IF its not your drive coupler (between motor and tranny) You could have something in your pump or a bad motor.

Maytag legacy series washer

The drive motor which spins the drum is connected to the drum by a rubber belt. Sounds like the belt is burned through. Make sure you can spin the inside tub by hand to verify that the tub can turn freely before you replace the belt. The hum is from the drive motor just spinning freely.

Remove the front panel, then look at the motor to see what codes the motor is flashing. There should be a green light on the motor that will be flashing. Post back your findings.

Motor just hums during spin cycle

This sounds like the drive belt may have snapped off. It's usually located on the bottom of the washer. If you're able, tilt the washer on its side and recover the broken belt. It usually connects from the drive motor to the tensioner, then to the transmission. Take the belt to your local appliance parts store so they can match it up with a replacement. You may want to copy down the actual model and serial numbers down so the parts counter can provide a more accurate and exact replacement. Please let me know if you need any further help with this.

I hope this helps! :)

what's the brand name and model number,all washers are different,most likely it's the motor humming or the pump is humming,could have something stuck in pump,if the water doesn't drain the washer won't spin,if you have a shop vac pull the drain hose out of stand pipe or sink,stick the shop vac hose onto the drain hose,get it down as low as you can and suck out the water and then see if it spins,if there's alot of water in the tub suck it out of the tub first then go to the drain hose,if it spins when water is out you know it's the pump but if you say water is still in tub i would have to say it is the pump,

Motor is humming loudly.

Motors hum, and your right, it could be no worse than normal.

I would be suspect that there is a gear stripped in the gearcase, since this is a direct drive washing machine.

Reassemble the motor back onto the washer. Run it through a cycle manually (rotate the timer by hand) until the motor turns, then look to see if it's turning. If it is, or even more so, if it pumps water out of the tub, then it is probably the stripped out gearcase.

Reply with you findings and more advice.

Washing machine will not go thru it's spin cycle.

I just replaced the 4 rubber straps on the tub. Washed a load and it worked fine. Washed a second load and it did not spin on the rinse cycle. Checked the wiring on the switches. All OK. What do I check next. Did I mess up something around the tub ?

Whirlpool Washer LSR7233BQ2 Buzzes/Humms during spin movement

No belt on your machine. Sounds like motor coupler that joins motor and transmission is broken. Very inexpensive part but a few steps involved in getting machine disassembled Look up YouTube video on replacing motor coupler on Whirlpool washer.

Kenmore 23012, spin cycle problem

This sounds like a broken coupler gear. I'm having the same problem with my Kenmore-80 Series. The machine fill up, pump out, but when I try to spin I get nothing and the I can hear the motor humming/grinding. I've heard the coupler gear is not expensive $35 or so and the repair procedure is not difficult, but I can't locate how to fix it. If you find any additional information, please send my way. I don't want to pay $150 or so to have it serviced.
