It appears your pump or timer has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Maytag Centennial Top Load Washer drains as it fills.


The water is probably siphoning out of the tub. Your drain pipe is either too low or the drain hose is down too far into the pipe. Take the drain hose out of the pipe and lift it high. I'll bet your problem goes away

It is your water pump. If you don't know what you are doing it could be tough.

Wont drain,spin,or agitate


You can check the drain or the filter. You will have to pull it out of the space it is now to access it. Items will get stuck in the drain clogging it.

Washer won't agitate, drain or spin


quite possible that the fuse has gone bad again, if that s the case i would recommend replacing the fuse, and the lid switch.

My maytag top washer want spin out


Check the drain pump. It could be blocked or jammed. Remove the front panel and the pump is easy to access. There will be a hose from the bottom of the outer drum to the drain pump. Remove plug from wall socket before attempting to remove any cover.
