|Maytag Alantis MAVT834AWW-
Fills with water, no agitation. Timer works, goes into spin and the water is pumped out.
Tried other wash settings still same thing. It is a 5 speed so tried all 5 speed settings. Same thing.
During the agitation cycle the motor is humming, if I help it to start it will run. After I help it, all is normal.
Motor hums with the belt off, but will start if I spin the pulley.
This model does not appear to have a start cap, prints say start cap only for export models. Not sure where it comes from so it could be export model but I have not found a cap yet. It runs when it comes to spin so the start windings are good, I think.
I am leaning towards replacing the motor but wanted an appliance tech to chime in here if I am missing something.
