Probably needs a new pump. The bearing separate in them. Tip the washer back and remove the belt(no tools needed. Try to turn the pump. To replace the pump (if that is it) Take 3, 3/8ths bolts out and disconnect the 2 hoses. Nothing to it. Manuals and more here

    Thanks. Tip: spend some money and get your machine repaired. You do not want the nightmares that are with these new washers that require tiny amounts of soap an frequently go bonkers when you overdose them with soap suds; this cost tons of money to repair also. Go ahead and spend the money on repairing your washer.

you need to remove the agitator and check the bolts that hold the trunion to the shaft and make sure they are not broken.if one is just replace them make sure that the bracket is in the flat key way on the tub hope fully the tub seal is still good.

lift the lid up and down,if you don't hear any clicking the lid switch broke,if that's not it check the motor coupling,take the two clips off that hold the pump in place,remove the two screws and the two clips that hold the motor in place and the coupling is on the back of the motor,if the washer is dead it's the lid switch,if it makes a grinding noise but doesn't move then it could be the coupling,let me know how you make out

Leaking washer


This is going to be the tub seal. Take the front off and check to see if the water is leaking right where the tub and the transmission meet and if so the seal is leaking. This also makes the washer noisy. This page should help http://appliance-repair-it.com/Maytag-tub-seal.html
