Tip & How-To about Washing Machines
Washer works great during the wash and rinse cycle,the agitator works fine for those but the drum will not spin on the spin cycle. A couple of things go on when the washer goes from wash to spin, the motor pivots, tightens the belt and the drum spins up to speed. I had the same problem on my Maytag, I replaced the belt and the pullys and it has been washing and spinning great ever since, The belts can be accessed by removing the front panel, or disconnecting the machine and laying it down, if you see a lot of fine black dust,(rubber), the belt is probably worn out, change the pullys also at this time, it is cheap insurance that everything will go well. make sure that the motor pivots smoothly, if it does not, correct this issue first and run it. That may solve your problem, A great website that i use for parts and info is www.repairclinic.com. They have parts diagrams for tons of appliances, and stock parts, I have used them many times in the past.
