Question about Maytag Dependable Care LAT9706
Put on a new drive belt, it now agitates but won't spin. It pumps fine, the moter moves smoothly, it agitates fines. I have it apart, things look fine, no oil or shavings and the clutch seemes to engauge. However when moving the tub by hand cranking with the clutch its quite an effort. Thanks. This is the second time this has happened. Replaced main drive belt first time, fixed problem. 6 months later, it is happening again. The tub gets VERY hard to turn and ends up burning up the belt. Sometimes, letting it sit for a while, it will correct itself, but not all of the time. At wits end.
Ok lets see here;your transmission can go in two directions.if you turn the middle pully one way it will agaitate if you turn the oppisit direction you can watch [from under neath]the brake raise as the cam seperates and lifts the brake.now with the brake lifted ,your tub should spin.if its not lifting the brake you need a new center pully kit[i have had to do many]it comes with washers ,bearings and cams.if the brake lifts and your tub still wont spin you may have a pice of clothing between the two tubs[i had that one to,many times]i hope that helps.you can email thru fixya if need more advice God bless ,tom

You are correct that motor turns one direction for agitate and the other for spin. The problem you describe sounds serious but there is a chance it is not. First, try to turn the transmission by hand. If it wont turn by hand, remove the agitator and see if something has gotten under it and has it locked to the basket. To remove the agitator, pop off the top cap and look down inside. You will see the bolt that holds the agitator on. After you take it loose the agitator will slide off.
If there is nothing there, the transmission will need to be replaced. If the washer is less than 5 years old, the transmission may still be covered by warranty. Check your owners manual for warranty details. Post back to let me know what you find out.
