Maytag MAV5000AWW washer after wash cyle clothes are still to wet to put in dryer. I put thru second spin cycle clothes are then ok. I replaced the belt about 2 weeks ago which helped. I can reach inside the washer and move the drum side to side and forward & back with ease (with the machine off) is this normal? It just does not seem to spin fast enough on the first cycle. Any info in the right direction would be helpfull

 

Humblely yours

This is just a shot in the dark, but did you check the condition of the thrust bearing? I have found similar problems on Maytags and some turned out to be a loose bolt that holds on the "large belt Pully". I hope this at least gives you a place to start. p.s. Also disassy the thrust washer assy and check the condition of the little white ramp looking thingy. Sincerely, BrokenArrow:)

BrokenArrow makes a good point but let's try something simpler, check your drain to asee that it's not backing up then check the drain hose to be sure it's not kinked then check the pump itself to mke sure there isn't any GOOKUS (socks lint unmentionables). Check these things first and then we'll go from there. As far as the drum moving back and forth and side to side is normal as long as it's not banging against the sides and not kicking the out the out of balance switch

Thanks guys for your suggestions, the hoses are all good draining is not really the problem spinning is. Some times thru a normal cyle it is not spinning fast enough. after it is done I will turn it to spin at try again you can then here the difference just in the way the thing is spinning that it is working ok, A bearing would be bad all the time I would think not part of the time any other ideas.

Is your drain hose in a stand pipe? I bet it is. I also see the water in the standpipe backing up not allowing the water from the washer to be expidited from the unit fast enough, this comes to me by using my phycho ability of course:yikes:

Well sorry to say my drain hose is in the laundry tub so the backup theory kind of does not hold water (bad Pun)

I have a MAV4755AAW washer.  The clothes come out wet also.  Mine was still under warranty.  The maytag repairman came out and told me that the newer machines have weak motors because of energy conservation problems.  He could not solve the problem and said in nice words live with it.
