Washer does not agitate, burning rubber smell. Does spin to evacuate water from tub. Do I have to replace the Trans Dee?
Answer Ron, Most likely, yes. You you conduct the manual test, first. Slide the washer out, raise and block up the front of the washer, remove the drive belts. Grasp the drive pulley on the transmission and turn it in a counterclockwise direction, The Tub should start to spin in 1/2 to 3/4 of a revolution of the pulley. Turn the pulley in a clockwise direction, and the pulley should be relatively easy to turn and your assistant, should see the agitator oscilate. If the the pulley is hard to turn or cannot be turned, That would indicate a gear case issue or top agitator shaft bearing issue. Good Luck and Thanks
My washing machine doesn't agitate.I've changed the belts,turned the pulley in one dirction and the tub spinned,turned the pulley in the opposite direction and the agitator turned.Is there anything else I can try? Thanks
Answer Bill, Does the motor run in the agitate mode ? does the motor move back and forth on the motor carriage assembly with the belts off ? Based on your post, everything is mechanically, fine in the transmission. I've never seen a Maytag agitator strip out on the agitator shaft, but you may want to check there. Good Luck and Thanks
I am getting black grease on whites?
Answer Hi John. Most likely your fabric softner cup has old fabric softner. It will age and turn from blue to green, brown and then black. It will be all under the cap and leak under the agtitator. The cup replacement part # is 215733. Thank you.
