Maytag top loader washer

Maytag Washer model LAT9406AAE top loader. installed new seal kit and new baring assembly. No leaking, but tub won't spin, although it does agitate just fine, so it's on the tranny OK. Took it all apart and redid. OK on no leaking, but still won't spin. Belts on and moving; smells like burning on spin cycle, of course.

    Have the same problem with my Maytag LAT9757AAE, everything works except spin. I noticed that the drive belt is just slipping around the pulley on spin cycle. Tried to turn the drive pulley manually and it stops and won't turn anymore when it hits the bottom of brake assembly.

The brakes are probably stuck or the cam that releases them is damaged

Leaking from bottom


Sounds like the tub seal. My MAV2755AWW (Maytag Atlantis top loader) is doing the same thing right now. Here is the solution I found: http://www.applianceaid.com/washer-tub-seal-replacement.php.

Caution: You'll need some tools, like a spanner wrench for your model...order this now of you plan to do this work yourself. You can find it for 15 dollars online, but if you go to Maytag, it can cost you upward of 90 dollars. You can get a tub seal kit for about 60 dollars. The cost for a repair tech to do this job was almost $300...gauge the $75 you going to spend plus the hours of work if you don't know what you're doing, against this cost. Good luck!

The machine doesn't spin properly and doesn't drain the water


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Lid Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and transmission. Another common problem is the lid switch.

Drive Belt If the washer won't spin, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin properly.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer spin the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.
Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.

Drive Block If the washer won't spin the drive block might be worn out or may have come loose. Underneath the agitator the drive block connects the inner tub (the one that spins around) to the transmission. If the drive block wears out the transmission shaft will still spin but the tub may not - or it may spin slowly. This also usually causes a lot of noise. The drive block is relatively easy to replace.

Clutch Assembly If the washer won't spin, the clutch assembly might be worn out. The clutch assembly makes the connection between the transmission and the inner tub. It is designed to allow the tub to get up to the proper spin speed gradually. As the clutch wears out it may prevent the tub from spinning. The clutch is not repairable, if it is loud or not working properly it will need to be replaced.

Clutch Band kit If the washer won't spin, the clutch band kit might be worn out. The clutch makes the connection between the transmission and the inner tub. It is designed to allow the tub to get up to the proper spin speed gradually. As the clutch wears out it may prevent the tub from spinning. If the washer won't spin, this clutch band kit may need to be replaced.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged It will have to be replaced.

Tub Bearing If the washer won't spin the tub bearing might have seized. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace.

Tub Seal and Bearing Kit If the washer won't spin the tub seal and bearing might have seized. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace.

Bearing If the washer won't spin the bearing might have seized. This is not common. The bearing doesn't require any normal maintenance. They generally go bad when the tub seal fails and allows water to leak past into the bearing.
Basket Drive If the washer won't spin the basket drive clutch might be worn out. The basket drive sits on top of the transmission and engages with the inner tub. If the basket drive wears out the tub won't spin.

Basket Drive Hub Kit If the washer won't spin the basket drive hub might be worn out. The hub is a set of plastic gears underneath the agitator. The basket drive hub kit is easy to replace with standard hand tools.
Transmission If the washer won't spin the transmission might be worn out or defective. There are numerous more likely causes when a washer won't spin, which should be checked first.

My maytag performa pav 2300 is making a loud noise while its spinning. Sounds like metal on metal. Its working fine. Its just that noise. We just got a new motor yesterday. What could be the problem ?...


Hello
On this model washer the noise is most likely caused by a worn washer tub seal assembly. remove agitator (nut on the top under cap), spin basket and tub assembly. remove seal and install new one.

I have a Maytag top loader FAV6800AWW. I changed the clutch assembly about 6 months ago. Now it does not spin fast and makes a clicking noise. The clothes are still wet at the end of the cycle. Do I...


I feel you need fix the root cause a Leaky Tub Seal.

Google this

FAV6800A/FAV9800A Outer Tub bearing replacement

See what is involved and iff you decide to go forward I will help on that forum. This forum is just to difficult to work in with no edit feature.


The Clicking sound may be a broken Large Wrap spring.

Place the washer with a load in the wash basket start a Spin Only cycle and release the washer top jus high enough to observe wash basket Spin action. There may be none to very little. If you drop the Clutch Pulley out I believe you will find much rust. You have to replace that tub seal and I would do a complete outer tub rebuild. Without replacing the Clutch Pulley around $60 for bearings, Tub and Seal Tranny O-ring.

Review the post

FAV6800A/FAV9800A Outer Tub bearing replacement and see if this is a direction for you.

Wont spin


Sounds like the transmission seal had failed sometime back and has leaked the lubricant causing the transmission to overheat and now possibly seizing the gears, if this is the case the transmission will have to be replaced. Depending on the age of the washer, (5 years or less) you should contact Maytag to see if they will compensate you by way of furnishing the new transmission for free, but you will be responseable for the labor charge from a tech to do the replacement.
If they will not cover the part, you will probably be better off to replace the washer than to invest in the cost of a new trans and labor.
Good Luck !

Roars when it spin's..but it spins freely? i think its a roller,but how do i get to them ?


If your Neptune front loader washer is roaring in spin cycle you have a bad drum bearing. This repair requires a bearing and seal overhaul. The bearing comes as an assembly with the outer tub. The seal kit usually comes with tub assy. The basket shaft will need to be changed also. This is a time consuming and expensive repair, best done by expert. If washer is still spin drying clothes ok, you might be able to get by for awhile. Repair is usually not cost effective unless you are under a warranty.

Top Loader LAT9406AAE s/n 23257742UQ Will not operate in any mode


if the washer will not fill I would change the water inlet valve. this could be the problem for all other issues. if the machine has no water in it, likely the timer will not advance to wash.

Maytag top loading washer will not agitate


My rule of thumb: Take what you paid for the washer new and divide by number of years without repairs. That is your cost per year for the washer. If the repair will get you another year and is less than the number above do the repair. If you have done more than 2 major repairs in a year it is time to think new. eric

Loud spin cycle - leaks water


No boot on a top loader, the tub seal and bearing are gone, water leaked from the tub seal, rusted the bearing and quite possibly the milk stool and transmission. Check your warranty, the transmission may have a 5 year limited warranty, usually it will include the tub seal and bearing with the kit.
