Symptom-in spin cycle there is a flopping sound, like the belt is flopping. The belt has very little slack. The motor seems to move excessively to me, but I don't know how much it is supposed to move. The flopping sound is annoying. I checked the motor spring. It is in place but I don't know if it could be the problem. Separate issue One more thing.- it has a moderate squeak when the brake engages.

Went to change belt and the motor seems to almost have no tension. The motor seems to be basically flopping around. Could the motor spring be disconnected or loose and what do I need to remove to get to the motor spring?

Follow up to last question. I have changed the pump, belt, and put in the thrust washer kit. The brake releases with the arrow between the two marks. The motor moves freely in plate. When the unit goes to drain the motor still does not shift clockwise to make the basket spin and the water to drain out. I can smell rubber and it will leave light rubber dust near the motor pulley. I still can make it work properly if I manually move the motor on the base and hold it there until the water is removed. I can then release the motor and it will stay in position, but the basket slows down slightly. If I release the motor before the water drains out it will turn counter clockwise and the basket stops spinning and the pump does not drain the water. What does the motor spring do? Mine is rusty but attached. I am baffled!

Motor does not shift to tighten belt when agitator runs. Motor slides easily in track. New belt and water pump. If I manually move motor and hold it in place everything runs like it is suppose to. I am thinking thrust bearing p/n 12002213 needs to be replaced. Thanks!

Have a Maytag Performa Top Loader. Can wring excess water out of clothes after final spin cycle. Checked to see if hoses were stopped up, hoses were fine. Pump also checked, and was not stopped up. Changed belt, still same problem. Motor seems to have a lot of movement from side to side, is this normal?

My washer will spin on a low speed but when it comes time for it to really spin fast it wont but it acts like it wants to. I looked under the washer and messed with the belt and their is alot of slack in the belt it moves around when I pull on it. And does it have a motor spring if so how do you check it?

My washer goes to spin and just stops; you can shake it a little and it will take off. I seems to do this more before rinse cycle starts. There is no unusual noise. What could be wrong? I checked all connections
