Tub won't agitate MAVT546EWW Maytag Maytag laundry


A follow up to the above post is that I pulled the belt off so the motor didn't have any drag on it and tried to run just a spin cycle. The experience was the same. The motor kicks on and sounds like its under considerable burden. Makes this sound for just a few seconds, then the sound, a spark and smoke. I'm thinking it's the motor at this point. Interested in other's thoughts.

I own the MAVT546EWW agitating problems MAVT546EWW Maytag Maytag laundry


Thanks for the inquiry and for using
Sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the washer, I know how frustrating it is to have just completed a repair to have another one pop up behind it.
This sounds like an issue with the lid switch. If the switch is on its way out or there is an issue with the lever for the switch, it would fill and drain, but would not agitate. 
I would check the switch and lever and make sure they aren't damaged, and if so, they would need replacement. 
Hope this helps and thanks for using We appreciate your business.
