maytag washer won't spin, belt is burning


My washer wouldn't spin and was making screeching noise, I replaced the belt and it was still very loud, it ran through the spin cylce once but now wont work again. I can smell burnt rubber when it tried to run. It is a maytag 5000aww about 10 yrs old.

Our last Maytag did the same thing, I tightened the spring up on the motor that puts tension on the belt and it solved the problem. That may be worth a try.
