Maytag Herrin Platform Performa washer MAV408DAWW Service Manual

5 posts in this topic

I know I should know this stuff like the back of my hand, but could somebody please send me the service manual for these machines.  I'm rebuilding one for an elderly customer who already went shopping for a new washer and we both hate all the new washers.

 

Thanks in advance!

The manual is in the Downloads section.  If you had searched, you would have had it yesterday and wouldn't have needed to even post and wait.

Thanks.  What I forgot was how to disassemble and reinstall the brake assembly.  I had originally had instructions with the brake tool, but lost them.

 

Yesterday I went and replaced the brake assembly and the snubber because she complained that the washer walks across the floor. I had problems getting the suspension springs back on without the plastic spring tool.  I also had problems getting the brake assembly to go back together. 

 

She is still complaining about the machine going off balance and walking, and since I don't think the machine is worth  replacing the base and the suspension springs, I guess I am going to pick out a new washer for her. I am leaning to a Whirlpool VMW washer. I think the machine will oulast her because she's almost 90 years old.
