Washer fills but won't start

I have a Maytag Performa, Model LAT2300AAE, top-load washing machine. It fills with water, but it won't start. There's a buzzing sound coming from the knob. I replaced the timer, but that's not the problem. I replaced the lid switch approximately 5 years ago and it still appears to be working fine. I know the problem could be one of several things, but can you offer some guidance as to what the problem might be? Thank you in advance!

SOURCE: maytag top load washer won't pump water out=intermittent problem

If your lid switch was the problem I dont think (and I might be wrong) that it would spin in the first place.

Your pump may have a separate belt and it could be loose or worn out but this is on older models. The pump may not be turning or turning and not pumping. The pulley may be turning on the shaft and its not pumping. Give it a spin and see if you see it turning inside. If not replace it.

The motor and timmer sounds good because of the "spin" you discribed. So we are left with the pump or a filter if it has one.
Look in the lower section find the pump front right hand corner I believe. Trace the hose back up to the tub above nothing in between and you have eliminated the filter. I filter could be any shape but will either attach with 2 hoses or 1 hose and attached to the side or bottom of the outer tub.

I think your pump is probably stopped up, strings and lint especially if you have some older rugs, towels, and rags that are shedding or coming apart. You can try and clean it pretty easily Unplug. Then remove it and look inside it. Catch all the water you can and keep another towel close by. Examine the water. Looking for lint and the like. If its pretty clean looking and not turning freely look for signs of something wrapped up inside it.

Hope this helps. Please rate me accordingly and good luck.

SOURCE: Maytag Atlantis MAV6257AWW

I have a Maytag Atlantis MAV6257AWW. I need to replace the transmission. So I removed all four screws from the inner tub but I couldnt get the inner tub pull out, it's stuck.

From what I read on here, the seal nut doesn't have to be remove in order to remove the inner tub.

I tried every, I even hammer the shaft down from the inside of the tub but still no luck. Can someone help, thanks.

The problem is simple and easy to fix. Your washer has a tubing which runs from the base of the tub to the water pressure switch. It might have vibrated loose from the switch, or their can be some sediment in the tub. Blow out the tubing and reattach it securely to the switch and pump out the water in the tub. Then try it again. I wrote an article about this:

Burned belt?


Yes, smell like your belt.. if there is water in tub, try to get it out... (wet vac)... slide your washer out and tilt it back so you can see under... there should be 2 belts.. 1 for gear and 1 for water drain pump... and you can check Sears.com for parts.. good luck...

Just rehook the clear tube back onto the air dome (back right side of drum), drain any water from the drum, the refill, pressure switch will reset itself. Start to fill on small load size first, then move up when washer starts to be sure it reset all the sizes.
