Maytag fabric matic washer started walking across floor on spin cycle?


Usually an unbalanced load, but check if rubber feet are worn through.

Producing debris when in spin cycle


2.13.1 Scrud
If fabric softener is used regularly it will eventually cause a build up within the outer bowl. This can
result in black flakes present in the wash load that can stain garments. To remove scrud follow the
procedure below.
Step1: Add a full cup of a good quality dishwashing powder such as Active or a similar product
into the machine.
Step 2: Set the machine to a Heavy Duty cycle, select a Hot Wash temperature, High Water level
and allow the machine to agitate for 10 minutes.
Step 3: Leaving the lid closed, turn the machine off and allow to soak overnight.
Step 4: The following day, turn the machine on and advance to the spin cycle to drain the water
from the machine. After the water has drained, turn the machine off then back on again, and select
a Heavy Duty cycle, Hot wash, High Water level, and allow the machine to complete a full cycle to
ensure that all of the loose scrud and residual detergent has been flushed away.
Note: If there is an extremely heavy build up the bowl will have to be removed for pressure washing

Maytag Performa, Noisey spin cycle, now does not work


the belt may be old and stretched/slipping...if it is stretched and slipping it will cause the squealing .............otherwise, check the pulley for the belt/motor to see if it is okay and the motor itself copuld be worn out if the belt looks ok............be careful, you can get zapped if you touch a wire and also if the motor is burned up it can cause a fire so watch carefully and you should be able to see which of these possibilities are the problem..............

I have a Maytag washer that fills, washes, rinses but does not spin. The dial moves around but when it comes to the spin cycle it clicks but nothing happens. It started with just the heavy-duty cycle. Now...


Make sure nothing is caught between the inner and outer tank.

Another possibility is the Lid Switch. Check the switch for continuity. If it is found to be open, replace the switch assembly. Here is a diagram of switch.

Check belt. If it's worn, replace it. Here is a diagram of worn/defective belts.

Another possibility is the Lid Switch. Check the switch for continuity. If it is found to be open, replace the switch assembly.

Sometimes the center bearing can get worn and bind on the transmission, this can, and will stop the washer from spinning and may also burn the belt. Try to turn the belt by hand, if it is super stiff it may be the center bearing has seized.

I hope this will be helpful to you.
