Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Likely a burned belt. Tilt machine back and belts are underneath machine. Always replace them as a set. At right front is pump pulley. Turn it by hand to be sure it's not bound up.
Secondly run hand up the inner tub to the top until you find a finger wide space at the top of the tub between the tub and the upper tub cover. Stick your fingers as far into that space as possible and run them 360 degrees all the way around the top of the inner tub. This checks for clothing that may have gone over the top of the tub and gotten caught there. This occurrence and something caught in the pump can burn belts.
Lastly, if the first two tests don't reveal a problem, replace both belts and test the machine again with agitate and spin to see if belt is overheated again. If not, you have fixed problem. If so, you likely have a problem beyond your abilities and the value of the machine.
