the pulley comes with the motor and can not be purchased separately. the first thing you want to check is the pump. rotate the pump pulley by hand and make sure it is free. if it is dragging then this is most likely the problem. these washers were known for pump problems. let me know how the pump feels.
The pump pulley spins, it seems to be okay, the larger center pulley also spins, the fact that they put a plastic pulley on the motor and it can't be replaced is crimminal, now I see why alot of people are disgusted with Maytag products, the fact that it's 10 years old is it worth trying to fix it, what does a new motor costs.
HI what happens is when the belt stretches it starts to allow the motor pulley to slip and then gets hot. Maytag discontinued the part and I searched every parts depot I could think of to find one. The motor is at http://www.repairclinic.com/ thanks
