I pulled the motor off my washer & the motor spring fell off. I didn't notice where it came from. Could you tell me where it goes on the motor?
Answer Hello Donald,
The motor spring goes on the wide part of the motor base. There is a hole there that it slides into and then connects to the side of the motor.
My washer will spin on a low speed but when it comes time for it to really spin fast it wont but it acts like it wants to. I looked under the washer and messed with the belt and their is alot of slack in the belt it moves around when I pull on it. And does it have a motor spring if so how do you check it?
Answer Hello Aaron. It is normal for the motor to move and the belt to be loose. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the thrust bearing 12002213 is bad and will need to be replaced. Turn the large pulley by hand and make sure the mark on the pull and cam, when reached, releases the brake. if not, replace the kit 12002213.
Good morning, I have a washing machine Maytag PAV5000AWW that I have been using for ten years with no maintenance, but now the water doesn't drain out after finishing the wash cycle. Please, what seems to be the problem. Thanks.
Answer Hello Ghanem,
You should tilt the machine up and remove the belt, (it's spring loaded so no tools will be necessary...only gloves so the black from the belt wear doesn't get on you). Manually turn the pump pulley which will be the small silver pulley in the right rear corner. If it makes noise, won't turn, or opposes rotation, the pump 35-6780 will require replacement. If it seems okay, you probably have an article of clothing, (childs' underwear, sock, etc...), in the drain line before the pump or in the outer tub where the drain pump to tub hose connects to the tub.
