While the agitator on my Maytag moves there does not seem to be significant action. For example when washing a pair of queen size sheets the powder detergent does not dissolve. Moreover, it appears not to be spinning out the water from clothes as it used to.
I checked the belts and the drive belt appeared loose and was able to "pluck-off" the pump belt. Neither appeared worn just loose. The machine was purchased in May of 1997. So it might be time to replace the belts, but how do I know that this is a belt problem? Could the transmission be failing causing the above noted problems? And if so how do I test for a faulty transmission?
ANSWER Hello Mark. You will need to check and see if the belts on the unit are burnt or cracked. If so, you will need to replace the belts 12112425. Hope this helps.
