Maytag A712 washer started squealing during the spin cycle. Stopped washer, clothes rearranged, started again on spin. Washer started squealing again, and saw smoke! Tried to turn transmission, and it turns with difficulty by hand. Am not sure what other steps to take to diagnose, and would happily contribute to the brew fund in exchange for some advice. Also would appreciate opinions about whether to replace machine, if transmission appears to be shot. Most humble thanks!

Yes. Also, we think the smoke was from the motor trying to turn the belt.

Remove the belt from the drain pump and turn the pump by hand in both directions.

First order of business is to remove the tub cover and check for clothes items wedged between the basket and the cover or outer tub...
As every cockroach knows , thriving on poisons is the secret of success.
