I have a 4 year old washer (Maytag HAV2460AWW) that has periodically supplied me with problems.
The most prevalent is with draining. i.e. the tub is still full of water at the end of a cycle.
The washer is in a separated part of the house and I do not hear or smell the issues as they occur so I am left with the final result. 

I have troubleshooting skills.  I worked as a maintenance technician for AMD in a previous life, however it has been 20+ years since I have had to work on a home appliance. 

I am asking for a general area to look into for this issue, I do not have much "spare" time to try and hunt an peck my way to the problem. I thought would ask more experienced minds where to look. 

Here we go: (I started the timer while I was removing the wet clothes, draining the tub and have wedged a 'L' bracket into the lid switch)

1) There is a whirring sound coming from the lower portion of the washer during several stages of the timer. My guess it is the motor trying to agitate and spin, because the tub is already full of water.
2) Once I remove enough clothes, the valves open trying to fill to the correct level, I move the load size switch to a smaller load and the valves close.
3) The timer continues throught the entire cycle.
4) The tub does not spin and the agitator does not agitate.
5) I still have a tub of water.

Usually I would go for the control board because of multiple device failures. However, I feel that the motor is still running and I hear relays clicking.

To the best of my knowledge the motor does not assist in the draining of the tub.

Please correct me if I am mistaken.

My guess is my draining problem caused the motor/transmission to fail.

Any assistace would be helpful.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Tilt machine backwards and eyeball underneath for broken belt. Belt also runs pump.

Thank you jambatt, for some reason I thought that washers had gone direct drive.  Indeed the belt was not broken but off completely.  It looks like the pump/tensioner seems to have lost it's tension.  Does anyone have a exploded view of this model so that I can determine how to get in to see why the belt came loose?

check the sides of the belt for wear, if it has a sheen to it then replace it. Also make sure there isn't any debris under the machine. The exposed belt system will grab anything that makes itself under the washer and through the belt off.

Thanks a bunch y'all. 

Pegi, the link to the exploded views helped greatly.

appl.tech.29501, that was part of my next question. 

There was belt shedding under the washer.  Does that usually occur? Should I clean the pulleys prior to adding the new belt?  Should I get a new spring assy. for the motor for more/factory tension?

I reinstalled the old belt and the washer runs now.  I tried 3 places to get belt today and will try last resort prior to having Sears order me one tomorrow.

It only shreds if something else is wearing out. Normally on this machine it's the motor pulley. It's plastic and most likely to cause this problem. It's  simple to replace and not very expensive so if there is obvious signs of damage to the belt I recommend that you replace the pulley as well.

Hello all,

Same washer.....  symptoms, will not drain causing wet clothes at end of cycle with soap suds.  After replacing belt, and Washer Transmission pulley & bearing repair kit there is still an issue with it draining.  As I watch the cycles when it goes into drain and spin either the valve or pump are not engaging.  I can "toggle" the lid switch and the pump engages.  When I say "toggle" I pull and replace the screwdriver in under a second.   Looking back a post there was a suggestion to replace the motor pulley, however when I search for that part number I only find replacement motors.  Does anyone have any suggestions or an idea on where can find a pulley and not a hundred dollar motor?

Thanks for all of your previous help.
