I have a nec nw-691, when you put it on spin cycle it brings error message --lid open??? plz help

Yuo might try making sure it is still level but I'd just try using a lower spin speed. How have to use "gentle spin" when I wash towels or my washing machine has errors and stops. If still too damp just use a gentle spin only cycle once more to finish the job.

The washer fills with water, but it doesn't spin or wash.

Could be the safety lid/door switch. The newer models do not wash or spin if the door/lid is open.
You could get a much better answer by posting a model number. If this is a single belt washer it may just be the belt is broken

Washers isnt working

Most probably its your belt that has come off. Open up behind to check and refit. If belt is too loose, replace. The belt should "give" about half an inch after it is fitted. Or it would be too tight or too loose.

Dont forget to rate me please.

My performa 2300 makes a loud screech when it stops spinning. What is going on?

1 Answer

"howling" noise during spin cycle (still there after changing burned off belt)

Travioso, there was two service flashes out on this model concerning the seal and bearing which means they had an issue with this washer. The howling noise you are hearing is the bearing and will need the new designed triple seal and bearing kit. This should be covered under your warranty, I believe it is 5 years. The numbers for the service flashes are TDL-0048A-B. Call Maytag and inquire about these service flashes, these should be covered. Catriver.
