Could be a "clutch" that is not working right. spin should remove most of water from clothes and ALL water from the tub, but if there's a clogged filter at the pump, remove and clean it, or have a service man who can get beneath the tub chassis clean it. Sounds like you need a service agent to come and fix your Maytag.

    OK, Can you eplain that in a little more detail? What to check on the clutch and possibly how to access it. Thx

  • john mabry Oct 08, 2010

    The clutch is UNDER the tub, located within the motor area. It can be accessed by getting the machine onto a technician's bench, lifted onto a couple of sturdy pallets, or turned on its side. The problem lies in "testing" the clutch and for that you should consult a manual. Go to the manufacturer's website with your model# and serial# and purchase a repair manual. Many offer PDF sections that show schematics of electronics, as well as views of the mechanical chassis. Everyone should have a repair manual for their washer or dryer, dishwasher, etc. $25?

What causes the water not to spin out of the clothes?


Hi, it means that the machine is not spinning fast enough and pumping the water away. If its not spinning enough then you have to get the machine looked at as its not clicking on in the cycle for it to spin fast enough. You also have to have it set to wash cycle that has a fast spin. If it is spinning fast then you have to look at the pump to make sure its pumping the water away.

My maytag washer does not spin fast enough to get the water out of the clothes. Please advise


Randall, the high speed spin failure can be caused by a number of issues. I would suggest starting the machine without any clothes in it. Once it has filled, make sure the door lock light is on and that the door is, in fact, locked. If the light is not on, or if the door is not actually locked, either the door lock assembly or the control panel is at fault.

If the light is on and the door is locked, stop the wash cycle and start a drain and spin cycle to see if all of the water is pumped out of the drum. All water should be pumped out within 10-15 seconds. If excess water is in the drum, the high speed spin will not start.

ITS POSSABLE ITS NOT PUMPING FAST ENOUGH. CHECK THE DRAIN HOSE AND MAKE SURE IT HAS NO KINK. IF THATS OK IT MAY HAVE A BUILDUP OF SOAP. RUN A EMPTY CYCLE WITH NO SOAP. IF THAT DONT WORK YOU NEED A REPIARMAN TO CLEAN OR REPLACE THE PUMP.

Maytag model LA- 510 washer. Not spinning fast enough, Clothes come out too wet and water sometimes left in bottom of drum. Belts were changed. No help. Also, machine makes a large ''clunk'' sound at end...


the cluncking sound is not a brake system since there are no brakes, but the stabilizer of the drum. as when it stops turning the whole weight of the drum 'hangs' on the stabilizers. That might also be the problem with not spinning fast enough, although I think that its not spinning fast enough because there's too much water inside. I would check the drain hose and drain filter, either one of these two are clogged up, and therefor not letting the water out.
hope you'll find the problem soon.
friendly greetings............Gilbert.

Can't get washer to finish spin cycle


I'm not familiar with this washer, but if there is water in the drum when it comes to the spin cycle chances are that it won't spin. The likely cause of water left in the drum would be that it is not emptying fast enough, so you might check the pump for a blockage, or if there is a filter check that for some obstruction like fluff, coins, or small items of clothing which can sometimes get drawn through from the drum.
