Re: maytag coin-op top load wont spin, motor runs, belt...
The old maytag coin op machines have 2 belts (one goes from the motor to the pump and the other goes from the motor to the Transmission) I have seen this problem caused by a sock or washcloth wedged between the inner basket and the outer tub, a faulty brake assy., or a bad transmission.

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.
Im not an expert, but.Ok, but it wash? The only problem is at spin? if not wash at all: Disconnect from the outlet, remove the belt, and by hand turn the pump and drum. Its suppose to move with low resistance in both directions, will not spin freely, but turn easy by hand. Do the same with motor. IF the drum and pump moves in both directions, I suspect about the motor. If the only problem is at spin: Do the same, but place special attention at the drum when you turn in reverse. Look if you see the brake Disk turn.
1.Check for drum bearing failure if
your washing machine is noisy on the spin cycle. Drum bearing failure is common
when the bearing seals start allowing water to enter. You can take the belt off
and spin the drum by hand, and if the drum rumbles, replace the bearings. 2 Turn the drum by hand and listen for loud noises. If the drum itself
is split or the 'spider' is corroded, broken or has come apart from the back of
the drum it will create a loud noise on every turn of the drum 3. Look for obvious dents and creases in the drum or look for coins or
small objects stuck inside the tub underneath the drum when a horrendous noise
is made while clothes are in the tub. 4. Clear the water pump from obstructions like coins or small objects
when a noise occurs while the washing machine is emptying water. 4. Remove the sump hose and look for bra wires if you hear a light
scraping noise when the drum is turned by hand. You can also check to make sure
a wire isn't poking out of one of the holes in the drum. In this case, you can
pull the wire out easily with pliers. 6. Take the belt off and run the motor alone if you hear a high pitched
squealing noise to check for motor bearing damage or wear. If you still hear
the noise without the belt, it's the motor bearing.
the drum should run free if not the bearing have gone and seized they will need to be replaced. hear is a video there are others you can find the bearing kit on line using the model number https://youtu.be/WGolkFlgl3Y
If it has a belt try loosening the belt and see if the transmission and pump will turn and are not stuck. If they are they will have to be replaced. Try the motor and see if it turns freely with the belt loose or off. If they all turn freely check motor.
when you say the drum wont spin even manually. Do you mean the drum is too stiff to turn by hand? If so the bearings may have seized up solid. If the drum is free to turn by hand, the pump may be blocked, or burned out & not allowing the water out. If so the circiut wont allow the machine to spin. If thats the case, unblock or replace the pump
