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.

SOURCE: Washer won't agitate, drain or spin

Hi Xinia_s

The lid switch needs to be replaced. although it seems to be working for the water intake valves it will not work for the motor. it is not the fuse. the main fuse sits right above the motor's start capacitor in the lower left side of the lower cabinet; had it been the fuse it would'nt even fill w/ water. have the lid switch replaced and it should do the trick.

Replace the "water inlet valve" on your machine. If you could post your model number I can point you to the part you need.

Why won't maytag MVWC6ESW go into rinse cycle?


The cold water valve screen in the washer water valve is clogged. You have grit in your water and it will continue to happen until you get a filter system installed on to it.

Starts washing before it begins to fill


Should have a tube that goes from the bottom of the washer tub to the control panel - check the hose for problems first; if none found - you will need to replace the water level switch. It is a pressure sensitive (diaphragm) sensor, that may have failed or stuck, causing a fault to the main controller/timer. I would favor a stuck diaphragm over a hose problem...
Hope this helps...

I have a Maytag Centennial washer, model number MVWC6ESWW, when I start the machine, it immediately starts agitating and adding water simeltaneously. At the end of the cycle, the clothes are soaking wet,...


I had the same issue. When I started the machine it began agitating and then began to fill as if it is beginning the second rinse cycle - well I think it was.... SO, I threw in some towels and began the cycle at the second rinse part of the cycle. Low and behold, the next load started and finished just fine.

I hope this helps. This is just one of many issues with this machine, but luckily I haven't had to call the repairman yet! They all seem to revolve around the thing being out of sync.

Beginning of wash cycle starts agitating instead of filling w/water.


the water pressure/level switch contacts are welded together,usually the load selector switch for the amount of water lets it fill to a determined water level and the water level creates pressure in a tube from the tub to this switch and stops water fill and starts the wash agitation cycle,replace this switch inside the control panel

Agitator starts at begining of cycle before washer is full


Please be carful as running the agitator without enough water will overheat and kick out the motor, however it should be ok when it resets itself.
Yes, the machine should stop agitating when you lift the lid so this too is part of the problem.
After looking at the print I can only suggest that the cam contacts in the timer ( contacts 12 and 14) that start the motor are burned and stuck together.
