SOURCE: Washer fills and spins but does not agitate

Im sorry to say, it sounds like the transmission in the washer may have gone out, the unit it self sits at the bottem of the main agitator shaft under the the tub, you may be able to have this replaced, but shop around for the right price.

SOURCE: Installing damper pads on a Maytag a710 washer

by damper pads you mean three curved felt pads that come in one package.if yes yes i can tell you but it wont be the funnest thing you ever did .on a service call i would complete this job in about one hour,but you have more time than i. had to move on to the next call and did not want to return[to let glue dry enough and then reassemiable]here goes older maytag two belts under neath! 1 remove front panel and screws from top, so can hinge back. 2 there are three or four big springs that go from tub to floor.next,you need to mark the spot that the nuts are tightened too on those eye bolts that springs are attached too. take black tape and wrap around treads above the nut on the eye bolts so will know where to re tighten too. 3 loosen and undo hose at tub that goes to pump and at top of washer tub where water comes in .4 then under neath the washer remove those nuts that you applied black tape to the eye bolts i thinks 7/16 or 3/8[will have to spin belts off also]now tub should move freely.5 here's the trick,i use a 4'' round pvc coupler on its end and place under neath the washer,center trainee pulley and pull the washer up onto it , this then lifts the whole tub assemblie up so now can get to snubber pads.6 peal off old pads and clean ,glue in new pads and let set for long time[hours],[i did not have that time on service calls so when droped tub back down,some time pads moved]7 when dry add your silicone grease that came with pads.8 put unit back together.now if tub to loose you can tighten those nuts on the eye bolts more,but don't too much because tub dose need to move so the energy when tub out of balance can be transferred to springs and not all the way thru to the bottom deck,which would happen if springs to tight.i hope this helps God bless ,tom.....ps the glue l used for pads was the same glue i use for dryer felt seals.that glue came with the felt seals so i always had it around[free] im not sure which glue to advise you to use,but needs to be good stuff,tom.........also if i have been helpfil please remember to help me with my ratings

What is the capacity (Size) of the Speed Queen Marathon Washer?


Pi,r,squared times height. Remember math back when we didn't have computers? So that's 3.14 x radius(half the distance across drum)squared(times itself) times height or depth of drum. Remember to do radius times itself first, then Pi, then height.

Are you happy with the Kenmore 800 4.0 cu.ft. top load washer?


For large capacity, a front loader would be your best bet. An HE2 by Kenmore should be sufficient. If a toploader is overloaded, it's more likely to do damage. Also a Whirlpool Duet would work. Whirlpool makes Kenmore, so shop for the best price, (they are the same inside)

Hello: I have a Maytag, do not know model # as I inherited the 5 year old model when I purchased a condo and it is now 7 years old. The front of it states Maytag - Dependable Use, Heavy Dtuty - Large...


I ALWAYS START WITH VENTING WHEN CALLED WITH LONG DRYING TIMES BUT I HAVE SEEN WHERE ONLY HALF OF THE HEATING ELEMENT IS WORKING, WHICH IS PRETTY RARE. A NORMAL LOAD WOULD BE WHATEVER THE WASHER HAD IN IT WHICH WOULD BE LOOSLY FILLED TO THE TOP ROW OF HOLES IN THE WASHER TUB. THE ONLY OTHER QUESTION I WOULD ASK IS IF THE WASHER SEEMS TO BE SPINNING OUT PROPERLY AND IF THE CLOTHES ARE GOING INTO THE DRYER TOO WET.

Jammed agitator


Some further checking indicated a bad transmission. As the unit is 15 years old, I decided the best solution was a new machine! ..

28+ year old- Speed Queen Heavy Duty top loader


It sound like you drain hose is siphoning off the rinse water, It needs a standpipe make sure the drain hose is at about the height of the top of the washer, Make sure the drain hose isnt stuck in the drain it also needs an air cap. the drain hose should not lay on the floor to run to the drain

Please let me know if this doesnt solve your problems
