HELLO THERE
If it doesn't pump water out or spin, check to see if the motor is running, then proceed as follows: If the motor is running, your washer probably has a frozen pump pulley or a broken pump belt. To check the pulley, remove the pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen or stiff--replace it. If the pump belt is broken or looks quite worn, replace it--but be sure to check the pump pulley before you change the belt. If the motor isn't running, the lid switch may be defective. If so, the washing machine can't spin and may not function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

    I have this same issue and my pump was frozen/locked up, my husband was able to work on the pump and got it unlocked but I am still having issues. Once the pump freezes or locks up does it just have to be replaced?

    no if you are abole to remove the pump a lot of times you will be able to dissassemble it and get it cleaned out and free it up it just takes a little bit of doing really not to hard just take your time and be careful not to pry things to hard so you do not break parts you may need to get a new gasket and mayby a new seal but that should be about it ok
    Hope this helps let me know if you need any more assistance ok
    Best regards MIke

Maytag Performa model mtw5740tq0: won't fill up with water


There is an exit hose behind your washer, it has to be maintained a particular height (approx 30inches from ground) before it goes into the standpipe in the wall. The gap in the pipe should not be a tight fit. Another thing that could have occurred is that one of the pipes underneath the washer has come loose; you just have to check these things out. But plug off the mains socket first!

Washer will spin but won't drain automatically


are you sure it spins? usually something is in the pump like a sock. You could remove the front and take the hose off the pump to see if its clear. It also sounds like it could be the lid switch. if you have to close it make sure you hear a clicking noise from the lid switch.

Burned belt?


Yes, smell like your belt.. if there is water in tub, try to get it out... (wet vac)... slide your washer out and tilt it back so you can see under... there should be 2 belts.. 1 for gear and 1 for water drain pump... and you can check Sears.com for parts.. good luck...

Does not spin


Possible your outlet filter is blocked. This requires cleaning depending on your usage. Clean this out and refit. Good luck. Plug off the wall first.
