Question about Washing Machines
I have never had a problem with this washing machine ever, but this morning when I turned it on to start it just started agitating without any water. I moved the dial to rinse only, same thing. I moved the dial to spin, nothing. I moved the dial to off and turned it on for a few minutes. I moved it back to start a cycle and it just started agitating with no water again.
Your water level switch is defective. It is generally located below the tub. It is jammed closed and the machine thinks it has water in it when it does not.

it sounds like the dogs are worn. try twisting the agitator post by hand,it should move freely in one direction then lock up going the other.its a pretty easy fix if they are.pry off the top of the agitator post off then remove the cap inside,there is a bolt that holds the post down.i'm pretty sure it's 7/16 in. once the bolt is loose,lift the whole agitator out of machine and with your hand inside post turn it upside downand let the dog holder slide out.watch how the dogs fit into the holder, replace with new dogs and reverse the removal process.
if the machine wont spin, check the lid switch. thats usually the cause of a no spin situation.other than that a wet vac is your best bet.hope that helps.

SOURCE: Washer doesn't agitate
sounds like your washer went mellow on you(doesn't get agitated, right)?
ok. enough humor.
sounds like there's a problem with the motor/belt/control board in that order

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.

I just replaced the trans in my maytag.if the washer is less than 5 years old trans is covered under warranty. but here is the kicker, labor and thrush bearing is not. trans cost is about 300.00 and labor is about the same. a new washer is about 450.00 So if you know someone who can do trans.[like for free] if not buy a new one. Good Luck

SOURCE: Will not spin on any rinse cycle
Hi, This washer does not have a belt. While the washer is agitating, if you lift the lid will it stop? Some models will agitate but not spin if the lid is up. It sounds to me like the lid switch might be going bad.
If you will get me a model #, I can look this up for you and give you a better idea.
