Washer fills, but won't start cycle, or stops in middle of cycle

My aging top-loading Magic Chef washer will fill, then either (a) not start, or (b) start, then stop working during the cycle, even though the timer continues ticking through to the cycle's end. For a while I could bypass this by monkeying forward & reverse with the dial to start the cycle, but that method stopped working eventually. This began with the Regular cycle, so I switched to using the Perm Press cycle. After a few months, the PP cycle had the same problem, so now I'm using the Gentle cycle. Any ideas re: why the Reg & PP cycles won't continue past filling? Thanks!

It appears your timer/main controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Washer fills w/ water, but will not stop filling. Therefore it never goes into the agitation cycle. Any help greatly appreciated!


Level control valve is bad or line came off it or a hole in line. But it's likely the valve. It could be that you can adjust it and it will work at one level only. it has a screw where you can do that. Just take the panel off and you will see what I mean.

Stops in the middle of wash cycle


Hi!

If the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.
Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

MAGIC CHEF 5 YRS OLD WONT AGITATE


Ours started doing the very same thing. I took the top off and found that a mouse had chewed a hole in the vacuum tube. I replaced it with a 3/16" ID small engine gas line hose I bought at local implement dealer. Works like a charm.
