Maytag Dependble - No Spin/Drain, Motr Hums - Belt Cn Be Rotatd by Hand 2 Start Motor
Model Number: LAT94166AAE Brand:
5 - 10 years
Hello and thanks for your help. Have searched all the forums but not found this exact problem or answer. Got a six year old Maytag Dependable Top Loader in good overall shape except for this. When entering the Spin Cycle, during a normal wash, motor will hum with a tub full of water and clothes. Push Selector knob in for off and back out, hum returns - no movement in tub
After searching forums and trying a few things, removed clothes from tub and drained the tub almost completely. Unplugged, removed front cover, leaned washer against wall, visually inspected belts for wear and play - seem normal and was able to hand turn the belt either way. Plugged back in and checked lid switch. Seems to work. When lid is up, won't hum, when down - does. While now plugged in and still leaning on wall, tried something new and tried to rotate belt again by hand - with just a little help, belt took off, motor started and washer fired up. Returned to floor - opened lid slightly to see slight agitation going on in tub. It just continues to do this for all of Spin Cycle and then cuts off into Off position on Selector per timer with water still in tub and no drain or spin. I have read on the Forums that because it never drained it will not spin. Drain hose seems to not be pinched or kinked.
Any ideas. I really appreciate it.
