Question Maytag washer spins slowly
Model Number: MAV2757AWW   Brand: Maytag   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


During the spin cycle the washer never gets up to speed so clothes are still soaking wet. I replaced the thrust washer but it did not help. I did notice that I am unable to turn the tub (tried by using a wrench on the agitator bolt). Also the tub pulley underneath the washer will spin freely in either direction but the tub will not move when spinning the pulley.

Sounds like you either did not get the thrust washer on with enough pressure, or more likely you have a brake problem. Getting into the brakes is not an easy repair and you have to have a special brake tool as the spring is under heavy pressure and can be dangerous.

Thanks. I replaced the brake and the machine will now spin but will not agitate. I suspect it is a brake engagement issue. Will adjust and try again. I was able to remove the brake quite easily by replacing two of the stator screws will ones that were 1.5 inches long. Removing these longer screws last (evenly) allows the spring to slowly decompress.
