Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Hi. I will list a few check points to cover before I render my solution to fix the issue.
1. Make sure the load is balanced.
2. Check the belt for slippage
3. Check the drain outlet in the wall or floor for clogs.
4. Check the tub seal for a binded stated.(Page 7-3 in the manual provided)
5. Check the brake assembly for faults(partially engaged or stuck in the brake position)-(Page 7-13)
6. Check for any obstructions between the tubs(inner and outer)-(page 5-5)
7. Check the thrust bearings for proper adjustments.(Page 7-4)
8. Check the drain pump for a broken impeller.(Page 5-4)
9. Preform the torque test(On page 7-12 in the manual provided)
Inspect all that I have listed above and let me know the results. The service manual link is below. There are several causes for this situation. This is why i recommend to preform all test to isolate the culprit. These procedures will prevent you from purchasing a part you don't need. I suspect that the brakes are hung or the transmission is locked. It could also be worn thrust bearings, as well.

It could be something as simple as a broken belt, but also a more expensive fix like the transmission.
There is a safety switch on the inside of your machine, right close to the upper rim of the tub. If you will look at your lid, you will see, usually, a small piece of plastic that fits in a slot when you close the lid. (Where the plastic pushes down on the switch.) It activates your washer. With the lid up, find the slot, and insert something non-metallic into the slot and push down. Hold it down. I used a pencil. Make sure that the machine is in the spin cycle. If it starts pumping water out and goes into the spin cycle, then this switch is your problem. It is very easy to change out. Sorry the instructions aren't any better. Good Luck
