The drive motor which spins the drum is connected to the drum by a rubber belt. Sounds like the belt is burned through. Make sure you can spin the inside tub by hand to verify that the tub can turn freely before you replace the belt. The hum is from the drive motor just spinning freely.

you could look for a build up of muck- old soap powder etc around the main door rubber, there are places where the muck will collect. put your fingers right inside the door rubber as there are gaps that are hidden . this muck builds up and causes a horrible smell

My maytag washer is throwing off a musty stentch. What should I do about this? It is stinking up my laundry room and the entrance to my condo.


There is a soap buildup underneath your agitator. Look for a screw on the outside of your agitator just above the lower large part with the agitatotr blades. Memory is fading but it is either a 5/16 or 1/4 ince socket that will be required to remove the screw. Once the screw is removed simply lift the agitator out then begin cleaning the tub with PLASTIC bladed putty knife. As for the agitator use something like Mr Muscle or Eliminate to clean the botttom and inside of the agitator itself. (any product that will remove soap or calcium buildup) \You can also use those same products to clean what is still on the top face of the inside bottom of your wash tub. Once you finish cleaning simply align the splines on the agitator and re-install the screw. You will NOT damage your machine running it empty. Make sure you run at least a full rinse cycle before washing clothes again as there will be some residue that will need to be washed out of your machine. Once you install the agitator push the tub stiffly in 90 deg quadrants and look at the top of your wash tub cover. Soap build up in that area can also result in an odor. The is something you can do yourself. Good Luck.

Maytag top load clothes washer tub spins hard


Hi, You can unsnap the plastic splash ring and see if something is between the tubs. The inner tub turns rather hard anyways. The agitator might have a 1/4" screws in the side of it to hold it onto the shaft of the transmission. If not, just pull the agitator up real hard.
Under the agitator is a spanner nut that holds the inner tub in place. I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.
