No - it is likely the key for the pulley that has broken.

You'll need to remove the pulley to see if the keyway is damaged. If so - you'll need to change the motor.

Loud Bearing Noise During Spin Cycle- MAH4000AWW


I don't know these front loaders so well but, here's a couple of things to look for.
1) If belt driven, look for the spring loaded tensioner. Once tension is released, check the pully & see if it has excessive play.
2) Check the gasket on front panel & see if drum has rubbed thru it in order to make metal to metal contact.
3) There is alot of pressure on that rear bearing...make sure it's not egg shaped or scored on the inside.

If all else fails, shotgun it (in other words, replace those moving parts you suspect:)

Sounds like the main bearing on the back of the drum assembly has gone and needs replacing, the drum has moved out of alignment or the electric motor has burnt out. Best to have a Maytag repair tech or someone who is qualified to look at it.

I had a lot of sheets and a couple of towels in the washing machine and it eventually the load just stopped before the spin cycle(dial on sanitary mode) I drained the water and tried to drain and spin and...


Thank you for using FixYa. Does the drum of your machine appear to move freely when turned by hand? If it does with no resistance, I would say that the drive belt has either come off the motor or it has perhaps been placed under a strain with a "heavy" wet load and and snapped. The drive belt can be accessed through the panel on the rear of the machine. If the belt has simply come off, run the belt round the small pully wheel on the motor and then work it onto the large wheel on the back of rhe drum. Turning the large wheel on the back of the drum in a clockwise direction whilst guiding the belt on will make matters easier.
I hope this as helped. If so please place a Most Helpfull vote

You need to check this part of you machine:

Test the lid switch
Test the timer control
Test the centrifugal switch
Test the water level switch
Inspect the motor coupler
Inspect the drive belt(belt drive only)
Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
Test the motor
Inspect the pulley
Test the transmission

Check this parts this are the some cause to not spinning.

Machine stops on it own


Take the board out and flip it over and check the r11 resistor. It is usually burned out.

If there are no errors then the motor controller thinks everything is ok.
Do you hear the motor spinning?

the belt in the back may be bad or jumped off.
If you want to look for yourself open the top panel.(3 screws in top rear)
