My Maytag washer is making a terrible sound when it is agitating.  I am hoping it is a drive belt but I need a service repair manual so I know how to properly disassemble it.   My Model # LA3910

Can anyone help me?

Thanks,

Ed Martin

Hi,

What you have there is a old style maytag dependable care washer.

Hi,

  Thanks for your help.  I am a little confused though because I downloaded the manual and it doesn't list my model number.  Will it work on mine?

Thanks.

You have the same type of washer as shown in the manual.

To get into your washer you will need to remove the front panel.

There are two Philips screw towards the bottom. You may need to get down on the floor to see them if they are under the little edge.

Also to replace the belts you can just tip the washer back and get to them from the bottom.
Roll the old ones off and the new ones on.

Enter your model number in the search box on the right side, "Parts, Diagrams and Schematics to see diagrams for your specific model.

Thanks for your help.  Now all I have to do is decided if it is worth trying to troubleshoot and it and spend money on it since it is so old.  Any suggestions?  If you suggest replacing it, what brand and model would you suggest?  I am not looking for anything real fancy.  We only use the cold cycle so lots of different temperatures aren't that important either.

Again, thanks for your help.
