a washer. I will walk you through the same steps I take in repairing washers
professionally. With a little help from this guide, your washer will be repaired
in no time. The procedures for clothes washer repair vary greatly depending on
the manufacturer. So the first thing you must know is the manufacturer of your

In this clothes washer repair guide, I walk you through repairing two main styles of
Maytag washers, the Newton and the Herrin. These were the two main styles of
Maytag washers until 2006, when Whirlpool bought out Maytag. The easiest way to
tell if you have a Newton or a Herrin is to tilt the washer over and look
underneath. If there are two belts you have a Newton and if there is only one
belt you have a Herrin. If you don’t see a belt you have some other type of

This section of the clothes washer repair guide has links to pages about frontload washers. Frontload washers are overall great machines and I would recommend them to anyone who doesn’t mind paying the extra bucks to buy one.
However, no matter
how well any machine is built sooner or later it will break. Front loading
washers have gained popularity in the last few years due to their efficiently
and sleek look so I have created pages dedicated to helping you repair frontload
The most popular brand front-loading washers today are the GE front loader washer, the Whirlpool duet front loading washer, and most Kenmore front loaders. These machines are built basically the same mechanically but vary greatly electrically. So anything you read in these pages about mechanical parts will apply to most frontload washers with some variances and exceptions of course.
