Question about Maytag MAT12CS Top Load Washer

2 Answers

Maytag MAT12CSDAW My coin-op top loading washer became unbalanced in the final spin and one of the tenants pulled the plug. How can I reset this washer- pushing in the coin tray (usual coinless start) does not seem to help. Is there a hidden reset button? Thanks

Re: Maytag MAT12CSDAW

Try the following on a top loading washer. Prior to opening the lid, find the tiny switch that engages/disengages the water upon lid opening and closing (found on the back right corner of my model).  This is your target! Open the lid. Push the washer drum to the back to access the "real switch" underneath the lid/washer housing.   The switch can be pushed back and forward (this is how it engages/disengages water) or pulled slightly down.  Pull the switch down and close the lid. You are good to go!  Hope this helps!

Leep, open the hatch that the timer sits under. You will see the timer and actuator that the coin tray pushes to start the wash cycle. You can rotate this cam clockwise until it gets to it's home position, ususally right around the 12:00 position. Good luck

I have a maytag washer i bought in 97. It became unbalanced well my husband fixed it and everytime it goes on the spin cycle it gets unbalanced again and makes a very loud noise

If the washer is truly balances (check with a level to be sure) you might just have an unbalanced load. When filling your machine with laundry, think of the tank as a big circle divided into four pie slices. Make sure you fill each of the four slices evenly. This should help,

Error code UL with 12 minutes remaing on each load


This error code indicates that an unbalanced load is detected.

if the load is unbalanced, the washer will display this code while attempting to balance the load at the end of the wash cycle and before the final spin. If the code remains and the wash cycle dial is flashing after the recovery routine has stopped, open lid and redistribute the load. Close lid and press Start/Pause.

If the washer is not level, the washer may be more sensitive to unbalanced loads. The washer must be level from side to side and from front to back. The front and rear feet must be in firm contact with the floor. Make sure the locknuts are tightened.

If Power/Cancel or Pause/Cancel does not work
Unplug the washer or disconnect the power for one minute.
Plug in the washer or reconnect the power.
Re-select the cycle and press Start/Pause.

Leak from maytag top load coin machine during spin drain cycle only

Possible that you would have a tub seal leak if it is only noticable during spin cycle. Possible that it "drips" slightly while in agitation, but not enough to notice it. While in spin mode you have a lot more parts moving as well as a lot more water pressure on the seal itself. Pump could also be leaking, but highly doubtful since it would leak a constant amount at all times. Good Luck!!! Jim
