MAYTAG MAV8600AWW I have the same problem. If I start the load it will not wash until I close the lid. Thats means it is not the switch right? Every thing works, excempt it will not spin. The belt is on the pully. With it on and in spin clcly on I can not turn the innter metal basket by it self it will not move?

On these, it won't agitate unless the lid is closed. The screeching is probably just the brake. Let's focus on the no spin condition. See this post for some pearls of wisdom on this problem and let us know whatcha think:

Frist of all thank you, It does not move so I need that kit. I have a exploded view but is there any intrustion I can look at to see if I can do this my self.

One other thing can I seperate the tubs I dont see any clothes in there but can one get in where I can see. I have had my infants sock stuck in there before but I saw it and took out no big deal?

That page didn't just tell you to buy a part-- it gave instructions for diagnosing a no spin condition.

So what did you do to diagnose the problem and what did you find????????????????????????????

First checked belt it’s on and fine

2 pump spinning free = yes

3 motor pivoting on its plate freely =yes

4 After that, I raised the top like I was going to remove the tub cover and set unit into spin. With the motor running, and the tub just sitting there not spinning reach in and to see if I can rotate the inner basket almost like a roulette wheel. = I could not then and now after part replacement

It says = If you cannot, that means your brake is still holding or you have an article of clothing stuck between the tubs. If the brake is holding, you will just need a thrust bearing kit which is listed below.

Q about the swicth? Does it control spin cycle seprate?

When I have the washer in wash it will not start until you close the lid. So the switch is good right?

Lid Switch will stop the Motor in any cycle.

Since it Agitates and also since the Motor is running during Spin, the Lid Switch is good.

I think you may need to adjust the brake disengagement.

Alright, let's go back to basics:

Transmission Operation

When the Drive Pulley rotates CLOCKWISE, the upper and lower cams are designed to nest together which allows the Drive Pulley to remain in position on the drive shaft. The Break remains engaged and the Drive Pulley will turn the lower cam and drive the shaft to cause the Transmission to agitate.

When the Drive Pulley rotates COUNTERCLOCKWISE, the upper cam and Pulley ride up the lower cam approximately 3/16 of an inch before the driving shoulders on the Pulley hub engage the "dogs" on the lower cam.

This causes the top of the Pulley hub to push against the Spacer which compresses the Brake Spring and lifts the Brake Rotor and Lining assembly off the Brake Stator. The Brake is disengaged and the Pulley will turn the lower cam and drive shaft to cause the Transmission to spin.

Determine Brake Rotor Condition

Watch the Spacer on the Encapsulated Thrust Bearing. If the Spacer rotates with the Pulley, the Brake is functioning properly. If the Spacer stays stationary while rotating the Pulley to release the Brake, the Brake Rotor must be replaced.

After reassembling the Washer, fill the Tub with water and select a spin to drain the Tub. When the cycle is finished, verify the adjustment of the Brake, and verify the Spacer on the Thrust Bearing rotates with the Pulley.

Brake Adjustment

1. After reassembling the components on the drive shaft, it may be necessary to pull down on the shaft to take the endplay out before the Thrust Washer and Retaining Ring can be reinstalled.

NOTE: Each time the cams are reassembled on the drive shaft, the point in the cam rise where the Brake disengages the Stator should be checked and adjusted as necessary. Reference points have been molded into the Pulley as an aid in checking the point of Brake disengagement.
