Usually this is caused by the pump being cloged or broken. Remove the pump and clean the pump out. Make sure it spins freely by hand.

SOURCE: Washer not spinning/agitat

This problem is usually attributed to a broken motor coupling. The following link provides step-by-step instructions on how to replace one:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385252-replacing_motor_coupling_whirlpool_top

The motor coupling is a small 3-piece component that is installed behind the drive motor and couples it to the transmission. It is common for these small couplers to break as they wear out. The key symptom in determining the cause is the fact the washer will not agitate, but still drains. The reason is because your drain pump is mounted on the front of the drive motor and will still run as long as the drive motor is running. The part number is provided in the link I gave you. A replacement coupler can be purchased at searspartsdirect.com, appliancepartspros.com, pcappliancerepair.com or repairclinic.com. All these sites offer great service with competitive pricing, so shop all of them for the best price. Make sure you "Search by Part Number" when looking up the part. This shouldn't cost more than $20. If you do not wish to order on line, take the part number I provided and go to your nearest appliance parts retailer. This is a common item they should have in their inventory.

If you have questions along the way, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

It sounds like the belt broke or the lid switch could be bad. Use a screw driver to manipulate the switch with the machine on. If you can tip the thing back enough to check the belt. I hope this helps.

Maytag legacy series washer


The drive motor which spins the drum is connected to the drum by a rubber belt. Sounds like the belt is burned through. Make sure you can spin the inside tub by hand to verify that the tub can turn freely before you replace the belt. The hum is from the drive motor just spinning freely.

Where is the model number on maytag quiet plus ii washer


Posted on November 16, 2012 M/F FREE VIDEOS, RESOURCES & RECOMMENDATIONS *NEW* Search Parts For Your Maytag Washer On RepairClinic Every Maytag appliance, including Oversize Capacity Plus and Quiet Plus appliances such as washers and dryers, is manufactured with a product label that displays details about the appliance such as its model and serial numbers. The model number is typically located on the top left corner of the label. Although the location of the product labels varies by appliance type and model, finding the model number for your Oversize Capacity Plus and Quiet Plus appliance shouldn't take long. Maytag only attaches the product label to certain areas of an appliance. *Open the lid on your Oversize Capacity Plus or Quiet Plus washer and look for the product label on the inside bottom right corner of the lid. *Check for the label behind the control panel on the top back of your washer. *Look on the back main portion of your washer, also known as the base frame, on the left.

Maytag washer very loud on spin cycle


I know the exact sound you are hearing, I had the same thing several yrs ago on my old Whirlpool. I think it was something with the transmission, but what I needed was no longer available. I found a lot of info by entering the make/model nr in search box at appliancepartspros.com. You could also look atR44U61 RepairClinic.com

Clanking, sparking sound coming from washer


Need to know a little more info. Need to know if this noise starts when you first turn it on (during the fill up cycle), once the actual washer starts (wash cycle) or when it goes into spin cycle.
