Washing Machine not working..?
I would check the belt, could be the motor is turning but slipping on the belt. Not sure about your model but most with most older maytag top load, the belt is located on the very bottom, underneath the machine. One belt runs both the pump and the agitator.
You will have to get the water out first!
Then tip the machine backwards far enough to inspect it. The front panel comes off with 2 screws on the front near the bottom, then hinge it out at the bottom and unhook the top clips
The older maytag top loads were about as bullet proof as you can get, I know of several that are more than 20 years old and going strong!
