Check the belt idler wheel by the motor. You may have to apply a little pressure to this wheel to see if the belt stops slipping. Keep in mind that the belt may be worn or stretched

Maytag Performa PAV920AWW makes squeeling sound when agitating/spinning. Water does not drain completely during spin.

Sounds like brake is partially engaged. There is s kit that may fix that. Part # 12002213.

The machine will not agitate. The belt is good and does not slip. The motor is humming, and seems to be trying to run, but something seems to be stuck.

Unplug the machine undo the belt. Turn the big plastic pulley int he middle counter clockwise if it turns freely with no noise then transmission is fine. Then check to see if the pump pulley movesfreely. If it does then you have a bad motor. Any noises before this problem?

Maytag Neptue frontloading washing machine model MAH5500BWW stopped spinning (machine is about 15 years old). I opened up the back and saw the drive belt was thrown. Reinstalled it (perhaps badly) and...

i would say you have a warped main pulley, run the machine in spin,watch it early to detect any wobling in the belt should be no sideway movement. also check main pulley is tight with no lateral wobling.

I have a Maytag washer that the agitator is not working , I makes a squealing noise, How do I repair this? Thanks

Your problem may be a seized water pump with the motor turning the drive belt on a water pump pulley that is not turning (belt squealing). Or the noise could be originating from a water pump that has a noisy/bad bearing. If the pump pulley is turning and making the noise, you may be able to lubricate the pump shaft with some quality shaft lubicant (no guarantee that the noise will cease)! If other problem, contact an appliance service company.

My washer agitates but does not spin

You have given a brief expansion of your problem first of thanks for that ,you have seen that motor is running but it slips kindly remove the belt from motor to mechanism and try to rotate through hands if moves freely means you mechanism is fine otherwise you are suppose to change the mechanism
You have told that you have seen some smoking problem as well so check the motor individually then fix it. if you found motor is also problem kindly replace the motor

More on my frozen maytag spin, motor seems to continue to run (i.e. the pump belt is turning), but the agitator belt is slipping. I assume this is the switch that is screwed down to the motor, about $60....

Okay here is another thought... are your sure that it isn't the pum that is getting tight and seizing up when you turn it in that direction?? Maybe you need to disconnect the coupling and spin just the motor and just the pump to see which it really is that is causing the problem.
Still don't think it is the brake...

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Washer will not agitate but will spin

It sounds like the plastic inside the agitator cog are worn. The smell is the plastic cog turning but the agitator not turning.

Take off the top of the agitator. If any screw are available remove them. If not grab the agitator from the bottom and yank off. Unscrew the agitator drive cog and inspect underside of agitator. Go to an appliance repair shop and reorder a new one. Between $15-30.
