SOURCE: washer wont rinse

we had the same problem with ours....nd means not draining and that means that there is something, probably coins stuck in your drain hose. pull the drain hose out and check it for change and make sure something isn't stuck.

SOURCE: My Maytag washer is about 15 years old. Suddenly

Without a model number, but with the age, I can only assume that this is a Dependable Drive wash system.

This system utilizes a drive belt and a pump belt and it is recommended they be replaced together after every13 years of normal use. They are very simple to install with no teardown or tools needed. The belts have installation instructions printed on the package.

1. Drive Belt

2. Pump Belt

The pump belt must be adjusted to the tension requirements written on the package. See link below.

3. Parts breakdown/disassembly procedures.

Other issues could also cause the same symptoms but the belts at this age is the 1st suspect.

SOURCE: load off balance error dc. Wont rinse or spin

Hello nikimiguel,

I’m an Owner like you I own the FAV6800AW and have helped many folks on this and other forums with this issue.

You are experiencing a classic malfunction of the One-Way Roller clutch bearings in the Clutch Pulley assembly. It sounds like you are in the early stages of the issue. I have put together a step by step maintenance process to clean up and re-lube the One-Way Roller clutches in the Clutch Pulley assembly see this post Clutch Fix Post for what’s involved. Look on the right top back of your Console. If you can give me the first two numbers of your serial number i.e. 10, 11,12, tru 17. That will let me know if your machine will use an Upper One-Way Roller clutch bearing ring. Mechanical skill sets to perform Clutch maintenance or replacement are basic, anyone can do this it’s just a tight work area. Your option is to DIY or call in a repair service. I would ballpark the repair cost at around $300 if they know what is wrong and how to fix. DIY the fix it and you may need a a can of WD-40 and Slick 59 One Lube cost around $10 if the One-Way Roller just need to be cleaned up and re-lubed. If the Clutch pulley needs to be replaced I will show you a site where you can purchase for around $60 delivered to the house.

See this most recent post of a forum member who is back in service with my process.

SOURCE: Maytag Performa does not rinse well even on second

I had the same problem. It was a buildup of gunk (don't know how else to describe it) in the fabric softner dispenser. I also had a build up of detergent around the upper rim of the basket inside the washer and caught up underneath the agitator. I took my machine apart and scrubbed it all out.
Here is the way to get it cleaned out.

  • Remove the fabric softener dispenser from the top of the agitator.
  • With a 7/16 socket, remove the bolt inside the agitator.
  • Lift the agitator up and out of the basket. This may require a little force.
I use a small putty knife to scrap the buildup then use a rag to wipe the film off. Make sure to clean the fabric dispenser really well. There are small holes in the bottom of it and if they are clogged up, the fabric softener cannot disperse well and when the machine goes into the spin cycle, it will tend to fling the softener under the rim of the basket where it will buildup over time and leave spots on your clothes.
If you need to know anything further, please don't hesitate to let me know.

Maytag washer Mod # ymhwe201wy00 flashing SDU & SU. What does this mean please? Would this have anything to do with the door not always opening?

I'm not aware of a SDU error for Maytag washers. However, Sd and SUD are common errors. These indicate excess suds in the washer. The unit will not unlock the door until the rinse cycle removes the detergent unless you hit cancel. (The washer does pause while it waits for the foam to subside.)

The problem can be caused by using too much detergent or a non-HE detergent. It can also be triggered by a constriction in the drain system. Check your drain hose and standpipe for kinks or any clogs. Check the drain pump filter trap and pump area for foreign objects. See for images of what how the parts are arranged in the washer. (You need to take off the back panel to reach the drain pump. Make sure to have a bucket handy to catch water coming out of the unit.)

You can run the washer while it is empty to rinse any excess soap out of the unit. (Obviously do not add more detergent for the cycle.)

I hope this helps.

My Maytag Neptune MAH8700AWW washer when in the spin dry mode shuts down with a suds error?

Check your drain hose for kinks or blockages, check filter and pump for blockages, check wire harness connections to pump, pressure switch and CCU.
I machine will start- If too much detergent was used, run the unit through a Rinse/ Spin cycle then a Normal cycle without adding any detergent. This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.

Maytag Auto Load-Sensing Washer does not fill with enough water to wash the clothes. How do I get around this?

Did you ever get an answer - all I see are ads :-(

We have the same problem. Not enough water to rinse - even with extra rinse selected. Even our laundry comes out the color of the laundry detergent. I'm sure this is a result of government regulations to reduce water usage. We'll contact Maytag tomorrow.
