Question about Maytag MAT12CS Top Load Washer

1 Answer

Empty washing machine still unbalanced

My Maytag top load coin-op washing machine "unbalanced" light is on- even with no clothing within. I have spun the drum and turned the internal timer to "run" a load through. Once that "load" is done and I push the coin-filled coin tray in, I get the "unbalanced" light and no action (unless I intervene again with the timer). Any advice? Thanks!

    Interestingly enough I had tried rocking the machine a bit last night (before I got this answer) and when I went to try rocking again this AM the machine had somehow self-corrected- delayed response to my rocking last night? I'll never know, but I think your solution is the right one :) Thanks

    Machine was bouncing about and I turned it off, re balanced it then set it off again and it was fine. I have used it again today and it is leaking lots from underneath

Maytag washer won't shift to rapid spin dry (only slow back & forth)


Hi Jim, you issue could be caused by a couple either one of a of the following,
1) Draining problem, cant empty the water from the machine within the prescribed time limit - preventing the spin programme to commence. check pump filter is clear and waste water is pumping from the end of the waste hose, the hose itself could be blocked with limescale and detergent residue.
2) Unbalanced load, most machines wont spin 1 item, its a safety thing, if a machine spins with one heavy item it puts the drum out of balance resulting in excessive drum movement possibly damaging the inside of the machine and put indue stress on the bearings. Try putting it on a spin cycle with no clothes in

Unbalanced load detection can also be caused by a faulty motor tacho, this usaually positioned at the rear of the motor, this sends an electrical signal to the programmer telling when it is 'Safe' to spin. There also the posibility that the programmer is not reading the tacho signal or misinterpriting it.

Leep, open the hatch that the timer sits under. You will see the timer and actuator that the coin tray pushes to start the wash cycle. You can rotate this cam clockwise until it gets to it's home position, ususally right around the 12:00 position. Good luck
