My washer fills fine, but will not agate, If I put it into the spin cycle the tub does not spin. I have removed the belt and the motor operates ok. When I turn the pulley into a counter clockwise direction to lock the break, there is no resistance. The tube doesbn't move.This machine only has one belt. Any suggestions woul be helpful. Thank You
Answer Larry, When the Drive Pulley rotates CLOCKWISE, the upper and lower cams are designed to nest together which allows the Drive Pulley to remain in position on the drive shaft. The Break remains engaged and the Drive Pulley will turn the lower cam and drive the shaft to cause the Transmission to agitate.When the Drive Pulley rotates COUNTERCLOCKWISE, the upper cam and Pulley ride up the lower cam approximately 3/16 of an inch before the driving shoulders on the Pulley hub engage the "dogs" on the lower cam. This causes the top of the Pulley hub to push against the Spacer which compresses the Brake Spring and lifts the Brake Rotor and Lining assembly off the Brake Stator. The Brake is disengaged and the Pulley will turn the lower cam and drive shaft to cause the Transmission to spin. If you remove the belt and turn the transmission pulley clockwise, the agitator should oscillate back and forth, if not you have an internal failure and will need a transmission 35-6615 . If the washer agitates but does not spin, then you'll need to check or replace the thrust bearing kit 12002213 and belt 21352320 .
washer will not spion just put tub seal kit no leaks did spin before repair checked belt looks worn down looked under unit motor was spinning but trans was not turning but is free to spin by hand
Answer Dan, If the belt looks worn, then it is 22003483, Also check the motor pulley 21001108 for glazed and worn or melted areas in the sheave. Then remove the thrust bearing assembly 12002213 and check the cams and washers and bearing for excess wear or distortion, this can cause the brake rotor and clutch spring to malfunction and the washer motor won't spin the tub, but can be spun by hand.
Am looking for Wire Connector for this motor, is it on sale?
Answer Alex, The wire connector and wiring on the motor, is not available as a separate component. You will need to order the main wire harness for the washing machine. An alternative would be 12002417 motor wire kit. but without a model or serial number, we can't be positive it will fit or work on your washer.
I have a Maytag Atlantis that fills up but does not start to agitate, it makes a grinding or humming noise. It almost seems like the tub and agitator assembly get really tight and you have to manually spin them to get them until their loose and the. It will start up. Would this be the motor assembly or something else?
Model number MAV6451AWW
Answer Megan, It sounds more like a voltage or timer 22004189 issue. When the motor attempts to start and run , do the lights in the room go dim ? This is a "good" indication of a low voltage situation. There has to be a minimum of 105 to 108 volts supplied to the washer when the motor starts to run, if not the motor will make a loud humming noise and will not start. You can also raise the front of the washer, remove the drive belt and turn the transmission pulley several revolutions in both directions. If the transmission is at fault it will be extremely hard to turn in the clockwise direction. Also check and make sure the drive belt has not shrunk, due to excess slippage or overloading of the washer.
What is the part # for the motor pulley for this washer? Can I just buy the pulley. How do I remove the old pulley from the shaft? Thanking You In Advance BOB
Answer Hello Bob. 21001108 is the pulley. You will need to take a pair of channel lock pliers and pull it off. If it will not come off and has melted to the motor shaft, you will need to use a hammer and chisel and cut it off. Be careful not to damage the motor shaft.
