Smoking is from the belt slipping. the belt needs replaced but you must check thateverything that belt runs is moving freely. you also may have just overloaded the machine. too many jeans or big blankets

Maytag washer is sometimes out of balance and clothes are sopping wet when spin cycle ends. Washer is balanced on the floor.


1ST thing put less clothes in washer each time

second ck to see that drain hose is not obstructed from draining out the chamber , ive seen fabric lint get stuck inside the drain valves and slow and eventually block them off

last thing to look at
temp defeat the lid lock switch and or watch it spin thru window , your looking for the speed it spins at (should be a blur !!) , if its slow and not steady in rate but instead sort of gets slow/fast/slow/fast this could be an indication that your tub drive system isn't working well , this depends on a large bit of things working properly , but could be as simple as a worn out drive belt too.

My Magtag Neptune TL 6800 started making a horrible squealing noise then smoke started coming out of the washer. What do you the problem may be?


You need to replace the belt needed to spin the drum. It sounds to me like you may have been overloading the drum, putting too much stress on the belt. Over time, it has begun to " burn rubber" as it spins, causing smoke, or worst case scenario, the motor that turns the belt is locking up as the drum spins causing friction on the belt.

Maytag washer won't shift to rapid spin dry (only slow back & forth)


Hi Jim, you issue could be caused by a couple either one of a of the following,
1) Draining problem, cant empty the water from the machine within the prescribed time limit - preventing the spin programme to commence. check pump filter is clear and waste water is pumping from the end of the waste hose, the hose itself could be blocked with limescale and detergent residue.
2) Unbalanced load, most machines wont spin 1 item, its a safety thing, if a machine spins with one heavy item it puts the drum out of balance resulting in excessive drum movement possibly damaging the inside of the machine and put indue stress on the bearings. Try putting it on a spin cycle with no clothes in

Unbalanced load detection can also be caused by a faulty motor tacho, this usaually positioned at the rear of the motor, this sends an electrical signal to the programmer telling when it is 'Safe' to spin. There also the posibility that the programmer is not reading the tacho signal or misinterpriting it.

I m using maytag pav2200agw after fill the water washer is working fine but during the spin dry cycle water pump does pump out the water and start spin but the tub is not moving its not working propperly...


I WISH I HAD SOME ANSWERS ON THIS ONE, BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE YOUR PUMP MIGHT NEED REPLACING. HOW OLD IS YOUR WASHER? IT WOULD BE CHEAPER TO BUY A NEW WASHER. BUT IF IT IS THE PUMP, THEN YOU CAN BUY A NEW PUMP FROM WHERE YOU BOUGHT YOUR WASHER. GOOD LUCK.

Washer spin cycle


Hi joystoy


I would start with the belt. it sounds like the belt is going and that is the least expensive to fix. try that, if that doesnt work then i would call a repair company to look at it.

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.
