Hi,

 

I figured out why it wasn't spinning, the belt between the motor mounted at the front of the unit and the bottom of the drum had broken.  But the reason it broke was that the drum, and the pully that is attached to the bottom of the drum, will not spin.  If i try to spin the drum from the inside, under the clothes lid, it will turn if push very hard, feels like the brakes are on.

 

Any Ideas?

 

Thanks,

 

Jeff

Did the machine start to get progressively noisy in the spin cycle, like a jet plane taking off or a freight train?

I dont really know, my wife said she smelled something weird and the clothes were much wetter than usual after washing them.  The smell must have been the belt binding up.

May just be a bad belt....you should be able to turn the big pulley in both directions (not the tub).

The big pully will spin the opposite direction the motor(small pully) spins when on spin cycle, it will only turn a little less than one spin in the opposite direction before it binds up

Ok I got a chance to look at it a little closer. Above the big pully that the belt rode on, there is another "pully" looks like maybe it has clutches on it? But there are 3 brake pads that ride in it. It looks like the brakes are applied, keeping the tub from spinning. How can I get this brake to release? Is it a electronic issue do you think or something else?

I need you help please, i know you can wear jeans a few days in a row, but I think mine actually tried to talk to me this morning!

Hmmm... these Searcy built Maytags  sometime have an issue with the Triple Lip Seal Bearing failing/going bad...may have led to the problems you're seeing now.

Thanks guys, I looked at that general operating procedures, it appears that the brake is supposed to release itself from the brake pads. Mine is not doing this and the motor spun thru the belt. Should I just replace the brake assembly, or do you think something else is causing the brake to lock up? Thanks for everyones help

As stated on page 7 of the service manual when you rotate the transmission pulley in the clockwise direction can you see the helix rise to disengage the brakes?

Yep sounds like the brakes are an issue...do you also see any traces of a leak as stated earlier from the triple lip seal? Trying to determine if you have 1 or 2 problems....how old is this machine?

Good news! I took a pair of pliars and pulled on the bottom rotor of the brake in the direction the helix would have moved it. I didnt think it did anything, because the brake was still on. Then i spun the belt pully clockwise and the helix lifted it up and the brake opened up! There is a god!

I read a little on here about greasing the brake. Is this the type I should grease? Any special grease? Where do i grease it?

Thanks for everyones help, this site is great

Page#30 of the service manual previously linked explains the proper lube procedure.
