question on an older maytag washer 2 belt system
Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

Have you tried to turn the transmission pulley both directions by hand? Will the transmission pulley turn both direction?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.


yes it turns both ways but on one directiuon it will stop at about 180 degrees into the turn

OK so that sounds like your transmission is jamming up internally if it stops turning after you turn it 180 degrees. There really isn't anything you can do to fix that but to replace the transmission which most of the time is just not worth repairing on units this old.
