Maytag mav6057aww makes loud noise while spinning

Is it a scraping sound or more of a rumbling sound? If it's scraping check for screws, nails, necklaces, etc., in the drain holes of the basket. If rumbling sound your tub bearings may be failing.

My Maytag performa washer will not agitate or go into the spin cycle. It makes a loud noise instead

From what you're describing I suspect the thrust bearing needs replaced. The thrust bearing is what releases the brakes. You will not be able to rotate the basket manually with the brakes set. I recommend replacing the thrust bearing kit part number

The motor runs but will not spin out

You either have a bad transmission - worst case - or you have a bad thrust bearing. Remove the belt and rotate the drum pulley CCW. The pulley should push the thrust bearing upwards, releasing the brake, and engage the transmission. If it doesn't you have a bad thrust bearing. It comes as a set, pulley and bearing. It's a easy job. If it is engaging transmission and still no spin then your trans can be bad.

I have the MAYTAG top loader washer, Model #MAV6451AWW, it will not spin in the rinse cycle, how to fix / take apart?

Usually when this unit washes but will not spin the thrust bearing kit is damaged.This is easy to repair with little cost.
Completly empty the unit, clothes and water ,unplug the power cord, lie the unit on its back, remove the belt,the c clip from the pully. Take the thrust bearing,the pully the washers off the unit . Grease the new bearing and install new parts. I would also replaced the belt.

Maytag Performa

thinkin your installng a new thrust bearing kit?? new one is different(actually better not as many washers). Laying this unit on its back or even side will alleviate some of that tension your experiencing. My problem is always trying to fit the E-clip back on after installing the pulley. Turnin the pulley i beleive clockwise will engage the brake and give you a little more play in the shaft. i usually get that clip on slightly and then grab and squeeze on with pliers

Its possible that the machine is not reaching full speed during spin. Check to see if the belt is slipping and that the thrust bearing pulley turns freely. When in the spin cycle the thrust bearing compresses the brake directly above it. If this brake is hanging up even a little the machine cannot reach full speed. The diagram on the right shows the thrust bearing assy. and brake.754307c.gif

Will not spin

Ap, start with the tub and basket, make sure there isn't anything caught in between preventing it from spinning. Im assuming you already checked the belt. Next would be heavy duty stuff like the thrust bearing and brake. The brake may not be releasing. You can check this by turning the pulley counter clockwise slowly and seeing if the transmission spins. If not, the thrust bearing and brake may be bad. There was a number of service flashes out on this model concerning the thrust bearing, transmission and seal kit, vibration in spin and snubber kit. These things may be covered under warranty. In the event it's your transmission, it has a 5 year warranty on back.
