Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV9750A Top Load Washer
When my wife was washing clothes, strange noises started and you could smell burning. i thought wash load was off balance or there was some clothes that somehow got under the agitator. pulled agitator off. nothing was wrong. looked at belt - it was ok, but one of the pulleys (plastic) for the belt was melting. do you think the shaft is bad or any suggestions on the cause? thanks in advance jim
Whatever the pulley is attached to has seized. Either the water pump or tub drive, or something else has stopped spinning. The belt continued to run because the motor kept pulling it, and the friction from the belt melted the plastic pulley. Hopefully its the water pump, as its the most inexpensive. You should change the belt along with this fix, it has also got hot and probable will not last as long as it should.
