SOURCE: will nt agitate

Check the following:

It doesn't agitate If your washer doesn't agitate, check these:

Lid switch
Motor coupler
Belts
Clutch
Drive motor
Drive pulleys
Transmission
Agitator
Lid switch If the lid switch is defective, the washing machine may not agitate or function at all. The switch is inside the washing machine main housing near the door frame. Often you have to raise or open the top or front of the washing machine to get to the switch. If it's defective, you need to replace it.

Motor coupler Many washers produced by Whirlpool® use a small, relatively inexpensive motor coupling. It's plastic and rubber and is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. If this happens, you need to completely replace it.

Belts Many washing machines have one or two belts. If a belt is broken or badly worn, you need to replace it with a genuine belt from the manufacturer. (Some washing machine belts are designed with special characteristics not found in automotive belts.)

Clutch If your washer was made by GE®, it may use a clutch for agitating the clothes. As the clutch wears out, it may prevent the washer from agitating well or at all. If the clutch is worn, you need to replace it. For this job, you probably want to hire a qualified appliance repair technician.

Drive motor Many washer brands use a reversing motor. For agitation the motor runs in one direction, for spinning and draining, the other. It's possible for a motor to burn out in one direction and continue to operate in the other. If this happens, you need to replace the entire motor.

Drive pulleys The motor or transmission drive pulley may be worn and unable to turn the drive belt. If so, replace the pulley.

Transmission The transmission could have either of these problems:

  • Older washers produced by Whirlpool® have a transmission with an electro-mechanical shifter. If the shifter becomes even partially defective, the unit may not agitate properly or at all.


  • The transmission may have a worn or broken gear, or some other internal problem.


If you suspect a transmission problem, you may have to call a qualified appliance repair technician to repair it.

Agitator The inside of the agitator--where the transmission shaft attaches--can become worn, and strip out the spline that allows the agitator to properly grip the shaft. Then the transmission shaft rotates back and forth as it should, but the agitator doesn't move properly. If this happens, you may need to replace the agitator and/or the transmission spline.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Washer Wont Spin Water Off

I have a maytag too and this is a easy one and you will be so relieved when you get this done!! and your wife is going to love you toooo !! just unplug the machine 1ST then go to the back uncscrew the back panel right at the bottom of the machine is a pump its got a hose from the tub into the pump and then it leaves the pump into another hose to which leaves your home.... you can unbolt this.. take the hoses loose on both ends . Next take that the drain and hoses and wash them out / I found only a piece of paper clip around the little propeller of course i had to replace the pump but really its not that expensive. I got mine on line ebay.... like $ 20.00 but if you are lucky then you can clean that good. I even went as far as taking it apart a total of 10 minutes tops, just to find out what could be letting this not spin.... maybe yours wont be so tramatic but if it is be relieved when you know it was this simple to fix !!! good luck to you and yours.

SOURCE: Washer won't stop filling with water.

not really but you may want to take the back off enough to follow the clear air hose back there into the back of the control panel and either blow through it or use a small blast of compressed air to clear the cup that attaches to the tub. Powder detergents tend to block this line and your pressure switch can't detect the pressure anymore so the switch is fooled and let's the water inlet valves continue till it overflows try that and you may be surprised at it's results. Good luck. If that doesn't do it then it's the switch but i'm pretty sure it will fix ya.

Bosch SHE44C06UC/22 won't fill with water even though you hear water running somewhere.


Check to make sure there is no residual water underneath the unit, they have a flood sensor and if it is picking up water in the motor area it won;t run.

Washer won't fill


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Maytag bravos doesn't use enough water


see this causes and fix it.
God bless you
Water comes in very slow This is usually a water valve problem or an inlet screen blocked. 1st check your inlet screens of your water valve. Turn your house water valve off to the washer, undo the fill hoses and inside the water valve, you will see a silver screen. If the screen is filled with water deposits, clean it out and re-install into valve. Don't forget to check your fill hoses also, some hoses come with screens that also may be clogged. Your cold water valve usually clogs before the hot water valve, all that sediment settles in your hot water tank and not in the screens. If you are on a well system, your screens usually clog more often. If your screens are good, then most likely your water valve needs replacing.

Dishwasher won't fill with water


Hi

When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

The cold water just trickles into the machine, the hot water fills fine. I removed the hose from the wall and cleaned that filter. Is there another filter I can clean out?


Hello klj... Unscrew the cold hose from both ends and run a wire through the entire length to remove any blockage anywhere. Also check the connection locations looking for calcification of some kind. If it's clean, you probably have a defective water-inlet valve. If so, you need to replace the valve. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!
