Maytag washer not spin
« on: March 02, 2009, 06:08:43 AM »
Maytag washer does not spin. No problem in draining. Motor is working. Burning smell at the time of spin session. Can a novice fix it?

Model A613

I think the model is A613.
It is Maytag Heavy Duty 2 speed, extra capacity.
I hope it helps.
Thank you.

Check and or replace your drive belt and pump belt.
Check the drain pump for obstructions.
Yes, with the AJ Team help, you can do it.

Thank you very much.
To replace drive belt and pump belt, do I have to dissemble either front panel or the top?
Or lay the machine on its side and work on it? Bear with my questions. I tried to find a repair manual for the machine, but I couldn't because I could not find the name of the model except for the A130.

This service manual will cover your washer.

16010373 Maytag Dependable Care Washer 184 pages, 14.359Mb

To replace the belts just tip the washer back just enough to look under it. You may need someone to help hold the washer back as you look under it or rest it on a chair.

The old belts will just roll off the pulleys and the new belts will roll right back on. No tools needed.
Hope you find our website helpful.

The service manual does not cover your exact model number, but it's the same basic washer design by Maytag.

Check out page 98 in the service manuals, replacing belts.
