Question about Maytag Washing Machines

1 Answer

Washer won't fill

Maytag Centennial Model #MVWC300XW. The machine is an HE top load. My mothers presses start and it starts to act like it is sensing the load, but nothing ever happens. It continues to make clicking sounds as it tries to sense the load to fill, but the water never comes in. It eventually turns itself off. Please help. My mother is on a very limited budget and I am not in the position to help right now. Thanks for your help.

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.

Could be that the belt has broken and triped the belt safty switch. If you reach into the dryer and rotate the drum in a clock wise rotation and it moves extreamly freely. It is probably the belt.

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

I have a Maytag Centennial top load washer. When washing in normal or heavy with large or super load size, the washer remains in sensing mode. Some water does start to fill, but never reaches wash cycle....


This unit does not handle a super large load as it advertised. When you put a super large load, the sensor is over-sized and will not move on the next cycle.

Unfortunately it sounds like your gearbox may be seized. I would strongly recommend getting an experienced maytag service agent in to have a look at it because they are quite difficult to repair. I'm sorry for the bad news, hope it helped though.
