Maytag Atlantis; Spin screeches when stopping Now locked up

The washer has screeched when stopping spin. Now the basket lockes up (if I stop while in spin). I can get it to spin again only if the wash cycle is begun again. It also seems to spin slower now. It agitates ok and the motor turns both ways. Thanks for any help.

    Right now the washer is running great. I replaced the belt with no change. Turns out the transmission was bad. The new on came with all new seals and bearings. Cost $235.00

He tub will not spin


If you hear the motor running, then possibly the brake is not releasing.

These models have brake issues, typically which start with a screech when the spin stops, and often wet and/or smelly washer issues due to poor spin speed.

Most likely either part of the brake release mechanism is jamme, the thrust bearing is bad, or the reversing switch.

Maytag Atlantis screeches @ end of spin cycle,


may be something stuck in the drum or a segment raised on the motor. to test either remove the belt and spin the drum if no noise then the motor is faulty. if a noise then there may be a bra wire between the drum/tub.
