Maytag LAT9806AAE washer won't spin
« on: September 07, 2012, 06:46:43 PM »
So originally this was gave out and wouldn't spin.  I replaced both the tub seal and bearing thinking that was my only problem.  After I replaced those items I got the washer to do spin cycle once.  Now it won't spin again.  I've replaced the lid switch and fuse and both drive belts.   I've checked and the the motor pulley is spinning while spin cycle is selected.  The transmission pulley is not rotating though.  Is my problem the brake or transmission pulley?  If it's the transmission itself, I'll just junk this washer.  Thanks.

Transmission does nothing in spin. Double check the tub bearing,did it slide easily over the transmission and tub slide onto it when assembling it? From under the unit (unplugged) turn the center pulley clockwise and should spin freely.If not check for an item between tubs and then go to the tub bearing.

Even if the bearings were seized or something was stuck between the tubs, the transmission pulley should turn and release the brake before it locked up. Are you saying the pulley won't turn at all?

I can manually turn the pulley, but when the washer is in spin mode, the motor pulley turns but it doesn't turn the transmission pulley.

How many revolutions can you turn the pulley by hand?

I can turn the pulley 3/4 to 1 full revolution clockwise, and turn it freely counter-clockwise.

Yep, that would be right. At this point I would take the tub and the upper part of the seal out and then put it into spin and see what happens.
