This answer was rated:

maytag washer mod pavt234aww slow spin on spin cycle also notice that the agitator is now working on spin and drum not spinning. have replaced snubber, and drive pulley washer transmission pulley & bearing. still not spinning.

S.E.Thomas :

hello, welcome to just answer. my name is XXXXX XXXXX and i will be happy to assist you with your problem. You replaced the transmission pulley, not the transmission correct?

JACUSTOMER-ziqskk6f- :

yes just the pulley

S.E.Thomas :

when the pulley turns in the direction of spin it should ride up the shaft and release the brake.

S.E.Thomas :

if this is not happening then you mast

S.E.Thomas :

then you have a bad transmission. it is turning free and letting the pulley spin freely in reverse. this should not happen.

S.E.Thomas :

you need to replace the transmission and on this washer you may want to think about replacing the entire washer as this is not cost effective.

JACUSTOMER-ziqskk6f- :

thats what i was afaid of . the washer was new aug 2005

S.E.Thomas :

these were built to be a low end maytag. they were made with cheap parts and did not hold up very well.
