can everyone else see it?

I know what is wrong

The video settings have been changed from public to private
unless u have a friend invite it is locked and friends are the only ones that can see it

Go to my maytag dryer video the long one I set it to private
it is now locked out

Yup - can't see your maytag dryer video either. Oh well.

the link should work now as I set it to public again

Post# 233087 , Reply# 11   8/27/2007 at 00:31 (4,290 days old) by goprog ()        

Yes, the link works again.

So if the owner changed it to private, how does he expect to
get help analyzing the problem? (Rhetorical question.)

Obviously something is not engaging in the machine...a brake or a clutch, something... I always though Speed Queens agitated appr. 180 degree strokes, but this one looks as if it does fewer strokes but several revolutions per stroke! Is it supposed to agitate like that or is that part of the problem too?

you need to change the 3 brake pads

Are you guys sure that's not a new transmission? I can see the brake pads, but the agitation in a single direction with rotating wash basket I think may need a new transmission.

Looks like Brake Pads are needed badly!

That tub should not spin while washing. As the reply on YouTube stated "you'll wreck the transmission running it like that"! A long time ago we had a McGraw-Edison SQ and just for kicks (I was bored one day) I started the washer on a spin as our brake pads were well worn and it would coast to a stop. I went ahead and advanced the timer to the wash cycle and started the agitation - the same thing happened as in this video. The agitator would still go back and forth, but with the tub spinning it looked like it was fighting against the direction it was spinning. I know, it was a stupid move on my part! We finally got rid of that washer as it was old anyway and traded it for the HA7001L.

I have done this repair!!

My close friend has an AmanaTag of this design that had the same problem... This is what is happening.. There are 3 pads mounted to the baseplate of the machine. These are used for the brake after spin and to hold the tub in place while agitating.. What happened in his case is that he overloaded it so much that one of each of the two sets of screws holding the pads stripped..To do this repair you need a lot of patience and dexterity.. a new set of pads and screws is around $20 from a repair shop.. First off, unscrew and remove the bottom panel. after that is done, locate all of the screws holding the cabinet to the base and remove them.. once you have the cabinet at least partially removed, locate the fill flume and remove the hose attached at the back, next, remove the pressure dome on the left side of the tub. once all that is done and you have the cabinet off, you need to remove both hoses from the pump in order to be able to get to the right side brake pad...locate all of the screws and remove all three of the old brake pads.. Then just put the new ones on, screw them in tight and put the washer back together.. I do remember telling my friend that this was a one time repair.. If it happened again that I wasn't going to repair it again and that he should go buy a new set.. This wasn't a fun repair LOL.. Good luck with whatever you choose to do...
