Question about Maytag Atlantis MAV6451 Top Load Washer
My washing machine started to trip the circuit breaker. Then one night it tripped it and the basement smelled of burned rubber and the machine wouldn't spin the load fast. I replaced both belts and started a load of wash. The wash cycle worked fine, but when it got to the spin cycle, it spun very slowly. The pump belt is spinning, but the drive pulley is only moving at a very slow rate. I'm sure that's why I smelled burned rubber before. Since this is not a belt problem, is this a motor problem? Is this worth repairing?
Check to see if it is a pump problem or a transmission problem. First remove both belts see if all the pullys turn freely. if the pump has a tight feel check inside pump for a item jammed in it.look for transmission oil on floor or belts if oil is present transmmision if probably going.ALSO check at the top of the tubs for anything stuk in between tubs.
