Belt stops running and clicky noises

My washer makes a clicky noise in the spin cycle and sometimes in the wash cycle. The belt also seizes up and just make a errrr noise and won't spin or agitate. The belt broke and we replaced it, but it is still making the noise and seizing. We thought something was in the drain discharge, but nothing. Can anybody help?

Washer won't spin and makes noise on spin cycle

Sounds as if it just a broken belt. Take the back off and find where the belt is located to see if broken. Depending on the washer they can be easy to fix

If the unit will not spin at all and makes a humming noise, sounds like something has seized up in the back of the unit. This could be a belt broken, motor seized up, or the transmission, if your unit has one, is gone.

Check your belt it may be lose. A lose belt will cause a squealing noise and the machine spin slower or take time to come up to full speed

Motor will not spin both ways

Starts fine then stalls, I would check the belt,gear case and also for a seized pump bearing. Pull the machine out and remove the access panel with a 5/16 socket and put it into spin, try to watch as you start the cycle. Then if you don't see any problems tilt the machine back and examine the belt for wear, glazing, cracks and rotate the belt to find any frozen items, gear case and pump.

Maytag Performa PAV2300AWW screaching noise, belt problem, pulley broke

My Maytag Performa was making the loud squealing noise. I changed out the water pump/bearing, took care of the problem.
Putting a new belt on just help burn up the bearing (they needed replacing) and probably ruined the new belt. Probably seized the water pump bearing and the belt jumped and broke the motor pully. A washing machine motor is very strong, when that h20 pump bearing seized (or possibly some bearings jamed up) the motor kept on turning that belt and the plastic pully gave in. You'll need to replace that also. If the h20 pumb bearing is turning freely, likely the bearings jammed up but or now loose. That bearing should be tight, no slack or play in it. You can probably wobble the pully on it all around while turning it. The slightest slack is too much.

No spin cycle

Sounds like a pump problem. If the tub is full of water, it likely won't's just too much for the motor. The pump is supposed to do it's job first by pumping out all of the water so the motor can spin the tub. I bet the noise you hear is the belt trying to run in a seized v-belt pulley.

Change the that does the trick.

Squealing noise during spin cycle

The spin cycle activates the fast mode on the motor, squealing normal occurs due to belt slippage. I would check your belts (look for cracks. Check the belt tension as well, most washers have an adjustment, normally on the motor that allows you to increase the tension of the belt.

"howling" noise during spin cycle (still there after changing burned off belt)

Travioso, there was two service flashes out on this model concerning the seal and bearing which means they had an issue with this washer. The howling noise you are hearing is the bearing and will need the new designed triple seal and bearing kit. This should be covered under your warranty, I believe it is 5 years. The numbers for the service flashes are TDL-0048A-B. Call Maytag and inquire about these service flashes, these should be covered. Catriver.
