Belt stops running and clicky noises

My washer makes a clicky noise in the spin cycle and sometimes in the wash cycle. The belt also seizes up and just make a errrr noise and won't spin or agitate. The belt broke and we replaced it, but it is still making the noise and seizing. We thought something was in the drain discharge, but nothing. Can anybody help?

Washer won't spin and makes noise on spin cycle


Sounds as if it just a broken belt. Take the back off and find where the belt is located to see if broken. Depending on the washer they can be easy to fix

If the unit will not spin at all and makes a humming noise, sounds like something has seized up in the back of the unit. This could be a belt broken, motor seized up, or the transmission, if your unit has one, is gone.

Hi,
Check the electrovalve for the supply of the water and the belt that runs the cylinder of the washer with the electric motor.

Hello, could be a possible bad pump. I would lean the washer back so you can see the belt. take the belt off and spin all of the pulleys. the pump pulley has a s leave that sometimes makes a grinding noise.

Maytag Performa PAV2300AWW screaching noise, belt problem, pulley broke


My Maytag Performa was making the loud squealing noise. I changed out the water pump/bearing, took care of the problem.
Putting a new belt on just help burn up the bearing (they needed replacing) and probably ruined the new belt. Probably seized the water pump bearing and the belt jumped and broke the motor pully. A washing machine motor is very strong, when that h20 pump bearing seized (or possibly some bearings jamed up) the motor kept on turning that belt and the plastic pully gave in. You'll need to replace that also. If the h20 pumb bearing is turning freely, likely the bearings jammed up but or now loose. That bearing should be tight, no slack or play in it. You can probably wobble the pully on it all around while turning it. The slightest slack is too much.

No spin cycle


Sounds like a pump problem. If the tub is full of water, it likely won't spin...it's just too much for the motor. The pump is supposed to do it's job first by pumping out all of the water so the motor can spin the tub. I bet the noise you hear is the belt trying to run in a seized v-belt pulley.

Change the pump...bet that does the trick.
