    got a maytag front loader. goes through the program ok unitl 9mins remaining when the program sticks. The display shows rinse/spin. Water still in the tub but no action at all. Tub doesnt turn and pump not running. pump works during wash/rinse cycle and intermediate spin during rinses works. Stripped pump down and verything clear.

    Thanks guys for the help. I'm going to have a look at the MCU first. For info, The door wont open and need to switch the power off and let the WAXmotor release before i can open the door. the tub is still full of water and the pump doesn't even try to run.

    the machine in question is a coin op version so i'll be able to swap the MCU with the machine next to it to see if the fault transfers over.

    By the way, I dont really do Maytags, whirlpool etc. mainly do larger, IPSO, primus and specialise in Drycleaners so if you need any help in that area, let me know.

Sounds like a communication error, there is a ccu on top and a mcu on the bottom, basically a computer and a motor control unit. When there is a problem of this nature I would replace the mcu. I have seen a increase in this problem. This unit is built by Whirlpool and is the same as the duet and kenmore he3.

Is it possible to open the door while the machine stays at rest? if so it could be one of your crease guard or rinse hold options selected. (normally in a button cluster on the front panel. deselect and try again.

Check your carbon brushes, on agitate the machine does not need a lot of contact with brushes, but underload (i.e rinse /spin) contact is vital.
Check them for wear

Machine worked fine to start with . Then stopped. Will fill water but drum wont turn on a wash cycle. And wont spin on spin cycle.But Belt seems fine. Can you help.

The pump needs to be replaced. The pump controls the agitation for the wash cycle, also controls the tub for draining & spinning after the wash & rinse cycle. The belt has nothing to do with it. Pump is very simple to remove & replace, and not too expensive, it's plastic.

Depending on your model pushing soil level and spin speed at the same time then hitting the power button will start it in diagnostic mode from here out pushing start will check its features, door lock, low spin, high spin, pre wash, wash, bleach, softener, rinse, drain, spin...ext

The water wont drain from my machine from the wash

What you need to do is check the pump is getting a feed to it
Select a spin cycle, and with a test meter, test for voltage across the pump terminals, if you are getting a feed, and the pump is working ok, then you obviously have a blockage beyond the pump.
If no voltage then could be a broken wire, or a faulty programmer/board.
Hope this helps.

Drum not turning despite belt ok and motor ok, lots of sediment from drainage pipe

check the pump/impeller for blockage.

LG WD-8013F wont spin

Hi deppgirl,
I checked the lint filter at the front bottom left hand side and it was full of junk.  Once emptied it worked a treat.  Pull the flap down and turn the large knob anti-clockwise and pull to remove.  Good luck.
