Question about Maytag Washing Machines
My maytag washer has a problem where the agitator will not spin. I was hoping it would be the kit, but the bottom also does not spin. all of it spins in spin cycle. The agitator wil spin by hand so it is not bound, and if when the washer is trying to do a wash cycle, you manually spin it backwards, it acts like it "connects" for a minute and is hit by a hammer, but then it stops again. Any ideas?

Its probably you stator plate and rotor. But you need special tools for this repair. There a spring that is under 200 pounds of pressure and if you take the screws off that hold the plate its going to fly into you face if your dont use the special tools to depress the spring. Is it more of a clanking kinda of noise? DOes it olnly happen with heavy loads? Try this out. Fill the washer with water only. and get it into a wash cycle with water only. If there is no noise then put in like a load of towels. A heavy load. Now if you hear the noise now then its for sure you stator plate and rotor..hope this helps, but like i said you need those special tools to do this repair or injury can result from the spring part.
