Re: Maytag washer will not spin

If your washer does everything but does not spin, it is your outlet filter which is blocked. Locate this and clean out, it has to work fine. Refer user's manual.

I have a maytag over capacity plus heavy duty 2 speed 10 cycle washer it fills with water fine you hear the motor kick in to girate but doesent spin or you put it on spin cycle it sounds like it is...

The motor is working, but the mechanism not engaged by the helix so the shaft can not move therefore no agitation or spinning. Motor is designed to turn 2 directions: clockwise and counterclockwise for agitation and spinning. Therefore there are 2 mechanisms to assist these tasks. The drain is control by a separate pump and it is still good also.
The tube has to be out to replace the helix for agitation and a part to engage with the spinning rotation to release the brake so the spinning function can work. These parts are cheap, but the the labor is not. Hope this can help

Maytag washer, model: LAT8415AAE top loader. Washer fills with water but will not start agitating,spin or drain.

Check lid switch. Most will not run with lid open and the switch may not be pressed down when door is closed

Washer will fill with water but the agitator won't spin.

No agitation or spin in any cycle? If so and the machine will drain check the coupler.

Pav2200 model

Sounds like a transmission problem. It's locked in agitation mode. When it is in agitation mode you can't turn the drum or move the agitator. I'd check that out.
