No, the washer is 14 years old, so I decided to just buy a new one. If it is cheap to fix, I would like to repair it and give it to some charity

the brake it the drum directly above the transmission pulley it is not intergrated into the trans.
in my almost 30 years of repairs in that old and very reliable machine i would find where a article of clothing and floated over the inner tub and has wedged itsefl between the inner and outer tub, their is enough clerance between the tub and tub cover where you could get finger into it and run it around the tub and feel if a piece of clothing is caught. if that isnt the problem then the tub bearing is ceased up and would require repalcing it and the tub seal

Spa went over set temperature with loc message


How far over the set temperature did the hot tub go?

A hot tub may sometimes exceed the set temperature slightly especially if it's well insulated and has been on a long filtration cycle.

'Loc' usually means that the keyad is locked or partially locked. Check your quick reference guide and it will tell you how to remove the keypad lock.

Regards,
Ian.

Stops spinning during the spin cycle sometimes. I can open the lid, move the tub a little, close the lid, and sometimes it will restart. Recently, if it stops and I try to move the tub, it feels like its...


well the tub is not supposed to move cause it has brakes on the bottom of tub,that means your brakes are fine, could be a problem in your clutch area,mine sheared off the bottom of the basket drive tube which broke the 2 little fingers on the clutch arm falling off the tube (thus no spin) also check your motor coupling which is between the motor and tranny, also your lid switch could be bad

Machine knocks and walks when spinning a small load


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the spin cycle. If you hear loud thumping during the spin, the load of clothes may have become unbalanced. Stop the washer and redistribute the clothes, then re-start it. Repeat these steps if necessary.
-----------------------
The problem is the brake. The odd time what happens is moisture gets on thebrake rotor and the squealing is heard when the brake stator is applied to stop the tub from spinning. This moisture, may drip down from the tub onto the brake rotor which could indicate a leaky tub seal. If you can't see any dripping when you fill the tub with water, don't worry about the tub seal. Many times than not the brake is just going sour on it's own.
Sometimes you can fix the squealing by cleaning the rotor and stator with a light sandpaper, such as emery/sand cloth. If that doesn't work you will need to replace the brake stator and rotor. If you need to replace them replace both parts together, don't just change the stator without also replacing the rotor, or vice versa. And here's a bonus tip: the brake spring exerts 200 pounds of force. If you try to remove the six 5/16" screws without using this brake removal tool, serious injury can/could happen!! The splined part in the middle of the brake needs to be greased really good before putting the brake back on!

The drive/motor pulley on these washers is plastic. It can wear and start to slip on the drive belt, might be best to replace the belt at the same time if you find a worn/ground up motor pulley. The motor pulley presses onto the motor shaft, cutting or breaking the old one is common when changing it.
---------------
noises also comes from bad wheel bearing would make.]
If the tub seal lets go water will weep into the tub bearing. This will rust the basket shaft and normally wreck the tub bearing. Once the bearings starts to get worn enough it usually gets very noisy. The tub bearing is pressed onto the outer back half of the tub shell assembly. Normally need to replace the inner basket/shaft assembly  and the outer shell with the tub bearing. 
Sometimes the inner basket support will crack, this can give an clicking or banging noise as well.

**Take the front cover off and you will find brake pad pieces in the bottom.
Now some say you have to pull the center out to replace the pads...I don't. Here's how I do it..
Remove old screws were brake pads use to be and loose them! Kits comes with new screws that you must use. The transmission will turn free without the brake pads. You will need a 3/8 stubby ratchet. Insert 0ne pad in place toward the front and line up holes with front set of holes in mounting plate. NOW....spin trans around until the pad is near the back set of mounting holes. I use an Allen key to align holes and put rear screws in. Once you get the back one in the 2 front ones are easy. Don't forget to bring a new belt with you!!!!!!!!!!!!
NOTE:.....You must coat the new brake pads with a little silicone grease**

It won't drain If your washer won't drain, check these:

It spins, but doesn't pump
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns
It spins, but doesn't pump If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the hoses from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator, top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It doesn't spin or pump If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it.

It pumps, but the water returns If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

  • If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.


  • If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

This problem can be attributed to any one of the following items:

1. Worn Clutch/Brake assembly.
2. Gearcase (transmission) starting to go bad.
3. Basket Drive assembly worn or loose.

The more common problem is a worn clutch assembly, but you can't always be sure. If the gearcase fails, a common tell tale sign is a light colored oil leaking from it. You will notice puddles under the washer and/or spray pattern marks along the interior walls of the casing. Sometimes these two problems are interrelated as oil leaking from the gearcase can cause the clutch or brake to slip.

The following link explains how to replace the gearcase assembly:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r699497-replacing_gearcase

I'm not saying you have a bad gearcase at this point, but include this link because it gives information on how to remove the clutch/brake assembly. If you go to searspartdirect.com and type in your model number as "110.24902200" there are some very helpful drawings under the "Brake/Clutch/Gearcase/Motor/Pump" heading. The gearcase is listed as item 9, the entire clutch/brake assembly is listed as item 5. The Basket Drive is listed as item 1.

This problem can often be hard to diagnose as any one of these components mentioned can cause a slow spin problem. I would recommend you remove the outer casing and do a visual inspection of the gearcase and clutch assembly (under the wash tub), first. Let me know what you find. I hope this gives you some guidance.

PS A basket drive failure will require you to remove the wash tub to replace. Since the basket drive penetrates through the bottom of the wash tub, it is recommended that you also replace the wash tub seal. Let me know what your preliminary findings are before we touch on this topic.

This problem is normally attributed to a combination of two things: A worn out snubber ring, and a worn brake assembly.

The snubber ring assembly is a white teflon ring that sits under the wash tub at the base (called the milk stool, because it looks like an upside down milk stool).  The entire wash tub assembly will rest on the snubber as it helps get rid of vibration while the tub agitates and spins.  When the snubber starts to wear down, you will notice an increase in tub vibration during the spin cycle and it will sometimes begin to squeak. NOTE: YOU CANNOT OIL THE SNUBBER! DOING SO CAN CAUSE MORE DAMAGE.

The brake assembly is mounted between the pulley wheel and transmission under the washer.  As the brake assembly ages, the pad (which is mounted along the rim of a metal disc) begins to glaze over.  As it glazes, it will also squeak and cause the sudden "slamming" to a stop.  The glazing, coupled with humidity in the air can make this condition worse.

Both problems occur normally with this model washer and can be attributed to normal wear and tear.  I recommend replacing the brake assembly and snubber at the same time.  You will need, however, a special Maytag brake removal tool and spring removal tool if you decide to attempt this repair yourself (it is possible to accomplish this without the aid of a repairman).  Let me know if you need further assistance.  CAUTION: THERE IS A 200 LB COMPRESSED SPRING UNDER THE BRAKE HOUSING.  ATTEMPTING TO REMOVE THE COVER WITHOUT THE BRAKE REMOVAL TOOL CAN BE DANGEROUS.
