Question about Maytag Washing Machines
Hi this sounds like a 2 belt top Loader Maytag. You did not provide a model number but given the preceeding assumption you have the pump belt way to tight so the motor pulley is pulled closer to the large tub drive pulley and is slipping more than it should. Look where the pump was mounted before you changed it. Generally It should not be more than 1/8 " from the original location. Most of the time it is the exact same spot. Move the pump closer to the motor and its' originally installed position. Check the spin each time you move the pump. closer to the motor. It is ok for the pump belt to appear slightly loose but not fall off the pulley. If you still have the same problem after doing the above please respond with the model number so we can get your washer back in service.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.

If this is a standard Maytag washer with a drive belt and pump belt and the machine is pumping out the water,the drive belt may need replacing because it is too loose and worn.
If the drive belt is OK,then the spin bearing on the transmission shaft needs replacing.
This is not an easy repair,but I can walk you through the steps.
Check the belt issue first and let me know what you find.

Have u checked to see if it is going into the spin cycle? best thing to do is remove the front cover and run your machine either that or run a jumper wire to your lid switch and jump the switch so you can see if your unit is spinning. write me back with the results of you checking if the machine is spinning
