Whirlpool Vertical Modular Washer No Spin or Agitate

As I mentioned in my last post, I brought home a Maytag Centennial washing machine (made by Whirlpool).  The washer didn’t spin or agitate.  The first thing that I did was remove the baffling from under the washer.  You could see a black spot from where there was some obvious belt friction going on.  See pic.

(In order to work on the underside of these machines, it’s best to either tilt them back up against the wall or lay them on the front side with something under it like a towel so that it doesn’t scratch the front panel up. )

As I inspected a little more and as you can see in the picture below, the belt was all wacked out.

It’s a very common problem with these vertical modular washers for the nut that holds the pulley into place to fall off.  The nut fell off, causing the belt to slip off of the pulley.  This was causing the washer not to not be able to spin or agitate.  I replaced the belt by removing the two screws that hold the plastic cover into place, removed the old belt, and then put the new belt on.  (You can see in the plastic cover also got damaged.  It would be a good idea to replace that also.)  In order for the nut to not fall of the pulley again, I used Locktite

Luckily, I found the nut inside the machine.

Pulley off

This washer is probably about 2 – 3 years old.  I picked it up for $65 and have about $20 worth of parts in it.  I could make a nice little profit off of this washer if I were to sell it.  But as we have been running test loads, my wife is starting to like it due to all the extra laundry it holds.  We were using a direct drive Whirlpool washer, that is much more reliable than this new machine.  Who knows, we may keep it.  The upside of being in this type of business is that my wife will never go with out a washer, dryer, or any other appliance, at least for not too long.

Update: We used the washer for about a month,  towels that have lasted 10+ years were torn to shreds and our clothes didn’t come out as clean as they should.  We went back to the Whirlpool Direct Drive washer.

(On a side note, I paid more for this washer than what I would like to pay, but since I haven’t had the chance to experiment with the new vertical modular washers, it was worth price.)
