I have 2 problems on a Maytag Topload Legacy Series Washer:
1) When I wash a heavy load (such as towels), I notice they are dripping wet (not spun dry) after the cycle completes. Could it be the Belt, Thrust Pulley or something else? :-\
2) The Washer won't Agitate or Spin on one Cycle and the Timer won't advance (Timer makes a buzzing/humming noise). Could it be the Timer or 2-Speed Drive Motor? :-\
