Are you saying that you can remove the belt and are unable to manually turn the clutch pulley in the spin direction? The clutch is supposed to release the spin basket and spin the tub while the transmission remains neutral.


Was the machine making a growling noise in the spin cycle prior to the problem?

Initially, I did not realize that the clutch was part of the pulley. When I did remove the pulley/clutch I found the top "one-way" clutch bearing was seized. Guess that was caused by the seal above starting to leak.

You had better plan on a  new outer tub and tranny, most likely. Maytag only made this machine for about 2.5 years to pacify the folks who won the Neptune class action settlement. They soon closed the factory in SC. Better off buying a different machine.
