Question about Maytag PAV2300 Top Load Washer
Started to make a squeeling sound when in the spin cycle, then stopped. when i try to restart it in any thing cycle. the motor starts, then turns off in a few seconds, then i smell something burning. I looked at the pulleys and when i try to start it the motor pulley turns but the other two do not turn. Then it shuts off.
See if you can turn by hand.. the transmission pully and pump pully.. sounds like one of them is bound up, the smell was probly the belt burning with nothing starting to spin

You should have a tensioner pully (a small wheel on a piece of spring steel) that hold the belt tight.
If that spring steel is broken or weak, then you will have to take the broken one to your local appliance repair parts shop and obtain a new one.
That should keep the belt tight and keep the drum spinning.... -Jim
