Here's an FYI on top of your FYI 

The 10 year Maytag warranty is for the motor only, not the kit. It does not cover the blown motor control board, technically. Getting a third party, like A&E Service for example, only increases the likelihood of further charges. The kit comes with easy to understand instructions that any mechanically inclined person should be able to follow.

John, if you have not replaced the belt before, do that as well, p/n 12001788  to avoid problems later.



Part # 12001788 Kit, Belt & Isolator, AP4009041

Thanks. I've been playing with these "household toys" for a while. I just haven't done any front loaders. I'm a master electrician and work on motor controllers, turbines and power plants. A lot of background and tired of "new" toys breaking down.

Another FYI, On your FYI, Towards my FYI!  :2funny:   Call around local appliance dealers, if it is in warranty, ask them how much their service call is and labor, or how much it would cost to change out the part.  There is a good chance it is still cheaper then buying the parts.  The repair by most any tech should only take 20 - 25 minutes if not in a cramped room.  Saving 20-40 bucks is still saving 20-40 bucks.

The conversion kit may only be covered if the board can be proved to have taken out the motor.
