Question about Washing Machines
Washer will run. Agitator stops. Drive pulley locks up and belt begins to burn. Shut off washer and turned pulley by hand. Got it past a really hard spot and then the waher will agitate again. No problems with spin cycle.

Travioso, there was two service flashes out on this model concerning the seal and bearing which means they had an issue with this washer. The howling noise you are hearing is the bearing and will need the new designed triple seal and bearing kit. This should be covered under your warranty, I believe it is 5 years. The numbers for the service flashes are TDL-0048A-B. Call Maytag and inquire about these service flashes, these should be covered. Catriver.

My Maytag Performa was making the loud squealing noise. I changed out the water pump/bearing, took care of the problem.
Putting a new belt on just help burn up the bearing (they needed replacing) and probably ruined the new belt. Probably seized the water pump bearing and the belt jumped and broke the motor pully. A washing machine motor is very strong, when that h20 pump bearing seized (or possibly some bearings jamed up) the motor kept on turning that belt and the plastic pully gave in. You'll need to replace that also. If the h20 pumb bearing is turning freely, likely the bearings jammed up but or now loose. That bearing should be tight, no slack or play in it. You can probably wobble the pully on it all around while turning it. The slightest slack is too much.

You probably have burning belt LOL.
Can you turn the agitator by hand at all?
If no, look for anything that may have gotten wedged under the agitator causing it to lock up.
If you can turn it a little. you most likely have a worn stretched belt or tensioner spring.
The only solution for that is to replace the belt or tensioner spring.

SOURCE: GE washer not agitating
when you pulled up agitator was the splined shaft moving back and forth ? If so replace the insert in the agitator. If not the problem is in the transmission .
