Default Agitator won't turn in any cycle
Model Number: LA412   Brand: Maytag   Age: More than 10 years

Hi. New here and trying to repair my Maytag washing machine rather than buy a new one. In short, here's the situation:
- Agitator stopped turning in any cycle (wash or spin)
- Pulled front cover off
- Found a broken belt for large pulley on floor under washing
- Replaced belt but the large pulley won't turn; Belt is burning on motor
pulley and won't turn large pulley
- I can turn the large pulley counter-clockwise by hand easily
- Turning the large pulley clockwise turns the agitator

It seems as though there's not enough tension on the drive belt for what I think is the transmission drive.

Any troubleshooting suggestions is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Most likely you had to replace both belts. Then you can adjust belt tension by moving the drain pump. The instructions are attached to the reply. Make sure the motor goes freely on the mounting plate. Otherwise replace the rollers.

- The pump belt Part number: AP4024902

Part number: AP4024902



- The roller kit Part number: AP4023752

Part number: AP4023752



Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for MAYTAG LA412 WASHER-TOP LOADING | AppliancePartsPros.com
