PAV3240AWW Maytag washer
« on: April 10, 2012, 01:11:50 PM »
Is there a video on how to repair the brake assembly on this Maytag washer?  Not just remove but actually get into the guts of this thing to replace the parts.


Thanks

Is there a special tool to remove the plate where the spring sit inside of?  Or can I just remove all 6 screws and it won't fly off?  I've never done one of these so I'm curious.

I have the tool. After removing the main pulley you slide this dude up on the shaft and it has a nice carter pin that shoves into a couple holes in the tool. The carter pin goes into a grove cut into the transmission shaft. The tool features a threaded shaft  and a nut along with a few washers. After securing the rig to the shaft, you tighten the nut, and that causes  the spring to get compressed inside the brake package. You know you are far enough when the whole shebang turns freely. You then remove the screws and back slowly off the shaft till the bottom plate and the spring comes off.

The brake tool, 12002012, is NLA.  If you remove the screws you may die or lose a limb.  I've heard of people replacing the screws, one at a time, with longer screws.  Then backing them out a little at a time until the spring tension is released.  You can borrow my brake tool, but I will need a $300 deposit and you pay shipping both ways. :)

Thanks but I don't think the customer wants it done.  Will probably end up replacing the whole unit.

You can make a tool. All you need is a little 1 inch all thread about a foot long. A piece of thread pipe 3 inchs long with 2 holes drilled in it, a few washers, a nut, and a u-bolt.

when talking to the maytag techline one time he said just use two bolts with washers. I did that several times without any problems.  of course there could have been but when I bought the tool it was defective and was more dangerous than the two screws ???

I have taken a claw tool and a pair of vice grips to it. Compress the brake with the claw tool and lock down the shaft with the vice grips
