The water pump can begin to lose its shiney steel retainer which digs into its housing and slows or stops the belt.

The belt is not doing it's job. It could be that the belt is worn, if so a replacement can be bought from a Maytag dealer. It is also possible that the belt is just not under the proper tension. Maytag motors are mounted in a slide, and tension is applied by a spring. if the grease in the slide gets old and hard, the slide will stick making for a loose belt. To access, you'll need to remove part of the cabinet. Pop the top loose at the front, remove two screws at the top of the front panel, and release the clips at the bottom to remove the front panel. Free up the slide with some light motor oil and re-assemble.

My washer''s agitator spins but not the drum during spin cycle.


If you see the agitator moving, but not the tub..I guess, you have a defective transmission..this is tough without knowing a little more info.

My Maytag Ensignia washer is not spinning well. It bangs side to side with even the smallest loads. It seems like something is loose. Is this something I can fix myself or do I need a repair mans help....


Try leveling the washer... If the washer is level, then don't wrap the clothes around the agitator...drop the clothes straight in, on top of each other evenly around the agitator. The Ensignia washer has a Dual action agitator... That means the clothes roll over them selves, instead of moving side to side, as with a traditional agitator. wrapping the clothes around the agitator will cause the load to be un balanced and then cause the "banging" noise... this should take care of the problem...

Maytag Washer never stops running, goes from 1 cycle to the next


The timer is not stopping the agitate mode. And the timer is suppose to have its own off setting at the end of cycles. Suspect pretty strongly that the timer is at fault. Cant say for sure without looking at a wire diagram and eliminating any other controls.

If this helps you please rate me as high as possible.
If it doesn't help you please rediscribe your problem in more detail to help me understand, post back and I will follow up.

Maytag Frontloader (Perf series) brand new Agitator off axis


Okay! We just fixed this problem on our washer. First, be safe and be sure that the electrical cord is unplugged. Then you want to take the lid panel off of your washer. Then you'll feel around under the base of the agitator/washer basket. You should notice that its feet sit inside huge springs which are fixed to the base of the machine unit. Determine whether any of your basket feet are disloged from their spring and re-insert. Make sure the fit is good or else you might have the same problem again. After you reassemble, plug in the machine and try a test spin without any clothes. Then try with a smallish load.

Hopefully this helps.
