Maytag Performa Washer won't spin properly


Premium Member

Model Number PAVT910AWW It washes fine, rinses fine, but during the spin cycle it will overheat the motor and cause the motor to stop. When this happens it will do nothing. After the motor cools down it will restart to spin until it heats up enough and then it stops again. When I try and spin the basket by hand it is very hard to turn. It spins fairly free and easy in the wrong direction, but when I try to spin it in the direction the washer spins it is real hard. Any help would be greatly appreciated.:(
