You may have a locked up pump causing the motor to not run, check to see if you can turn the belts under the unit, if so then you might have a timer with a burnt contact.
hope its the pump as it is cheaper then the timer to replace.

Maytag top load washing machine repair


Hello,

It sounds like your Maytag (now owned by Whirlpool) Actuator needs to be replaced. Last year our Maytag Centennial top loading washer Model MVWC300XW0 would not drain all the water and cloths would be soaking still. Doing some online research, I came across some very helpful video regarding replacing your Actuator.

The only thing I would recommend to future installers is get your Technician Manual located just inside the case (front panel) first of your Washer. The Technician Manual is taped inside your washer in a plastic bag. Once you replace this Actuator part, I recommend that you run the Calibration cycle on your washer. It is needed anytime you replace a motor, motherboard or pump.

Here are two videos describing how to change/replace the Actuator but these videos are basically for the MVWC300XW0 model. I'm sure if you search for your model, there will be other videos as well.

Two videos on how to replace your Actuator:
1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVjTY-Hj4jw
2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yTHryoT78pA (This is video that I viewed the most)

Best of Luck!

Model MAH 7800 drain pump will not run, door locks, tub spins, water drains by gravity


Well your drain pump needs attention for sure. There could be an object lodged against propellers or it may need to be relaced. Try unplugging the connector that goes to the pump and plugging back in. Also try tapping the the motor part of the drain assembly while in spin cycle before replacing. Good luck.

I have a Kenmore top loading washer model #110 and won't agitate


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer.

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getModel!retrieve.pd?pop=true&modelNumber=110.23912100

Also see the Whirlpool (Kenmore) Service Manual for top load, direct drive washers.

https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf


The first thing I'd try is using a different cycle. If the washer works as it should, the problem points to the timer.

I'd also check to make sure that when replacing the switch, the connections to the timer haven't come loose.

Since you've replaced the Lid Switch, the motor has power for the drain and spin cycles.

These washers use a reversing motor. The motor turns one way for agitating and reverses for the drain and spin.

Since you cannot hear anything when it is supposed to be agitating, the problem does point to the timer or motor.

Maytag top loading washer will not agitate


My rule of thumb: Take what you paid for the washer new and divide by number of years without repairs. That is your cost per year for the washer. If the repair will get you another year and is less than the number above do the repair. If you have done more than 2 major repairs in a year it is time to think new. eric

Maytag top loading washer won't agate. Instead it fills with water and spins, then drains, fills for the rinse and spins. Thanks Bill


Open your control panel.
Disconnect then reconnect your timer wiring harness.
If this does not correct the problem,replace the timer.

Washer not spinning or draining


Same problem.  Water wouldn't drain, no trouble codes, door wouldn't unlock.  When the Rinse and Spin cycle or Drain cycle was selected all I got was a growling humm from the pump.  Clued in by the above postings I pulled the washer away from the wall, tipped it back so it leaned against the wall with the bottom fully exposed and removed the plastic panel covering the bottom (underneath - 4 screws) of the machine.  The small pump was just where these postings said it would be, top right of the bottom opening. Disconnect the two drain hoses from the pump. Mine were connected with hose clamps that I removed with just my thumb and fore-finger.  I had two quarters AND a nickel lodged inside the pump and was able to coax them out without removing the pump. Replaced the hoses and bottom panel, tipped upright and I was back in business - didn't even have to unplug (Its never a bad idea to do so) or disconnect the water hoses.  
  • Total time spent: including searching for these posts and random dead-end trouble shooting - 1.5 hours.
  • Tools: 1 Phillips screwdriver.

MAYTAG NEPTUNE TL WASHER


If you are not getting any error codes pertaining to the door lock and you are getting wash and rinse then the problem would seem to be that the water is not draining. Machine will not go into SPIN if the pressure switch senses that there is still water in the basket.
