My maytag atlantis won't spin just makes noise

i have a maytag washer that won't spin, it just makes noise. the last time this happened, i found the belt on the floor under the washer. i replaced it and it'd been working fine until about last week. now it's doing the same thing, but the belt is still on the pulley's. i can spin the tub, and i can turn the belt and move the pulley's.
can you please help me with this problem, my kids cloths need to be washed.

Maytag Atlantis washer. Washer makes noise that approaches grinding, and the agitator doesn't spin. Rather, isn't connected to the motor. Spins semi-freely by hand, with a rough motion and noise

Your unit is gear driven and is contained in a mechanism enclosure.The roughness your feeling when turning it are the worn-out gears.One cause is it might have ran out or dried out of gear lubricant.The motor drives a belt to run the gears so the motors are running fine.Your gear box is the problem.

My MayTag Atlantis washer will not spin or drain the water out, when it gets to the rinse cycle or spin cycle , it just makes a buzzing or clicking noise.

The brake mechanism is not releasing properly. The noise your hearing is the motor trying to move but can't. Do not continue to operate the washer or you will burn out the expensive replacement. See instructions for my other solutions.

Shreiking spin in rinse cycle

Your pump is probably what's causing the noise . Usually the bearing starting to go out , causing the pump to freeze up , begins with this noise .

In spin cycle machine makes squeaky noise.

Your bearings could be going out, causing excess stress on the belt. Take the back off of the washer and check the belt tension. If there IS something stuck back there, you'll be able to see it.
