Question about Maytag Dependable Care LAT9206
Hi, I am able to start my washer. The red light comes on, It fills with water. It then agitates for about 45 seconds before it stops. The red light stays on. If I turn the washer off and wait 20 minutes or so, I am able to pull the knob again that turns on the red light. It agitates another 45 seconds or so. Same thing again. This keeps up until I get to the rinse cycly. It fills with water. Then I am back to this start stop thing . Finally I get to the spin cycle and have to still keep doing this thing of starting the washer every 20 minutes or so for a few seconds work. It takes a really long time to get anything done like this. What is the problem? Also, I did not see the exact numbers that matched my maching. I pulled the panel down and there was a paper and the number on it was 584VA 1093 Maytag Dependable Care Washer 10 cycle.Thanks for your help. Lissa
It sounds as if there could be an overheating problem in the control electronics - perhaps just due to one faulty component that could be replaced, perhaps the whole board is faulty. If you have a user manual (sorry i had no luck finding one online), then just check if there is a "reset" - usually would be either unplugging the machine and leaving it for a few minutes, or pressing and holding a combination of buttons. (ask again if you don't have a manual, I can look more but Maytag manuals are hard to find) Are you keen to try and investigate this further yourself? If so please ask again and we can try and talk you through opening it up and what to check. You will most likely need a selection of screwdrivers, a flashlight, a digital camera and a few hours. If you would rather get a service agent in to have a look, please post back with your general area and we can hopefully locate one for you. There could also possibly be a motor fault, although I would expect an error message/light/beep to show if so, but perhaps not. It sounds repairable. Hope this helps :)

The inner tub on some machines does rotate very slowly while filling to assist with the even distibution of the load. If the agitator is turning back & forth while in fill mode, you could have a timer or transmission problem. You need a tech.
