantology...-be-error-code/ ; http://appliantology...-e3-error-code/ ), I successfully diagnosed the motor failure in this washer. Now, I can't the drive belt back on; no grotesque brown staining in the rear (http://fixitnow.com/...on-main-pulley/). What do I do?

Thanks in advance,

either the motor is not in right, or its the wrong motor or the bearings are bad in the tub allowing the big pully to cock to the side

The belt has to be in the exact grooves for allignment, can't be 1 groove off.

Good video! This looks like a bad bearing to me. The stains are just one of the outward signs of an extreme case of worn bearings. But the bearings can also wear in such a way that they throw the belt because the worn bearing throws the pulley off true and that may be the only evidence.

This is one time I'm glad our benevolent overlord was wrong. Removed the motor, reinstalled it with the bushings correctly positioned, and reconnected power supply. Performed a board input test--passed with flying colors! Next, to double check myself, ran a load of queen-sized bed clothes--success!

Run that part about "reinstalled it with the bushings correctly positioned" by me again, budrow-- I musta missed that in your first post.

There are two holes at the right-rear mounting spot; I initially had the bushing in the closest hole. After moving the bushing to the outer hole, the motor mounted up perfectly. Will look for a pic (didn't take any).
