Sounds like a problem in the gear case. This would be a transmision replacement.

Something locked up on the transmission then the drive belt broke. Put on a new belt and try a spin cycle, if it works but it won't agitate then the trans will need replaced.

SOURCE: Tub does not spin but agitates

Sounds like the door switch is either loose or faulty. The door switch keeps the tub from spinning with door/lid open.

Will not spin on spin cycle


That is a single belt driven washer built by maytag. Check the lid switch for propah operation. If it is fine tip the washer back do an inspection of the beltthemobilian_2528.jpg
Check the pump for tightness sometimes they lock up or get something in em. If that is fine turn the main drive pulley and see if it releases the brake and lets the drum turn easily. One direction it locks the tub and agitates and the other direction is pumps out the water and spins.

Gas smell during cooking cycle - Magic Chef oven


turn off the stove and call the gas company. They will come out for free and check things out. It's dangerous to be there when you're smelling gas. If you want to look into it yourself, use a soapy solution in a spray bottle and spray the gas valve and the gas line all the way from the valve to where it connects into the stove.

I have a GE Profile Prodigy top load washing machine. Sometimes the spin cycle does not spin, sometimes it spins. It makes a clicking noise during gentle cycle


The gears maybe going out. Sometimes it is able to engage in the other direction which the spin, sometimes not. Washing machine have complex gears that in one way agitator works, and the other the gear locks to turn the whole tub. The clicking noise is probably the locking mechanism in the gears that has caused the whole intermittent problem.

Only spin cycle


Check the lid switch, it only locks out the spin cycle.
