My machine won't go into the spin mode at the end of the wash process. It drains normally but when it's supposed to SPIN it just reverts back to the 2 direction wash mode and continues that way until the dry cycle which works fine. All console buttons are in their proper position and they've been pressed in and out many times in case one may have been malfunctioning. Any thoughts? Thanx in advance.

Sorry if it may be too obvious, but have you checked the philtre? generally they stop spinning when it's stuffed... when you open it, make sure you have a mop and bucket handy, some water will come out!
Isyour washing machine displaying an error code? If so, try using the owner's manual to decipher the code and you may beable to easily diagnose the problem. The problem could be as simple as the doorbeing slightly ajar, the machine is in pause mode, or the spin selector isstuck. Checkthe handy chart in the article Washingmachine won't advance to washer spin cycle for more possible reasons why your washingmachine won't advance to washer spin cycle-and some tricks for getting itworking again.
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
I believe you are failing in spin cycle but that’s a wag without any error codes to go on.
With no error code it will require a bit more troubleshooting.If you start a Quick Wash cycle with minimal spin/soil settings I believe you will stop at the 21 min mark. Not sure what wash cycle you are in and Spin/Soil settings for that cycle but I believe this is the spin cycle of that wash cycle (34 min). I assume the washer did not pump out the water.The FAV6800A/FAV9800A is designed to start in the spin cycle with a fair amount of water in the wash tub so I assume you have water in the wash tub.You can enter Service Mode and turn on the drain pump to pump out the excess water.I’ll attach the process at the end of this post. Before we do that let’s gather some info for troubleshooting.I want you to do a Spin Only cycle with that wet wash load.Let me know if the Cycle completes.The FAV6800A/FAV9800A machines suffer from chronic clutch malfunctions which will cause failing in Spin Cycle usually with dC/uC unbalance errors.Can you complete a Spin Only cycle? My standard links for the DIY’er and can you let me know if you want to DIY the fix?Some folks can’t tolerate the down time and if you feel your aren’t qualified then I would recommend a qualified repair service.I’ll work with you until you decide to pull the plug on the DIY process. FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference.Sears Parts Direct for reference Pump out the excess water in the tub when failing in Spin Cycle; I would go to page 16 of the SM lower right hand part of page, Board Output Test and turn on the drain pump in service mode to pump out the tub. Enter Service Mode by simultaneously pressing and holding the Enviro Plus and Spin Only keys for three seconds or the display reads “00” Pressing the Delicates key will lock the lid. Now press the Presoak keythe drain pump will turn on. Stop with off button or hit the Presoak key. I’ll check back from time to time for your response.This board will not auto notify by e-mail of your response and most recently won’t let me post pics for troubleshooting support. If you are going to DIY and we have no error code to the display the next step is to remove the front cover of the machine start up a Spin Only cycle and see if the motor will turn the clutch pulley CCW.Just be careful of the belt and follow safety warnings in the Service Manual…..Rich If you want to work on this a bit quicker e-mail me at email@example.com
The most common cause of machines stopping mid cycle is not draining. Your machine should have a filter behind the kick plate at the bottom.
If this is not the case please post back for further assistance.
