Maytag performa burning smell
« on: January 11, 2012, 09:30:11 AM »
Model: LAT2500AAE
Just set up a call for tomorrow.  The customer said pump will run fine but when in agitate or spin it will not turn the pulley and smell's burning.  He can turn the pulley by hand and found nothing between the tub.
Any thought's?  Just  a bad belt?
Thanks

It's not like the old dependable series where the adjustment is with the pump?  Little zoom oil loosen the pump up?

Take new belts and a pump with you.
Remove the pump belt and run the washer in wash and spin mode to make sure there is not a transmission/spin bearing problem.
If it works without the pump belt on,replace the pump and both belts.

Pump good, good on agitate, will not spin.  Spin bearing good...can turn by hand but very tight.  Can't budge tub nut so soaking it in rust buster for night then try again and break apart if need be.  I'm thinking tub bearing...ya think I'm on the right track?

Sounds like the right direction. Remember the nut is a right hand thread and a set screw.
