Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV7551 Top Load Washer
2 Questions: What is the black powder under my motor in belt drive Maytag washer? I have found similar question for direct drive and the answer was coupler. This is a belt drive, I don't believe there is a coupler. How loose or stiff should the motor pulley be? My pump pulley very easily turns either direction but motor pulley is very stiff although it can be moved either direction, it is difficult.
The powder is belt wear. Not to worry though, they last a long time. There is always some wear on all belts as they slide into the channel on the pulley.

SOURCE: Grinding sound from washer
Could be the transmission or the brake assy is going bad. Go to http://www.repairclinc.com and enter your model and see if you wanna spend the money for the parts. The brake assy is very reasonable but the replacement transmission is over 200 bucks. Now you say you spun around the tube freely and found nothing inbetween them . To use it only time will tell but it will only get worse. The wrse that can happen is that the part thats bad will freeze up and not workanymore. Good luck

SOURCE: washer won't spin or agitate
On this model the motor turns one way for spin and the other for agitation. This action is controlled by a thrust bearing located just undernieth the plastic cap on the center pully. Many people are thrown off thinking a transmission problem when it's actually this thrust bearing kit. However, it could be the trans. If so you have a 5 year warranty on it, part only. There is also a number of service flashes on this model including: snubber kit, flash number 26-756, which has to do with vibration during spin. Things you want to make sure of is that the pump is not seized up, leakage from the center tub on to the bearing and brake. You may want to call Maytag and inquire about the service flashes on this model, you could be covered. Other than that my guess without seeing it would be the thrust bearing kit, part number 12500036. Not a bad job, the kit comes with instructions. The hardest part is getting that last washer on. Catriver...Post back.

SOURCE: 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.

Your Thrust bearing on the bottom of the transmission is not releaseing the break. try turning the pulley with the belt off in the opposite direction this should free up your break. If it doesn't replace your brake ststor and rotor as well as your thrust bearing. This should solve your problem. Roger

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.
