If the motor has a transmission, it could be stuck in 1st gear. I think the agitator running is normal.

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.

The belt turn the pulley, but the height of the pulley is worn out so it didn't push up a mechanism to release the brake and to engage with the clutch to make the spin.
You have to takethe shaft out to study how it works then it makes sense on what I 'm talking.
The pulley cost only $11 but it is a major laboring exercise. It is a good learning to have hands on to this problem. Good luck on replacing the pulley.

SOURCE: washer wont run spin cycle model 417

Hi,
The reason for your washing machine not to spin would be of a faulty motor coupling.

If the washer will fill and drain, but won't agitate or spin, you may have a broken motor coupling. The noise of the motor engaging, lack of agitation and ability to still drain are the usual symptoms. This is a common fail item with this model washer through normal wear and tear. Newer versions of the coupler are more resilient and resist breaking

The motor coupling is located between the drive motor and the transmission and takes the place of a drive belt. They do wear out and can break. The replacement part number is included in the link I provided and is an improved upgraded coupling that is more resilient. It should last longer. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

A replacement coupler can be purchased on line at appliancepartspros.com for about $11. Just use the part number in the link and "Search by Part Number" for your search criteria.

Thank you for contacting Fixya.com

SOURCE: Maytag washer squeaks when spin cycle stops

We have a Maytag Performa G3300 that we bought on 8/13/2001. It still works great, but on 2/25/10 it stopped heating. We found that by removing the front panel and vacuuming the accumulated lint on the inside of the dryer and the door, the problem was resolved. There were no parts to replace, just vacuuming.

How to tighten the belt of Maytag washer model SAV365AAWW?


Depends how good you are with disassembly. It's not that difficult and you need to shut off the water and unplug the machine. The front needs to be removed and on the bottom is where the belts are. Loosening the pump retention screws and pulling the pump towards you while you tighten at least 1 not to hold the tension. Then tighten the other screws on the pump and reverse disassembly order. Too tight on the belt will burn your pump up and of course too loose will allow them to slip. I would look and see why the belts are slipping. Water leaks, worn out? For the proper tension, on the center of the belts, you should be able to press your index finger on it and it will push in about 1/2". Good luck

Washer will not drain on spin cycle, water stays in machine


you might have a broken pump belt go to www.repairclinic.com enter model number and scroll down to the red 100 click it and start looking for the pump part number 1480330. You'll have to lean this thing back far enough to see if it is your belt or maybe even go through the back of it.

Maytag toploader model pav2300WW


Do you hear the motor activate during the expected spin cycle? If yes, then there might be a gearbox or clutch assembly issue. If not, it might be as simple as the safety switch not being engaged as the rest of the cycles might operate properly even if the safety switch is not engaged.

If the washer totally shuts down when the spin cycle begins, look at the safety switch circuit.
