    This top loading Maytag, Model LAT9634AAE, uses motor with a double-belt pulley, one for the pump, the other for the transmission.

    I removed the front cover and went through a wash/rinse/spin cycle. Wash was fine, but the spin was intermittent with much unbalance and inability of the of the drum to achieve anything near full speed. Smoke emerged from under the motor and I unplugged the machine. The motor pulley was hot. After it cooled, I attached only the pump belt and it worked well. I then attached only the drum belt, and the bad spin/smoke occurred again.

    I assume that the problem is with the transmission and I need to replace it.

    If you agree, I need to know how I remove the agitator and the steps I need to take to replace the transmission and seal.

You have a bad bearing here that is keeping the tub from spinning freely or something is dragging the basket (doubtful). Pulley should turn freely by hand when you turn it so drum spins if all is fine, which it obviously is not.

    You need special tools to take this apart for repair; they cannot be rented, so a service call may be worth it.

Hi there,

Well problem must be in the spin bearing or basket drive may be worn or seized. These components allow the inner tub to spin freely inside the outer tub. When this is the problem, you usually hear a loud sound during the spin cycle. Further you may check out the motor coupler, may be broken. Washers use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. You may need to replace it. Post comments for further help or information.........

Good Luck!!

Thanks

If this sound starts slow and gets faster till its helicopter sounding you probly have a verry worn spot on the drive belt when that spot goes around the pully it will thump the faster ti spins the more frequent the sound If you tilt the washer back you should be able to see the belt to examine it if this the problem

Cloths are still very wet after spin cycle


This sounds like a belt issue. A belt will become weak and stretch or glaze over time. Both of these conditions will cause a slow spin.
The belts are located on the bottom and are relatively easy to replace. Go to: www.repairclinic.com for info on removal and installation. You can even order a new belt from them.

Washer not spinning


Sounds like the brake liner could be broken. When the machine starts to spin, the motor turns in the opposite direction to the wash cycle and causes the bowl to lift off the brake liner and the bowl then spins freely. Either the riser cam is worn/broken or the brake liner is broken. This is quite involved and you may have to call in a tech.

Maytag Model # LAT9635AAE


Check to see if it is a pump problem or a transmission problem. First remove both belts see if all the pullys turn freely. if the pump has a tight feel check inside pump for a item jammed in it.look for transmission oil on floor or belts if oil is present transmmision if probably going.ALSO check at the top of the tubs for anything stuk in between tubs.
