Default Maytag MAV9657EWW won't spin, makes clunking noise
Model Number: MAV9657EWW   Brand: Maytag   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


Our Maytag will not spin. It seems to agitate normally otherwise. When in the spin part of the cycle, the agitator seems to rotate slowly (it's hard to tell because the interlock switch stops the motor when you lift the lid to peer in). It makes an occasional clunk and sounds "labored" the whole time, but it doesn't spin fast enough to throw fabric softener from the cup at the top of the agitator (not enough centrifugal force, I suspect).

Your thoughts?

Thanks.

You probably have a worn thrust washer above the tranny pulley, order the kit, AP4009132 If you turn the tranny puley in the spin direction, and the tranny will not turn, this confirms it.

How difficult is it to replace these parts? How do I best get access to that area to do the work?

Thanks.

You tilt the washer back to reach the tranny pulley, directions come with the kit. Can be hard to get the last washer in, helps to pry down the shaft with a screwdriver.

Thanks. Got the kit yesterday and it looks relatively simple (we'll see). Hope this fixes the problem.

When does it make the Clunk noise ?

Have you checked the motor slide platform,and tension spring ?

I'm thinking two possibilities,

1) Slipping brake/clutch assembly (most likely).

Part number: AP4009132

Part number: AP4009132


Part number: AP4373023

Part number: AP4373023


2) Stiff/seizing tub bearing assembly(least likely).

Part number: AP4025154

Part number: AP4025154


Except for the clunk noise,that's what is making me less confident about the previous parts I listed for you.

I'm going to replace the parts in the first kit you mentioned and try it out. Certainly can't hurt anything. I'll report back on the results. The clunking was only very occasional, by the way.

Thanks.

I am working to install the thrust bearing kit, but with all new parts on, when I rotate the pulley either direction, it just spins. There is no resistance to turning and the pulley does not move up or down as it's supposed to with the cam. The cam just spins with the pulley. Does this point to the need to replace the "Brake Roto?" If so, how difficult is that?
Thanks.

And one more bit of data. Since the pulley spun freely both directions, I was not able to go through the brake disengagement adjustment where you try different washer thicknesses. I could only fit the thin washer on the shaft and manage to install the E-clip. So I just put it back together, set the washer upright, plugged it in and set it to the spin portion of the cycle. When I peered into the tub with a flashlight, it appeared to be agitating. Don't know if this tells you anything important or not, but...

I would re-post this with the new syptoms, perhaps someone has seen this before, I never have.
