Hi, I have a Model: MAVT634AWW. The motor seems to run fine, and when it's time to spin, the motor moves to the spin position (for lack of a better term), but the drum won't spin. I think that the drum and agitator are frozen. What I have done: I have removed the pump to ensure there's nothing in there, I have removed the agitator to make sure nothing is stuck in there, I removed the motor to make sure it's in good condition, I've looked at the belt (it doesn't appear to be cracked or broken). Looking at websites, it might be the transmission, at which point I need to replace the washer, or the bearing/drive assembly, but I'm not sure. Any help you can provide will be most appreciated so that I don't have to buy a new washer, thanks!
Hi, Sounds like it could be as you said the transmission, bearings, etc. However we have seen where an item such as a sock or similar can get stuck between the drum and tub causing it to not spin. Take apart the drum and tub and be sure there is nothing jammed in there. Many times on a washer that will not spin properly this is the case. This is a good thing to check before you start ordering new parts or a new washer. Here is a parts breakdown of your Maytag Washing Machine Drum to see what is involved to disassemble. If there is nothing jammed inbetween, then you should check to see if the transmission is able to move as designed. As for the bearings, you should be able to actually see if they are bad visually. Hopefully it is not the transmission, but if so check multiple websites and check pricing as you MAY be able to find one that will make sense instead of replacing the complete washer. Good luck. -ARQ
