Washer would not stop

When I load & starts the washer (white or color), the washer rotating timer would & washer to continues rotate & would not stop. Most of the time it stops when its about to rinse. I would manually move the time forward little by little to finish rinse & spin. Tried dropping a little oil, but problem persists. 1 time I left it & thinking it would stop anyway. It was still running after 3 hrs when I came back.

    I never replaced the timer. I posted the problem in 2006 and to date it is still a problem. But in 2 years of using the washer, I found out that it only happens during summer time and only on the white was (not the color). Weird symptom, so I wash the whites using the color mode during summer. I may keep doing this till I find time to open it up or replace the washer all together.

There is a little motor that drive the timer and thats the problem, maybe you can find some tech to change the motor only, but if not, you may change the timer, any way is better to chage the timer for a new one...good luck

Washer will not shut off.

sounds like the final phase is not being registered on the timer or the computer chip may need to have a service tech diagnose but it isn't a complex problem just an annoying one, the final phase is a cool down cycle and also you may need to see if you have the settings for cotton clothes, the dryer will tumble them so as not to let them wrinkle. hope this helps

Washer doesn't complete spin cycle, it stops with a barrel full of water. It doesn't matter if it's set on extra rinse or not.

The wheel on the botton has a plastic white insert that will lift or retract the gear stem. Depending on the ratation of the motor this will pull or retact that stem. During spin cysle, the wheel rotates CCW and pulls that stem out(towards the floor). This action should disengage the brake and also start rotating the tum. Remove power, remove the belt and rotate wheel manually and see if the empty tub spins. If not, remove the wheel and take care to not drop all the washers and bearings. Once removed take some vice grips and yank on that gear stem until the brake mechanisn is released. That stem should only need to move a few mm maybe 5-10. Once fully reassembled if this continues to happen, get a new pully assembly.

Washer stops during rinse cycle and isn't easily restartable....

Sounds like the contacts in the timer has a problem. Unplug washer. Remove the back of the washer and spray WD40 in the timer. Put towels around and under to to collect excess runoff.
Rrotate washer dial 25 times and spray some more wd40. Rotate 25 times again. Do a wash load. If it works put everting back together.

Maytag mav6200aww washing machine doesn't rinse clothes

If you say this only happens on the Colors and Whites cycle i dont see what the lid switch or balance sensor (if your washer has one) would have to do with it. It does seem like it has something to do with the timer,,, it really sounds like maybe the (Colors & Whites) section of the timer is malfunctioning. Inside the timer, there are a series of gears and switches, and by slamming the lid, or tapping on the timer control knob,,, it could maybe help the damaged part of the gear move, temporarily "fixing" the problem

Washing machne problem

The help that you gave me was completely wrong. The support ring was okay. I solved my problem by buying a new timer and control knobs. The teflong 'gears' were worn out so the knobs rotated freely.

Problem Magtag TL

UC means the washer cannot spin. There's a bulletin out this.
The clutch is likely the cause of these error codes, preventing the unit from spinning freely. A new clutch was introduced in production in March 2005 to improve performance and should reduce these error codes.

1. Visual verification can be made of a malfunctioning clutch by observing the lifter operation in spin. The lifters will rotate up to one complete rotation just prior to the tub starting to spin counter clockwise. Should the lifters continue to rotate while the tub spins, examination of the clutch will be necessary.

2. Inspect the 14 wire plug in the control console for loose red\white- pink- blue\white from the P3 connector. Also inspect the wires and connection point on the Tub Displacement Sensor for corrosion. Measure from PK to Wh/Bu at the P3 connector. The voltage should be approximately 1.5vdc when the tub is centered, 3vdc when the tub is pushed to the right rear of
the cabinet and 0vdc to the left front. Any variances of these voltages, the 14 pin harness connection, tub displacement sensor, and sensor connector should be checked.
