Maytag, Sears and Appliance Parts Pros all have Maytag washer parts diagrams available at no cost. They also have additional part installation guides and repair tips. If the model number is not known, Sears has a model search on its website to ensure location of the correct parts diagram.
ApplianceRepair.net has online step-by-step instructions for diagnosing bad or broken parts and replacing them. Disconnect the electricity, by unplugging the machine or tripping the breaker, before replacing any parts. Many washing machine parts are accessed underneath of the unit. If the unit is tilted back or lifted up always block up the unit for safety and never work under it alone.
