After replacing motor coupler, I have a small black belt laying on the floor,where does it go?
Answer Terry, the foam strip you found on the floor is probably 4 or 5 inches round and can be mistaken for a belt. It is actually a sound deadening device installed on the outside of the clutch bell when the washer is being put together on the production line. It is not necessary, and you really don't have to install it back on the clutch bell. You can discard it if you wish.
First the washers top agitator started banging the top of the lid, than the top agitator stopped agitating. The seal from the barrier cap came off and is now stuck in the bottom, around the gap of top of the bottom agitator.
You will want to pull the agitator out and separate the upper and lower agitator to get the seal out from in between the 2 pieces. The seal part number is W10072840. For the agitator moving up and down it sounds like the bolt that holds the agitator in place may have backed out and allowed the agitator to move up and down on the drive shaft. You will want to get a little lock tite to make sure that the bolt does not back out and make sure that it is in tight. If the agitator is still not moving after replacing then it sounds like you may need new agitator dogs 80040.
My washer fills up and will drain but during agitation and spin it makes a noise like it trying to do something but nothing happens. Any advice?
You will want to check the motor coupling as it sounds like the coupling may have broken and causing the unit to not agitate or spin. Since the pump is attached to the back side of the motor, this is why it will still drain.
I have a maytag centennial washer. It will go thru the wash cycle until it gets to drain and spin. I will not advance from there. We have replaced the shift actuator and the drain hose is not plugged. What is wrong??
Since the unit will not drain or spin you will want to test the lock switch solenoid and make sure that the resistance is between 85-155 ohms. If not then you would need to replace the lock assembly. Also check to make sure that the drain pump is getting power when it goes into the drain and spin and if there is power then the drain motor if not running or if running is either clogged or bad.
