Check to see if it is a pump problem or a transmission problem. First remove both belts see if all the pullys turn freely. if the pump has a tight feel check inside pump for a item jammed in it.look for transmission oil on floor or belts if oil is present transmmision if probably going.ALSO check at the top of the tubs for anything stuk in between tubs.

If you are lucky you need a set of clutches about $45. If you are unlucky you would need a transmission.

Since it spins after you help it, I am guessing clutches.

SOURCE: The Maytag washer doesn't spin and had a burning

You should have a tensioner pully (a small wheel on a piece of spring steel) that hold the belt tight.
If that spring steel is broken or weak, then you will have to take the broken one to your local appliance repair parts shop and obtain a new one.

That should keep the belt tight and keep the drum spinning.... -Jim

Maytag legacy series washer


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.

Maytag Performa PAV920AWW makes squeeling sound when agitating/spinning. Water does not drain completely during spin.


Sounds like brake is partially engaged. There is s kit that may fix that. Part # 12002213.

Maytag Performa clothes washer. Model LAT2500AAE. Made screeching sounds during spin cycle also burned rubber smell. Turned off. Removed and replaced belts. One belt was shot. Ran a test run and still...


Check to see if your water pump is spinning. It could be seized up and the burning smell could be the belt spinning on the seized pulley. Good luck Friend.

Older topload maytag won't agitate , smells like burning belt


Best to look at replacing belt, but first check to make sure nothing is seized, drum spins freely etc.

I replaced both belts on my washer. Last night I smelled burning rubber. Today the cycle will fill, and spin yet will not agitate. What should I do ?


The pump belt has to be adjusted correctly or the drive belt will slip. If it already slipped enough to burn the new belt, you will probably need another drive belt.

My Maytag Performa doesn't work on spin cycle. Burning rubber smell. Belt looks okay. Pumps out rinse water but drum won't spin.


Brakes are locked in the spin cycle or the pinion shaft has dropped down from within the transmission not to engage the agitator.
