Washer doesn't spin on rinse cycle . it does make noises but no movement


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

No guarantee but this sounds very much like the belt is slipping ;-0)
Belts are not expensive- sorry I do not know how much yours would cost- and are easy to be changed by a competent person:-
REMOVE POWER FROM THE MACHINE AND REMOVE THE BACK.
The motor support bolts should be loosened and the old belt removed. Often putting the new belt on is a bit of a struggle, even with the motor 'loose', because it is new and smaller!
Once on it should be tensioned by pulling the motor against the belt firmly- but not over tight- and the motor support bolts tightened.
ON NO ACCOUNT SHOULD ANY FORM OF LEVERAGE BE USED TO TENSION THE BELT. THAT COULD LEAD TO DAMAGE TO THE BELT, MOTOR AND BEARINGS- EXPENSIVE!

Hope this is your problem solved.
Good luck,
John C

I have a maytag washer, toploader which was working fine until recently. Now when it starts rotating, there is a burning smell all in the area. What causes it?


Hi


Your washer uses a belt to transfer the power to the tub from the motor. If the belt slips, stretches, or breaks, it can cause friction and a burning smell, most likely a burning “rubber” smell. The belt is located either from the back access panel or from the underside of the washer. The solution is to replace the belt with a new one. To replace the belt you can open the back lid of the washer.
Remove the old belt & remove the bolt holding motor. Now remove the motor, remove & replace the plastic isolators with the new ones supplied with the belt on the motor spindles. After re-installing the motor & bolt adjust the new belt.


Please post back for any further assistance.

My neptune washer smells like rubber burning when i wash clothes


Hi
Older top load washers use a belt to drive to transfer the energy from motor to drum. However, if the belt slips, stretches, or breaks, it can cause friction and a burning smell, most likely a burning “rubber” smell. The belt is located either from the back access panel or from the underside of the washer.

The solution is to replace the belt with a new one. To replace the belt you can open the back lid of the washer. Remove the old belt & remove the bolt holding motor. Now remove the motor, remove & replace the 2 plastic isolators with the new ones supplied with the belt on the motor spindles. After re-installing the motor & bolt adjust the new belt.

Please post back for any further assistance.

Maytag washer


sounds like you're suffering from the pump belt either stretched due to overload and overheating the belt, or the belt is off the pulley.
You can remove the front cover by removing two screws near the bottom of the front panel. Tip the bottom of the front panel outward and then disengage the upper clips as you pull forward. This exposes the pump, motor and you can reach underneath to the pulley and the belt. The motor spring holds the tension on the belt. If the belt is damaged, replace. Check the pump to make sure nothing got sucked inside... Maytag's pump are opaque plastic so you can see inside without removing the hoses... This is usually the reason for a tub that won't spin or drain... Good luck let me know.

MAYTAG WASHER DOES NOT SPIN AND DOES NOT DRAIN


Something may be stuck in the belt or inside of the machine.
The following may help.

The drive belt (or belts) of a washing machine may become worn or damaged, causing noisy operation or stopping the washer entirely. A damaged drive belt is easy to replace. Remove the back panel of the washer to gain access to the belt. To remove the belt:

Step 1: Loosen the bolt on the motor bracket and move the motor to put slack in the belt.

Step 2: Remove the old belt and stretch a new one into place on the pulleys.

Step 3: To put tension on the new belt, use a hammer handle or a short pry bar to push the motor into position while you tighten the bolt in the adjustable bracket. The belt should have about 1/2 inch deflection when you press on it at the center point, midway between the pulleys. If the belt is too loose, it will slip on the pulleys, causing the machine to malfunction. If the belt is too tight, it will wear very quickly and will probably become so hot that it will start to smoke or smell.

Loose pulleys can also cause problems. Most pulleys are fastened to shafts with setscrews around the hub of the pulley. These screws must be tight or else the pulley or belt will slip. The resulting malfunction may seem to be caused by a faulty motor, but it can be corrected by tightening the pulleys and adjusting the belt. For this reason, always check the belts and pulleys before working on the motor.

Wm noisy


drum bearings, check and investigate, remove drive belt and then rotate, if still noisy then yes its the drum bearings, if the noise stops when the belt removed the motor bearings are faulty costly repair on most models, sorry oh there is also the possibility there is something lodged within the drum cavity between the lining and the drum casing
