My Maytag LC W/D Combo is cycling (meaning the timer and control unit is winding down the minutes and the the various cycles) However, the washer is not spinning (or washing potentially) I got there when it should have been spinning but it wasn't; however, the "SPIN" cycle light was on and the time counter was winding down but no spin. It seems the motor is not getting a signal or any power to spin. At this point, I know it began to wash but I left so I do not know at what point it stopped.
I believe the problem was caused because I over loaded it.
I checked what I believe to be the "motor relay" attached on the LEFT side panel (above the other relay that is clear or see through). I opened it and nothing seems out of order (burned/stuck). The inside reminded me of the points on my old VW distributor cap. I also performed a continuity test with my tester and everything seems to work. I ran a full cycle and watched both relays and the clear relay DOES NOT do anything but nothing seems burned, stuck or seemingly out of order. The black relay without the cover, seems to make the connections its supposed to as the machine cycles, opened and closed when it should, which leads me to believe that this relay may be okay, maybe its the clear relay...
I smelled the motor and it did NOT smell like it had suffered any...
Thank you in advance.
