    Sorry, I accidently posted this without writing the rest. I noticed someone else had this same problem and followed the instructions posted on how to open/check for socks or other clothing. I've done this and was unable to find anything between the drums or in either of the two hoses. I'm stuck now and not sure where to go from here. Is there something else that could be causing this problem? The water is able to run but the cycle stops when it gets to Rinse/Spin.

    Thanks!

    No, the washer doesn't agitate and doesn't drain.

    Thanks for the reply. I was finally able to purchase a lid switch but now I'm unable to figure out how to remove/replace the old one.

Hello, the most common problem was clothing objects getting stuck between the inner tub and the top tub cover, run your fingers between the two and see if you feel any stuck clothing (socks) for example. Good luck

    Hello, I need to know does the washer agitate and does the washer drain. A faulty lid switch is a possibity .

Maytag Nuptune washer in spin cycle sounds like a plane taking off


Something small, like a paperclip or the wire from an underwire bra can get stuck in the holes in the drum, and rub against the outer drum. You will have to check carefully to find it.

Grinding while tub is turning


There is probably something stuck in the drom or the drum seal. I would check for the underwire from a bra this is a commmon problem the wire comes out and gets stuck in holes in the drum.

My top loading washer the water come in but it want move and" there is a smoke smell


It sounds like you have a bad belt, possibly because the drum is stuck. Make sure the drum turns freely and then change the belt.

Maytag washer will not spin. motor overheats and drum won't turn


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.

Maytag Atlantis screeches @ end of spin cycle,


may be something stuck in the drum or a segment raised on the motor. to test either remove the belt and spin the drum if no noise then the motor is faulty. if a noise then there may be a bra wire between the drum/tub.

Coins stuck in washer


I've used a butter knife or putty knife to pry them up.. just enough to allow the coins to slide back out. Just roll the drum back and forth with the knife wedged in there. Good Luck.
