SOURCE: SUBSTITUTION PART #12002213 FOR ORIGINAL

Try turning the shaft in the agitate direction while pulling, At the same time shove the ring in. If you get it on and its too tight you can TRY a thinner washer but if the machine is noisy or doesnt spin properly there might be a problem with your transmission

Where do you get the tool to compress the spring when replacing Maytag top load thrust bearing? Even with the .032 washer, I can't get it on.

My Maytag performa washer will not agitate or go into the spin cycle. It makes a loud noise instead


From what you're describing I suspect the thrust bearing needs replaced. The thrust bearing is what releases the brakes. You will not be able to rotate the basket manually with the brakes set. I recommend replacing the thrust bearing kit part number

I have the MAYTAG top loader washer, Model #MAV6451AWW, it will not spin in the rinse cycle, how to fix / take apart?


Usually when this unit washes but will not spin the thrust bearing kit is damaged.This is easy to repair with little cost.
Completly empty the unit, clothes and water ,unplug the power cord, lie the unit on its back, remove the belt,the c clip from the pully. Take the thrust bearing,the pully the washers off the unit . Grease the new bearing and install new parts. I would also replaced the belt.

Maytag PAV2300 - Washer agitates during wash. on spin cycle motor runs and belt is fine, but drun does not spin. Water drains. Why does it not spin?


Hi, The most common problem is the thrust bearing kit. The thrust bearing is located on the lower shaft of the transmission. The kit includes a new pulley and hardware. The part #12002213 also includes instructions.
Please let me know if this helps you or if I can assist you further.

Thanks
Vic

Washer not spinning


Sounds like the brake liner could be broken. When the machine starts to spin, the motor turns in the opposite direction to the wash cycle and causes the bowl to lift off the brake liner and the bowl then spins freely. Either the riser cam is worn/broken or the brake liner is broken. This is quite involved and you may have to call in a tech.

Motor pulley


bshu, first get yourself a bunch of rolled towells or something of that nature to place between the tub and rear cabinet. This way when you lean it back the pulley will stay centered with the hole. Remove the cap to the thrust bearing, it just pops off. You will see a lock ring sitting on washers. You can remove this with a flat blade screw drive and the cam will come off. Pull down on the pulley but be carefull to remember the order of the washers and bearings. If you are going to replace the thrust bearing kit, the part number is 12500036 series 12. This kit will come with a new pulley. After you have installed the new kit, getting the last retaining clip on can get frustrating. It is tight and you may need a third hand...hope this gets you going.
