Maytag won't spin

My Maytag Washer Model MAV5920EWW won't sping during any cycles.
It does try, but a loud banging noise occurs then it immediately stops.

Is this a brake issue?

Machine is 2 years old.

Thanks for your help.

I think the problem may be it is clogged up with lint and stuff or possibly a bad transmission.

To see if it is clogged you need to open the top by using a butter knife to release the 2 latches, remove the agitator and drum. If you see lots of lint or soap scum inside the plastic liner you need to remove that and then re assemble.

If the agitator will turn during the wash but not during the spin (after you clean it out) it likely is a bad transmission. (Tilt the machine up and set a paint can or similar size object under the front and turn the belt either way to verify from under the washer ... but first unplug the washer so it will not start on you and take a finger off).

Good Luck.

Loud banging noise during rinse


Most noises from a washing machine occur during the rinse or 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.This will solve your problem.

Maytag Neptune front load washer model MAH3000AW, load during spin cycle


YOU MEAN LOUD DURING SPIN CYCLE? IF THAT SO, WHAT KIND OF NOISE? BANGING NOISE MEANS YOU HAVE UNBALANCED LOAD OR ONE OF THE SUSPENSION IS BAD OR FELL OFF. GRINDING NOISE MEANS YOU HAVE A BAD TUB BEARING, TO REPLACE THAT, YOU HAVE TO REPLACE THE WHOLE REAR TUB ASSEMBLY, VERY COSTLY. MEANS YOU PROBABLY BE BUYING A NEW WASHER.

chances are you had a blockage in the pump and it tried to spin with the water still in the drum. check the bottom hose and filter for blockages so it does not occur again.
