coin op maytag MAT12PDBAL wont spin
« on: May 31, 2013, 07:09:59 PM »
This looks like an old school 2 belt maytag. Was a coin box and a few selector buttons. The belt was very worn so i put a new one on, dropped in 4 quarters and waited for spin. It filled fine, agitated fine, drained fine, but at spin the motor ran but it just smoked the belt.  I could turn the pulley by hand but it was very hard. Almost like the brake/clutch was still engaged. I dont work on too many of these. Its a small apartment complex with two washers. They would prefer to fix it rather than buy a new one. He thinks its 20 years old. Any advice is appreciated

Looks like a pain to do. I was reading elsewhere that clothes can get stuck between the tubs. Any easy way to check the bearings? Any tutorials?

Thanks Dab. I found some videos. Doesnt look too bad. Any way to determine that it is the bearing and not the brake?

Ok, lets assume its the bearing. How to i make it spin dry for 3 minutes as reccomended? Its a coin op and you can only select colors, whites, regular, or delicate.
You put money in and it starts at the beginning. No timer...

You need the round key to access timer by hand.Not the key for money box but service key owner must have.

 Most Maytag keys are a ZB7 key at least in my area.

Ok, thanks. He has the key. I used it before to replace part of the coin box that was vandalized. Didnt notice a timer, but that makes sense. I am going back to look at it next week. Ill update then
