  • it sounds like it could be a bad belt. tilt the machine over and look at the very bottom, you will see the belts. they are spring loaded and can be changed without any tools.

  • or you may need a transmission pulley and bearing repair kit ($30). this will fix the center pulley (spinning problem, not he draining issue) if it is stripped out. as you will see, the center pulley is made of plastic and does have frequent problems. but the good thing is that the parts are cheap and easy to change.

Maytag Top Loader Thumps When In Spin Cycle

My guess is that one of the three counterweights have separated from their support. Probably rusted away.

Maytag washer, model: LAT8415AAE top loader. Washer fills with water but will not start agitating,spin or drain.

Check lid switch. Most will not run with lid open and the switch may not be pressed down when door is closed

Your machine has a two speed motor. If the motor hums as it tries to spin in the normal cycle, it could be the motor. If there is no noise, it could be a timer related issue.
