Question about Maytag Washing Machines
This could be one of three things, 1. Rinse hold (an option to save the washing sitting crumpled when you are out) release the rinse hold button and it will spin.
2. You have a blocked drain or uneven load (if a washing machine spins with a full load of water in it it would dance around your kitchen and eventually break apart the weight is too much, it has to remove the water to a level within a set time or it will stop, or if its a uneven load it will attempet 3-4 times start a spin.
3. your motor brushes are worn (brushes last around 2-3 years depending on use) or board failure, first signs of this can be it will not spin, then it will not rotate at all try to spin it with no load (no washing) then add a couple of wet towels. if no spin it could be either of the two best way to check the brushes is to remove them and check the length they start around an inch long.
Always isolate the electrical supply when removing things from the machine.
