How do I replace the pulley motor from my Maytag washer model

This answer was rated:

How do I replace the pulley motor from my Maytag washer model #LA209 without having to go inside the machine. If you go to the following site you'll see a section called "Clutch, Brake & Belts". http://www.maytag.com/digitalassets/MLPDF/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20LA209.pdf
Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I look forward to helping you! If you tip the machine back against the wall, the motor pulley is exposed under the machine without any disassembly. However, it is easier to remove the front panel or the lower lip will be in the way. Once you have access to the pulley, you will have to remove the belts. Then, you will see an Allen set screw in the pulley groove. Once that set screw is removed, you will be able to pull the pulley free from the motor shaft.

Please let me know if you have additional questions or need clarification. There is no additional charge for any follow up help!

Are you saying I have to go inside the machine and remove the motor?

No, not at all. If you remove the two screws from the bottom of the front panel and take that panel off, you can then lean the machine back and easily get to the motor pulley right from the bottom of the machine.

I did what you said but the motor does not slide off after removing the set screw.

The pulley is what slides off, just the part that the belts go around. They can be difficult to get off, you may need to use a bit of force.

How would you force it off?

You may need a pulley remover or you can use a hammer to tap the pulley. Be careful you don't damage it, though.

Okay, thanks for the help!

You are very welcome!

I want to ask you a new question.

You bet, but you will need to start a new thread and just put "For Kelly only" in the first line.

My Maytag top-load washer #LA209 loads water then stalls making a noise and won't agitate. I gently pull on the pump belt in the direction of the motor and the machine agitates. Then when it gets to the rinse cycle same problem. I have a new pulley motor and new belts. The pump belt seems a bit loose. How can I get the machine to go thru all cycles without stalling?

Your capacitor is faulty and available below.

I'm a little confused. How do I pay you for this answer. I don't want to be on any monthly plan.

All you have to do is rate positive again, it won't sign you up for a plan. Once you rate, I can send the question in so they can double check that you are not, too.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Will they let me set the amount I want to pay for your answer?

Well, you already have that set, but there is an option to add after you rate or you can email them to reduce it.

Where is the capacitor located in the machine?

It is either in the motor area or in the timer console area.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I ordered the part you suggested and it arrived today. The problem is I don't know where it's located. The following link has Maytag LA209 parts listed https://www.maytag.com/digitalassets/MLPDF/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%20LA209S.pdf.


 


In section CBNT, WATER, INJ 7 VALVE, HOSES &FRTP, capacitor, capacitor kit, and clip capacitor are listed but I can't find them in the picture.

Follow the motor wires up to the timer. It has to be in line with them somewhere.
