Question about Maytag Washing Machines

Open Question

Maytag mtw5870twd washer

Machine starts agitating as soon as filling begins. Also agitates while filling for rinse. During the final spin water is continuously filled leaving clothes very wet at the end of the cycle. From past experience i thought the timer was defective and replaced it with no change. My wife says it also sometimes leaves water on the floor. I am stumped can you help?

SOURCE: Won't Agitate

If you can hear the motor during the agitate cycle, the the transmission has stripped gears.

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

I had the same problem and ended up replacing the control board which solved it.  Contact Westland Sales at 800-356-0766 ext. 5 for tech support.

if it agitates in the first rinse but not he second then it may be the timer.
a little more details would help.

SOURCE: Whirlpool LSB6300PW2 Won't Agitate or Spin

if you lift andclose the lid do you hear "clicking" noise??? i bet not. simple repair, lift the lid and with a hollow shafted screwdriver(1/4in nutdriver or similliar hollow shaft implement)you fell with your hand the bottom half of the left side lid hinge. as you open and close the lid you can fell the opposing end of hinge under the top no need to dissasemble you can fell it right there. when you find it simply slip the hollow ended shaft over the hinge and apply pressure towardds the rear of unit.While doing this the top will want to close( your pushing against the hinge).. after appling slight pressure youll bend it slightly, enough to activet the lid switch mounted to the rear of the main lid assy.

No agitation on extra rinse cycle on Maytag Washing Machine MAV8557AWW


The manufacturer may have found there was little or no advantage to having agitation in the second rinse cycle so omitted it.

Agitator starts at begining of cycle before washer is full


Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.

Won't finish the final spin


Hi there,

When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:

It's the timer, if your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer never advances--or if the washer is in a spin cycle and the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.


It may be a cold-water supply problem, if the washing machine fills with water, agitates, drains, and spins, but then doesn't fill with rinse water. See There's no cold water.

Post further comments for more information ....

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Kicking out water during wash cycle - spin instead of agitation


Hi,
Try these

  1. Check the drain hose, it should be at least as high as the top of the wash tub, about 38 inches.
  2. The drain hose must sit loosely in the house drain. Do not seal the air gap around the drain hose or a siphon will occur.
  3. Check the drain control lever
  4. Test the drain control coils
  5. Check the cam bar
pls rate my suggestion..
