Bob Fife asked 2 years ago
I have a Maytag top load washing machine, Model # A9400S.I have replaced the Bearing kit and the Seal kit. Also, replaced the worn main drive belt.Now the machine fills correctly, agitates properly, but when it comes to the spin cycle, it starts to spin and as it gets up to to full spin speed, it stops abruptly. If left alone, the timer continues and it will repeat starting to spin and then stopping.I removed the 2 drive belts and installed only the pump belt. Now, the machine did not stop and did pump out the water.I tried the reset by removing power plug for a minute; then plugging in and opening and closing the lid 6 times. This made no difference.Any idea what is causing this problem?Thanks very much.
