Well i have already diconected the water supply in order to move it to a work plac , but before i did that I did recycle to wash again and it would start to fill up with water but I stoped it before it reached the agitate mode. Now when I put the machine in agitate mode it merely humms and there is no movement.

Okay is the hum down by the motor or up inside the control panel?

Just to know what would be the cause of all those plastic white color shavings at the bottom of the base?

That is from the snubber as it wears down over the years, as long as the tub is not banging while spinning your clothes out, then it is not a problem..

Hey thanks a lot buddy I will do that. By the way i narrowed down where that humming is originating from and it is located at the water inlet valve area where the water comes in to fill the tub. Thanks again and stay safe.

have a nice day!

Chas, It s a no go. I got the new part in today and I hookled it up to the control panel. At first nothing happened so I connected my garden hose to simulate a washing of small load, It started to fill and then when it began to wash and the aggitator kicked in, it started to make a noise like a squealling noise and then it eventualy stopped altogether after about two minutes. Any advice? almost forgot, but before i connected the water hose, I tried to get it to spin cycle several times and in that process i though I could smell something like a burning smell.


 


Optional Information:
Brand: maytag
Type of Appliance: Washer
Model Number: MAV6358AWW
What have you tried so far?: I tried the new part that chas advised.
