Maytag washer motor pulley broken. How do I fix?
Model Number: HAV2557AWW Brand:
1 - 5 years
I replaced the drive belt today, since the old one seemed stretched. It was having trouble spinning the water out of a cycle, and a lot of belt dust had accumulated under the machine.
I ran the machine with the new belt, and everything seemed fine. Then, the machine wouldn't spin to drain the water again. After looking at the machine, I found that the top part of the pulley had broken off of the motor and the belt slid off, finding itself caught beneath the pulley, spinning and carving rubber from the belt.
I've taken the washer apart, and have the motor in my hands. The problem seems to be the pulley, which has broken off, but has not been removed completely from the center spindle. Can anyone tell me how to get the pulley off of the center spindle? (and how to put a new one on). A new pulley and a new belt should do the trick (thank goodness I bought the lifetime belt warranty!)
