I have a Maytag LA9900...
I have a Maytag LA9900 which does now go through the spin cycle properly. I had previously posted about this and was advised to replace the drive belts. This helped me go from no sping to some spin, but the spin cycle will not get up to speed unless I pull on the drive motor (this tightens up the new belts). If I pull too hard the drive motor stops, if I pull with medium tention, the drum spins as you would expect it to spin.

Reply to Glenn's Post: There is no way to adjust tension on the belt between the drive motor and the transmission. You can adjust the tension on the pump belt, which is adjusted all the way out (makes the belt as tight as you can). Both belts were just replace with new replacement belts. On the bottom of the drive motor, there are two alluminum pulleys on the bottom of the motor with an allen screw holding them onto the motor shaft. I am not sure, but I am assuming that the aluminum pulleys have worn. I need to be able to find replacement pulleys. Can you provide parts or a link to the parts?

Here is a link I found on the sears parts website, but it is not real specific:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/displayPartDetailAction.action?partNumber=200816&productGroupId=0026&supplierId=464&documentId=X2900735&pageId=00006

It looks like a dual pully with a single set screw.
