Re: Nothing stuck in pump ... what is and where is the...
If you are talking about the motor coupler, it is located behind the drive motor. You will need to unplug the machine, remove the drain pump, disconnect the wire connectors to the drive motor, then remove the clips that hold the drive motor in place. The coupler consists of two plastic pieces with three prongs (one piece is on the drive motor, one on the transmission) with a rubber bushing in between. I don't know what your original problem is, so I hope this helps you at least find what you were looking for. Let me know if I can help any further.

Most likely the lid switch or the motor coupler. Is it just doing nothing when time to drain and spin leaving it full of water? If so, replace lid switch. If it's pumping water out and you hear motor running, but it's not spinning, then motor coupler is most likely broken. In second scenario, also could be clutch or other transmission problem.
send the model number?if it's a top load washer check the lid switch,if the switch is broke it will fill and do nothing,if it's the coupling the motor will run but nothing will move,close the lid and then open it a little and close it a few times,if you don't hear a clicking sound you have a bad lid switch,you can also open the lid,set the timer on spin and with a screw driver push down on the switch on the right side,if it spins the lid switch is bad,it has to work only if you hear it clicking when you push down on it,if it don't click it's bad.let me know what you find.also if the motor is humming you could have something stuck in the pump,pull off the frame,pop the metal clips on the pump and slide it off and start it,if the motor runs you have a bad pump or something stuck in it.
there is a good chance it does but you can check the transmisson coupler and make sure it is in good shape.this coupler is located inbetween the motor and the transmission. checking this may help in the long run you may need to replace the transmission.
you can also remove the inner tub and make sure there is nothing stuck in there that would cause this problem
take a wet dry shop vac and attach it tothe end off the drain hose and remove all the water.once the water is removed move the washer away from the wall. tilt it back and look under the front you should see the drain pump and motor remove the two black hoses and look for anything stuck in the drain pump.
then look for a black rubber piece with two white plastic pieces on both side if this is broken then replace it this is your transmsiion coupler.
if there is nothing wrong with either one of these items then you may need to rpelace the lid switch.
You have a bad coupler. This is very common but not to worry. This is a direct drive machine and there are very few things that go bad on them. One is the coupler, another is the water pump. Other than these, nothing else hardly ever goes bad on them.
Now for the coupler, It's located between the motor and transmission. You will need to remove the case. Once you have, you only need to un clip the water pump and then the motor. You will then see the coupler. If you haven't been inside one of these, you don't get in through the back. You will take a screw out of each end of the console. Pull forward and flip back. Now un clip the clips on each corner under the console. Unplug the wire under the console. Now pull forward on the case, tilting it toward you and pick up. You are now inside the machine. The water pump it at the bottom. Good luck.

Maytags have both belt and direct drive washers. UNPLUG machine. No numbers for model... If it is a belt drive machine you should inspect the belt for damages (broken, worn out or off the pulleys) and tension replace if needed. If it is a direct drive it is probably the drive coupler. From below you can remove the pump and motor by removing the strapps that clamp them together. pump first, they just pull off after unstrapping them. The coupler has three parts and comes as a repair kit. The coupler prongs and or the rubber should be obviously broken or worn out if it is the problem. Replace with new parts and reassemble... Yes fixable in about an hour. Online parts for about $14.00.
could be the coupler and the only way to truely check it is to take the pump, then the motor off. But it seems strange to me that you say it works fine. Is it spinning? usually when the coupler breaks it sounds horrible and usually will not spin but it will drain.I would check the coupler again.
