Maytag Washer MAV6000AWW Washer was only agitating the load if heavy duty and whites cycle selected; which I assume would be the strongest setting. Now the washer will not begin a spin cycle with water level full and I hear a humming and smell slight overheating.
You will want to check the drain pump to make sure that the bearings are not going bad. Also check the thrust bearing to make sure that the thrust is lifting the brake for the spin.
