Product Description

Over time, the belts in your washer can either stretch out and sag, or become brittle and snap. When this happens, it can result in the belt losing its grip and will not be able to spin or drain the tub. If this happens, the belts will need to be replaced. This OEM belt kit includes the drive belt and the pump belt, which are both V-shaped, and made of black rubber. The pump belt is located between the motor and pump under the washer, and the drive belt is looped around the drive and motor pulley at the bottom of the machine. This repair is easiest to complete if the washer is placed on its back, and you will need to disconnect the power and water supply.

    Does the 2 belt combo recommended for Maytag washer also work on a Kenmore 500 washer
    For model number Kenmore 500 washer
    Hello Andrew, Thank you for your inquiry. It would depend on the manufacturer who made the parts for Kenmore. Since the number you have provided is only a series number and does not show who the manufacturer of the parts is, we would need the Kenmore model number, which should consist of 3 numbers followed by a period, then up to 8 more characters, usually numbers. Once you have located the model number please feel free to resubmit the question and we will be happy to help you. We are looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks for your recent request for the Model number (provided above) of my Kenmore 500 washer. I am requesting if the 2 belt kit you advertise as replacement for a Whirlpool washer, will work on my Kenmore washer
    For model number 11029522800
    Hello Andrew, thank you for the question. This model is a direct drive model and does not require a Belt. This model requires the Direct Drive Motor Coupling.

      Washer motor was actuating but machine whined and emiitted smell of burning rubber. Agitator did not turn.
      Disconnect washer from power, water inlet, and drain. Move machine out from installed position. Tilt machine against wall, back panel to wall. Remove belts, inspect the pump and agitator belts for excessive wear, burnishing, cracking. Remove front panel. Advance the water pump manually to confirm it is not stuck or clogged. Advance transmission (large counter weighted object on spindle immediately below tub) shaft to confirm freedom of movement. If it doesn't move, you should consider a new machine. Transmission repair is above DIYer level and too costly on older machine. If transmission shaft turns by hand, replace belts if necessary, and confirm tension to manufactures recommendation by adjusting position of the water pump. Reposition machine and attach water inlet, outlet, and power. Activate machine and confirm operation.

      My washer was making a squeaky noise and vibrating on the rinse cycle.
      I unplugged the washer then took the front cover off and took the screws holding the lid out. Then i leaned the washer back against the wall and unscrewed the nuts holding the 3 tub hold down springs. These look like 2 seperate nuts, 1 on top and 1 under the washer bottom but it is 1 long body nut so just put the socket on the bottom and back it all the way off. Then Take the drive and pump belts off and put blocking down under the tub pulley and pull the washer back down so the tub is resting on the Blocking, this will raise it up enough to clean the cone hub where the damper pads go. I used a mirror propped up inside the back of the washer to see the back side of the damper area to clean and install the new pads.The kit does not come with the glue needed to put the pads back on so don't forget to order it with the parts. Also the glue does not give a full cure time so i gave it 24 hours to be sure it was set. then i started putting everything back together. The tub springs gave me the most trouble. I was able to get 1 on easy but the other 2 i had to use a clamp on the support to the spring and use a pry bar to hold the spring down far enough to start the nut back on. But after that it all went easy and quick.This site does a great job with all the helpful instructions, pictures and videos.

      worn belts caused by clogged water pump
      A small sock bypassed the washer tub and ended up in the water pump causing the belt to wear...1) I removed the front panel of the washer by pulling the unit forward out of its cradle enough to tilt it back 2) prop up the front of washer 3) remove two screws from the bottom of the front panel and it will fall into your hand…set aside 4) remove sock by undoing the exhaust hose clamp and pulling it apart from the pump…use needle nose pliers to pull sock out then reconnect exhaust hose 5) Next look under washer unit and see two drive belts…remove both by slipping off…relatively easy since the drive motor is on a spring loaded pivot 6) Install new belts 7) install front panel in reverse order 6) lower washer and slip back into stack cradle

      Motor position seemed out of place
      I was very pleased to find FIX.com! Not only did it bring up the parts diagrams for my washer after I entered the model number in the search field, it listed all the parts below the diagram, matching the numbers on the diagram to the appropriate part. This made location of the parts I was looking for extremely easy.
      My Maytag washer is 24 years old, and still looks great. Not relishing the idea of the technology driven appliances today, I just wanted to repair my Maytag.
      I followed the installation videos provided on the FIX.com website and they were spot-on, making removal and replacement of the motor, belts and drain pump very easy. I will say that after I initially installed the new washer motor, it seemed to hang over the front edge, too far forward, and I was afraid it would interfere with the washer front panel. I actually took the motor out again and rechecked it's attachment to the spring loaded base plate, thinking I had re-installed it incorrectly. However, it seemed to be the only orientation possible, so I re-assembled it and re-installed it in the washer frame. What I discovered was that once the belts were added to the motor pulley, it pulled the motor into the correct position inside the washer frame, so my worries were for nothing. Just follow the video and everything will work out as expected, for an easy repair!
      I decided that as long as I was replacing the washer motor, I would also replace the belts and drain pump, essentially refurbishing my trusty Maytag. Now back together and a few loads run, my Maytag is running like new and I am extremely happy! Add if this isn't enough encouragement, I am a 57 year old woman who did my own washer repair, so don't hesitate to do yourself, with the help of FIX.com!

