Maytag A512. Screeching noise smokes. Belts replaced, water pumps fine, spins. It does not agitate but the agitator is fine. Not stripped. What other problems? Transmission? parts to fix it?


The agitator shaft, not the agitator, is corroded and does not move freely.Smoke is the overheated belts, you need a transmission overhaul, boot seal and tub bearing as well as replacing the agitator shaft, again, NOT the agitator.

I have a washer Maytag Model A512 It was moved to install a new floor. The machine is level when put back. It now shakes a lot, on the spin cycle especially on the gentle cycle.


Pull the machine out and tilt it back and check that the shock absorbers are still connected, these are the 2 bars, 1 at each side that connect the drum to the frame. Also take the lid off and check that the springs are still connected and the counterweights are still in place (these look like concrete blocks)

Motor seems to run but won't agitate or spin.


Dont take it apart you dont know enough to do that safeky!
It could be the pressure switch and or hose. Put that to a local techo and see what he offers to charge to fix it.

Older Maytag fills with water, but doesn't run.


I have a 20 year old A512 & replaced only a very few items on it (fill valves, belts & air gap).

I would troubleshoot it & repair myself....can you use a voltmeter & are you comfortable exposing the timer / wiring.

My guess is motor (or timer, but less likely since its dead in all cycles). but you've got to get a solid diagnosis so you can order parts.

I suggest oyu find a guy on Craigslsit to repair..
cheers
Bob

Maytag A512 Leaks out airgap when draining/spinning out


Check pump. I would say it is the most likely cause for the water leak, especially if itdoes it while filling and on spin as the pump holds some residual water in it . That is normal.
