Question about Washing Machines
Only wash mode it will not move! Everything Elsa works fine!
I 'm pretty sure I've heard this before and that it is the end of the road for the Maytag motor. Sorry it isn't more positive...I've seen you tube videos about this problem before when ~I was looking for a friend. She did actually manage to buy one second hand on ebay to replace her old one. Maybe you tube or ebay can be of help and you could google 'Shipley's' to get a very reasonable and competitive quote for delivery in case the distance is a long way.
Hope that's useful

SOURCE: Drum is not moving
It sounds like the drum drive is broken ... could be a belt at the back of the machine or it could be gear driven ... most likley a belt... take off cover on back of machine to see if the belt is broken and replace if necessary. Also could be pump but that is probably the last thing to go wrong pumps rarely ever fail.

The rubber smell is the belt from the motor to the tub. The grinding sound is/was the tension pulley that keeps the belt tight. The bearing on the pulley probably went out and now the belt is burning because of the friction of sliding around the pulley. The belt and the pulley need to be replaced. If you have the room, turn off and disconnect the hoses. Unplug the electrical cord from the wall outlet. Remove the drain hose and any water in the tub. Carefully tip the washer over backwards, DO DROP IT!!! Now you should be able to see the motor, tub, tension pulley, and belt. With a basic 3/8' drive socket set, probably metric, and a couple of screw drivers you should be able to remove the belt and the pulley. Take the belt, pulley, and model numbers to an applicance parts store and buy replacements.
I only suggest this because I hate paying labor. If you are not machanically inclined then you are going to have to pay the labor.

I think the belt has come off or has been damaged.
To open the machine slide out the machine. On the back panel lower 1/3 you will see a plastic panel remove the screws and the panel will come away. Inside you will see the belt. I suspect you will need to reattach the belt of remove it and buy a replacement.

Its probably you stator plate and rotor. But you need special tools for this repair. There a spring that is under 200 pounds of pressure and if you take the screws off that hold the plate its going to fly into you face if your dont use the special tools to depress the spring. Is it more of a clanking kinda of noise? DOes it olnly happen with heavy loads? Try this out. Fill the washer with water only. and get it into a wash cycle with water only. If there is no noise then put in like a load of towels. A heavy load. Now if you hear the noise now then its for sure you stator plate and rotor..hope this helps, but like i said you need those special tools to do this repair or injury can result from the spring part.

sounds like a bearing... although it could be the water pump... water pump is an easy fix... bearing is not an easy fix... take the belt off the bottom of the pump (under the machine) and see if it spins freely by turning it w/ your hand... or if it seems really stiff... if it looks good then it's def. your bearing...
