Our Maytag LAT8604AAE will not finish its spin cycle with a full tub of water. I had a similar problem one month ago and the problem at that time was the lid switch. I the witch back to the parts store and they tested the switches and the fuse on the lid switch assemplby board and the recently purcahsed part is showing good. I tried to manually spin the agitator but could only move it an inch or so in either direction. If the lid switch tests out OK what then could the issue possibly be? A motor or transmission? The machine is about 11 years old and our family puts it to heavy use. As simple observation, the lid switch went bad with aa heavy load of bedding and sheets. this time it failed with sheets and beach towels from a day at the pool. Could the heavy load be causing this issue? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
