Maytag SE1000 leaks at bottom tub seal

22 June 2015 - 07:44 PM




I have a 27 year old Maytag stacker and have replaced $2-300 in parts over the years.  In 2013 I did a major overhaul and replaced the (top part) Mounting Stem/Tub Seal Kit and the (bottom part) Tub Bearing Kit, among other stuff.  It ran fine until 2015 when the useless Rubber Injector Valve went bad.


So I amazoned this valve and the plastic nozzle and installed both.  Worked great until I ran a load - now the lower tub bearing leaks. Crazy thing is that it leaks more when the washer has a full load than when just a partial load.



Before I take it apart, again - anyone have suggestions ??



Much appreciation from a Dad with a daughter going to college in August


who does not want to spend $1500 plus on an new stacker.

Maytag SE 1000 will not agitate

21 January 2013 - 09:17 PM



Important note:

Upper Clamp Nut #13 - Don't spend more than 5 minutes trying to take it off - just cut it off with a cold chisel or grinder or You may damage the upper Tranny post threads if it is stuck on.


Final Answer to my issue:  Agitator shaft was frozen to #12 Gear Case assembly ?post #4 Tranny Diagram


I have a 25 year old SE1000 Maytag Washer + Dryer Stack.

Several parts have been replaced. Current Problem:


** Saturday: The little lady packed the washer with heavy stuff like two sets of flannel sheets, a small quilt type blanket, and other stuff making a very full load

** Washer will not agitate

** It will spin and drain

** With the front off and in the agitate cycle, I can see the pulley move a bit, but no more

** The belts will squeal after a minute or so

** The pulley is relatively easy to turn in the spin "direction"

** But much stiffer in the agitate direction

** I do not think the belts have been replaced in ten or more years


Saturday: I played with it for a an hour or so - back and forth to this website looking for fixit hints

and was able to get a couple of loads done with no issues


Monday: the little lady loaded it up and it will not agitate


Thanks in advance for your help.
