Worth going at this a bit at a time.

First look at the routing of the belt. What keeps it tight? has anything that ought to be keeping it tight worked loose?

Now take the belt off and spin the tub by hand. Does it move freely? Does it make any funny noises? Does the motion feel lumpy or gritty? This will help you decide whether you have a bearing problem or an old sock that's got where it shouldn't have.

If either of these tests hints at a problem, investigate further and fix it.

Then, regardless of whether you found or fixed anything, fit a new belt. Quite often the problem is just that as they get old, they stretch and then don't grip so tightly - and if it has been slipping because something else was loose or stuck, the heat generated will since have made it stretch anyway.

Three possibilitys

the easier: belt not spanned enough. there should be a spanning possibility, usualy using the motor fitting

teh medium: belt worn out. needs replacement.

the difficult: it might also be that the tub bearings are worn. need replacement then.

During wash cycle of my Maytag Legacy SAV515DEWW, tub moves freely and after spin cycle, tub keeps spinning for a while.


Maytag has a drum brake located on the bottom of yor machine. You need to remove the brake and clean it up or perhaps replace the device.
Google Maytag washer drum brake for several "how to"sites

Maytag washer tub will not spin.


There is a clutch assembly under the tub that controls the tub and the agitator. It sounds like the problem is with that.

Loose belts on Maytag Washer LAT2300AAE


It is normal for the belts on this model to be loose. Normally the noise that you are hearing is either the damper (a white plastic type material,comes in a kit) or the pump making the noise. Take the belt off the pump and put it into a spin cycle and see if you hear it. If so ck the tub bearing for rust or leaking and the damper for wear. If you don't here it, ck the pump.

My washer will spin but very slowly. Motor and shaft spins out of washer.


Your problem sounds like the drum/tub drive clutch is worn. Especially if the motor operates fine and attempts to spin the tub. This model is a direct drive unit, no belts, so if the motor operates during the spin and drain cycles but the tub is barely moving, only two problems can cause this, bad clutch (which is engaged only during the spin cycles) or worn drive coupling on the motor. If the coupling were a problem, though, you would also notice sluggish or erratic agitation during the wash cycle.

Hope this helps

Shakes violently during spin cycle from back to


I had this problem with my front loader as well. It is probably the mounts or "level shocks" on the bottom of the unit under the tub. I have a Kenmore by Frigidaire and had to replace the "level shocks". I only paid about $43.00 and was not that hard to put on. Look under your machine and see if the shocks are connected to the tub. Check under the top panel also to see if that particular model has mounts up there too.

White flakes in circular pattern under washer of 7 years. Time to replace?


First we started hearing a grinding sound during the spin cycle. My husband replaced the belt, which was loose and not helping the spinning of the tub any, thus much wetter clothing after spin cycle. The belt gave us another week of use out of the machine and did drain the tub better, but then water started leaking into the tub from the water inlet (or area where water rushes in to fill tub), and was not up to the usual "rush" of water, when filling up. The grinding sound started again during the spin cycle, and so now we are assuming it is the ball bearings or the brakes and perhaps the water pump as well. Estimates for these jobs on the boards seems to run from $400-500.00. The machine is only 7 years old, but after reading so many posts, maybe I should count my blessings that it lasted that long! This was an all mechanical machine, which I loved. Atlantis Maytag, a very sturdy and solid looking machine. Never did really clean that well though. SOLUTION: we are getting a new machine.

Start by checking the belt by tilting the machine back and examining for wear, glazing and cracks, next pull the belt to make sure everything turns. Post back if this looks fine.

Maytag washer bangs during spin cycle


chances are you had a blockage in the pump and it tried to spin with the water still in the drum. check the bottom hose and filter for blockages so it does not occur again.
