i have a maytag nepune washer model MAH4000AWM Serial No.

This answer was rated:

i have a maytag nepune washer
model MAH4000AWM
Serial No. 40320348wh

Approx 10 - 11 years old
it starts up rinses pumps out the water but does not spin.
i removed the back panel to see if the belt was broken but it was ok....
i did notice that when the washer enters the spin cycle the motor oscilates
back and forth.
i removed the belt and checked the rotation of the drum... it is free and the motor still oscilates back and forth by it self for a short period of time... it stops then does it again
does the motor have a start capacitor? Or what?
any help would be appreciated.

You have an issue with the motor ,Maytag even had a service pointer out on this model . if the motor goes bad you have to also replace the motor control , it comes as a kit .
