Question Maytag washer Model A612 agitator not moving

I have a cerca 1990 washer and the agitator stops moving when I put alot of clothes in it. I used to be able to put alot of clothes in it, but not any longer. It sounds strange, a quiet squeel, and there is a strong burning rubber smell. If I take cloths out, the agitator begins moving and it sounds normal again. Any idea what part is failing?

sounds like the belt is stretched and/or worn. tilt up the machine and look underneath. The belt(s) are located at the bottom of the machine. The mounting on the motor in your washer is spring loaded to put tension on the belt. You should check to make sure the motor is tensioning the belt properly.
