    Are you sure it's not "Sud" ? If so, it would mean excessive suds are preventing the pump from draining the machine.

It appears your timer/main controller 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.

My washer runs non stop on the wash cycle...it washes the clothes but doesn't past the wash cycle...doesn't drain, rinse or spins. What can I do?


Can you manually rotate the timer control to the next steps?
Will it proceed thru the cycles when you rotate the timer manually?
If so, then you can complete the cycle manually for the time being...
If so-- then the clock motor that drives the timer.control is not advancing it.

If yours is a newer machine with all digital controls, then I suspect something wrong in that controller, too-- But I do not have any idea of how to 'advance it manually!
(The blessings of modern controllers!-- Give me the old clock motor driven drum controllers! :-) )

My Kenmore elite he3t is giving me a problem in the spin cycle. Even thought the spin setting is set on high or extra high, the drum turns very slowly and will eventually stop and the washer starts...


The machine will not advance to the high-speed spin cycle unless the water is drained first. The F02 error code manifests this condition as it means draining problem. Either the pump filter is blocked, the drain hose is clogged/kinked, the pressure switch is stuck in the full position, or the pump itself is not working. The display can be cleared by pressing the Pause/Cancel button twice.

Disconnect power and remove the three screws attaching the lower front access panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You can prop up the bottom front edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall to access and remove the screws more easily.

Once the panel is off, remove the filter by turning the knob counterclockwise. Clean the filter from any debris that prevents water from draining out properly. Click on the link below for further troubleshooting should the cleaning of the filter does not resolve the problem.

No error codes-washes but does not spin- water stuck in bottom


If your machine is a FAV6800A to FAV9800A here is the Service Manual.
If you lift the washer lid and rotate the wash basket CCW which is the Spin Cycle direction will it turn with very little resistance? It should not rotate CW.
With no error codes I would go to Service Mode page 14 of the Service Manual and read the current recorded Daig codes and write them down then clear the list.
Now start a Spin Only cycle with no clothes in the wash basket let it in that mode for about 5 minutes. Hit the off button to end the Spin Onlly cycle then check the Diag code block and see if an error event was logged if so please let us know.
If there is no error code generation by the Control Board in the Diag code blocks I would suspect a Control Board issue with your no Spin issue..
Without a known good Control Board and Motor Controller to swap out and no error code generation by the Control Board this would be a hard problem to troubleshoot.
The Control Board is under warranty for 5 yrs you could try Maytag Customer Service the number is in the SM and see if they will send you one even if the warranty is up…..Rich
