In Topic: Maytag SE 1000 will not agitate

23 June 2013 - 05:24 PM

Hi Guys - 
Almost five months later  - my Maytag is running strong  - many thanks to all for your help.  
For a couple hundred in parts, I was saved from spending about $ 1,500 on a new stacker.
I should have bought a new "Upper Outer Tub Cover Clamp" ... it leaked a little water for about a month
but the old clamp finally "seated" itself.
One last issue:
I had to take the tranny apart to fix the agitator shaft and bought new tranny oil.
After reassembling the whole deal -
 a very small amount of oil seeps out of the tranny gasket (bought a new one)during the spin cycle
and spins out to the frame walls of the washer - and onto the rubber hoses (original hoses) on the right side of the machine:
#1 How do you know how tight to tighten the bolts that hold the tranny together ?
#2 Will the oil rot the rubber hoses ? Again, this is a 25 year old machine
Thanks again to all - 
Still Trying (to save a buck)

Is appliance paint waterproof ?

i.e. won't the outer tub be full of water during the wash cycle ?

Hi Guys,


My handyman neighbor has suggested slow drying two part epoxy paint for the tub rust issue.

I would think I would need to paint it first with rust ?oxidizer paint first to seal the rust


Comments appreciated

Hi Guys,


Thanks much - Willie !


First order of business.

I am thinking I need to sand the rust in the outer tub

and paint some kind of waterproof rust sealer paint

to prevent further rust damage.


Comments and suggestions on the type of paint to use

will be much appreciated.


You guys are GREAT !
