Maytag washer drum very tight.


Maytag MAV6300AW washer. I had a pipe break in the house and it ran for 2 weeks. There never was standing water in the house but carpet was soaked and extreme humidity. Just got house put back together and hooked up washer today. All seemed fine until I realized the drum was not turning. It is not locked solid, I can move it about an inch in either direction. The agitator works, does that mean the motor is ok or does it not run the agitator? Any ideas what could have happened, I am assuming it has to do with the humidity?

Yes, it does not spin. I can spin my old Hot point very easy but it is 30 yrs old.

the brake probably swelled up from the moisture, may just need more time to dry out.
