I have a Maytag top loading wash machine. When it goes into the spin cycle it makes a fast loud popping noise (water is draining but tub is not spinnning). I looked at it and the plastic helix on the very bottom of the drive was not staying engaged in the spin cycle. It engages fine in wash mode. I replace the spin pulley and plastic helix thinking it was just worn out. Worked great for about three weeks and now it is doing the exact same thing again. Any advice?

Most likely the problem with your washer is a bad triple lip seal.

You can find the complete instructions how to replace the triple lip seal and bearing in the Maytag bulletin.

You will need a few special tools. The part numbers you can find in the bulletin.

- The part number for the triple lip seal and bearing assembly is
AP4260929

Good luck.
Gene.

After I read your response I looked at my machine again. I noticed that the shaft moves up and down about a half an inch. I am assuming that it shouldn't and that's why the small plastic helix is not engaging during the spin cycle. Am I correct. :)

Sounds like a bad transmission.
