washer won't spin out
« on: August 19, 2011, 11:57:34 AM »
I have a maytag atlantis washer Model #MAV6451AWW Serial #16404934CA it won't spin out the clothes after washing, I checked to see if it would spin without clothes and it won't. What could be the problem?

Tip the washer back and check the belt. Is it on there? Remove the belt and turn the pump. Is it stiff? Might be locked up..
Tun the main pulley does it release the tub nice and free?
