Washer wont spin

My Maytag washer quit spinning. It would drain just fine but wouldnt spin. Finding that the belts were rather glassy and worn I replaced them. While I was at it I went ahead and replaced the springs and glides. I tested it out by running the spin cycle without anything in it. It ran beautifully. Spun great, water pump pumping. When I added clothes and water it shut down completely on the spin cycle. and now it wont drain. I removed the Motor belt to run just the drain pump worked great. what is goin on?

    Also, after tinkering awhile, I do notice that the tub itself looks to be wobbling rater badly when it starts to spin. Tightened shock springs to no avail. Im not sure if this is normal

    If the Lid switch were defective it wouldnt matter if there was anyting in it or not would it? I mean it spun just fine till it was full.

    And also, if the lid switch was defective I wouldnt be able to get the drain pump working would I?

    Could be the Clutch or motor. I would check that the belt is the right one and there isnt much slack in it, is the belt slipping or doing anything at all on the spin cycle with the cloths in? If it spins fine being empty and wont do anything at all with a load, your clutch or motor is shot.

    Both of those parts are expensive. Is there a way to test and make sure which is bad?

SOURCE: Maytag clothes washer, with pump and belt replaced in Nov. 2007, clothes were too wet after spin cycle

The start of the spin cycle is dependent on the pump pumpin out water and the later level switch sensing that the water level is low enough. The water level switch has (usually) a clear tube connected to it and is found in the control panel. You will want to check continuity at different times. First you will fill the tub to the highest water level. Then unplug the machine. By screwing in the screw on the water level switch. Scew it all the way in. then you will check continutity. there should be no cont. between green and brown. and there should be cont between green and black or yellowblack. Do this continuity test with the wires off the switch. Once this test is complete, reattach the wires and plug in the machine and set the timer on spin or drain. When the tub is pumped dry, stop the spin cycle and unplug the washer and do the continuity test again. This time you should have continutiy from green to brown. and no continuity from green to black or yellowblack. Now when i mention the colors that means the placement where those wires were. Make note before you remove them so that you can get them back to place. If you do not get these readings, the water level switch is bad, or there is a leak in the air pressure tube leading to it. At that point I would replace the entire switch and tube. I wish you the best of luck.

I have a maytag top load washer the washer will drain but will not spin


Maytag washers have two belts one for turning the pump and the other for making it spin. Sounds like the belt for the spin needs to be replaced. It is something that you can do. Maytag washer belts are quite easy to change. Hope this helpedd. Thank you for using Fix ya.

  • if it is neither draining noe spinning check If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt.

    Washer not spinning


    Sounds like the brake liner could be broken. When the machine starts to spin, the motor turns in the opposite direction to the wash cycle and causes the bowl to lift off the brake liner and the bowl then spins freely. Either the riser cam is worn/broken or the brake liner is broken. This is quite involved and you may have to call in a tech.

    Maytag washer will not spin


    If your washer does everything but does not spin, it is your outlet filter which is blocked. Locate this and clean out, it has to work fine. Refer user's manual.
