Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Posted by Anonymous on
If the fault is not emptying the water out check the pump & also hoses for blockages. If the washer is pumping all the water out but not spinning fast enough, check belt tension & clutch.
If you have a drip dry switch check that it is turned off.

SOURCE: burned belt?
Yes, smell like your belt.. if there is water in tub, try to get it out... (wet vac)... slide your washer out and tilt it back so you can see under... there should be 2 belts.. 1 for gear and 1 for water drain pump... and you can check Sears.com for parts.. good luck...

Pump may no be engaged, broken belt or clogged pump or defective pump. Easiest way to tell is to prop the unit up but keep it level. Put a mirror on floor under pump area, inspect belt to make sure its not broken. Inspect pump many are clear plastic so you can see any blockages. If looks OK, then put unit through wash cycle. Watch as it gets to the end of the wash cycle (good flashlight helps to direct the light where you need it) to see if belt is spinning and if pump is actually turning etc. I usually put a piece of 4 x 4 front to back under 2 feet on each side. Just make sure not to let tf slip off and don't put hands etc, under while its running.

I presume that you read your manual on that problem. I have a Maytag. So far mine is not quiet so I cannot help you with that area but if your washing machine is not spinning or agitating if you are still under warranty FIRST CALL the manufacturer. That way you will not void your warranty. If it isn't under warranty, CALL them anyway. The help line knows a lot about those problems. Now on my old one - not one of the new ones - I had a warranty on appliances. Washer was included. They told me that the belt was not turning something in the motor. It was either worn or broken. Either way don't you try to fix it. Unless you are a machine repair person - do not try to get to it. You cannot imagine how many little pieces were included in that motor. Even a motor scheme sheet for your machine will not be worth your time. They did fix mine. I just gave you the speech the repair person gave me. The house call was not very much. That was back some years so -25 - 50 dollars for another 10 years of usage was good. I read the instructions to everything. That is just my inquisitive nature. However, that may be a headache to you. So get your manual out and go to the troubleshooting section. If you don't see an answer, look on your washing machine and get the model AND serial number. MAYTAG used to have that information on the lid or door somewhere. It is very hard to use even with a magnifying glass. Choose a time you are in a good mood. If you cannot find it, call the store where you purchased it. They can give you all of that information and where to call. Or they can tell you your warranty information and some of the reasons it might be happening. Last, go ahead and dip that water out of the machine tub. That will be way more water than you anticipated. If you haven't, remember you are working with water and electricity. Put on your boots - just because it is a messy job. Now, before you start UNPLUG EVERYTHING. Last, if you have an older model, it might take a while to get parts. Be prepared to do a little light sink sudsing and wearing clothing more than once (smiling.) More than likely this is a Maytag repair problem. If you cannot find your warranty information, when you call the retailer, they have it. If you bought it at Home Depot or Lowes they will have ALL of your information. Isn't technology wonderful??

I would agree with Mike above that the lid switch needs to be looked at. With the lid switch bad the timer thinks that the lid is up and they are designed to stop until you put the lid back down. Sometimes you can put a zip tie around the switch to hold it together, because what usually happens is the glue holding the switch together gets dissolved from the soap and water and the switch gets pushed apart. The zip tie is an in-expensive way to repair your switch. Hope this helps.
