Maytag Washer won't spin out first time.

My Maytag washer will end with a tub full of water, I think soapy. When we restart the same load without doing anything( sometimes put it on the light cycle), it will spin out and finish properly.

    My washer washes through all the cycles (wash, drain, spin, rinse, spin). If I catch it before it reaches the next cycle (drain, spin) I can open the lid and the close it and it will the drain and proceed until the rinse cycle. After the rinse cycle I once again have to open the lid and close it to activate the spin cycle.

The CCU board is likely at fault see one of my discussions on this here
these boards have intermittent failures that will drive you wacky.

If the timer is advancing but won't spin out, it is possible that the spin contacts inside the timer are faulty. A technician will normally isolate and confirm this diagnosis witth a special power cord hookup to the motor. From the way you describe your complaint, I feel that a timer would correct your problem.

Hope this advice is helpful!

SOURCE: My Maytag Neptune MAH4000AWW will not finish a full cycle.

I had the same problem. I called customer support and they gave me these instructions:
Shut off the water supply to the machine, disconnect the hoses from the back of the machine. Pull out the hose and pull out the little screens and clean them with water or soak in vinegar. I was skeptical but did this and the results were amazing. Apparently if the screens get even a little "gunked" up (my screens really didn't look that bad) the machine senses the change in water pressure coming in and shuts it off. Hope this helps!

The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
Spin cycle
Siphoning
Water-inlet valve
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning: 

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component 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. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. 

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

SOURCE: Maytag Neptune Front Load Washer Model MAH4000AWW low last spin

two problems here,
your shaft seal is running on its last leg
the sound is unmistakeable and always described the same...
the water issue, you probably have a trickle leak through the cold water valve
the mixing valve is quite an easy repair, but I would have to say with all honesty, it probably time for a new machine
the hub seal is a tub replacment call
2 hrs of labor if hes good
and the tub runs around 500.00 dollars
sory for the bad news

Spinning cycle


Keeping in mind that the soap & bleach gets dispensed into your wash on the second to last rinse cycle and that most all rinse cycles are in cold water. Is your cold water valve screen plugged causing your washer to rinse poorly? Are you using the HE detergent? If not maybe the washer is sudsing up to much and having a hard time rinsing all the suds and bleach out and leaving the clothes soapy.

Fill the washer up with no clothes in it on a cold/cold wash setting does it take a long time to fill the washer up? Also when it is full and agitating is there suds in the washer?

Last suggestion is if the drain is hose is a lot higher than the top of the washer it might have a hard time draining out all of the soap water before the next load

Hi Vinod, the lock light is not on. The motor and belt seem okay; it agitates. I think lock light is supposed to come on only when tub is full. Again my manual says nothing on this!!

Maytag navigator washer not draining all the water out


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Here are some things for you to check out
Please read fully this covers a couple of different brands but it is all the same things to check ok?
When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:
Motor coupler To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle.

When that happens, you need to replace it completely. Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component. Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section.

I have a GE model# WLSR2000G2WW washer and it's not spinning out at the end of the cycle it started not spinning out when set on small load only now it's not spinning out on large load either. But if I...


I found the hose hooked to the pressure was clogged down at the tub end. So it couldn't send a signal to the switch telling it the water had pumped out and it was time to spin out, the plugged hose was holding pressure telling the washer (falsely) that the tub had water in it so it won't spin if it thinks water is still in the tub. By pulling the hose off the switch end and blowing thru it to clear the lint and soap slime that was plugging the other end it works perfect now.

Maytag top load won't drain


during spin is the tub making a slight roaring sound? if so the tub bearing is going bad causing the motor to work harder than normal causing it to heat up. this motor has a thermal protector which shuts it down , although the power to the timer remains therefore the timer still advances. this will require a new bearing and seal kit.

Maytag doesn't seem to rinse.


Try this. Run the machine set for full load, short wash. DO NOT put clothes or detergeants in the tub. Water only. Let the machine agitate for 1-2 minutes. Gently advance the timer manually untill it locks into spin. Let the machine continue to spin until it stops on its' own and begins to refill. At this point lift the lid and see if there is any access water in the tub.

Most of the time this condition is caused by a blackage in the drain line. Make sure the drain hose is not kinked in any way.

Also, there are times when I've had to removes socks and other objects from the tub to pump hose. It only take a 10% block to cause the machine to retain water.
