Washer fills with water , then shuts off , doesn't move to another cycle

Hi, I have a Maytag washer thats about 10 years old. It is Model #LAT2915AAE. I can turn the dial on the Timer switch , and it fills with water, then once the water level has reached the desired level the machine shuts off, I dont feel its the timer switch , but may be the Lid Switch, or the Check switch,or water level switch, could it be the overload protector?Ive tried to reset the overload protector by unplugging the machine. Does anyone have any info, suggestions or recommendations, thanks.

Since you know about the lid and check switches, they are located under the splash (control)panel. unplug the machine and remove the screws holding the panel on. Using a meter check the switches for continuity and replace if they've gone bad.

Maytag washer (LAT7400AAV)shuts off during rinse cycle

The machine control board is programmed to allow a maximum continous fill time of six minutes
or an accumulated fill time of 8 minutes for each full wash cycle.
If the required fill time exceeds the time limit, the washer will shut down.
This is to prevent flooding in the event there is a loose hose clamp or damaged air dome hose.
Check the incoming water lines for a minimum pressure of 20 psi.
If lower, the customer can use smaller clothes loads and reduce the pressure to 10 psi.
An alternative solution would be to change the plastic inlet screens to metal screened washers
and remove the nozzle extender found in the water valve inlet hose near the dispener inlet."

Will not turn on . started filled with water then shut off and will not power up now. it still has water in machine this washer is a little over one year old .

Sounds like the timer motor didnt engage. Soon as the fill switch activates, when its full, the timer motor advances forward and starts the cycle. Since the water stops when full. Then part of the switch is working. The one that is nc at same time the one that is no engages. Try advancing the dial couple clicks into the cyckle then pull back out.

Maytag washer will not agitate

A Maytag A412 is well over 20 years old....
Best guess is a corroded upper drive shaft, the one that the agitator is mounted on. Certainly it can be called a transmission problem.

Washer doesn't stay running. filled with water, then shut down then filled some more and now stuck doing nothing. If push start button if runs for about 5 seconds then shuts off. 10 years old.

For being 10 years old...I'd say R.I.P Neptune. A 10-year-old dryer is going to cost you more in repairs than the cost of a new machine! And even if it is cheap enough to fix, the parts may be no longer available. I used to work at the Harrisburg PA Sears Parts/Service me...I know.

Washer stopped at the drain cycle Model LSR8233JQ1

Could be either a bad lid switch or a bad water valve.
Set the timer dial to SPIN and turn the machine on.
If it spins the lid switch is OK. If it does not spin the lid switch must be replaced.
Next,set the timer dial on a wash cycle and set the water temperature knob to COLD water. If it fills,the lid switch is bad. If it does not fill the water valve is bad or the cold screen filter is clogged.
If the COLD does not fill,turn off the cold water faucet. Remove the cold water hose from the machine water valve and check for a clooged screen.
If it does not fill with COLD water and the screen is clear,replace the water valve.
