SOURCE: Washer will not agitate but will spin

You are correct that motor turns one direction for agitate and the other for spin. The problem you describe sounds serious but there is a chance it is not. First, try to turn the transmission by hand. If it wont turn by hand, remove the agitator and see if something has gotten under it and has it locked to the basket. To remove the agitator, pop off the top cap and look down inside. You will see the bolt that holds the agitator on. After you take it loose the agitator will slide off.

If there is nothing there, the transmission will need to be replaced. If the washer is less than 5 years old, the transmission may still be covered by warranty. Check your owners manual for warranty details. Post back to let me know what you find out.

It sounds like the plastic inside the agitator cog are worn. The smell is the plastic cog turning but the agitator not turning.

Take off the top of the agitator. If any screw are available remove them. If not grab the agitator from the bottom and yank off. Unscrew the agitator drive cog and inspect underside of agitator. Go to an appliance repair shop and reorder a new one. Between $15-30.

SOURCE: Replacing maytag thrust bearing kit 12002213

yes you can do it yourself no special tools are need just a couple good flathead screwdrivers and a lot of patiance be sure to put all the new washers and bearing back on in the same order the old ones came off putting the C clip on can be a little tricky but take you time and it can be done you may hvw to use the flat head to pry on the trans. shaft to get the clip in the groove then use a pair of chanell locks or pliers to snap it on if you get a new style bearing it may not look like the one you take off and not have all he washers just snap the small plastic pice onto the bearing put it on the the pulley the most of the time just the thin washe then the C clip the dust cover put belt back on the test machine

Washer makes loud grinding noise during agitation and does not agitate - it is a maytag atlantis.... fix or replace?


I suspect the thrust bearing kit is bad. This comes with great instructions and is easily replaced. I would recommend changing this before replacing the machine. You are not out much if it does not work, but I am confident you will get it going by replacing this! This is a VERY common problem with these washers and the new kit has been redesigned.

Maytag A 108 suddenly will not spin or agitate or drain


It could be the timer, but it also could be the motor, or the transmission. Do you notice any signs of the motor trying to start? These would include a humming noise, lights dimming, etc. When you say there is no response from the machine, does this include the water valves & agitator, or just the spin?

Similar issue for MAVT446AWW machine. Tech ordered a brake, rotor, belt and thrust bearing. I had a service contract with Lowes and they elected not to fix as too expensive. Gave me a store credit for a new machine.

My Maytag performa washer will not agitate or go into the spin cycle. It makes a loud noise instead


From what you're describing I suspect the thrust bearing needs replaced. The thrust bearing is what releases the brakes. You will not be able to rotate the basket manually with the brakes set. I recommend replacing the thrust bearing kit part number

Maytag PAV2300 - Washer agitates during wash. on spin cycle motor runs and belt is fine, but drun does not spin. Water drains. Why does it not spin?


Hi, The most common problem is the thrust bearing kit. The thrust bearing is located on the lower shaft of the transmission. The kit includes a new pulley and hardware. The part #12002213 also includes instructions.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Maytag Washer PAV2300AWW


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
