Continuation of Drum not Spinning

Thanks for your suggestions. The belt was intact and all pullies looked good. I tried a spin cycle with the back off and it did not look like the motor attempted to turn. It moves by hand so there is no seisure issue that I can see. Where is the motor controller and is there an easy way to test it vs. the motor? Thanks

I had a lot of sheets and a couple of towels in the washing machine and it eventually the load just stopped before the spin cycle(dial on sanitary mode) I drained the water and tried to drain and spin and...

Thank you for using FixYa. Does the drum of your machine appear to move freely when turned by hand? If it does with no resistance, I would say that the drive belt has either come off the motor or it has perhaps been placed under a strain with a "heavy" wet load and and snapped. The drive belt can be accessed through the panel on the rear of the machine. If the belt has simply come off, run the belt round the small pully wheel on the motor and then work it onto the large wheel on the back of rhe drum. Turning the large wheel on the back of the drum in a clockwise direction whilst guiding the belt on will make matters easier.
I hope this as helped. If so please place a Most Helpfull vote

Washing Machine, Apliance help.

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 They have parts diagrams for tons of appliances, and stock parts, I have used them many times in the past.

Howdy, I have an old spacesaver washer/dryer and everything works but the spin cycle. The belt burnt a couple days ago because I may have put too much laundry into the machine. Now the clothes come out...

the belt is probably coming of because the bearings in the drum are shot and if thats the case you might as well by a new one cause its so expensive to do a bearing job you can spin the drum around by hand and back and forward to see if its spinning smoothly if it seems ok then get a belt from your local appliance spares place and put it on yourself.

The drum does not turn.

there are two potential problems. firstis te belt to the drum drive pully from th moter. this is the easiest. take off the back panel an seeif the belt is intact. if so run through a cycle and see if the motor spins or triesto spin. if not this is most likely thesuspect. one plug three screws and about100 dollarsfixes te motor. hope this helps.

During the spin cycle basket vibrates very badly - very rough

I had a similar problem. During the final high spin and there was POW and the drum went funky eating into the plastic. I opened the back of the washer and look things over,.The belt for spinning was intact. I set the washer on a drain/spin option and watched from the front and back. While watching the pulley on the drum and could tell there was a hiccup as it went around. I pulled the pulley off and put on a new pulley. The new pulley was going in a perfect circle to spin the drum. It's not a hard repair, just need a little muscle to loosen the nut holding the pulley on and the same muscle to tighten the nut as much as possible. Hope this helps.

Magic chef cav2000aww no spin. Is there a clutch ajustment from under the machine on pully,

I would request you to please do the following steps to verify why it’s not spinning.
If when the spin cycle is turned on and there is a humming sound but there is no movement the belt is the problem.
Sounds like you have a broken belt or a bad motor. The easiest way to tell if the belt is bad is to reach inside the drum and turn it. If it turns very easily, you probably have a bad belt or something has caused the belt to jump off, such as a loose pulley or bad bearing. If it feels like there is a good amount of resistance, or a kind of "winding up" noise, then the belt is still on and you likely have a bad motor. Also, you could just scoot the machine out, unplug it, and remove the back cover a look inside to see if the belt is still on the pulleys

Thank You for using

My WBXR1060TAWW GE washer is eating thru belts....I replaced one about 2 weeks ago and the new one is fraying badly. It looks like it's rubbing metal when going through the spin cycle... It all started...

tensioner pully could have bad bearing when ran gets hot and tries to lock up causing premature belt wear. spin all pullys with belt ff any hard to turn or so loose they might fall apart

Maytag washing machine repair

The water pump may be going bad...Yes it probably is a bearing. Take the belt loose and try turning each pully until you find one that makes noise or is hard to turn. Pump and motor should both spin very easily with out noise.
