We filled our washer, and walked away while it was filling. When we returned, the water was filled to the regular area but the timer had stopped as well as any movement from there on. The outlet has power but the washer has no reaction when pulling out the nob.....Help! Any ideas as to where to start?

Re: Washer has no action at all
Most likely the problem with your washer is the 10amps fuse and/or the lid switch. They both are located inside the control panel. Unplug the power cord, then remove three screws ot top of the control panel and pull it toward yourself. Behind the control panel you will see the glass fuse. Using simple multimeter, check the fuse for continuity (pull it out of the holder first). If no continuity, replace the fuse. You can buy at any hardware store. If there is a continuity, then the problem is a bad lid which. I would recommend to replace the lid switch in any case.

You will need to check you washer drain hose and make sure it is only inserted into your house drain pipe in the wall no deeper than 4-6 inches, alternately your house drain needs to be as high as the top of the washer lid. Be sure to secure your drain line from the washer to one of the water shut off fittings with a zip tie. You are most likely experiencing a siphon action because the washer hose is inserted too deep in the house drain. Pleazer Appliance...
You put it in right away it will not go into the washer until the first rinse unless you fill it above the line on the dispenser. It works off a siffoning action. When it comes to the first rinse the washer puts water into that dispenser. It then overflows into your washer. Also dillute your softener when you put it in the dispenser but dont fill it above the line or else the softener will go into the washer
Have you taken the hose off of the back of the washer and checked to see if you are getting water to that point. Also check the inlet screen on the fill valve to see if it is clean.. You may need to replace the fill valve. There may be a screen in the inlet of the hose at the shut off valves.....So check both ends of the washer hose..... I would check the hoses first before I would replace the fill valve....Hope this helps
I found that WasherFresh worked better then the Affresh. What I really did not like is you cannot touch the Affresh tablets, WasherFresh is contained in a pouch and is not harmful to touch, because of the disolving pouch containing the chemicals. Also after reading the package the chemicals are not harmful to the environment.
WasherFresh removed the odor causing buildup and I now use it monthly as a preventive maintenance.
The leaks in a washing machine could be coming from many different places in the washer.
The first place you need to check is behind the washer, check the two fill hoses and the water mixing valve.
The next thing to do is to remove the front panel, set the washer on the regular cycle and turn it on to start filling.
a drop light and check all the hoses under the washer as the washer is
filling. Make sure to keep your hands away from any moving parts.
the hoses are ok, check the pump for leaks. When the bearings in the
pump wear out, that is when the pump will get noisy and that could
cause your Maytag top load washing machine water leaks.
place that the washer could leak water from, is the stem & seal on
the holding tank. When washer leaks water from the stem & seal, the
water leaks down the center of the transmission.
When the stem
& seal need to be replace, the tub bearing has to be replace at the
same time. This is an expensive repair if you have to pay someone to do
it. If you do it yourself it will cost you about $110
While I do agree with eagle338 that water could be leaking from the fill hoses and the pump area, the rest of the instructions apply more for a top load Maytag washer, instead of the front load Whirlpool washer you reported.
Most likely you will have a hole in the front boot area (grey rubber seal around where the door seats). If you find such a leak, send me a note back and I'll write you up a how to to change it out.
The second most common source of leaks come from holes in the tub. This is the white outer part that holds most of the water in the machine. You will easily be able to see it when you remove the panel as listed above in the clarification instructions.
On rarer occasions, you can have something stuck in the fill tube that goes from the dispenser to the tub. Somehow small items become lodged in there. There will be a water inlet about the 10 o'clock position of your boot (grey rubber seal). Probe gently in there with your finger to see if a sock or similiar item got spun into this area.
