My Maytag washing machine, model#sav405daww, doesn't spin on any wash cycle. The pulley on the motor turns and the belt is intact. All of the other cycles work including agitate.

Try putting something heavy (e.g. a large, full bottle/box of laundry detergent) on top of the machine (if its a top loader). I had the same problem with a top loader that has a latch. You can't open the lid, until a minute after the agitation stops, its a safety feature. Somehow I discovered that if something heavy was on the lid, right above the latch, it worked. Good Luck.

Hi, My mother's washer had that problem and it was a clog in the drain hose. There wasn't anyplace for the water to go, so it wouldn't spin the water out. We got rid of the clog and it works great. Loretta (01/05/2009)

Mine acted that way once long ago and it was as simple as a kink in the hose that wasn't noticeable until it tried to drain the water and spin! It cost a service trip to find that out. Good Luck! (01/06/2009)
Mine throws out the water, goes through all the cycles just won't spin. Sounds like if it's spinning but it's not. (02/20/2009)