      Hot rubber smell and squealing noise, at one point the washer wouldn't agitate
      After finally sending for the belts (I had reached under and pulled the belts a couple of times in the past after reading through your diagnostics) I took off the front panel of my 25 year old Maytag , pulled it out from the wall, tilted it back, propping the front on some stacked lengths of 2x4s to hold it in place. I placed a small flashlight under to illuminate the situation. Even after reading through your customer submitted instructions telling me how easy it was, I was shocked at how easy it was. The screwdriver was only for taking off the front panel. The belt replacement only took 2 minutes or less. Very obvious once one could see the underside of the machine. In the past, I had a repair done on this machine- the water shutoff valve needed to be replaced and it cost me $300 (had belts replaced at same time-now I see I could have done it all myself!!!!!). I only paid $600 for the machine in 1991. I have questioned every repair man I have had in the house-for new appliances, of course- about their recommendations for new washing machines and they have all told me "hold on to that machine for as long as you can". This Machine has chugged through a family of 5 since 1991, and thanks to this site I hope to keep it going for years to come.

      Noise
      Slide the washer about two feet from the wall and tilt it back so that the back is resting against the wall. Creating about a foot of clearance in the front. It may be wise to position a support under the front of the washer to prevent it from falling. Push the spring loaded pulley towards the center of the washer and remove the belts. Install the new belts in the same manner. The thinner pump belt has a somewhat loose fit after installation. I used a dry rag to clean the pulleys before installation. Unfortunatly, the new belts did not stop the noise but I'm glad to have new belts on it.

      Thumping noise when in spin mode
      I viewed the video on the web site first!! Best thing the site did! I unscrewed the two screws from the bottom of both sides of the front panel, I puled the front panel out at an angle as the web video said to remove the front panel. I unplugged the electrical cord from the wall socket, I recommend you turn off the hot and cold water connections and remove hoses from the valve side of the connections if needed to help wit tilting the washer. I tilted my washer until it rested on the rear wall of my laundry nook as there is no place big enough to conduct this repair. I grabbed first belt on the two belt pulley at the drain pump end. pulling it to the side to dislodge belt from the pulley while turning the motor pulley. Then repeat this step for the washer drum belt. Note that the washer drum belt is a deep v-belt and the drain pump belt is smaller< as the belts ARE NOT MARKED for which area they go on. to reinstall the belts place large v-belt onto top pulley of motor, place as much belt onto washer drum pulley and keep tension on it as you turn motor pulley to get the belt into the groove. Next comes the drain pump belt Small of the two same procedure, place on motor pulley first and try and pace as much of belt on pump pulley while turning the motor pulley to seat the belt. Once belts are in place check belt tension, On my motor I pulled the motor from the right side to the front of the washer and belts tightened up a bit. With no manual I am not sure if this is suppose to be this way but there does not seem to be a bolt adjustment needed. replaced front panel, reversed from removal, Panel top at an angle making sure metal clips at top are inside the front lip of washer top and push tension and then hold panel tight to top as you swing panel to front of washer and then placing screws back in place and tighten. Easy as pie. 1 Note though , if you have another person available have them hold the washer for you for safety reasons, with washer tilted and nothing holding it up beside it laying on the wall, it may fall on you if underneath it or the back side may slide away from the wall and the washer fall.

      1980 Maytag tub/basket wobble on spin, tub off center when stopped
      After removing the front panel I found one damper pad was hanging half out. After lifting the tub with a piece of 4x4 PVC found a second pad totally gone. Suggestions: use the 4x4 lift method works fine if you position the washer so you can remove the rear round access panels and work behind the washer to clean/install the rear pad. A short piece (6" roughly) of 2x4 or similar works good to "prop" the whole tub forward to re-attach the front spring last. Replacing pads and belt didn't cure the tub/basket wobble but then tuning-adjusting the springs tensions nuts individually with (and without) a load in the tub on spin did re-center the tub and equalized-reduced somewhat (40%?) the amount of tub-basket spin balance wobble. Yes the washer is leveled very carefully in both axis. Replaced the original motor tension springs and (worn!) drive belt to hopefully extend the life. DEFINITELY worth the effort to keep my wife happy!!!!

      Phantom leak
      2 Maytags, A712, 33-years-old. Deteriorated siphon break flapper. Two days to find, 30 minutes to swap, after watching repair video. Replaced belts as preventive maintenance. Machine two, also replaced belts as preventive maintenance. Think I will replace siphon break on second machine, as preventive maintenance. Easy. Also, hex screws on pump adjustment stripped from factory. Had to use needle nosed vise grips to make belt adjustment. Set machine on two pieces of scrap decking, with piece of 1-1/2" pipe perpendicular as roller. Lift with pry bar and 2"X4". Dick
