No spin cycle,on any setting. seem like it wants to spin but can't


you have a bad motor coupling,they brake all the time,remove the two screws holding down the top console,lift it up,with a screw driver remove the two metal clips and remove the lid switch harness,it's a white plastic piece in the middle between the two metal clips,now remove the frame of the washer,down the bottom you'll see the pump,with a screw driver remove the two metal clips and remove the pump,now remove the two screws and two more metal clips and remove the motor,on the back of the motor you'll see the motor coupling,it should have three plastic arms on it but they probably are broke,also on the tranny the other half of the coupling is there remove that,the part number is 285753A and it's around 19 bucks, tap on the new coupling one part on the motor shaft,the other on the tranny shaft and slide the black rubber piece on the tranny part of coupling and slide the motor onto the other half so they lock together and this is what spins the tub.if you need help with anything else let me know,also if you can let me know how you make out with your washer,good luck. the coupling brakes all the time from overloading the washer<!-- from fixya rte -->

Loud noise when in rinse cycle


Hi,
It sounds like your main bearing has gone out. It's quite an expense to fix and generally isn't worth fixing even if you do the repair yourself as the parts run about $600 by themselves and it takes about 1/2 a day to replace them. You can't replace the bearing itself so you have to replace the rear half of the outter tub and the inner tub.

Check your motor coupling, it is between the motor and transmission,made of rubber and plastic, if it is not broken and you heard a lot of screaching ,i would say it is your basket drive tube-could have gotten worn down on the bottom around the clutch brake area! Better purchase a used basket drive tube,install it with a new clutch and it will start working for you.

Thank you !!

When it is on the rinse cycle it makes a horrible sound


could be a clutch or drive tube problem, on the bottom of your basket drive tube is a thrust washer,it eventually wears off the boyyom of the tube and your clip that holds on your brake release arm falls off breaking your clutch arm and thus no spin will happen ,, sounds like yours is grinding off the bottom of the basket drive tube,, mine was always screaching on the rinse spin and finally gave out when it wore the bottom off my tube, went and bought a used tube installed it with a new clutch and works fine now no more screaching!

The spin cycle is not working. I already replaced the clutch assembly. Still, it did not wrok.


when you replaced the clutch did you look at the bottom of your basket drive tube to see if it was worn down,also the white plastic brake release arm could have the 2 little lineup pins broken off, or your drive block could be worn out,it is under your agitator,,,,,i found out on my machine that the bottom of the basket drive tube has a brass t post and the thrust washer had worn it off completely,the clip that holds the brake release arm fell off and broke those 2 little fingers off the arm,,,,,,i had to buy a used basket drive tube installed it with a new clutch and now the spin cycle works fine !! give it a good look at

Spinning cycle


When it is spinning, there is no agitation. Why? there is 1 motor with 2 directions to provide sinning and agitation by 2 different mechanisms. The sound from spinning, and rinsing could be some worn out parts from the mechanism need to be inspected and replaced accordingly such as the pulley, the clutch, the brake and 8 springs from bottom tube hung to the chassis to keep the tube balance under the load. Hope this can help.

My maytag washer won't turn or spin..


This advice is for certain Maytag TOP LOADING washers equipped with a vertical transmission and drive belt system.

Loud squeaking noises during the wash cycle or, at the end of the spin cycle, can be attributed to a worn snubber ring and/or brake assembly. The snubber is a plastic ring located under the tub support. It helps to reduce vibration as the tub agitates and spins. You cannot lubricate the snubber to get rid of the noise. In fact, you may damage the washer if you do. A small amount of corn starch can be sprinkled under the bottom tub support where the snubber ring is located to get rid of some noise related problems (this will be the round metal plate where the tub support meets the bottom casing of the machine). A worn snubber will also cause some vibration or out of balance problems. The brake tends to glaze over after it has become worn and will squeak or cause sudden jerking of the washer when the spin cycle stops. If the corn starch tip does not get rid of the squeaks, I would recommend replacing the following parts:

Brake Stator
Brake Rotor and Lining
Snubber:


You will need: Brake Removal Kit*

*Brake removal tool is required in order to remove the brake assembly and/or to replace the snubber. There is a 200lbs brake spring located under the Brake Stator that must be compressed PRIOR to removal or you could cause injury to yourself.

The parts required to make the repairs aren't very expensive, but the tool required to do it can cost about $100. This repair I would rate as DIFFICULT for the average do-it-yourselfer. If you've never worked on this type of washer before, this is not a job that I would recommend. However, Maytag DOES provide informative how-to instructions with all their parts.

To replace the snubber and brake assembly:

1. Remove the front case of the washer to access the washer interior.
2. Tilt the washer towards the back and remove the drive belt. Slide the drive motor towards the center pulley to relieve belt tension.
3. Remove the drive pulley by removing the center cap and retaining ring from the drive shaft. Remember how these components go back together. There should be a couple of plastic drive bearing pieces and some metal washers above the pulley on the shaft.
3. Lower washer and remove hoses from the wash tub.
4. Remove the suspension springs. NOTE: Pulling the wash tub towards the spring you are removing will release some of the tension on it.
5. I usually remove the entire wash tub with transmission still installed at this point and place it upside down outside the washer for ease of accessing everything. (There are other methods, but I find this one easier).
6. This is where the brake compression tool will be required to remove the brake rotor, stator and snubber ring. (Instructions come with the tool). Basically, it involves compressing the spring by turning the compression tool CW with a wrench, loosening all the bolts on the brake stator housing, and then slowly turning the compression tool CCW.
7. The brake compression tool is removed at this point and the snubber, brake rotor, brake stator and brake spring can be accessed.
8. Replace any worn parts, and reassemble the brake assembly. DO NOT forget to place the brake spring back in place before putting the brake rotor back on.
9. Place the tub assembly right side up and lower back into washer.
10. Reconnect all hoses back to wash tub.
11. Reinstall all tub suspension springs. NOTE: It’s easier to start in the back of the washer and work your way towards the front.
12. Tilt washer back and reinstall drive pulley. NOTE: When placing drive pulley back on shaft turn pulley slightly to ensure it is seated all the way on the shaft. NOTE: If the shaft had multiple metal washers, you may only need ONE after replacing the snubber ring. Retain the extra washer for later use if needed. If the drive pulley is reinstalled correctly, a groove will be visible at the end of the drive shaft for the retaining ring to go back in place.
13. Reinstall drive belt.

NOTE: The following link lists the recommended tools to complete this repair:

Spring Removal Tool (item #455570)
Brake/Bearing/Seal Removal Tool Kit (item #997909)
