Well, what better way to start the year...


At least with a Maytag, broke, and I'll fix, and use for a while.


Just picked up, notified party early in week I would take, but they waited until the last minute today to make first contact...come get.


A pic or two still on the truck.

Problem/Symptom>>no agitate, spin only.

They replaced belt/pulley at a cost to them of 63 bucks...said it was broke.


Mode shifter as in pic>>2nd pic looking thru glass, laying on side.


Hope you Enjoy,



Post Script: I thought I would fix one, and use for a while,...see how she does over the long term...Oh, 4 year old machine.

I recently got a broken down VMW cabrio and got it going-a bad capacitor on control board was cause-machine would just buzz and turn off ,displaying a trouble code...on my cabrio,early 2010 MFG,pump is vertical axis-looks like might be horizontal on your slightly later machine.Not real sure of wash effectiveness with factory water levels yet(actually fills quite high for "bulky"loads)but it does spin really nice-seems to balance well and gets up to speed fast.Washed a few loads in the cabrio,then rotated it out of lineup in favor of a 1982 speed queen-that washer now fully tested so might rotate the cabrio back into service for further play :)
