Def needs a pully to add tension in order to spin. reconnect adn watch what it does. where does noise appear to come from??? sometimes the lower most "helix" strips out on machine and sounds as if theres amototr boat in you machine.Its the bottom most item on the centraal shaft of the transmission held o by a 1/2 bolt. if either that or the pulley above it strip it wont dissengage the brake assy and will "motor boat" with no action from transmission

Maytag Performa PAV2300AWW screaching noise, belt problem, pulley broke


My Maytag Performa was making the loud squealing noise. I changed out the water pump/bearing, took care of the problem.
Putting a new belt on just help burn up the bearing (they needed replacing) and probably ruined the new belt. Probably seized the water pump bearing and the belt jumped and broke the motor pully. A washing machine motor is very strong, when that h20 pump bearing seized (or possibly some bearings jamed up) the motor kept on turning that belt and the plastic pully gave in. You'll need to replace that also. If the h20 pumb bearing is turning freely, likely the bearings jammed up but or now loose. That bearing should be tight, no slack or play in it. You can probably wobble the pully on it all around while turning it. The slightest slack is too much.

Maytag SAV2555 will not spin


it does( withiut looking at it myself), sound like the pulley/helix are just slipping past eachother and not engaging one anoher, does the sloped side of the pulley(wehre it meshes with the helix appear to be rounded over???) thats really the only reason i could see to replace the pulley.. for get trying oto spin the belt can you grab hold of the p[uley and try spinning it directly????. rfeason i askl is that in order to replace the pulley, youll need to rease th springs around the bottom of tub, and remove the entire unit from the cabinet, after removing unit, turn unit upside down, you need to remove the motor,, then unbolt the 3 white legs form the outer tub, and remove the 3 brake pads bolted to underneath uint with 3/8 nuts, the stansion then will lifht up giving you room to remove the pulley. awful alot of work if not needed,

Maytag washer sav2555


the pulley will not remove very easily , it wold require removine the milk stool, motor and some other parts, not the easiest hing to do especially if not needed, the helix you removed, take a look at it , the sloped ends of it should create a pretty sharp angle, then a 90degree drop off, the slopes om the pulley should be the same, they should not apppear to be rounded off,helix is probly 10 bucks if needed and if its at the helix that you see the "slipping" and "clicking noise, before condeming the tranny i would start with tthe helix, if after re-installing it it still clicks up and over pully perhaps try adding another spacer under the bolt before tightening. the idea behind the pulley and helix is that depending on rotation of the transissiion, the helix "pushes against" the pulley adn spreads the brake plate, releasing the brake allowing the tub tospin freely

The water pump may be going bad...Yes it probably is a bearing. Take the belt loose and try turning each pully until you find one that makes noise or is hard to turn. Pump and motor should both spin very easily with out noise.
